No fear in Love

Love is put to the test in the face of trials, skirmishes, conflict and the like.

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another... There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear... If anyone says, "I love God," yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And [God] has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.

1 John 4:11,18,20-21 (NIV)


Perfect love drives out fear.

Imagine a corrupt priest who leads some sort of cult that believes we must pay for each day. And this priest tells his congregation that if they don't pay up, the next day won't come.

Wednesdays cost RM50. It is the most expensive day. That is why traffic during rush hour was particularly bad last Wednesday (13 September), I think. Simply because our kiasu society wants to make the most of the day they paid so much for.

Think this is far-fetched? Ask the girl who inspired this thought.

...right.

You might want to add that it's not true.

I am NOT in some cult!
