Fear image

What is faith?  Faith is the inner knowing that all is well and being directed by an omniscient loving force.  Fear is lack of such knowing.  They are opposites.  To accept a religion or teaching that says, have faith or be damned is to teach faith through fear.  Such teaching relegates God to a despicable tyrant like old king Nebuchadnezzar who demanded his kingdom to worship him or be cast into the fiery furnace. To believe love could be so convoluted is to horribly desecrate both love and God.
