Consequences, Completeness and Comfort (1 John 4:13-5:1)Rev Gareth James, June 3, 2018
Part of the True Truths for Testing Times series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
We may know people with phobias or have some ourselves. As we are here in the church I assume none of us suffer from Ecclesiophobia – a fear of churches. Some may have a fear of falling in love - Philophobia. Some even have a cringing fear of God - Theophobia, while some have a fear of judgement, the Day of Judgement – Krisisphobia.
There is a progression in John’s writing - see attached outline. Yet believers, those who truly do not need to have a cringing fear of God or the Day of Judgement, are often those who can be crippled and paralysed by the cringing fear both!
