Owe no man anything, but to love one another, for he whloves another has fulfilled the law
for the commandments, you shall not commit adultry, you shall not murder, you shall not
steal, you shall not bear false witness and if there is other commandment are all summed
up in this saying, you shall love your neibor as yourself. ( end quote).

these are the commandments of Jesus Christ. So if we follow all the above, that means we
are in good standing with the Lord. Everything else is our guidance For life in Christ.

Jesus said they were the most important commandments because everything else hangs on them.

If you love your neighbor the way you love yourself, you will not hurt your neighbor in a way you would not want to be hurt. That cuts out a LOT of sin.

How does a person love GOD and their neighbor since although men love the law of GOD after the Inward man ,they see another law warring against the law of their mind,bringing them Into captivity to the law of sin which Is In there flesh?

Paul is adamant in teaching us that there is, 'after-conversion' a real 'struggle' against
our 'flesh and our new-nature', but He gives Christ's 'remedy' in Galatians, -
GAL. 5:16.
This I say then, Walk in The Spirit, and you shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17.
For the flesh lusts against The Spirit, and The Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary
the one to the other: so that you cannot do the things that you would.
but,
22.
But the fruit of The Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23.
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24.
And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25.
If we live in The Spirit, let us also walk in The Spirit.
26.
Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

I was trying to say that a person cannot keep the law because of the weakness of the flesh,the only way a person Is going to love GOD and love their neighbor Is GOD has to do a work In them first and the only way to come to GOD Is to first repent In Truth.
I wasn’t sure If you were saying that a person has to try to love their neighbor In their own strength without GOD creating their Spirit new.
