The Reason to Fear

Fear is a dreadful thing. However, a fear born out of sin is deadly. Consequentialism, as part of normative ethics, emphasises an outcome orientation based on someone’s actions. It is about the greater good, not solely for the individual but for the entire society. People at fault have many reasons to fear being caught in their acts. No one fled if no one was pursuing them. Any wrongdoing comes with consequences comprising guilty conscience, fearful thoughts about others finding out what they did, and the certainty that they will not succeed in avoiding retribution. A Christian who obeys the natural law and the rules and regulations have nothing to fear. They are blameless though that does not means they are perfect. Instead, they have learned to recognise that being Christ-like comes with a price, which is avoiding at all costs any attitudes or any behaviour that will damage the Personhood of our Lord Jesus Christ.
