    Except again, "fear" of God does not mean being terrified of him. You may need to go back to the Hebrew to see it because English does not do justice to the meaning of God's awesomeness.

    A relationship based on modern English usage of "fear" and terror is not the type of relationship he wants with us. There would be no point, and would be in opposition to God's character.

    In fact, it's more in line with Satan's desire to deceive us into believing that God is a vengeful, evil being who wishes to do us harm, and controls us through terror and force.

    Nope, that's not God.

    Would you value a relationship with a person who was only with you because they were terrified to leave, a person who obeyed you solely because they were scared of what you might do to them if they didn't?

    Terrified? you just upped things a notch...I never used that term, why would you do that? See, that would make all I said sound unreasonable/unbiblical if one were to see I'm saying be terrified of God. Seems a little tricky what you tried to accomplish there.

    I was very clear in my post the whys to my claims, do with them as you will.
