Why do I fear the Lord?
Let me count the ways!...
Proverbs 9:10,"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,and knowledge of the holy one is understanding."
Psalm 112:1,"Blessed is the man who fears the Lord,who finds great delight in His commands."
Psalm 34:7,"The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him,and He delivers them."
If you had a Concordance,you could look up many,many passages relating to the fear of the Lord,but something tells me you won't!
But if you'd rather know what Karl Marx has to say,you might find this rather interesting...
"When all political foundations of religion are wiped out,when the organization and the institutional structure of the church are destroyed,then
normally religious faith,the Christian faith,would have to disappear. But it is not out of the question that the Christian faith will survive anyhow.
This would mean that there is a religious reality that does not depend soley on the sociological and the institutional;and under these conditions we
would have to heed this reality,which is not in the category of traditional religion."
I don't think of myself as one of the "masses" in need of an "opiate". What I am is a "sinner" in need of "salvation",and I have that
through my faith in Jesus Christ.
But you're right,I will be back to this subject,and if you care to continue this conversation,I'll be around!
