8 Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. 9 The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
14 For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.
13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: "Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole."
Greatest I am
I'm kind of looking at qualifying for a job in the other place. I think if you are a good honest person, you may get a job guarding those in hell. Even Satan has to be able to trust his workers to do what he needs done.
Never put your faith into getting to a place where only a few chosen people will ever make it to.
It is lonely at the top.
You're making your argument up as you go.
You keep saying you are a Gnostic Christian....
Do you mean Agnostic Christian?
18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
10 For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.”

LittlebylittleI do not think so but I also think many people on this planet has an overrated sense of where they fit in. Some do not understand that a place that is heaven, became heaven because they are not there since if they where they and had any free will they would turn it into a hell dimension. Better to be on a lower level if you are causing suffering to innocent loving beings at a higher level. The loving ones have to be protected from the fallen ones.
In an indirect way, and symbolically, yes.
When you die, Satan will ask you; how was your ticket to heaven purchased? With innocent blood?
If all of the law and the prophets hung on Jesus' two commandments, that means even the written law hung on it. If the law is a curse, that also means that Jesus' two commandments are a curse.
The scripture he refers to does not say that the law is a curse, it says that those who do NOT follow the law are cursed.
Since loving others fulfills the law that means whoever does not love others is cursed, not that those who love others are cursed as well as Paul claims.
If everything in the book of the law is a curse as Paul says, loving others is also a curse which is what the law hangs on.
