The Fear of the Lord

Wisdom of the Ages

The Fear of the Lord.

“Only those who fear the Lord and keep His commandments have life with God. But as to those who do not keep His commandments, there is no life in them…. All, therefore, who despise Him and do not follow His commands deliver themselves to death, and each will be guilty of his own blood. But I implore you to obey His commands…” 

The Shepherd of Hermas, (A Book written in 125 AD)
