For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. 1 John 5:3
“If you love Me, keep My commandments. John 14:15
If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. John 15:10
Tell us which of God's Commands you obey. All of the Sermon on the Mount/Plain? Maybe just in theory or intent, "the best you can?"
The incredibly vetbose five part presentation by this man is typical of all Theologians who have no legitimate work with which to support themselves.What would be your response to the somewhat provocative question: Do You Love God With All Your Heart? My own response came through asking myself some correlated questions. These helped me delve into this very fundamental Christian teaching.
What is your response to this very important question? How does it help you in your Christian walk reflect on it?

Prov. 10:19 "In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin, but he that refraineth his lips is wise." Jesus only spoke concisely and directly unto any given matter.
Exodus 20:8, “Remember the Sabbath day to set it apart as holy." NET, v2.1 ("Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy." KJV; "Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy." NRSV; " “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy." ESV) It doesn't say to "honor the Sabbath". Here is the accompanying NET footnote for "Remember": The text uses the infinitive absolute זָכוֹר (zakhor) for the commandment for the Sabbath day, which is the sign of the Sinaitic Covenant. The infinitive absolute functions in place of the emphatic imperative here (see GKC 346 §113.bb); the absolute stresses the basic verbal idea of the root—remembering. The verb includes the mental activity of recalling and pondering as well as the consequent actions for such remembering.
I recommend not to trust even one theologian , for if they are wrong we run the risk of uniting ( with them ) in error. The best theologian ( well there are two really) are Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit . Words of the Lord are very simple and direct . No need to run anywhere else in Bible to understand what He was speaking. The Holy Spirit is the best theologian in my opinion . He helps us connect the dots. All my opinion .Who do you recommend?
