in response to reader comment: Ancient scriptures

John 9:35-41) Jesus heard that they had cast him out: and when he had found him, he said to him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I may believe on him? And Jesus said to him, thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshiped him. And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they who see not, may see; and that they who see, may be made blind. And [some] of the Pharisees who were with him heard these words, and said to him, Are we blind also? Jesus said to them, If ye were blind, ye would have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

If we declare we are to honor the words and deeds of Jesus Christ, do we not betray a trust in Him if we say that the words attributed to Him do not provide a true witness of Who He is? If, countering the ancient lies of Pharisaic unbelief, He (Jesus Christ) says "if you love me, keep my commandments;" how can we say we love Him and not honor His words?
