I realize you were making a specific point with your comment so this is
probably slightly off topic. But your statement makes me wonder. Isn't
there adequate evidence from scripture that Jesus was God and that we are
called to worship Him? (perhaps this is what you meant by "every choice
should be guided by Jesus"). Of course how that plays out in the lives of
individuals is very different.
