Is fearing in any way the same as respect?


When someone respects another it seems to be of positive moral values but when someone fears another it feels like they have something to lose which makes fearing more of a negative moral value. I'm not sure I am making sense but do you see fear and respect to be the same?

    I thought fear was close to hate with some emotion of terror, when I googled fear it becomes what people want it to be, it says to god fear is respect, and awe but I just beg to differ in all sense of the definition when I searched it.

    Thanks for the answer, I was with some friends and they're pretty religious and I was wondering why is God usually in the same sentence with fear. They explain something like we have to fear God.. I don't get it.

    I just fine respect and fear on the opposite end but it's how some people define fear that makes me feel how certain situations are so manipulated to bring one message across while instilling another

    Not sure I have a relationship with god or if there is I don't know about it. I keep hearing people speak about fear in the same sense I would think its respect and vice versa, it's weird.

    I agree, being fear comes with some or a lot of hate.
