So . . . what is the spiritual foundation . . . of the teachings of Jesus.

In other words . . . what is the driving force of the teachings of Jesus.

To get to the answer . . . we must go though a door, or passage way.

We have to breakout of our culture, just like any baby bird pecks its' way out of the egg.

A lawyer said "Master what is the most important commandment in the law?" Jesus answered "Love the Lord God with all thy heart ,soul, and mind. And the second is likewise love thy neighbor as you would love yourself . On these two commandments is the foundation of all the law and prophets."

The above commandments had been given by Moses to mankind over 1490 years prior. And they still had not escaped from the chains of their culture.

So. . . what happens to a person that falls in love with God?

When we fall in love with God, we will begin to learn directly from God.

This is why Jesus said "Do not be called Rabbi or teacher, for there is only one Master, Christ and we are all brothers.

If any of the teachings of Jesus are confusing to us. We should seek God for the answer and not another source.

God is the best teacher.

God is the only teacher.

When we look to another source for information, we hinder our relationship with the Creator of the Universe.
