The bible doesn't say Jesus had a power to command, only to recommend, which leaves each one of us with an individual freedom of choice. Maybe it's just that there are too many of us making too many bad choices for the good of the whole. He took a bite out of his apple. Too many people and none of us wanting or able to hear the harmony.
