What Does It Mean to Fear the Lord? I answered that question on this episode of Real Truth Real Quick.

Show Notes:

Principles:

  1. God does not punish us for our sin so much as sin is its own punishment. See also Romans 6:23.
  2. The sin that offends God most is when we ascribe to God things that are untrue.
  3. Blasphemy is attributing to God something that is untrue or taking away from God something that is true. When we trifle with Truth, it will cost us.
  4. When you leave God, you are going to leave light, life and love.
  5. To fear the Lord means having a right understanding of who God is.
  6. The bible isn’t a rule book, it’s a love letter in which God reveals himself to us.
  7. Our sin is the constant belief that god is not good, His word is not true, and disobeying Him isn’t a big deal.
