    I think he expects us to try to live it. We all fall short so he knows we will miss the mark occasionally.

    ^^^^ This.

    God and I have the occasional heated debate about this. I try.... but he made me a sarcastic devilish individual so I can't be responsible when I fail to live up to Him. :lol:

    I'd hate to think that He wasted His time and energy

    If you aim for perfection, chances are you'll land somewhere near excellence.

    The full sermon is in Matthew, you can find parts of it in other Gospels.

    And yes, we can be perfect, but only through the Grace of God.
