"The keys of the Kingdom will empower you to live the Law of Love."
Is Love Against the Law?
First Published January 1978
Whatsoever we do in word or in deed we're to do all to the glory of God and we're to do it all in love. "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God." (1Corinthians 10:31) If we are keeping God's law of love then we'll try not to hurt or offend anybody, we'll do our best to try to live in love, to help people without offending anyone. We can't very well help offending the false church, because of its false lies and false doctrines and false laws which are contrary to the law of God.
Jesus himself couldn't please the scribes and the pharisees no matter what he did, and they finally hung Him! He offended them no matter what He did, because he preached that you don't have to keep the so-called Mosaic law, all you have to do is love.
The whole doctrine of love is contrary to the doctrine of law, the doctrine of hate, the doctrine of enforcement and the doctrine of fear and terror. Therefore we lovers of love and the Lord are going to run afoul of the lovers of the law and legalism, and we cannot possibly please them because love is love and law is law and never the twain shall meet.
God's only law is love, and if what you're doing you're doing in love and you're not hurting any innocent party, then it is perfectly legal for you according to God's law of love.
Jesus said the law of love is all the law, as well as all the prophets. "Jesus said unto him, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."" (Matthew 22:37-40) That's pretty broad coverage. That takes in the entire old testament, the law and the prophets. ... so Jesus said that's the whole works, the whole Bible, that's all the law--love.
Love is the most important thing, the love of God, unselfish, pure, sacrificial love, no matter how it's manifested.
If you love your neighbour as yourself, you'll put yourself in his place, and wonder how you would feel if you were there, and wonder what you would want and need to have fulfilled...against such love there is no law. So love.
