"If ye fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself, ye do well." James 2:8
IN JESUS TODAY!
The Royal Law is Love! Love thy neighbor as thyself, we need to be loyal to love and not to sin, not to pleasure, but rather to this royal law. If we talk about the laws of the land, we talk about right actions, when we talk about the judicial law we talk about the body of laws that govern, when we consider the constitution it is the highest law of the land, but what are we saying today about moral law? This royal law or golden rule as it has been called by others, is not just a nice word to read, or a good intention to follow, it is a law that ought to be self-enforced as the others are! With this law we need to sort-of police ourselves because there is no outside enforcement, yet it is one of the greatest laws that exists, by doing this law we would see a new society, a society that loves, a society that is not silent about helping the hurting, and a society that has no discrimination, murder, hate, theft, and the many crimes that are perpetrated against others, we would see a society without prisons, without guns, without terror and on and on! This Royal law is the answer to all, no need to create another law, just enforce this law! When we are loyal to this law we are given a title from God, as it is written, "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people: that ye should show forth the praise of him who called you out of the darkness into his marvelous light." 1 Peter 2:9 Why a Priesthood? Because we abide by this Royal Law of loving our neighbor as ourselves!
"And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore." Isaiah 2:4
