The one who truly loves one’ self does not focus on breaking other people down, in order to uphold their own perceived authority. The only true authority that any one person has is that of which God has commanded, which is to love as God loves. That love does not change because of whom one perceives one self to be or the place one holds in life. There is only one true authority, one true love. This, the believer knows, the believer understands, the believer lives and the believer is made free.
John 8:33-47… Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot accept my word. Whoever is from God hears the words of God.
Romans 13:1-14 …‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.
Those who love me, I will deliver;
I will protect those who know my name.
When they call to me, I will answer them;
I will be with them in trouble,
I will rescue them and honour them.
With long life I will satisfy them,
and show them my salvation.
