The God that can kill himself ain't worthy to be feared!

Because God is all forgiving...

But mankind will smile before you and will kill you...


God is loving and easily look away....But you wouldn't know when you must have offended someone who will carefully plan to revenge you....


Fear man....and love God...

To be honest it's something that baffles me even among so-called Christians.

I know a lot of Christians who are so humble before men, they would even literally bow down before their fellow men, try to do things to please men, but when it comes to God, Kai!

It's really astonishing.

I even noticed that it was the same thing in the Bible, where those humble before God like David, Moses, Jesus etc., would be seen as proud by their fellow men, including those who are rejects or seen as proud before God like Eliab, Aaron and Miriam, and the Pharisees.

It's a real mystery.

Perhaps it's because they can't see God physically as they do humans.

They can see man, they can’t see God! They have been told how merciful God is, how he’s gracious, full of compassion, slow to anger, and of great mercy (Psalm 145:8 KJV).

Meanwhile, Just a reminder in case you’re being misled to overlook the divisive ticket that Tinubu is running:

If a Muslim-Muslim ticket succeeds in Nigeria, things like nationwide RUGA and Sharia implementation will be back on the table and you’ll see how fast it passes on the legislative chambers!

Your only chance and power to fight is at the ballot. A word is enough for the wise

Assuming we are still in the days of the old testament, the earth would have been wiped out by now.
Just imagine, you get instant judgement of your sin.
We have taken God for granted because we know He's ever forgiven nor matter the gravity of our offense.

Because man exists while god most likely doesn't

There's a reason someone who believes there's a god that's everywhere and knows all will still take a gun and murder someone in a remote location and after doing the deed he will then scan around to see if there was anyone that saw him and then relax when he sees no one was really there.
Because they know a single man seeing them would be very bad for them but doesn't give a shit that omnipresent god is there with them

A pastor would be sleeping with all the beautiful girls and women in his congregation both single and married and when he's caught by just a single person he'd beg the person not to tell anyone despite the god they claim exists is right there with them. because in their heart of hearts they know the god they keep preaching about don't exist but since what they are doing is bringing in money properties and pussies they'd rather keep pretending than go to poverty

If a man tell you God punish or kill you go home and have some chill drink

But if a man tell you he will kill you, you better be scared and put up defenses

Man is more dangerous than both God and Satan combined.

Plus people are more afraid of who they can see than who they can't

Because the don't who they really are.

Fear of man, fear of the unknown, fear of failure and even fear of fear itself.

Until you know who you really are, you will keep living in fear.

Many have put aside the word and would go with what they can get from the pulpit on Sundays as long as it is suiting to the ears. The pulpit too has a way of manipulating the mind as there is the natural desire for power and control in man.

When men start doing personal daily meditation on the word of God, it would be gradual mindshift.
Re: Why Do People Fear Man Rather Than God? by OnyeAshuaUru: 8:32am On Dec 04, 2022
The question should be, why do people fear the illusory phantom called God at all instead of tripling their fears for the selfish, malevolent being called man?

It is because when all is said and done the story of God is a great fairy tale.

Because they don't believe in God... they just follow religion because they were born into it...


If you really know God! You will fear him

It's hell that people fear more. Tell people there's no hell and watch how they put away anything concerning righteousness.
Extreme debauchery and wickedness will bloom and flourish if there's no fear of hell. Even in the presence of law enforcements(men).

Because most people unconsciously don't believe in God.

However, they just can't consciously accept the fact that they don't believe in God because of irrational fear of the unknown.

Also because they think it's crazy not to believe in God they have been brainwashed from childhood to believe in.
