How exactly can requiring or "allowing" or whatever you believe about the crucifixion be called love? Your god didn't think the Jews needed?
a human sacrifice, so why did god decide all of a sudden that it was necessary?

"All of a sudden"? Eph. 3:10-11, 2 Tim. 1:9, Titus 1:2, Eph. 1:4.

When one is creating an new or breaking away from the old they 'need' specifics to distinguish from and to obligate others to join theirs.

The sacrifice was not to appease the Father in heaven but to appease the demands of Satan.
The challenge was given by Satan that no human could live a full life with out sinning. To provide the ultimate test (sense all other avenues had failed) Jesus had to be subjected to an ordeal of pain and physical suffering. The object being that Satan was sure that Jesus would curse God and die.
It was only by proving Satan wrong that the keys of death and hades could be taken from him. It took a painful death to prove Satan wrong. Most of us can get hurt enough with a hammer hitting our thumb to "curse". But Jesus had spikes driven through his body and still he did not curse. Instead he "forgave".

Without Jesus' infinite punishment for sin in the quiet hours before his arrest, the vast majority of God's children would be lost to him forever. Admit it. The vast majority of us sin.
Without Jesus' death and resurrection, he could never resurrect us into tangible, physical life, health, and immortality.

It isn't love. It cannot be love. Ever.
See how they keep on playing the semantic game even though you included "allowed or whatever you believe"?
They have no excuse for such a barbaric god that calls death and suffering "love".

Human sacrifice was not "required" by God. It wasn't something that came about all of a sudden. The cross was planned and orchestrated for centuries.

Read Matthew 5:17-20. Here Jesus teaches that he was Not here to start a new religion; but to fix the Jewish religion. Also requiring us to Keep Obeying All of the 613 Commandments that God gave to Moses!
In Acts and on, that Christians met in the Synagogs in the evenings! ...
Most Christian religions are just being too lazy, thus every disobedient these days!
It was not until 304/5 AD that the very disobeying Catholic religion was dreamed up and disobeying the Bible so much was started!
How about If you read the all honest Bible?

God decided it was necessary even before the world began. Everyone in the old testement was looking forward to Jesus that's what their sacrifice symbolized and everyone in the new testement including the jews today look back to Him. It wasnt just a human sacrifice. God gave the life of His only Begotten Son. Jesus choose to give His life to save us all. He was fully God and fully human. Would you give your life to save people who hate you?Thats more than love. Thats not even a fear deal.

it was the plan all along right from the beginning to glorify Gods Son among all created beings ..its mirrored throughout scripture the law and prophets, and counterfeited throughout pagan religions ..

None of it ever happened, its just ancient superstition.
