Discussion for John 14:15

  • The devil is a liar, He is cunning. God 's commands are the Ten commandments and we MUST obey them and that 's God 's direction to His children.
  • Susan Liang for verse 15
    Can one be saved by faith yet disobey the 5th commandment which teaches love of one 's neighbors by teaching first the5th commandment, still be saved? I believe so. I also believe generally speaking that Jesus ' s last words just before he said "It is finished " -- to John, "Behold, your mother " to His mother, "Behold, your son " is the fruit He wants to see from believers fruit of the first commandment of the two that sum up the ten is obedience to His commandments . So when I hear in bible study, a believer who wants to accept the call of God to leave on mission, leaving his 75 year old father behind for 3 years-- I say this believer may be saved, but he is "doing corban " - replacing care of one 's elderly parents - with an ostensible call to mission.
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 15
    Obedience is the expression of true love. When you get married, you make a covenant with your spouse based on love. If you fail to keep that covenant, then you show that you did not love your spouse. Jesus is the Groom, and the Church is the bride. Jesus has made His covenant with the Church based on love by shedding His blood on the cross for our sins. He said a new commandment I give unto you, that you love one another as I have loved you. The commandments of God is completed by loving God with all thy heart, soul, mind, and strength. The second is to love thy neighbor as thyself. When we love others, we are keeping His commandments.
