  • I provided the link for many reasons. Fearing God is misunderstood if the fact that fear is universal. Even Christians have a conscience and use it, same as a Buddists, atheist, etc. Using your conscience is healthy. Using God to guide your conscience is healthy. I am just trying to tie it all together. I do not fear God because of punishment. I do not fear God because of reward. I respect Him.

  • Fear? No. Do I have reverence and awe? Yes.

    I don't believe in a personal, anthropomorphic creator god though. To me, the concept of God is equivalent to the Universe, and we are all part of the Universe. I don't believe in a personal god who's giving out punishments for not obeying, but I do believe our actions have consequences, our words matter, and we should be aware of our interconnectedness and treat each other with love and compassion for the good of the community and all of us.
