Do you FEAR GOD?

5:22 (NIV) "Should you not fear me?" declares the Lord. "Should
you not tremble in my presence?
· In Hebrew, yirah (Jon
1:16, Ps 90:11), yare (above, Mal 3:16) and pachad (Job
3:25a, Ps 119:120) mean reverent fear, terror, or dread, normally translated
simply fear. There are other words in Hebrew for mere respect, reverence, or
honor, such as kabad (Ex 20:12). In Greek fear/terror is phobo (Mat
28:4,1 Pet 2:17c), where reverence or honor is timao (1 Pet
· With this distinction in
both Hebrew and Greek, some still assert that "fear merely means
reverence." As if God through His Spirit could not select the right word
hundreds of times! Some would prefer to believe this than to understand that
God really ought to be feared.
· Why is it we will not
accept the fear of God? Why do we try to "explain away" the fear of
God in Scripture? What is it in our unconscious minds that creeps up when the
Spirit leads us into the revelation of the fear of God?

If not you need to repent and get it right before it's to late!!!

    No I don't
    I'm a Pagan and my gods have never given me any reason to fear them. They aren't that arrogant. That being said, I have never understood the concept of fearing your deity. You should love them, right? Love isn't borne of fear. Wanting people to fear you is for the insecure. I am much happier knowing one day I'll be taken into the arms of peace than constantly having to maintain all these asinine rules of behavior and conduct that allow a Christian into Heaven, thanks.

    Well thank you for your answer Jessica, but we can't follow some of the teachings of the bible and disregard the rest and expect to make it into the kingdom of God its either ALL or NOTHING there is simply no in-between!!!

    Christianity is not a religion but a relationship with Christ which is the living word of God!!!

    God bless you

    Why should I fear GOD? There may be occasion to fear a god, but The Quiet, it does not seek to affair in our lives. My ego is not so great that I would assume The Quiet concerns itself on a moment by moment basis regarding my activities. No doubt, were I to tread that path where I would interfere with its intentions and desired outcomes, my intentions would become secondary. So, no, those self-absorbed people who's world is no bigger than themselves (and that being the case, it explains their failure to comprehend anything), their fear is based on a projection of what they themselves would be like were they in charge. Heaven forbid God would be so trite and limited.

    Yes I do!
    To 'fear" God is not to be "afraid of" Him. It is to love Him and set our hearts to honor Him. In response to a comment here, "death" is not the end of life. It is the end of the physical body. The "soul" is eternal. The question each of us must answer personally, is where our soul will spend that eternity. It has been said, "All that troubles is but for a moment; all that pleases is but for a moment; only that which is eternal really matters."
  • JK 2011/08/02 00:21:23
    No I don't
    Fear is the path to evil. Why would a perfect God want you to fear HIM? If HE embodies all that is righteous and good, this doesn't make sense.
