1 John 4:
18 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 2:
9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
>^o^<
Perfect love does these two things: it keeps the commandments of God and it also casts out fear.

Which does not mean we should not fear God.
1 Peter 2:17 (NKJV)
17 Fear God.
2 Kings 17:25 (NKJV)
25 And it was so, at the beginning of their dwelling there, that they did not fear the LORD; therefore the LORD sent lions among them, which killed some of them.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.

We love, because He first loved us.

"making them an example"

2 Peter 2:4-6 (NKJV)
4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly; 6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly;

Without the fear of the Lord, there is no reason "in their hearts" to respect Him and obey Him.

Faithful service to God and obedience to Christ is rooted in the FEAR OF THE LORD.

Just delivering my soul.

Truth: "Faithful service to God and obedience to Christ is rooted in the FEAR OF THE LORD. "

Could you explain that?
Are you saying people serve God faithfully and obey Christ because they fear the Lord?
That people wouldn't be faithful and obedient if they didn't fear Him?

God is not like man.

God doesnÂ’t lie.

God is not human, that he should lie,
not a human being, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill?

Yes, there is but One. The offering of Christ Jesus on the cross at Calvary was the last sacrifice.
