They, many of them, have been carefully trained to ignore the bits they do not like. They are taught phrases like "that is your interpretation" or "each many interprets it differently" even though no interpretation is involved in "if you love me you will keep my teaching and the father will love you." The idea is to avoid making the flesh/body obey anything unpleasant.

It is so astounding that I have become convinced that there is a spiritual blindness that they willingly embraced. It is otherwise unable to be explained by a rational person. The enemy has many ways of deceiving men and bleeting like sheep is a really good one.

Disobedience proves unbelief (Heb 3), and unbelief proves NO eternal life!
"He has shown you, O man, what is good and what the Lord requires of you. But to do justly..and to love mercy...and to walk humbly with your God."
