Some people claim that there is no need to keep the law because 'love is the fulfillment of the law'. Is this claim accurate?

Let's determine whether we should follow the law, regardless of whether love fulfills it or not.

Quoting [Romans 13:10], some assert, "Because love is said to be the fulfillment of the law, in the New Testament era, to practice love is to keep the perfect law."

The apostle Paul, who wrote the words should not keep the Sabbath and feasts. But he kept the Sabbath and feasts.

[Act 17:2]
   As his custom was, Paul went into the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures,

And also he kept Passover.

[1 Corinthians 5:7]
     Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast--as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.

Hence, the phrase 'love is the fulfillment of the law' does not imply that the Sabbath or feasts should not be observed.

So, what does that mean?

The phrase 'love is the fulfillment of the law' clarifies the attitude that we must ultimately adopt while obeying the law of Christ.

The law of Christ encompasses the profound love of God, who sacrificed Himself to save us, sinners.

Whenever God's people observe the law of Christ, which is the feast of the new covenant, in spirit and in truth, they inscribe in their hearts the love of God, who sacrificed for our salvation, enabling them to love God with all their heart and to practice Christ's love for their neighbors. Through this process, they will gradually be reborn as God's people.

Through the law of Christ, God transforms us into children who reflect His own nature of love.

Hence, in order to attain love, which is the fulfillment of the law, we must wholeheartedly observe the law of Christ.


The WMSCOG knows that 'love is the fulfillment of the law' means to both obey God's commandments and to love one another.

    I agree with you. 'love is the fulfillment of the law' means to both obey God's commandments and to love one another. As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead( James 2:26). I f we love God we must keep the commands of God (Jn14:15). The WMSCOG keeps the New Covenant to obey God's words and love God.

    You should understand the meaning of "love is the fulfillment of the law." Through the New covenant Jesus established for us, we can be transformed into the love of God.
    Rather, Jesus said, "If you love me, keep my commandments."
    By keeping the law of the new covenant, you can realize full love and practice the love of Christ.

    2,000years ago, the Apostle Paul followed the example of Jesus who was the Savior in the age of the son. He could received the salvation by keeping the truth such as Sabbath day, Passover and so on according to the teachings of Jesus. Likewise we can receive salvation through keeping the commandments of God which established by God’s love according to the teaching of Heavenly Father and Mother

    We should know the true meaning of "love is the fulfillment of the law". It doesn't mean that we don't need to keep the laws anymore. Actually it is opposite. we can love throug the keeping the law. We can't achieve love without the law. Therefore we should keep the law to love!

    By keeping the law of Christ, we can realize the love of God who saves us. You too can practice that love. We must keep the law of Christ. The law of Christ is the law established by God's love and sacrifice.

    We must keep the New Covenant, the law of Christ as revealed in the Bible. That is the perfection of love.


  • 2023-05-11 13:13

    Amen! I'll keep the new covenant

    What is the proof of love?
    Jesus said 'If you love me, keep my commands'
    According to the taught of Jesus, Apostles who obeyed the Jesus kept the New covenant.
    So, We who obeyed second coming Jesus must keep New covenant.

    Right. When it comes to the words of God, we shouldn't add our thoughts to them. Let's think of why Jesus kept the Sabbath and the Passover. If we hadn't needed to keep God's commandments, Jesus would not have set examples of keeping them. The reason why Jesus set an example is that He wanted us to follow what he has done. Let's keep the Sabbath and the Passover of the New Covenant as Jesus kept.
