The Basic Law of God: Love and Love Alone

"Love all your fellow men, even your enemies. This is the most basic thing. Always love not only those who love us, but also those that hate us. Let us forgive them and love them all even if they have done us the greatest evil; then we are truly children of God. Then our own sins are also forgiven... Always preach love. This is the most basic law of God: love and love alone."

Elder George, Precious Vessels of the Holy Spirit: The Lives & Counsels of Contemporary Elders of Greece (Protection of the Veil Press: Thessalonica, 2003) p. 189
