The Golden rule? Where is it in the Bible?

Tonye Brown // 1:04 PM // ,
What is the Golden Rule?This post is sort of a continuation of my last one.
I want to clear the air and tell the truth the way it is.

There is a golden rule (if you want to call it that) in the Bible, but it is not that "You shall love your neighbour as yourself".

The Golden rule is this: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind."

Proof:
It's in the pudding... I mean Bible:
Matthew 22:37-40
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

So there you have it.

If there's one Golden rule, it is to put God [and His commandments first] then love your fellow humans.
Notice that it says All the law and prophets hang [or are derived or based on] those two commandments? ;)

That is what Jesus Christ actually showed us by sacrificing Himself on our behalf.

Selah
