The greatest of these is...

Often, it is assumed that love is the greatest of all but the text says (1Cor 13:13) 'greatest of these'. What are the 'these' in context of 1Cor 13? They are faith and hope.

In this PC/ecumenically charged environment, what gets trampled on and sacrificed on Rodney King's Altar of 'Can't we all just get along?' is "Truth", for without truth those 'truths' in 1Cor 13 would be served on a platter of lies totally unrecognizable from their current form.

IOW the 'truth' about love would be non existent without truthful words expressing love.
