NO LAW BUT LOVE!
Christ Abolished the Law
“Having abolished in His flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in Himself of two one new man, so making peace” (Ephesians 2:15).
We Are Delivered from the Law
“But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter” (Romans 7:6).
We Are Not Under the Law
“For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the law, but under grace” (Romans 6:14).
We Have Been Made the Righteousness of God
“For He has made Him to be sin for us, Who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him” (II Corinthians 5:21).
The Law Was Not Made for a Righteous Man
“Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man …” (I Timothy 1:9).
Nothing Is Unclean of Itself
“I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him who esteems anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean” (Romans 14:14).
All Things Are Pure unto the Pure
“Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them who are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled” (Titus 1:15).
All Things Are Lawful
“All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any” (I Corinthians 6:12).
“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not” (I Corinthians 10:23).
Love Is the Fulfilling of the Law (Reaches Its Goal)
“Owe no man anything, but to love one another: for he who loves another has fulfilled the law … Therefore love is the fulfilling of the law” (Romans 13:8-10).
“For, brothers, you 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; `You shall love your neighbor as yourself’…” (Galatians 5:13).
