as used in the Bible. From Wikipedia:
"There is another fear in the Bible that has a different meaning. It says to fear God. This is not a fear as in being afraid of God. Fear is used to express a Filial or a slavish passion. In good men, the fear of God is holy awe or reverence of God and his laws."
Jesus also said: "All that I do, ye may do also, and even more"
"I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no one comes to the Father except through Me" - Jesus.
Many believe this was a practical statement of living life as Jesus did. He lived in a state of Unconditional Love, which many agree is the way of the Lord. I am not a practicing catholic anymore but I do Live in Unconditional Love as honestly as I can. And by doing so I have experienced things that I could only describe as divinely inspired. And I have no need for Religious Institutions to do it either.
If it makes no sense to you then please educate yourself rather than throwing your cognitive dissonance on others? I make no claims. These ARE the claims of physicists, which last time I checked, were scientists and nothing pseudo about them.
No Coherent Philosophy Behind It? Really? Christianity? Buddhism? Judaism? These are ALL philosophies based on these Universal Principles. Perhaps you fail to see these teachings as the metaphors they're meant to be? I don't know, but your sudden anger and FEAR of my words has a source somewhere worth exploring.
