Those tough commandments
Did Jesus mean what he said?
“So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.”John 13:14 NRSV
Here are some examples of Jesus’ commands: Love your enemies Matthew 5:43-45; Pray privately Matthew 6:5-7; Wash others’ feet John 13:14. Do not judge Matthew 7:1-2. Again, if you Google how many commands Jesus spoke, it will vary between Christian denominations from 3 to 1050. I’m still uncertain as to whether to follow all of these commands or just a few. It’s unclear and there’s no formula for entering that narrow gate Matthew 7:13-14. I guess the Apostle Paul didn’t have a list so he concluded that we just needed to “believe.”
