The Law of Love

“For 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.” -Galatians 5:13-14

“Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this: Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.” -Romans 13:8-10

“And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom, that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God.” -Mosiah 1:49 RAV, 2:17 OPV

“And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.” -Mark 12:29-31

“Thus did Alma teach his people that every man should love his neighbor as himself, that there should be no contention among them.” -Mosiah 11:16 RAV, 23:15 OPV

“And behold, it is written also that thou shalt love thy neighbor and hate thine enemy; but behold, I say unto you: Love your enemies; bless them that curse you; do good to them that hate you; and pray for them who 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; therefore, those things which were of old time, which were under the Law, in me are all fulfilled. Old things are done away, and all things have become new; therefore, I would that ye should be perfect, even as I or your Father who is in heaven is perfect.” -3 Nephi 5:89-92 RAV, 12:43-49 OPV
