Main point summary
Those who show partiality violate the law of love, and are as transgressors of the law of sin and death. For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Therefore, speak and act as those who are being judged by the law of the kingdom of God, fulfilling its decrees by loving your neighbor.
