With the fall of Adam and Eve human beings separated themselves from God. They, therefore, wrote the laws in a language that lacked the Spirit of God. These laws, therefore, prescribed stoning to death as a punishment for adultery (Deuteronomy 22:22), and permitted divorce (Mark 10:4) and revenge (Leviticus 24:1`9-21). Furthermore, their writings often described God as jealous, revengeful and violent. However, in the fullness of time God took a human form and lived amongst us to ransom us from the law by putting His Spirit in our hearts (Galatians 4: 4-6). Furthermore, by humbling Himself to take a human form and by enduring suffering and death to save us (who betrayed, abused and killed Him) from sin; He showed us that He is faithful, meek, humble, patient, selfless, gentle, all-forgiving, non-condemning, merciful and infinite in love. He also showed us that to love others is to sacrifice our own interest in the process of helping those who hurt and betray us; and commands us to love others the way He loved us (John 15:12).
To live by His Spirit, therefore, is to live a life of unconditional love. We must therefore forgive our transgressors without any limit (Luke 17:4); fight evil with love; sacrifice our own interest in order to help those who hurt and betray us; give to everyone who asks and not demand back what others have taken from us; give our shirt as well if someone takes our coat; offer the other cheek if someone slaps us on one; love our enemies; pray for those persecute us (Matt. 5: 39-40; Luke 6: 27-36; Matt. 5: 44); never to divorce our spouse (Mk 10:11-12, Luke 6:18; Matthew 5: 31-32); and prefer to be wronged or robbed than to wrong others or rob them (1Cor. 6:7).
