And, lest we forget, the golden rule. At least, I think this is the origin of one of them. There are golden rules out the wazoo, actually. Just about every religion has some expression of treating others the way you want to be treated. Now, some of these religions predate Christianity by eons--so I guess it showing up in the Bible just goes to emphasize that all time is now.

"Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. "

Matthew 7:12

(now, even tho it says men, it doesn't mean to leave out women. Women were not actually people yet during Bible times, so they didn't even count. They were chattel. Like cattle or real estate. And, according to the version of the Bible commissioned by King James, they pretty much had all of the responsibilities and none of the rights accorded to actual persons.)

All this is just my own opinion, of course. But, Matthew is an interesting book, and I was just looking at chapter 7.
