By definition, God can't be love

I've heard it over and over, 'God is love'. Christians will often gush this sentiment with a smile plastered across their face. But why do they do this when the Bible clearly shows that God can't be, and isn't love?

They will cite 1 John 4:8 as their proof.
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
But the Bible goes on to do what it does best... Contradict itself!
for the LORD your God in your midst is a jealous God...
-Deuteronomy 6:15
Love is patient, love is kind, love is not jealous...
-1 Corinthians 13:4
So according tho the testimony of those two verses, God can't be love because he is jealous. But the rest of 1Corinthians 13:4-5 is even more damning...
Love is patient. Love is kind. Love isn't jealous. It doesn't sing its own praises. It isn't arrogant. It isn't rude. It doesn't think about itself. It isn't irritable. It doesn't keep track of wrongs.
Love is kind: Like when God allowed Job's entire family to be killed to win a bet?

Love isn't jealous: We already covered that one...

Love doesn't sing its own praises: Like when God bragged about all that he has done in Job 38?

Love isn't arrogant: What part of creating us solely to love and worship him isn't arrogant?

Love isn't rude: His bet that screwed over Job was pretty rude. So was condoning slavery and commanding rape victims to marry their rapist.

Love doesn't think about itself: The whole demanding to be worshiped deal is a pretty big deal breaker here.

Love isn't irritable: Irritable like commanding and leading genocides (including a global one) because he didn't get his way or people were worshiping other gods?

Love doesn't keep track of wrongs: So what about sin then? If there's no tracking of wrongs does everyone just get into Heaven now?

It should be clear that the Bible is quite contradictory, and those contradictions can often show how ridiculous some Christian claims really are. The Bible may say that God is love, but is also proves that he can't be many more times.
