Jesus is God
I absolutely believe that Jesus is God.
"If you are my friends you will do what I command"
"This is my command, that you love one another".
The 2 greatest commands. Love the Lord your God with all your heart soul and mind, and the second is like it, love your neighbor as yourself.
Seems to me that how 2 people love each other is governed by this simple rule.
I wouldn't ask or accept being asked to do anything that makes my relationship with Jesus difficult.
Not that there aren't absolutes but the application of the absolute command to love each other is subjective to the 2 people in the relationship.
The Bible is men's words about their relationship with God.
Jesus is the Word of God to everyone who will listen.
Problem is the words of men, mine included often times interfere with a person's ability to listen to Jesus clearly.
