I have been thinking quite a bit about 'the fear of the Lord'. Do you think this 'fear' could be compared to or have some similarity to 'awe' or is that a cop-out?My answer:
I would say fear would have to include awe, but it has to be more than awe. I am in awe before the beauty of a quiet lake, but I am in awe in front of a tornado with an entirely different effect on the heart. I think that people talk about God as though he is only the former, and never the latter.What do you all think?
Is 'awe' (which is commonly said) a cop out for describing the 'Fear of the Lord'?
