You SHOULD be very afraid for yourself. That's the POINT. The BEGINNING of wisdom is FEAR OF GOD!
When I left him, I reasoned thus with myself: I am wiser than this man, for neither of us appears to know anything great and good; but he fancies he knows something, although he knows nothing; whereas I, as I do not know anything, so I do not fancy I do. In this trifling particular, then, I appear to be wiser than he, because I do not fancy I know what I do not know.
The BEGINNING of wisdom is FEAR OF GOD!
Like it, don't like it, it matters not.
This is what the Bible says, so this is the message relayed.
Unitarian Universalist congregations together affirm and promote seven Principles. We also share a “living tradition” of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from many sources.
Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
From what I can observe, the world, universe, and everything around us work in cycles, or circles. Why should the Word of God be any different?
