The GOLDEN RULE is the CULMINATION of the ENTIRE SEMON ON THE MOUNT. As I said earlier, "THEREFORE" is the key word - it means - BECAUSE of everything that I’ve already said here on the mount - you MUST do this! Because of the BEATITUDES-THE BLESSED BE’S - because YOU are the SALT OF THE EARTH and the LIGHT OF THE WORLD - because of the prohibitions against HATRED, MURDER, ADULTERY, LUST, AND OATHS - because of the SACRED and BINDING rules about MARRIAGE - because of the commands to GO THE SECOND MILE, TURN THE OTHER CHEEK, doing your CHARITABLE deeds in private - because of the EXAMPLES to LIVE by on PRAYER, FASTING, GOOD WORKS, GENEROSITY, and SPIRITUAL priorities - because of the commands not to WORRY or JUDGE others - and finally because of the CHALLENGE to "ASK, and it will be given to you; SEEK, and you will find; KNOCK and it will be opened to you. - BECAUSE of ALL those things in the sermon - Jesus says THEREFORE - "whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the law and the prophets."
