    What does it mean to fear God? Seems stupid to fear something that is pure love. Isn't God on our side?

    I say, don't fear god... fear man.

    Maybe, if "God" needs you to do something important, to be humble, to listen to "Him", you may feel a little shaky on it until you get it right. "Running hot and cold" is another term for it...

    I see absolutely no point in pointing out the hypocrisy of theistic mythology. If people are gullable or unconcerned enough not to notice the obvious inconsistencies therein, then I say fuck em.

    I was just asking what it meant. I never understood it. I can see fearing a Greek god, those guys were assholes. Maybe even the Jewish God. But if the Christian God is love, why fear that? I don't get it.

    well, they do sometimes, but then other times they say jesus sortof outdated the whole OT. The basic premise of Christianity is that their god is a god of love. Such is my understanding.

    To fear God, actually means to respect God. The translations from Hebrew to English and other languages has given unbelievers what they believe to be ammunition against the faithful. But it is really worthless word games. The condition of the word today begs for Gods Fatherly loving ways. The Commandments are commandments out of love from our spiritual Father.

    Yeah but you respect God because of the wrath he has the ability to bring upon you which is just a circle. Fear God else you burn in Hell.

    Yeah, like God always watching everyone masturbate. God's a voyeur, thats why he made it illegal, so more people would do it, righT? sick bastard

    You just aren't getting it. RESPECT, not fear. IT IS FOR OUR OWN GOOD. THE HELL THAT WE HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT, IS THE ONE WE MAKE OURSELVES.

    Dan is right about 'fear God'. it's not real fear but respect and standing in awe before God.

    At some point in one of the 4 gospels, Jesus tells people to fear God. Then some sentences slater, He says smth like: do not fear for God has counted every hair on your head. So this fearing of God is not being afraid, for He knows us better then ourselves and we find comfort in His fatherheart. Fearing God cannot mean being afraid of Him, because Jesus said not to be afraid of God because He knows us. The fearing is indeed respect, not being frightened.

    Nope. God is giving you a handjob when "you" masturbate. God controls all, takes a little bit of time to teach a soul what this means.

    You ever had a hurricane up the ass?

    God's a leading cause of death, you can't blame people for being a little scared. [​IMG]
