I see it way too often.
A so called gospel that produces fear rather than hope.
Words that causes one stomach to churn vigorously resulting in the rejection of the true gospel.
“Can’t give the gospel another chance, it put me in a bad place the last time I heard it.”
Is it true love if it’s produced out of fear?
Why wouldn’t you lie to your mother?
Because you respect her, you don’t want to hurt her.
Why do you obey your father?
Because you understand that he knows best.
A word with many definitions.
A word resulting in many different emotions.
A word that is used to abuse those who genuinely seek the Lord in times of trouble.
God is Love. If your fear does not confirm this truth, then you are what is called “afraid”.
What Jesus tells us not to be.
Joh 14:27 “I leave you peace. It is my own peace I give you. I give you peace in a different way than the world does. So don’t be troubled. Don’t be afraid.
