Whom Should You Fear?


Whom should you fear?  

"Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather be afraid of the Lord, who can destroy both body and soul in hell."

                                                  - Matthew 10.28

Pay attention to the last two words of the above scripture passage.   

Where and when does God destroy the body and soul?  

Destruction by the Lord occurs when there is hell on earth and in hell.  

When people incite Sodom and Gomorrah -like conditions, temptations and sins, then the possibility of destruction by the Lord greatly increases.  

Some people's temptation into sins of the flesh, abuse of power and superpower only accelerate hell -like conditions leading to destruction and damnation.  

Imagining yourselves saved while practicing sins of the flesh, abuses of power and corruption only continues on down the path of damnation and destruction without possibility of redemption, because of the lack of remorse and confession, repentance and atonement.  

When some supervillains imagine having super powers while committing super abuses in harm and injuries as god-like, those that understand wisdom and faith, view it as super weaknesses in feeding sins and thus super accelerations towards hell and destruction.  

"Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked him, "Why couldn't we drive the demon out?"

"It was because you do not have enough faith," answered Jesus.  "I assure you that if you have faith as big as a mustard seed, you can say to this hill, 'Go from here to there!' and it will go....."

                                                 - Matthew 17.19-20

Why couldn't some superpower that are unholy drive out demons?  

Because closer to being one than faithful ones.  

Practices of sins and temptations remove faith in the Lord. 

Instead of being faithful servants to the Lord, the unholies become slaves to sins and Satan.

Whom should you fear?  


Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
