Love and Hate vs. Fear

No Fear

Recently, a physician made an interesting point in his blog. He noted that most people would probably say that the opposite of love is hate. He went on to explain why he believed that such a conclusion is not the case at all. He reminded us that love and hate are actually two sides of the same coin of attraction. They describe a relationship. There is still an attraction between them. Be it good or not so good, there is never-the-less a connection between two parties.

His conclusion is that the opposite of love is really fear. Fear is the result of being alone, having no connection with another human or with God. Loneliness is so fearful precisely because it is completely disconnected from both love and hate. Being on your own is a very fearful thing. When there is no one to share your accomplishments or even your foibles with, when there is no one to love or hate, fear can soon turn into madness.

Fear not. Do not be afraid. God is love. Love your neighbor even as God loves you and as you love youself. Love your wife or husband and children even as God loves them. Do this and you will never be alone. You will have nothing to fear! You will know the one and only and true God. And you will know that death itself cannot separate you from the love of God.
