"Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40 NKJV)
"Once a person looks at God through the perception of Christ we will find that God sent Jesus with one main concern to restore His relationship with His human creation and to restore the broken relationship between male and female. Contrary to popular belief Jesus was not focused on following the minute details of the laws as much as He was focused on reconciling the heart of humanity back to God again. Jesus accomplished His mission to restore God's original plan for relationships by allowing Himself to become God's final sacrifice delivered to humanity clothed in God's love, grace, and mercy. "

“The main goal of Christians who believe in Jesus Christ should be to see our own need to repent and live inside of God's boundaries of love sent through Christ; Once this is accomplished we can fulfill our ultimate purpose to love, respect, and value God, ourselves, and others.”
