is a healthy respect for an awesome Creator who has all Power at His dispose. That is how I understand Fear of the Lord. I kinda think if we lived by the words of the Bible there would be no rape, murder or infanticide.
The Lord Jesus Christ, or your X, explained to a lawyer:
Matthew 22:35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
(The Lawyer in Luke 10 asked who his neighbor was and Jesus told a story...the neighbor, or hero, in the story ended up being a Samaritan...an ethnic group of people that the Jews hated. You may know the story as The Good Samaritan.)
It seems to me that human kind has been unable to practice love. The kind of love that does for someone else what one would do for themselves. The kind of love that Ron Paul got booed at in a debate about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7v8qtZ3I5AM . That crowd sounds to me like another crowd that yelled “Crucify Him” when speaking about X…
The Bible says God is Love and that God Loves the World and about the beginning of Wisdom:
• Proverbs 9:10 KJV
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
It also says something else that is something fearful”
• Proverbs 1:7 KJV
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
I didn’t want to add that last verse because it sounds in your face, and I didn't like it, but I felt it would be unfair for me to leave it out. Stray, God loves you. He wants you to know Him. He has provided everything necessary.
I am only replying because I clicked on your title because I recognized it as Scripture. There are many different Lovers and Friends of Liberty. Hopefully we can all be Friends IN Liberty as I truly hope to be yours.
