    Can Love and fear fight? They are "feelings". Or are they not?

    Maybe we should look into it?

    Maybe it is God coming to establish His Ruling.

    Kingdom of David

    Lets see:

    We have the "bosses" and we have the "slaves". The bosses speak and the slaves jump.

    And the "boss" spoke:

    And the "slave" jump.

    He is the "boss" because the controls are in his hands.

    A big responsibility. And in the hands of a human being.

    And according to the situation in the world we need to accept.

    And the "boss" acted on behalf of his new "helpless" "visitor".

    And his "visitor" should be very happy with the "boss" on his side.

    But God is not:

    God against me? For everything I have already suffered for His Name?

    A bitter Medicine.

    And you all thought God is with me?

    Well me being His Wife will just have to accept it.

    God started fighting!

    Against my newly acquired friend which stood up for me.

    And God keeps on and on and on.

    Well maybe He has a point.

    Delphi Forums Login

    And:

    The "boss" thinks so too.

    And the point is made and open for debate

    And the "boss" is starting to ask questions:

    And he has some more.

    Does Love exists?

    Can Love really rule?

    Will the World be a better place?

    Fear vs Love.

    Robertson vs God?

    Love vs fear on the Internet?

    It is written,

    "...Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding." (Job 28:28).

    "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love." (1 John 4:18).

    "But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him." (1 John 2:5).

    "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man." (Ecclesiastes 12:13).

    1 John 4:19 "We love because He first loved us"

    Love is like an outpouring of an overflowing cup. From Father to Son. From Son to Us. From Us to the others in our lives. I noticed someone said "I do not care if God loves me, being loved is overrated, it is better to love others". This is half true. I believe this outpouring happens to all, believers and unbelievers alike. Anyone who has loved anyone, has loved because love was first poured on them. And God is that first source. It may not always feel as though He loves us, we may question His presence or existence. But as soon as we love another, any other, for even a moment, we have the very Evidence of it.

    1 John 4:8 "Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love."

    Yep. Good verses you gave us. But this thread is actually on something totally different.
    It is about the ruling of man vs the ruling of God.

    You will have to read the links also to understand this thread.

    Good general verses brother.

    But if you do not follow the links you will not understand this thread.

    This thread is about God ruling vs man ruling.

    Perhaps this would have been better to explain this in your OP instead of providing a bunch of links, my friend. Most people are not going to read links (unless you are truly interested or unless you specifically are telling someone specific to do so).

    So this thread is about the ruling of man vs the ruling of God.

    So what are the differences?
