The full verse reads "If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him." (John 14:23) It speaks of a personal Son and Father in terms of "we" and suggests a close personal relationship as the result of obedience to God's commandments as taught by His Son. Does it sway more, or less, to you?

What? The Gospel does not preach "New Age." This comment explains some things about your version of Christianity... and not in a good way. But, hey-- we all have freedom of choice, don't we?
Wow, Eric, I love your comment. The Bible does teach New Age, Savvy, to anyone with a soul advanced enough to understand it, otherwise it is just a dogma. The Bible is like an onion, to be peeled away in layers according to one's spiritual level.
MizB: "Namaste?" I bow to the God in you? Which One? There are NOT 1K ways to GOD for HE is JEALOUS.MAKE SURE you "bow to THE GOD" which is ONLY the doctrine of The Gospel of Christ! Man Made RELIGIONS or TWISTED "Christianity" OUT (2Kgs17:29-41)!
"Buene Suerte=Good LUCK?" LUCK is NOT what's needed w/GOD! "ANY PATH" is NOT accepted by MY "JEALOUS" GOD (Exd 20:3)! U NEED to be "hung up" on THE NAME (Phil 2:10)! JESUS' Role TODAY is ONE SPIRIT'S "GLORY" feeling "flesh's" as HE gathers CHURCH!
M more of your foolish gobblety gook
Celafoe, you hate. So sad and so un Christian. Erase but your hatred will shine through. You deny Christ as love -- You think Christ wrathful, you are a lost sheep. Your words sound a gong of an ancient world that Christ came and destroyed.
Eric, Celafoe is RIGHT! U can't worship ANYTHING & "enter!" Can't u hear what WORD SAYS? GOD is JEALOUS as a husband (Eph5:31-32)! Would u want ur wife committing "adultery?"ALL need to realize there aren't 1K diff ways to GOD or 1K adulteries OK
Goodness, Norine, That's deep stuff. You go, girl!
Not *me* MizB but the HOLY SPIRIT'S "revelation!" 2Cor3:5 "Not that we are sufficient to think ANYTHING of ourselves; but our sufficiency is OF GOD!"
Sweet Norine, I was talking about your interpretation was not standard dogma, but that YOU understood a more advanced meaning. And I agree that your understanding is God-given.
I took it to mean that & is why I said not *me* but OF GOD!
