Fear and Love (Sin and God)
This will either make some of you angry or joyful, either way I want to share this...
Something many people lack today is knowledge. Not the knowledge that can be taught but the knowledge that God himself has given us. The animals know how to instinctively do things, not taught by their mother, As are we. We are not taught to see, or to touch, to hear or to speak, to be hungry or not; It is all inside of us as we were created that way. When the bible speaks of being born into sin, we are being born into fear. Fear is sin and sin is fear. In the beginning, we knew only LOVE. The knowledge obtained by Adam and Eve was not the ability to learn or to know but to FEEL fear!
We have two basic emotions: Love & Fear.
Emotions are not what you may think. Crying, or screaming or your heart racing from anger are physical attributes caused by the underlining emotion. All emotions like anger, or lust, or pride, joy, ego, ect. ALL STEM FROM LOVE OR FEAR.
We all have God inside of us. That is the love we feel. God is love and love is God. Fear on the other hand, is absence of faith. Faith being "To blindly follow". In order to understand Love and Fear, I will use the biblical story of Jesus Christ.
Jesus is God in the physical form. He existed to teach people how to live, how God wanted us to live. He was a strong man. He always loved and turned away from fear. When he was put on the cross, he died to "save us". He died FOR love. In order to be saved from ourselves, we must know Jesus and his teachings, correct? Well it's not as complex as it sounds. To know Jesus is to know love and to know love is to know God. You must repent FEAR (or sin) as Jesus did, to truly know LOVE (God!).
People often find trouble in believe how God is every where, at all times. When explained that God is in fact love, its not so hard to understand, now is it? We all feel and have love inside of us, but we also have fear. God is everywhere, not by angels, but by the love in own beings. EVERYTHING responds to ONLY two things; Love & Fear. Jesus taught us about this in the bible. That was his purpose. When you speak love and life into anything on this planet, the reaction or action you get will ALWAYS be positive. When you approach anything with fear or anger, the out come will be negative.
I have said this for many years and it is true. We are not body's with souls, but souls with body's. In understanding that, you must understand our body's are only "ships" if you will, in which to carry our soul or our living being. Many people approach every day life in or unto the physical which is why life, itself, makes no sense. Life is not about the senses, but the perception of the senses. We see what we want to see, in other words. Two people can look at someone dying and see two completely different things.
Religion has never been a word I like to use as it is merely a following of several people under one guideline of beliefs. People who live by religion are often driven by... FEAR. To truly understand life, faith, joy, ect. You need to understand love and fear. Every belief system is based on those two things, and those two things only.
People have lost their God given knowledge for their fear in understanding. Life on this planet has become a fear based business of life and death.
One scripture I would like to point out is Proverbs 13:10:::
"By pride, comes only contention."
Pride is an emotion stemming from fear. The contention it causes is an argument/dispute of one's inter being between LOVE & FEAR.
The seven deadly sins are actually seven fears.
Pride - is excessive belief in one's own abilities, that interferes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise. Pride is also known as Vanity.
The fear - an argument of not feeling equal to, but greater than. Your "pride gets hurt" when you suddenly feel inadequate. The fear lies in the actual action or "feeling" itself. When you feel pride, you fear such prepositions that you rise above it, or rebel as the fear is to be equal to or less than.
Envy - is the desire for others' traits, status, abilities, or situation.
The fear - it stems from the fear of not being good enough.
Gluttony - is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires.
The fear - is simple starving or the fear of not being satisfied.
Lust - is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body.
The fear - is the opposite of physical love; in that, meaning, you fear true relationships with another of the opposite sex. So you, fantasize or "lust" after them in only physical means, not spiritual or emotional.
Anger - is manifested in the individual who spurns love and opts instead for fury. It is also known as Wrath.
The fear - of love; or rejection of love itself, love of which you do not understand. Your fear this and thus, become angry.
Greed - is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual. It is also called Avarice or Covetousness.
The fear - is truly, of spiritual life itself. You find "pride" in the physical and fear in the nonphysical.
Sloth - is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work.
The fear - is to have a digress view on life, and fear what living may bring. (Good and Bad)
So to sum things up, we live by only two means. Love and fear, in love we find God, goodness, joy, faith, fullness... But in fear we find the opposite.
