There are people in this world who believe that our world would be transformed if only people would obey their interpretation of their God's rules.
They are probably right. The thing is that not even they are able to keep their own rules all the time - although some of them spend plenty of time telling off the other rule breakers. Hypocrisy is as ugly today as it was when Jesus walked the planet. Maybe that's why he said, "If you love me, you will keep my commandments."
But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees with his reply, they met together to question him again. One of them, an expert in religious law, tried to trap him with this question: "Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?"
Jesus replied, "`You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: `Love your neighbour as yourself.' The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments."
