Growing up in Christian community and graduating from a Christian University certainly exposed me to many concepts of the Christian religion. Many concepts and beliefs I cannot agree with today. It is just not in Christianity but all the Abrahamic religions, including Muslims and Jews.
I use to have theology discussions with my brother-in-law, Rod. I met Rod while attending college. He became a Christian Minister while I went in the opposite direction. I knew there was something greater, something divine but I was not going to find my answers by studying and understanding only one religion and only religion. Over the years I studied, contemplated and pondered many religions, belief systems and philosophy. Rod married my sister and became what I would consider a conservation Christian Minister. I did actually see that conservative minister start opening up to different concepts. Then he died suddenly on a cold winter night trying to save some people in a car that had flipped on the interstate because of black Ice. A bus that could not stop hit him and the car. We lost a remarkable person that night, that I miss dearly. So I am having this discussion with him through you, the reader.
The discussion is fear and what is fear to you? We all have our experiences with fear, and something most would probably try to avoid. It is defined as an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. Be afraid of someone or something, as likely to be dangerous, painful, or threatening.
Fear is a negative emotion or feeling playing out in our heads and even in our hearts. Fear is a weakness that has programmed into each of us since birth, through our communities, religious affiliations. Good examples from all three religions are as follows:
From the Christian Bible in Luke 12:5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. In 2Co 5:11 Therefore knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; and I hope that we are made manifest also in your consciences.
There are many verses that indicate that not only is the fear of God taught in the New Testament, but it is essential to the Christian’s spiritual life
From the Quran Surah Nahl, 128 Indeed, Allah is with those who fear Him and those who doers of good.
Taqwa is the Arabic word for the “fear of God”. “Fear God Wherever You Are” is even used on Religion of Islam websites.
The Jewish Bible, the Tanakh is the oldest of the three, believed to be written at different times between 1200 and 165 BC . Much of its dogma, doctrines and disciplines carried over into Christianity and Islam. In the Torah Deuteronomy 4:10 Never forget the day when you stood before the LORD your God at Mount Sinai, where he told me, ‘Summon the people before me, and I will personally instruct them. Then they will learn to fear me as long as they live, and they will teach their children to fear me also.’
Deuteronomy maybe the foundation of the Abrahamic Religion for fear with its many verses.
Fear of God is the principle that has been laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true encompasses each Abrahamic religion and it started with Moses and the 10 commandments. The Law of One indicates the origin of the 10 commandments was from negative entities called Orion with the purpose for conquest and enslavement by establishing an elite class. Session 16.15through 16.20.
How do you love something you fear. Jesus tells us to Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” How does one Love God and fear God at the same time. Seems to be a conflict and when there are contradicting words, that may be proof the entity has not yet entered into a harmonious relationship with Divine Intelligence, the one true God.
Fear does not make us wiser or more knowledgeable it keeps us in the dark, afraid to look outside the window. That is why religions have used the word heresy, a belief or opinion contrary to orthodox religious doctrine, to keep followers from straying. Heretics have been killed because their beliefs were contrary to their religion and still are today. Muslims, Jews, and Christians have been shaped not only by the theologies and beliefs of the three religions, but the historical circumstances in the foundation for religious understanding that has carried on for centuries.
Let’s consider God as the highest of cosmic hierarchy of Consciousness, the cosmic mind, Infinite Divine Intelligence, or Spirit with subtle fields of energy in every living thing. Science is working with energy fields called the divine matrix and biofield or a host of other names in an attempt to describe the indescribable.
Spirit encompasses all and is available to all. Earth is our cosmic school to learn the ways of love and wisdom. It is about our polarity, positive and negative, good and evil and to balance our body, mind, body and spirit so we may graduate and move to the next dimension to learn new lesson. You will need 51 percent of positive polarity passing grade to advance. You and your higher self will be the Judge of whether you made the grade after death. If you did not make the grade you get to do it again, reincarnated into the third density, not just here but anywhere in the universe. There is no fear, only love, healing and compassion waiting to help us tap into the source to help us succeed.
The Law of One was an event that occurred in 1981. It has been said to be “One of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus”. The contact was made by an advanced extraterrestrial, known as social memory complex, from the 6th dimension, messenger of the Law of One . The contact was made so the group could ask questions and answers were given. The group recorded and documented over 2360 questions and answers in 106 sessions from 1981 to 1984. Answers were given in a scientific and metaphysical vocabulary. It is available for anyone with the will and desire to study the advanced spiritual teachings. Not only does the Law of One provide spiritual insight but it may also provide a better understanding the comic hierarchy of consciousness. The Law of One transcript, with search options, is available for free. Scott Mandelker PhD, is an excellent teacher and his understanding and reading for the complete Law of One series is available on YouTube.
