Is it wrong if I love my mom more than God? Because yes God put me on earth but my mom brought me into the world.

I'm a Christian, don't get me wrong. But I love my family more then anything else, including God.

I think that that's ok. As long as you love your God, that's good, but mothers go through a lot to bring us into the world, so it's important that you love yours, too.

If you follow and believe in the Bible, its wrong. You can read several scriptures that state GOD is first in your life and all else including family is second. Of course its your choice on determining who to put first, GOD or Family.

Jesus says in Matthew 19:29 and Mark 10:21:
And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields, for my name’s sake, will receive a hundredfold, and will inherit eternal life.

Luke 14:26 even says you have to hate your mother:
“Whoever comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and even life itself, cannot be my disciple.

So I suppose you can make your own conclusions from the bible, if you want to be a "True Christian"

I always wondered how that squared with "love thy neighbour".

An atheist who quotes the bible is a little bit like an English teacher reviewing a mechanical engineer's handbook.

You just don't really have enough background to understand how to use what's in the book---and memorizing formulas is no substitute for understanding what those formulas mean and how they are to applied.

Of course, if you were only tinkering in your basement or garage, I'd simply leave you alone.

But since you put yourself forward as an architect for the tallest building in the world, it's appropriate that I question your conclusions.

And how does an atheist evaluate the "Christian-ness" of a fellow limited human being with the same potential human faults as an atheist?

Put it in perspective.

Can you realistically ask a mother if she loves God more than her baby?---obviously God wants her to take care of (love?) the baby first and foremost. (I've never seen an angel change a diaper.)

And it's not about the "feelings" that we typically associate with "romantic" love.

I think it's more about taking a certain "stand" in a specific situation when necessary and the readiness to take that stand.

(And your profile mentions ocd---scrupulosity is a form of ocd.)

Jesus showed who should come first by saying: “He that has greater affection for father or mother than for me is not worthy of me; and he that has greater affection for son or daughter than for me is not worthy of me.” (Matthew 10:34-37) We put Jehovah God first by following the teachings of his Son, Jesus Christ, who is “the exact representation of [God’s] very being.” (Hebrews 1:3; John 14:9)

As Creator and Life-Giver, Jehovah deserves complete devotion from all his servants. (Revelation 4:11) “I bend my knees to the Father,” the apostle Paul wrote, “to whom every family in heaven and on earth owes its name.” (Ephesians 3:14, 15) Jehovah created the family arrangement in such a marvelous way that family members have natural affection for one another. (1 Kings 3:25, 26; 1 Thessalonians 2:7) Therefore, God should come first in a family.
