Cookie a day: Fear Destroys Faith

 3 When I am afraid, I will trust in You. 4 In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not fear. What can man do to me?

Psalm 56:3-4

When fear enters the soul, God’s Word builds one’s trust to overcome that which destroys faith. The promises of God fuels the flame within us lest we forget His promises and the flame is snuffed out.

  1. Most people are afraid of man instead of being afraid of God. They prefer to listen to human doctrines instead of taking the words of the Holy Scriptures like they are, i.e. for example when there is written “son of God” to take it that that person is the son of god and not taking him as a god son.

    1. I think that you misunderstand, scripture itself proclaims Jesus as God…read Hebrews 1, John 1:1,14, John 14…etc. Son of God means that Jesus has the same nature of God. Just like we have the same nature of our parents. Our parents are human and so are we, God’s nature is that which makes God who He is, that’s Jesus’ nature. God is creator so is Jesus and in Isaiah Yahweh said: I created all things by myself but in the New Testament Jesus created all things. According to Romans 10 if you deny Jesus as being God you cannot get saved.

      1. We are all created in the image of God.

        John 1:1,14 do not at all say Jesus is God. The apostle has it about the Speaking of God. It is by God His speaking (God’s Word) that everything came into being, also Jesus.

      2. The “Word” in John 1:1 clearly states it’s Jesus as revealed in verse 14 that the Word became flesh. In Revelation 19:13 says, 13 He wore a robe stained with blood, and His name is the Word of God.

        In John 1:1 it says,
        In the beginning was the Word,
        and the Word was with God,
        and the Word was God.

        The Greek word for “with” is Pros which means: to, towards, with.

        The Word was with (towards) God, meaning the Word (Jesus) was face to face with God and than it says the Word (Jesus) was God. God was face to face with a person, Jesus the Word. God was not with an impersonal construct like you suggest which the context and Greek clearly proves you wrong.

    2. Strange, here you contradict yourself with something you said in an other article … “that we do not need works to be saved”.

      Suddenly you tell us that we do have to accept words which are not written (not dying Jesus as being God) in the bible otherwise we “cannot” not be saved.

      Though we do believe what the Bible says

      that Jesus
      is the sent one from God
      really was tempted (God cannot be tempted)
      really died (God cannot dye)
      was three days in hell (what would God have to look there for)
      was taken out of the dead by his heavenly Father (you seem to believe he got himself out)
      was made higher than angels (God was, is and always shall be the Most High)
      was and is still lower than God
      is given the authority by God (you think he is God himself)
      has come to sit at the right hand of God (you think he is God himself so he sits on God his throne and not next to himself)
      has come a mediator between God and man (also something you reject because you think Jesus is god and than Jesus cannot be a mediator between himself)
      and that we have to live according to the commandments of God (which demands self discipline and sometimes lots of work)

      1. Your quote: “Strange, here you contradict yourself with something you said in an other article … “that we do not need works to be saved”.
        “Suddenly you tell us that we do have to accept words which are not written (not dying Jesus as being God) in the bible otherwise we “cannot” not be saved.”

        I’m sorry but here you make no sense, if you can say it again more clearly because it doesn’t make any sense. Maybe than I can answer this part of your comment.

        Your quote: “really died (God cannot dye)”

        God died? That’s some strange way to think that’s what Christians believe. Jesus put on a body of flesh to die, the flesh was that that died not God as seen in Hebrews 10:5-6 that says,
        5 Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said:
        “Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me; 6 with burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased.

        A body was prepared for Christ to die but His nature cannot die only His body died.

        Your quote: “Father (you seem to believe he got himself out)”

        John 10:18
        No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”

        Jesus has the authority and power to resurrect Himself.

        Your quote: “has come to sit at the right hand of God (you think he is God himself so he sits on God his throne and not next to himself)
        has come a mediator between God and man (also something you reject because you think Jesus is god and than Jesus cannot be a mediator between himself)”

        You seem to misunderstand because you don’t know the scripture. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are three different person but all three have the same nature, meaning that all three are one God.

        They are different in title but in nature they are that same God, Yahweh. Now just because you don’t understand it, doesn’t make untrue. When someone is blind he will always give the wrong direction because he doesn’t know where he himself is going.
