As Jesus is the cornerstone upon which the Church is built, so are his teachings the unifying cornerstone of Christian doctrine.
Most Important Legal Principle
A Spirituality of Self-Surrender,
Love of God,
and Love of Neighbor
What is the most important legal principle in our lands? In the United States constitution perhaps the words, “We the people” summarize the most important statutory rule. British law which guarantees equality for all contradicts itself by guaranteeing prerogatives of the royal family above others. The Chinese constitution clarifies a citizen’s fundamental rights and duties. The European Constitution guarantees human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality and a free market. When asked what was the most important part of the law (Matthew 22:34-46) Jesus enumerated two: the most important is love of God and the second most important is love of neighbor. British law makes our royal neighbor’s prerogatives more than our own. God’s law makes all people equal in our responsibility to love one another as ourselves. Nobody may be loved more or less than ourselves. God makes us equals.
