As Jesus is the cornerstone upon which the Church is built, so are his teachings the unifying cornerstone of Christian doctrine.

The Greatest Principle of Life

What is the greatest principle of living an outstanding life? The Ten Commandments say, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20; Deuteronomy 5). Exalting the self, money, or anything above God is a delusion, because no one and nothing is greater than God. Ancient nations worshipped false gods. It destroyed them (Jeremiah 3:6-9, 5:7, Ezekiel 16:38, 23:37, Hosea 1:2). Such foolish self-deception is living a lie. The greatest commandment of all is, “love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.” (Deuteronomy 6:5, Matthew 22:37-38, Mark 12:29-30, Luke 10:27-28). The greatest principle of life is loving God first.
