Jesus Christ emphasized the golden rule of treating others as you want to be treated, a concept central to Christianity. His teachings focus on selflessness and love for others, contrasting with worldly principles of self-exaltation. Embracing His teachings can lead to salvation and understanding of truth. Will you obey Him on His terms?

  • Scriptures: Matthew 7:12; Matthew 22:37-40



David Hill: Jesus said, “Whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them. For this is the Law and the Prophets” (Matthew 7:12). The golden rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Many have observed this to be the defining difference in Christianity and all other religions. Jesus Christ taught a selfless, humble doctrine in contrast with world religions teaching earthly supremacy, exalting of oneself, and the advancing of interests in the world. In fact, the Lord said, second to loving God with all your heart is “love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22: 37-40). Rather than dominance over your neighbor, Jesus said, “Love them as you love yourself.” No other leader ever taught such high and noble principles, and His teachings turned the world upside down 2000 years ago.
