Some spiritual paths teach us to fear the wrath of God but that seems a rather strange belief. Why fear God, if God is Love? A Course in Miracles tells us that God is Love. It also says that we are not guilty sinners who will be judged by Him. God created His Son (all of us) by extending Himself in Love. And as He endowed us with His creative powers, if we want to conform to His Will, then we, too, should extend love to all who cross our paths.
In the Workbook we read on page 331: “You are His Son, completing His extension in your own. We practice but an ancient truth we knew before illusion seemed to claim the world. And we remind the world that it is free of all illusions every time we say: "God is but Love, and therefore so am I.”
And Lesson 103 reminds us:
“God, being Love, is also happiness.
To fear Him is to be afraid of joy.”
