If you really feared God, you wouldn't lie so much. Example "He says... because I said it, it is so..." No, I said because this scripture says so.FYI Dana... Here was my response to your accusation that I feared death:
I beg to disagree.... I have no fears of dying... it's the next step of order, living in eternity.
It's not over after this...
This temporal life on earth is hear to see what we got! We will be placed in an orderly faashion... based on what we prove of ourselves down here.
Just as being born was the first step... dying is the next step... it's not over after this.
Now... fearing God is another thing...
He says... because I said it, it is so...
CONSEQUENCES... CONSISTENT CONSEQUENCES for all are his promise.
This earth life is a test... we will suffer consequences or rewards for our choices.
Isn't it a marvelous plan?
WE are here to do our DUTY... not make excuses...
DUTY is a strong word.
That does not mean cheat the system.
They say you bed with a rattlesnake and your sure to get bit.
Apparently you don't fear the word of God also, or you wouldn't be so worried about "duty". God gave me a gift of salvation, good luck trying to earn yours.
