"There is a law by which the house (the church) is governed; namely the law of love, and by this I mean the moral law, as it is a rule of life and holiness, not a rule of acceptance, (this were to make it a covenant of works) but a rule of obedience, in the hand of Christ. This is the law, which by Moses is reduced to ten words, ten commandments; and I call it a law of love, because our Lord Jesus reduced it to two words; namely love to God and love to our neighbor. And the Apostle reduced it to one word, Love. (1 Tim 1:5)."
