Why You Should Fear God

I hope this title doesn't catch you off guard. I remember the first time I heard the above phrase "Fear God" that I was unsure of its meaning. It would help to know that to fear God is actually a good thing as long as you are His Son or His daughter. Why fear God? Because He is all powerful and is able to control everything that surrounds my existence. Because He is God and I'm not!

In Psalms 25:12-13 the writer gives several benefits to fearing God, they are as follows:
  • God will instruct you as you follow His path
  • God will cause you to spend your days in prosperity
  • God will cause your descendants to inherit the land (they will be the winners)
You know when you look at the above mentioned list, fearing God sounds like the best thing you and I can do.

    Sexuality introduces Death to Being; and indeed Life simultaneously. This is the profound Myth of the Eden. The work of the Serpent. Bringing us out of "blessed" Standstill. So, in contrast to the mindless pietism of vulgar Christianity, my personal "Christo-Satanism" should be given serious thought by the Enlightened Few, the Pneumatics, the 1% Outlaws. The Light Bringer must be rehabilitated, beacause if not, the All of it simply doesn't make sense: true Catholicism is necessarily Meta Catholicism.
