      Fear is the basis for all religion, fear of the unknown, of the unexplained, which in turn requires a degree of ignorance such as that possessed by the mostly-anonymous, superstitious, scientifically-ignorant Bronze and Iron Age men who invented Yahweh and wrote the Bible. Jenni Mills in her book "Six Years with God" tells how Jones said in there was cyanide in the wine – 45 minutes to live – girl ran out of place – shot. 45 minutes later Jones said no cyanide with wine and the girl had only been shot with a blank, but he controlled them by fear.

    Hailed in Sacred Scripture as the “beginning of wisdom” (Ps ), the “fear of the Lord” is seldom mentioned and little understood today. A gift of the Spirit and a moral virtue or disposition, the “fear of the Lord” also frequently entails emotional experiences of differing kinds: compunction, dread, reverence, wonderment, and awe. Christianity “The Fear of the Lord” Wise King Solomon put it this way in explaining his reason for writing the book of Proverbs: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge” (Proverbs ). Why? Consider these words of the psalmist: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who.

    The Bible tell us not to fear God in 1 John but in other places it tells us to fear God. This seems like a contradiction. Your thoughts? Christianity is not a healthy social phenomenon. It is polytheistic, fear-based and manipulative. How can we say Christianity is true and Hinduism is .   I see this kind of quote often here at Answers: "Christianity is definitely a religion based on fear. Hell, and Satan are necessary elements the church uses to keep people in line." I personally know of no one who is in fear of hell who is a Christian. I don't know of anyone who is a Christian who became one through a fear of hell. Could it be that a whole lot of people here do not really have.

It is often said that fear of God has no place in the Christian’s life for, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and he who fears (for himself) is not perfected in love” (1 John ).

But there are many commandments to fear in the New Testament; for example, Romans Ed has been counseling for over twenty-six years and has written many books and articles on biblical counseling, including When People are Big and God is Small, Addictions: a Banquet in the Grave, Blame it on the Brain, Depression and his newest book, Running Scared: Fear, Worry and the God of Rest.

“Fear is born of Satan, and if we would only take Christianity and fear book to think a moment we would see that everything Satan says is founded upon a falsehood.” ~ A.B. Simpson.

Famous Ladies’ Quotes About Fear. I often hear people explain the fear of the Lord as a mere respect or reverence. But the Bible uses the word fear at least times in reference to God, so we make a mistake when we downplay it.

The book is good in covering the story plots, knock-out lines, and theatrical methods of fear-mongering Christianity over the past four decades.

To this kind of covetous fear, Jesus says, “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Lk ). The theology of fear is a symptom of manipulation used by religious cults.

Giving something so toxic a name and a category with which to define and understand can be helpful. One may then see Vatican II as an attempt to move the church beyond cult status to a church of hospitality and agape love that serves humanity rather than attempts to /5(42).

Jesus loves to free his people from their anxieties and fears. He exalts his power and superiority by working to take away what troubles us. The Root of Our Anxiety.

Anxiety stems from a lack of faith in our heavenly Father, as unbelief gets the upper hand in our hearts. Much anxiety, Jesus says, comes from little faith. People going through these deadly periods in the past have frequently looked to it as a sign of the end.

But it was not. While the death toll for COVID could potentially approach that of the Spanish Flu, there is no reason to suspect that it is heralding the end either. As a minister, I often quoted and frequently sang the chorus from 2 Timothy“God has not given us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, of love and a sound mind.”.

Beginning in the book of Genesis and continuing throughout the book of Revelation, God reminds us to “Fear not.” For example, Isaiah encourages us, “Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”.

by Matt Slick. Christianity is not based on fear. It is based on the person and work of Jesus Christ. The whole foundation of Christian theology rests on the person of Christ who, according to the Scriptures, is God in flesh (John14), who bore our sins in his body on the cross (1 Peter ), and who died and rose from the dead three days later (1 Corinthians ).
