Here are the scriptures in support of Christ commanding us to love one another.

John 13:34 NASB - 34 "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

John 15:12 NASB - 12 "This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.

John 15:17 NASB - 17 "This I command you, that you love one another.
John 1:41, 49 NASB - 41 He found first his own brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which translated means Christ). 49 - Nathanael answered Him, "Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel."

What can we say is the difference between the way we live and what the Law states? Are Christians to observe God's Law? What is God's Law? Can the Law of Moses be used in Evangelism? Can a person instruct someone else in regard to any command found in the Law? Is the Law only to show sin in a person? Is it possible to keep any one law? Can the Law be spoken of as that which is to be observed and obeyed? Does it make a difference if a person is of Israel, a Jew, Jewish, or not? Do some people observe more or less of the Law? Is it good to do better at obeying God's Law? Can anyone today say they observe God's Law? Is it impossible to observe the Law? Do new covenant believers observe the Law? Is the Law of Moses God's Law? Is the law of Christ God's Law? Is there such a thing as new covenant law? Does anyone observe something called new covenant law? How can we minister to those without the law? We are not without the law, either in evangelism or in regard to what we do and how we obey God and His Law or God and Christ.

Do believers obey God's Law? Is it possible to be saved without obeying God or without seeing the need to obey God? Can a person come to faith and then obey God? Is faith obedience to God?
