When we have freed ourselves from the idols of this world there remains one stumbling block to overcome.
This is the temptation of religious fundamentalism.
Fundamentalism in any religion leads to judgemental, simplistic, and hard-hearted behavior. It is legalistic and Pharisaic.
This is because fundamentalism is driven by fear.
Beginning and ending with the fear of God.
And anything which is driven by fear is not inspired by Love and therefore does not come from God.
Love is fundamental to God.
So give up your fear and immerse yourself in Love.
Love God and love your neighbor.
Most of all give love.
