English term or phrase: Jesus loves you
Thank you in advance for any help
Vic Jury
Dutch translation:Jezus houdt van jou
Explanation:
Not "van u", because often the context is quite informal. It is often used as propaganda on a button, for example. Then "u" is too static. This term is also used by young people in a certain evangelical context. Good luck! (by the way, the statement is a correct one as well, in my opinion at least).

Jezus houdt van u


Explanation:
The first answer sounds strange to me. This gets a few hits on the internet. It could also be: "Jezus houdt van jou", e.g. when addressing young people. Eva
