    36"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" 37Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'[c] 40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

    Romans 13
    8Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law. 9The commandments, "Do not commit adultery," "Do not murder," "Do not steal," "Do not covet," and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this one rule: "Love your neighbor as yourself."[c] 10Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

    Deuteronomy 6:5 Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

    [c] Leviticus 19:18 " 'Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.

    Zephaniah 3:2
    She obeys no one, she accepts no correction. She does not trust in the LORD, she does not draw near to her God.

    Hebrews 7:
    18The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless 19(for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God.

    Wonderful! So might I ask if there is a point? A greater meaning in which these passages should convict us? Help us out...

    Meat

    Those who are crying for meat,shouldn't need others to feed them. What are those passages speaking to you? One croup wants to put the yoke of the law back on men and another group wants to take it completly of men and unto God. Is there a middle ground?

    Many people who cry for the church to feed them meat are not ready for meat, if they were they wouldn't be crying for the church to feed them.

    Then you remove the churches responsibility to teach.

    Responsibilty

    Never remove the responsibility to preach.

    The difference between meat and milk is. Someone who is on milk needs someone else to feed them. Someone who is in the meat not only can feed themselves, but others.

    When Paul returned they were still needing milk. Many members who are crying for meat are still needing milk.

    Maturity is not a little group that know the truth and everyone else that does not believe what they believe is not. Maturity is one whole body with many members working as one.
