Obviously you can't hear because that is what it says. No need to go change it.

Jesus knew what he spoke and those who speak what He spoke have understanding.

Whoever speaks on his own seeks his own glory but He who seeks the glory of the one who sent him is truthful and there is no unrighteousness in him.

You need to do more than hear it or speak it.
Otherwise, it's not different than being a parrot.

I mean that someone would say that ...even come up with that.
Oh, wait...I know psychology a bit...'you see what is in yourself'...a projection onto others.
Bingo.

An example.. Many see the Creator Father God as pure unconditional Love...someone else sees that also,
but
with a twist...that He is a punishing, torturing, Father that sends any bratty children to an
eternal fiery lake.

Then, turns it on someone else, that WE have the phoney-fake love.
Some of us are not only College Grads , but Post Grads, PhDs even...
I think some are messin' with the wrong people...we have brains...and know
love.

You can not say it clearer!
Oh, I'm repeating myself.

The son can do nothing on his own. He can only do what He sees the Father doing, whatever the Father does the Son does likewise for the Father loves the Son and whatever he does he shows him.

The Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to speak and since I know His commandment is Eternal life what I say is spoken just as He instructed me.

I can do nothing on my own I only way what the Lord has taught me for the one who sent me is with me He has not deserted me because I always do what pleases Him.
M
Those words may sound familiar. They are from the guy you claim to follow. But those who follow were sent as He was sent with the same words as Him. So if you aren't a Jesus "parrot" you are not his sheep.

I am the light of the world. No one who follows me shall ever walk in darkness because they shall possess the light of life.

I came into the world as it's light to keep anyone who believes in me from remaining in the dark.

Anyone who hears my word and does not keep it I am not the one to condemn him for I did not come to condemn the world but to save it. Anyone who rejects me and DOES NOT ACCEPT MY WORD he already has his judge, NAMELY, the words I've spoken that's what will condemn him on the last day.

But as for counterfeit teachers, He said that we would know them by their fruit. So, since much of the fruit on C-D is rotten then the tree was not planted by Yeshua. Be ye separate and come out from among them.

15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

You are not in a position to judge others, until you have gotten-rid of that rotten-fruit. Some people are insecure and have a low self-esteem. Try to encourage them without condemning, that's if you want to help others. Telling yourself and others that you are dirt-bags isn't going to cut it!
