Can this possibly describe how Christ is one with the Father?
Christ loves the father as he loves HIMSELF.
The Father loves Christ as he loves HIMSELF.
Could Christ love the Father in any greater way?
If we are created in the image of God; would it make sense if the words of the greatest commandments had a greatest meaning for the Father and Christ also?
The greatest commandments could be compared to a hook to HANG your coat on; without the hook the coat falls on the floor.
When Christianity fails to HANG on the greatest commandments, Christianity falls, and we have schisms.
Christ said all the law and the prophets HANG on the greatest commandments.
What else is in the Bible apart from an explanation of the law and the prophets of God?
Again if the greatest commandments were written for God.
God loves himself and all that he does.
God loves all his children as he loves himself.
Could all the laws and the prophets of creation HANG on these two commandments.
When you ask the question; why did Christ say they are the greatest commandment, can it be because God can do nothing greater and man can do nothing greater.
If we search for what is greatest for God; then we can search in the same way for what is greatest for man.
If we are to talk seriously about Christian Unity; would it make sense to put the greatest into place first; the greatest
represents the spirit of the law.
If you were to search for a greatest way for man to use the greatest commandments, you could put the Bible away for a while and ask the following questions to search for the spirit of the law.
1 HOW CAN WE ALL LOVE GOD THE CREATOR ABOVE ALL ELSE, UNCONDITIONALY?
2 HOW CAN WE LOVE PEOPLE OF OTHER FAITHS AS WE LOVE OURSELVES UNCONDITIONALY?
3 HOW CAN WE LOVE PEOPLE WHO ARE DIFFERENT TO US AS WE LOVE OURSELVES UNCONDITIONALLY?
4 HOW CAN WE LOVE ALL OUR NEIGHBOURS AS WE LOVE OURSELVES, UNCONDITIONALY?
I believe in one God the creator of all that is seen and unseen, and when I walk through town I see a part of God’s creation.
I see people who could be atheist, Catholic, Muslim, Anglican; Hindu, and all manor of people all created by the same God.
