懼怕含有刑罰,懼怕的人在愛裡未得完全。”(約翰一書 4:18)

東正教幫助我們驅逐恐懼,任何形式的恐懼:害怕死亡、害怕失敗、害怕別人利用我們和我們的善良、害怕別人背叛我們。不論人們如何傷害我們,他們背叛的不僅是我們,也背叛了住在我們身內的耶穌。

請不要因為恐懼而信奉宗教,你追隨信仰,是因為這向你敞開通往愛的道路。如果你成為基督徒,只是為了避免下地獄,記得你的信仰將永遠會有問題。這不是真信仰,只是恐懼的另一面,你也會以隱藏的威脅或恐嚇……等相似的方式來對待他人。

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”(1John 4:18).

The orthodox church helps us to cast out the fear. Any kind of fear, fear of the death, fear of failure, fear that others will take advantage of us, of our kindness, that they betray us. No matter they do this to us, they betray not only us but Jesus himself whom we carry in our bodies.

Please do not follow a religion because you are afraid anything but because this will open you the way to love. If you become Christians because you want to avoid the hell remember you will have always a problem in what you think is your faith. It is not real faith but the other side of fear. And you will behave to others by similar way, by cover threatening, or blackmailing them.

~Fr. Jonah
