That the Bible expressly recognizes love as the fulfilling of the law, and as expressly denies, that anything else is acceptable to God. “Therefore love is the fulfilling of the law” (Romans 13:10). “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity (love), I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity (love), it profiteth me nothing” (1 Cor. 13:1-3).
