Jesus said that he calls us friends because he has made the Father known to us.  As we are guided by Christ in our conscience, we do so with the awareness that we are part of God’s plan to spread Love and woo people into knowing the truth that Love is the unified field. 

Separation is sin.  Sin is generated by any action that causes separation and disturbs the unified field of Love.

Okay, I don't remember anything specific that said that; but it's consistent with a great many things I do remember him saying; and certainly that's been my experience. I don't look/listen/wait inside and find pictures of Jesus, but interactions with God -- while the nature of God as I've gradually become acquainted is entirely in tune with what I believe was Jesus' message.

And that is a loving nature, but one embodying other virtues as well. God, so far as I see what God accomplishes in the world, seems to be continually disrupting all the false unities people mistakenly put their faith in... and so I'd have to say that what we call 'separation' is very often the will of God.

But then many separations people make in their minds are probably unnecessary, even (as you say) 'sinful'.

What about Christians who seem to be meeting Jesus as a sort of guru... a projection of God, an image that they seemingly mistake for Himself? Is the separation that we, and people knowing God in that way, see between ourselves -- the reflection of a real disunity, the effect of different stages in the development of people's connection with God -- or just a case of different modes for knowing God?
