Love is the Law

  • If you love God, you will obey his commands.
  • If you are not obeying God’s commands, you do not love God.
  • If you love God, you will love your neighbor.
  • If you do not love your neighbor, you are not obeying God’s commands.
  • If you do not love your neighbor, you do not love God.

What, then, does it mean to love your neighbor?

Funny you should ask. God gave us a book all about it.

Update: After I wrote this, I listened to another sermon from Jim Staley called “Love vs. Law.” It’s good, but quite long.
