Threats.


Many people in the Church will act in a threatening way if you challenge their integrity or their theology.

This is because, as children, their parents enforced their ethics with threats.

And fear begets fear.

But fear is not a good motivation - conscious or otherwise.

We see this in the words of the Bible.

But there is no fear in God.

God does not threaten us.

His goodness and love are free gifts.

This is Grace.

So let go of your fear and give love.
