Order And Love

I had a conversation with an old retired minister. He said to me simply: "Once you have order in the Church, you have love." That is, love in the Church results from order. Some would have it the other way round: order in the Church results from love. I go with the old minister. So does Congregationalism. So did Christ. When He spoke of order and love at the same time, apparently He mostly put order first. But love is the goal.
