Treating others the way you want to be treated is the nitty-gritty of the Bible’s Golden Rule, and then some. Indeed, when you do to others what you want them to do to you (show love, mercy, respect, and dignity), the golden rule becomes the exemplification of the Holy Spirit’s divine revelation concerning the Gospel of Christ—concerning the One who not only shows us how to fulfill the teachings found in the Law and the books of the Prophets, but also gives us the power and authority to accomplish them.

Jesus says: “For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14, KJV). This verse is the moral of the Wedding Banquet Parable, as revealed through the King’s (God’s) repeated invitations. Moreover, the moral of the Wedding Banquet Parable answers the questions: Called for what? Chosen for what?
What we must never forget is that demonic spirits can influence believers as well as unbelievers! This truth is why the apostles Paul and John warn believers to be careful about which spirit(s) they are allowing to influence them. If the Holy Spirit is not influencing and leading them, then it is Satan’s demonic spirits who are influencing and leading them.
