      I don't understand the question.  Would you rephrase it, please?

      hang all  the laws on two commandments,
      Love God with all you heart ,mind and soul
      Love your neighbor as thyself

      Exorter is right.
      If you love God, and you love each other as you love your self, you will automatically do the others.  Don't treat any one in a way that you don't want to be treated yourself.

      What's the difference between a duck?

      Yes you can have works without laws, but it takes being completely in tune with God by His Holy Spirit. Unfortunately, few have ever been so in tuned to the Holy Spirit as to be directed in such a way as to persistently set aside personal interest for the interest of others. From time to time we all give in to an inordinate need for self-protection. This fear and lack of faith cause us to do things that we would otherwise not do and hate ourselves for after we have done them.

        Humans are flawed and you talk about a perfect system. Which proves a god does not exist nor does a "holy" or "divine" spirit.

        There is only spirit of man/woman. Your being is confined to human nature. To say otherwise is delusional irrational speech. hmm

        It has nothing to with a god Sofs.

        It has to do with common sense and wisdom of understanding life.

        Sorry, No god required. hmm

          Common sense isn't common.  Theists demonstrate that daily.

                Actually, you're perception is skewed.

                I don't argue to argue. I simply pass along knowledge and wisdom I've discerned as truth.

                So, try again.

              They don't discuss, they continue to copiously drool, lie, and demonstrate their amorality and vast ignorance.

          So Cagsil I'm interested, how many people do you know who have loved in this way:

          Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
          Love never fails.

            ecogginsposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Or how many people do you know who actually love their enemies? Who go the extra mile for those who hate them? Who are willing to suffer for those who persecure them?

              persecute them

            Cagsilposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Interesting you even bothered to post. It's obvious that you're delusional about understanding "Love" itself. Just because, you're claiming "Love" is all that stuff, yet leave out so much.

            You act like "Love" is perfect. If that were the case, then NO human would be able to "Love" constantly.

            Sorry, your ideology is flawed.

            may be you don't need God . Thats upto you.  This whole thread is based on a verse from the scripture, that salvation depends not on works....
            Anyways, you cannot convince people who have closed their eyes to somethings
            I am not even trying!!
            God bless you

                Strange that you hate so much what you don't understand. You can say liar, liar but the truth is you lie to yourself.

                God Bless

                  Another lying projecting xian.  How pathetic that spotlighting xian dishonesty, ignorance, and the like is automatically termed 'hate.'

                  If y'all don't like the observations then stop the actions which are being observed.

                  Be daring.  Address the points raised.  You follow your father Satan well.

      When I read this question, my first answer is faith without works is dead. Without faith its impossible to please God. So if we were to put our faith into practice, we would simply not disobey God. This is a faith walk. And if we are walking in faith and not by sight, we would practice keeping all the commandments.

      No you can not have works without God's laws. God's laws keep us governed, so that we can have good works.

      I will also say this....When God created the heavens and the earth and all that was within...his works was evidence of his laws. Some call it the laws of nature. I call it the evidence of things not seen.

        When one re-labels and re-defines things to form-fit their beliefs, they are exhibiting the incapacity of not being able to distinguish reality from fantasy and must blend them together as one.  smile

        As to the rest, you really need to learn to distinguish fact from abject fictional horror stories.
