When Jesus was asked which of the Ten Mosaic commandments were the most important, he made the following recorded reply: Luke 10:27 "And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy god with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself." In fact, the subject of loving your neighbour arises originally in the Old Testament of the Jews: Lev. 19:18 " … love thy neighbour as thyself:" Prov 11:12 "He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace." Prov 14:21 "He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth:" Zec 8:17 "And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour;" but the subject appears repeatedly throughout the New Testament: Matt 19:19 "…Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." Matt 22:39 "…Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." Mark 12:31 "…Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." Mark 12:33 "…and to love his neighbour as himself … " Rom 13:9-10 "Love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour." Gal 5:14 "…Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." James 2:8 "…Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." also: Matt 5:43-44 "Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you" The last point is very important because it relates to your enemy being your neighbour, expounded on elsewhere: Rom 12:14 "Bless them which persecute you: bless and curse not" Matt 6:14-15 "For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: but if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses" Luke 6:27-29 "Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, bless them that curse you ... And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other." Matt 5:39 "But I say unto you, that ye resist not evil; but whooever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also." If this is so, then the foundationist for all Christendom is not about sins, sinning, or salvation, but about love and compassionate action. The words of Jesus Himself dictate what the foundation for his followers should be. So sad that his words have become mute as Christianity insists on following laws and regulations, creeds and council regulations. I say anyone who calls himself Christian need accept this and this only, as Jesus himself stated: to love God and all. Everything else becomes irrelevant to the follower of Jesus.
