Fear of God?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello friends,

 

I was wondering if some of you here can explain to me why, oh why, should a person have a fear from God?

 

As much as I know, only Christians and Muslims preach that, and maybe perhaps Jews?

 

They say God is benevolent, they say God is love, etc.

 

Why the need for fear then?

 

Fear is a very negative emotion/energy, and only evil beings demand fear?

 

Please, enlighten me. Thanks..

Just my two cents worth........

 

I agree that it seems like a paradox. So what meaning can I derive from this?

 

To me it's a "thorn to remove a thorn"........

 

Human behaviour at the lowest level, is driven by fear. Having this knowledge, the ancients have leveraged fear for a force for good. Fear God so that you change your behaviour from "bad" to "good". This will be one thorn removed. Then the hope is that once you have learned to do good or be a good human, you may evolve further and no longer require fear as a motivator, but the love you have found from doing good as the motivator.

Thanks brother, that makes a lot of sense. You made it seem less absurd 😁

It is only positive with God. Fear of any of the creatures is a form of paganism. The reason is because God is control of everything, and knowing that we did mistakes, we don't know if we will be forgiven or not. We don't know if God will bring us disaster or not. The fear of God is actually the fear of consequences of our own sin. 


Also, people know that we attract what we fear. Strong emotions mixed with thought are a recipe for the creation. Like "the Secret", and books like "Think Yourself Rich", that deal that our mental disposition has effects on our 'destiny'. Few people will deny that optimism will attract better outcomes than pessimism. So regardless what we do, we must fear. But we can program ourselves to channel it the only way that it goes beyond the actual space-time continuum, and it goes in a direction which is the only one that literally matters. The Creator. 

 

There are many benefits of the fear of God, including that one has less stress trying to avoid disaster, while guiding ones fear emotions to God, it automatically entails that one delivers a hope and delegates ones safety to God. So one has time to think of better things, as God will take care of it.

 

From my experimentation since I was a kid, it always works. Prayers always work, to the One God who created us all, hears us all, and controls all. Without Whom there is no power and change. Nothing can happen without Him, so whatever can go wrong, can only go wrong if He OKs it. This reality in the mind of every monotheist is the scary part. The thought of going to hell forever is scary. The thought of the suffering of the grave is scary. The thought that we might be hit back in this life for all or any of the wrong we did to ourselves and others, is scary. The thought that one could lose what we have, including our intelligence and honor, is scary. For me, what matters is my rank of love from God among the creatures, which is the source of my honor.

Thank you brother. You have explained this to me perfectly.

 

I can't say that I agree with the idea of fear od God, I find it crazy and absurd, but your explanation is spot on and now I understand why many people do fear God.

 

Kind regards..

Oh yes, for sure.

 

Fear binds us, and lowers our vibration and energy.

 

I guess it's part of a plan, as religions are one of the most powerful forms of control.

 

Thanks..
