Fear and Loving

Andrew,

I don’t necessarily disagree with you, but it seems you’re courting the great big no-no of building a whole theology out of one verse. I could just as easily point to “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,” which has the added benefit of being so true God put it in the Bible twice (Prov 9:10 and Psalm 111:10). Why not build off those instead?

Like I said, you may be right, but I’d like to see a little more support.

  1. I’m using one verse that I believe reflects a larger, overarching biblical stream of thought. It is, I believe, a verse that is representative of a framework, summing it up. I already commented on the fear of the Lord. That verse could be used, similarly, however, as an interpretive starting point for a biblical framework of wisdom.

  2. I’d like to see more support that this does in fact reflect a larger biblical stream of thought. I could pretty easily write up support for the importance of fearing God.
