He has shown you, o man, what is good, and what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God?

There are many verses that would sum up how we should live, or how we should relate to God.
Some would chose the Great Commandment (Love the Lord .... and love your neighbour) and some might prefer John 3, 16.
I for one quite like Micah 6:8, which really puts it in a nutshell: [quote] He has shown you, o man, what is good, and what does the Lord requir ...[text shortened]... f the current threads would sort of lose their point... Messing around with peripherals at best!

No, the "reason" for all the peripherals is those "Christians" who think they know better than others always want to tell others how they should act, and love to stand over them with their "holier-than-thou" attitude and tell them smugly that they are just not doing it right and deserve to rot in hell.
Very nice verse and also conforms to what Christ and the Apostles said.
The reason for all the peripherals is that most Christians believe that nothing is required of anyone except to have faith, and living by the maxim you quoted is automatic once you are saved.
