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.

    I know without faith it impossible to please God. We must put our motion in action by practice words, thoughts and direction of God .

    "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?

    JOHN 14:10 believest thou not that I am in THE FATHER and THE FATHER in ME the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself but THE FATHER that dwelleth in ME HE doeth the works
