The Law of Love - Richard Leonard SJ
In the Christian context law is not meant to be used as a weapon, but as a tool to set us free, to be the best people we can be.
“Christians do not follow laws as such, we follow Christ.”
“ …the way Jesus and John and Paul use the concept of the law of love is not as a book of rules to obey but as a wellspring that guides all choices, determinations, decisions, and even some duties in our lives.”
Leonard challenges us to “reclaim love as the definitive point of Christian revelation using great biblical texts on the law of love: The Ten Commandments; The Beatitudes; the Lord’s Prayer; Love God and love your neighbour as yourself; and 1 Corinthians 13 which says love is kind and patient.” CLICK HERE TO ORDER A COPY
