    And not "Love the God of Abraham?"

    I have my opinions, but, I'd love to hear yours.

    I think you're reading far too much into it. Jesus clearly supported belief in the God of Abraham.

    Word. Theres obviously a reading/comprehension issue here. Not an actual issue.

    When asked about the greatest commandment. lol @ reading comprehension issue.

    @Memento

    I agree. And he was very specific about that on most occasions. I agree that it was implied, but the ambiguity is curious.

    Actually, it says "The Lord, your God," my bad. I was thinking about religious tolerance and trying to remember the verse =/

    Well knowing what the actual commandment is will help you understand whats meant when referencing it.

    The first commandment says that, “I am the LORD your GOD, thou shall not have any other GODS before me.”

    Thats pretty clear

    I understand what the commandment means, I simply forgot two words. I'm not sure this air of condescension will be very successful in arguments, though. It seems pretty clear to me that I stated my ideas, then checked my Scripture, realized my error, and apologized; that certainly implies a certain level of understanding of the commandment. Add that to the fact that I'm trying to have an intelligent discussion, I really don't understand the condescension.
