I often hear or even read about people mentioning they are God fearing. I always cringe when I hear that term because it just doe not make any sense.
What’s funny is that those same people who say they’re God fearing, also love God. The part that does not make sense is how can you love and be in fear at the same time. Do you see where I’m going with this? Love and fear cannot be used in the same sentence.
An analogy I can use to illustrate my point is saying that you love your little puppy, but are also afraid of it. You either love your puppy or you fear it.
If you are God fearing, how can you ever be God loving? Fear is the opposite of love and can’t be in the same sentence or be of the same thought process if you’re talking about love.
In a previous post, I mentioned that there’s nothing but godliness. God, as people tend to believe, is not a person. There is no God as a person. Existence itself is full of the godliness qualities and that is nothing but love. There’s no fear associated with that all.
So, if everything is godliness and love, how and why are you afraid?
Do you notice that most religious figures, specially in the Western traditions, always talk about fear within religion? Wake up and stop following a religious life out of fear. If you are a godly person, remove fear from your vocabulary and life as it is not part of the loving existence that we’re experiencing.
