GOD'S ONE COMMANDMENT TO BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS
* 1 John 3:11, 23 - "For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another....And this is His Commandment, that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as He gave us Commandment."
* Matthew 5:43-45 - "Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; that ye may be the children of your Father Who is in heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust."
ALL OF THE LAW IS FULFILLED IN THIS ONE THING
* Galatians 5:1, 13-14 - "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage....For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the Law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself."
