God's Only Law is Love!

-- What the Bible says about TRUE FREE LOVE!

By David Brandt Berg, July 29, 1977
God's Only Law is Love!


For Jesus FULFILLED the law and became the end of the law so that it PASSED AWAY: "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to FULFILL."..."For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth." (Mt.5:17; Heb.7:12,18; Rom.10:4)

JESUS THEREFORE BROUGHT A NEW LAW OF LOVE, God's ONLY law for the lovers of Jesus! Now God's ONLY law for us is LOVE, which more than fulfills the Mosaic Law: "Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God...and thy neighbour as thyself...On these hang all the law and the prophets." "Owe no man anything, but to love one another: For he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law." "For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. But the fruit of the Spirit is love...against such there is no law." (Mat.22:36-40; Rom.13:8; Gal.5:14,22,23)

WE ARE SAVED BY FAITH IN GOD'S LOVE, HIS MERCY AND HIS GRACE AND TRUTH IN JESUS CHRIST. Therefore the Apostle James says that we who do the will or the LOVE of God now dwell under a NEW law, a PERFECT law of LIBERTY, FREEDOM from the old law. (Jam.1:25) Therefore since we do all that we do in LOVE, ALL THINGS are NOW lawful to us in LOVE, including our SEXUAL FREEDOM, as long as it is done in the unselfish, sacrificial LOVE of GOD. (1Cor.6:12; 10:23) "ALL THINGS are LAWFUL unto me."

NO, WE DO NOT HAVE TO KEEP THE TEN COMMANDMENTS! For us they are NO MORE! For us they are GONE FOREVER! Thank God! We now only have to keep GOD'S LAW of LOVE, His ONLY law--LOVE! For the laws of Moses are no more to the believer in Jesus! We now only have the LAW of JESUS, God's only law, His LOVE!-A stronger law than Moses'!

THEREFORE WHATSOEVER YOU DO IN THE UNSELFISH SACRIFICIAL LOVE OF JESUS IS RIGHT AND LAWFUL! Whatever you do in LOVE is the LAW--and that's ALL, that's it! God's ONLY LAW is LOVE!... Now ALL things are lawful unto us in LOVE, Praise God! As long as it's done in LOVE it keeps God's ONLY LAW of LOVE!

HAVE YOU ACCEPTED GOD'S LOVE IN JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR OWN PERSONAL SAVIOUR? Do you have God's Spirit of JESUS in your heart? Do you LOVE HIM and OTHERS as much as you do YOURSELF? Do you do unto OTHERS as you would have them do unto YOU?

If so, you are FREE from the old dead Mosaic Laws! Now all you must do is keep JESUS' LAW of LOVE! But it is GREATER and STRICTER even than the old Mosaic Law, because now EVERYTHING you do must be done in HIS LOVE!

May God bless you with His TRUTH, FREEDOM and LOVE!

My name is James Arendt. I was raised in the Hegewisch neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, served in the USAF from 1970 to 1974, and became a full-time missionary for Christ living 40 years in Japan, 3.5 years in Russia, and a few months in other countries such as Finland, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, South Korea, Taiwan and mainland China where I also served the King of Kings, Jesus, as an Ambassador for His Kingdom. My full bio.

On September 24, 2023, I had an accident and broke the bone of the tip of my left elbow. A boy ran in front of my motorbike less than 2 meters from me as I was leaving home. I stopped suddenly and my front tire slid on the sandy concrete road which caused me to fall. I did not hit the boy. On October 18th I had surgery done on my elbow. The doctor put in titanium rods to hold my bones together. The entire procedure including an entire week in the hospital was roughly $4000 USD. This was done in the Philippines where my wife and I have been living since June this year.

X-rays of bone before and after surgery that inserted titanium rods to reinforce my broken bone.

Before and after one week in the hospital.

Undergoing therapy to bend my arm again.
I'm now undergoing therapy to be able to bend my arm again.

It would be a super blessing to us if any of the visitors of this website can help us cover this expense!

Hello,I disagree with you saying we no longer have to keep the 10 commandments. When it states:Love the Lord your God, and love your neighbor as thyself it was in no way annuling the 10 commandments. It was only summarizing that if you love the Lord you would be keeping 4 of the commandments, and if you love your neighbors you would be keeping the other 6 commandments; which means you would be keeping all the commandments.
Nowhere in the New Testament does it talk about Sabbath day observance. Please read Acts chapter 15. The Gentiles were required to observe only 4 laws, and Sabbath day observance was NOT included!!!

Laws don't legitimize man. Laws are man's efforts to legitimize his/her morality. God's law is love and is written on every man/woman's heart so that they are without excuse.
The Laws of Moses are the schoolmaster that reveals the foolishness of man. If you subscribe to the validity of the Laws of Moses you have not seen the completed work of God in your heart just yet. Don't despair, the plow is still tilling the soil.

You did great in your article, but you lost me when you said, we do not have to keep the ten commandments, for us they are no more. I supposed I should then go and kill, steal, covet my neighbors goods and even love Satan instead of God when He declared not to have any other gods before Him. Did not Paul asked a rhetorical question, should we then continue in sin that grace may abound? God forbid!Romans 6:1 We are still in the moral laws, if possible live peaceably with one another, and living ... Read More

"For neither circumcision counts for anything nor uncircumcision, but keeping the commandments of God" (1 Cor 7:19). Circumcision was not a law for the Gentiles, but for the Jews. Here, Paul is saying that we must keep the commandments. The commandments still define sin, and Jesus did not remove them. He fulfilled them, meaning that we can now be perfect by his sacrifice, even when we screw up. Speaking of "screwing up," what the heck do you mean by "free love?" ... Read More
