The Fear of God

I felt "led" to write something that was bothering me about the fear of God or rather the lack of fear I saw in myself and others. Many like myself, who accepted Christ through a revelation of God's goodness and love, have a harder time realizing the fearsomeness of God. Then that view is reinforced by much mainstream Bible teaching. It is to our detriment. I ran across such a complete discussion of the fear of God on the Acts 17:11 website, I found it unnecessary to say more. Here is the link.

"Why is it we will not accept the fear of God? Why do we try to "explain away" the fear of God in Scripture?"
