Discussion for John 14

    John 14:15 is not symbolic, it's clear and means just what it says. If you love me God keep my commandments. The first four commandments addresses our love for God. The next six spells out how we should relate to our fellow man. That's what it means by two great commandments love the Lord your God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself.

    JOHN 14:21 he that hath MY commandments and keepeth them --- HE IT IS THAT LOVETH ME --- and he that loveth me shall be loved of MY FATHER and I will love him and will manifest myself to him --14:23-- JESUS answered and said unto him if a man love ME he will keep MY words an MY FATHER will love him and we will come unto him and make our abode with him

    "If ye love me, keep my commandments." If you always tell your wife, Oh, I love you, I love you; but won't go to work or help with the chores; how is that love? Aren't you supposed to be under promise before God to love one another and be one? Why do you not keep the Lord's commandments? Laziness? Indifference? Other loves more important? Fear of the ridicule and looks of men? No heart agreement?
