Please refer to the series entitled "Dead to the Law: God's Laws Written on Our Hearts" for a complete explanation of what the word "perfect" means in the following verses.
"Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect."
Matthew 5:48, KJV
"Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you."
2 Corinthians 13:11, KJV
"And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God."
Ephesians 3:19, KJV
"But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him."
1 John 2:5, KJV
"No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. . . . Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
1 John 4:12, 17-18, KJV
