LOVE IS THE LAW!
That phrase, "My way or the highway" is usually thrown out as a challenge by some one or group wishing to establish dominance. Some disciples from Judea tried to pull that in Antioch but were stopped by Paul and Barnabas with the support of the Jerusalem church. Converts to the way of Christ did not need to be circumcised or be held to all the scriptures of the Jewish law. But living as they did with practicing Jews, they were asked not to do those things that would be especially abhorrent to their neighbors. The primary law to be obeyed by those who followed Christ was the law of Love. Take that to heart.
