  1. “I think he is simply pointing out some no-brainers as if to say that since we love God and love others…” Could we say that this love “obviates” any list of commands? (This way of terming this point has been running through my mind lately.)

    • “Obviate” is an interesting way of putting it; I think the more traditional word is “fulfill”. Yet in essence, “obviate” is really what’s happening here, for when we put our love into action, the ‘rulebook’ is defacto irrelevant

  2. I agree. It’s not the Law of Christ, necessarily. It’s what love looks like in action. There are a lot of similarities between this and the Sermon on the Mount. Paul seems to be expounding on it further.
