Super Duper Important Verses

These are all from the New International Version 1985 printing:

Matthew 22:37-40—“Jesus replied: “‘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.”

Romans 12:1—“Therefore I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship.”

Romans 14:1—“Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters.”  And, Romans 14:13 continues—“Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another.  Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother’s way.”



I am a wife, mother, and professional musician working in academia.  My life brings me in close contact with wildly varying people and  personalities.  From this I’ve discovered that the Church is often seen as a nasty and judgmental place.  What can we do to change that?  Get back to the basic teachings of Christ and the greatest commandment—Love your neighbor.
