  1. but only thing is # 19. Why fear God or follow him out of fear? It would be more sensible to fear evil. Anyone who truly displays God's love deserves our trust and understanding, not our blind fear.

    1. The fear spoken of is biblical it is more of a reverance or honoring than an actual fear, also i would have to say that a fear of evil would not be becoming of a true christian as we have not been giving a spirit of fear but of a sound mind. I hope you are not offended by this but the Bible speaks against us fearing anything for greater is he who is in us than he who is in the world. God bless
