I constantly see the Christians here talk about god is love. The bible is full of God telling people to fear him. The bible constantly states that the way to understand and follow god\'s law is to fear him. Why do Christians seem so obsessed with stating their love for God but down playing the fear he seems to demand?

Ahamoment please don't respond.

Every time I ask one of these questions about why what I was taught as a child about my former religion is so contradictory to the bible the Christians ignore it. The only one who always responds is Ahamoment but I'm familiar with his new age version of Christianity and its very from from what is in the actual bible.

Yes but even Luke says 1:50 His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation

While the love and mercy of God is more prevalent than the fear in the new testament it is still there. I can answer the question for myself from a more historical interpretation but I am looking for a religious explanation.

I will say that white evangelicals seem much more willing to speak of fear of god. When I heard of Pualine Christianity it made much more sense. White evangelicals take their lead from Paul who give the church its conservative, new testament structure. I can understand that many black Christians disagree with that view of Christianity. Since so few of them seem to speak of their faith as not being focused on the bible as not being the inerrant word of god, i wounder why they don't adhere to it more closely. Even when it is uncomfortable.

The Prime Mover doesnt require or need fear. Its absolutely ridiculous to think it does.

God is gender neutral btw..or so ive come to conclude.
A pure infinite energy wouldnt need somethin as basic as gender

I don't know your religion but I notice that the Christians never answer any question that does not cast the bible in what we today consider a positive light.

You clearly do not view the bible as your ultimately earthly authority. Most New age Christians do not view themselves as such. Once you start describing the Christian God as energy and denying his gender that is mentioned many times in the bible, including by Jesus, you enter new age territory.

And who would that be. As an atheist I view it appropriate to ask people about their relationship with their religion. I'm realizing that most of the Christians on here do not have a strong relationship with the bible. I can understand that. When I was Christian I also had a weak relationship with the bible. When I tried to strengthen that relationship I was so appalled I lost my faith.

My question is directed at Christian members (who are not new age Christians) of BGC because its about Christian members of BGC. Why would I ask members of the clergy why christian members of BGC don't mention their fear of God?
