Thanks-but really, that is not the context of my disagreement. My disagreement is where some can attribute salvation to a religion outside of Christ, as the poster was implying. In fact, his personal profile says basically that in a nutshell. read it and then youl'll see that he is trying to say that salvation does not have to come through Christ.
And... it's not called the golden rule. It is a general statement that if you love God and man, you will refain from breaking any of the commandments. All the commandments did was tell us that God wanted us to love Him and our fellow man. That doesn't mean that we have to accept what they say as gospel-when it isn't.
There is abig difference between loving your neighbor, and believing his lies.
I agree with you. That is why I referenced the versus immediately following it. I understand that Christ does not call it "The golden rule". I was only providing the reference to what "the world" typically refers to as the "golden rule" in the Bible. Perhaps I should just have placed a "bump" there but I wanted to include the warnings in the scripture that followed that verse. People tend to select only what they want to hear.
