Does God truly want you to fear Him?


I hear all of the time. "He/she is a God fearing soul.", but we should love thy neighbor, and praise God. Do you think that God really wants you to fear Him?

    He does love all of His children, so they why do some people prevent their children from knowing Him?

    I do like "awe", "respect", "love", "obedience", "subservience"!

    We do need to be reminded He's not an equal but much greater than thou!

    Very true that we fear Him taking away things and people that He has given us.

    You're right, we should fear being separated from God.

    But, if He forgives us for all of our sins if we believe, what should we fear?

    You're right that we need to obey and want to do His will. Often we think we know what's best for us, but we don't.

    I agree, but one can only come to God with complete and utter humility. Ego is a cog in the machine of this world and the source of evil. Humility is the antidote to ego.
