Can someone explain why a Christian should fear God?
I hear all the time that it is good to fear God, but I have never quite understood. To me He is great, but I can't say I've ever feared Him. Or if I have, it has been only while I sinned.

How can it ever be healthy to fear God?

Thanks.

being human, you are evil, it's a good idea to fear the only one that is good. and the beginning of wisdom starts with fear of God. does that help any?

Uhm, no.

The idea of fear, that of a punishing god was the talk of the Pharisees and the priest class, which used it to enforce their system and views with them at the top.... Jesus vehemently opposed such views and tried to show people that the "Father" was all about unconditional Love, and that it was people's own thoughts and deeds that brought on their own suffering and kept themselves out of the kingdom.. Even today the traditions and views that Jesus opposed is going on strong...

Re: Can someone explain why a Christian should fear God?
That seems oxymoronic for a Christ loving person to fear that which they claim to love the most. Maybe their love isn't as unconditional as they think it is.hf

Re: Can someone explain why a Christian should fear God?
people who fear themselves will fear god no matter what

christians worship a false idol

a man who never existed called "jesus"

his life story was stolen from the real lives of john and mary (native birth names ioannis and iasthai)

christians when presented with truth about the true nature of existence will scream "demons"

says it all really

truth is john was beheaded and mary was crucified in the flesh

the spiritual meaning of crucifixion is to be crucified by the elements as an all encompassing alchemist. any human on earth can do this, not many do but.......

Everyone here is a moron...


I say Christians are just as bad sadly. As I am one.
They dress nicely and go to church as if nothing is going on around them.. and just pray.

They don't do anything Monday to Saturday as they are absolved of sin just to do an say nothing as they see sin and corruption all around them.

They will all have much to answer for when they reach the gates.

Re: Can someone explain why a Christian should fear God?
It does say that the fear of God s the beginning of wisdom. But note that it's only the BEGINNING of wisdom. And being human doesn't make you evil, you're divine ... and that's a tremendous honor and responsibility. There is no reason anyone should fear God, God created you and you are part of Him. We are Sons of God ... Christ in you the hope of glory.

Re: Can someone explain why a Christian should fear God?
Because His word says we should(and it is respect but also more, if you fear God then you wont go against Him or His ways and Word), and not just extensively in proverbs but also Revelations ch 15 for example. it is not to be confused with the fear of man, or fear in general, as these things crush and quench true love, and His Word says His True love casts out all fear amongst other things(1 John 4v 18).
You need to read His Word regularly in communion with Him(YHVH/YAHshua/Jesus/Holy spirit/Father)so others cant deceive you or confuse you, He promises if You do the Holy Spirit will lead you into all Truth. Seek Him earnestly and you will find Him, amen

Jesus had quite a hard time to get people to let go, cast aside, their traditional believe systems... Even among his disciples. He did what he could, but being up against such strong belief systems, he was considered a heretic, trouble maker, against the strongly believed belief system espoused by the powerful religious class and their mighty temple on Jerusalem. Has the Hebrews changed their views even after all this time? Look at how that religion vies Christ even today... To even if he is remotely considered their messiah even. When Christ walked the earth he only had a minority following, and of those were people that were considered the lowest of the lows by their peers that came to listen, in a mass that got to witness what he could do. Yet the vast majority that did not see for themselves, sided with the priest class (eho could not do what he could do even) and their views of 'a trouble maker blaspheming against their holy traditions, a "how dares he!!!". What happened in Jerusalem, their holy capital, and the mass throngs of people that screamed for his unishment and death exemplifies this...

Wait what? Jesus had at least 70 followers. What about the sermon of the mount? What about that time where he was speaking and had to get on a boat to avoid the huge crowd? What about him being hailed king and being brought on a colt thru Jerusalem (I believe)? So I disagree with that notion that he didnt have a large following or at least a lot of people hearing him and taking him serious.

The reason the hebrews rejected him THEN and NOW is because he doesnt fulfill the qualifications of the messiah as presented by their prophets. So why would they change their views about Jesus?

Was the priestly class right about everything? Probably not. Because they added onto what was commanded. As they do today with the Talmud with the Oral Torah among other things. That doesnt mean they were supposed to follow Jesus though. And if you're the same person I responded to, why did Jesus quote their (the Hebrews) prophets? The same prophets that said to fear and revere the God of Israel?

Re: Can someone explain why a Christian should fear God?
Romans 11:22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

You can both love and fear someone. For example, especially a child may love a parent, but also be fearful of this parent, since he knows, if he does wrong, he'll be punished.

Now the word punishment is still an understatement, when we're talking about God.

The punishment isn't temporary, but may be eternal, and highly highly severe beyond belief, as Jesus stated:

Mathew 25:46 "Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."

Re: Can someone explain why a Christian should fear God?
When I was young I saw an angel (or fravashi, the Zoroastrian word) and the feeling I had was awe mixed with fear. I was playing around with levitating and I got the impression I was being reprimanded in a way. It was not a cutey little cherub and it was HUGE in the scope of time, space and such. It gave me the sense that I was so so small (well I was 4 years old so I was small...but..you know) however, my actions were not a small thing, if that makes sense. I am religious but am mainly into the first monotheistic religion where God is not like man, it (or he/she)is something we cannot comprehend, I do believe in a Supreme Divine being as creator however and I understand why we should feel fear/awe/etc in the face of our creator.

Re: Can someone explain why a Christian should fear God?
...


Jesus had quite a hard time to get people to let go, cast aside, their traditional believe systems... Even among his disciples. He did what he could, but being up against such strong belief systems, he was considered a heretic, trouble maker, against the strongly believed belief system espoused by the powerful religious class and their mighty temple on Jerusalem. Has the Hebrews changed their views even after all this time? Look at how that religion vies Christ even today... To even if he is remotely considered their messiah even. When Christ walked the earth he only had a minority following, and of those were people that were considered the lowest of the lows by their peers that came to listen, in a mass that got to witness what he could do. Yet the vast majority that did not see for themselves, sided with the priest class (eho could not do what he could do even) and their views of 'a trouble maker blaspheming against their holy traditions, a "how dares he!!!". What happened in Jerusalem, their holy capital, and the mass throngs of people that screamed for his unishment and death exemplifies this...

Sorry for the double quoting and typos as well. Responding and typing from these little phones seems to increase such occurrences..

Nah son, again, don't lie to me, seriously, there will be serious consequences for lying to me. I know all, really, don't doubt that for a second. I guarantee you are not vacationing and posting on GLP during your vacation, just admit it son. No shame really. And seriously, who really would be vacationing in a shit ass "country" like Taiwan. Give it bro already, I grow weary of this shit, and you really dont want to tick me off.
