On Fear, Pride’s Muscle

Fear is the enemy’s tool, right up there with pride which initiates it. Fear of discovery that lies will collapse as they always do. Fear of death. Worse is fear of pain. Death comes once and there is an end to it. Fear continues as long as you allow it to rule with pride in your mind. Fear is pride’s muscle. People who sin fear consequences so lie more creating bigger sin creating more fear. It’s goal is destruction. Not just of life but eternity. Fear with pride keeps people from salvation more than anything else. What will happen if I tell the truth, which is what repentence upon salvation looks like. Truth will set you free but fear says it will not free you but humiliate you if people find out. You may lose loved ones or divorce if your spouse is told of pornography addictions or other adultery. Jobs may be lost if bosses find out about money laundering. Children may be alienated to find a parent who admits hatred or evil desires. Salvation is exposition and that is fought by pride and fear in so many people. Isn’t eternity in heaven and out of hell worth discomfort, even pain? And isn’t Almighty God able to work miracles of forgiveness otherwise? Food for thought…❤
