To Fear or Not To Fear?
Is the fear of the Lord simply reverence for God? Or is it something more? And is it really that important, or does it not really make a difference whether we fear God so long as we think we love him?
Today we explore the Bible for truth concerning what the fear of the Lord is and how it impacts our life and our nation, pointing out seven results of the fear of the Lord. Then we talk about how we can learn to have this holy fear of God.

Fear in Society
Throughout Scripture, the only one God tells us to fear is him. Lack of the fear of God removes protection, wisdom and understanding, and the blessings of God from a society. And lack of these things produces fear. We will fear someone or something. The fear of God destroys the fear of other people and things.
For many years, activists have been working very hard to remove the fear of God from our society. But it's not just the athiests and pagans. This effort is being supported even from the pulpit. Not to remove the mention of God, but to remove or minimize the fear of God.
But the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. It is the source of true morality. It is the wellspring of Godly knowledge and understanding. Without it, society begins to crumble. Without the holy fear of God, there is no hope.
We love the people God has called us to reach too much to bow to political correctness and the "seeker friendly" poison that has intoxicated those who do not truly fear God. I believe this is a very important thing to consider when deciding whether to support a ministry.
If a ministry is offering a poluted, dissected, "new and improved" message, let their false god take care of them. We will bow to no other god than the true and living God, and we will paint no other picture than the picture we see of him in the Holy Bible. And if you agree that this is vital, even more so as the day grows dark and the time grows short, then prayerfully consider joining with us as a ministry partner.
Currently there are more than 13,672,538 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number continues to grow by 150,000 to 300,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
