Could someone clarify Romans 13:8 Love Fulfills the Law.
Owe nothing to anyone, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
I just heard the most confusing interpretation of the above Scripture:
I was told that if you have truly loved then the law has been fulfilled. Which basically means that love cancels out the law. Right after theres a whole list like adultery, murder, stealing, etc, but love cancels it all out.
Huh??? What? I thought sin separates us from God and that God cannot be near any sin so why would it be ok if I sin? If I love God then I do not want to offend Him and I have a deep hatred for sin.
Do they mean that I should understand that if I do sin, then its ok don't worry, Jesus still loves you, repent and restore your relationship with God and try really hard not to sin? I was thinking they were confused regarding the Law (the 10 commandments) and the Law (Torah 616 extra pharisee laws). Because if your explaining this to someone, this is very misleading that the 10 commandments don't matter anymore. And if thats the case, well no wonder this world is in the state its in!
