Free to love God

From the March 11, 2019 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


In the King James Version as well as other translations of the Bible, the word fear is often used to describe how worshipers should show their reverence for God. For instance, this command seems clear: “And now, Israel, what doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul” ( Deuteronomy 10:12 ).
