Fear Not!

Fear is our enemy always! Narrow minded you might say. Perhaps a little to emphatic as a lifestyle mindset to be lived out in the ‘’real world”? Well, ask yourself this question: When is the last time “fear” brought with it a solution to the thing you feared? My hope is that “Fear Not” exposes the truth that fear in any genre, for any reason, while seeming to be right, only leads to more fear.

About Bill Taylor

Hello to all with a few words of transparent testimony. I believe when it comes to the topic of "faith" it's good and appropriate to know the heart of the writer you are reading.

If you've perused my writings I trust you have noticed that I'm a non-conformist thus not religious per say. In fact, my greatest concern in life is to be dismissed as a "religious person".

From day one of my sojourn with God it's always been a "real or nothing" mind-set I've walked in. Admittedly never perfect and often awkward, but that has been and continues to be, the road I've traveled.

At 27 years of age Jesus literally stole my heart. I did not join a "Club". I fell in love and entered the "Kingdom" of my lover. To me, that was as serious as it gets!

To be honest, I consider religiosity and reality to be opposites with religion being the synthetic replacement for a life transforming relationship with God through the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Thus, I have no appetite for the many institutional labels being offered. Truthfully, I have never been able to eat from that table with any degree of comfort.

You see, I don't desire to be conformed or reformed but rather "transformed" into a more accurate reflection of Jesus. I do believe that's the "singular" purpose of my journey!

Apart from the descriptive "Disciple Of Jesus", I have zero interest in wearing "add-on identities". If "Disciple" ALONE was good enough for the originals two thousand years ago, it's still good enough for me today. No superiority enhancing up-grades needed for my soul to feel complete in Christ. I have noticed that given time to cultivate, additions have a historically confirmed pattern of becoming self-inflating, divisive, subtractions.

In short: I am a "Christian" whose heart becomes quite confused when asked: "What Kind?" My spirit echoes The Apostle Paul's words that he penned with the deepest of spiritual sincerity: "I want to know CHRIST". Simply stated: That is "The Kind" I am and totally fulfilled being so!

It's an amazing life being the sheep of a SHEPHERD who can stand ALONE in His altogether loveliness as the singular object of my heart's affection!

While my writings may not adhere to the status quo at times, I do hope at the very least they provide food for thought.

A good sample but I would have liked it to be longer to give more insight. Good for a quick reminder, though. One note: thorn in the side is used two or three times in the OT to mean menacing neighbors. I have no reason to think Paul meant anything other than that. It would account even more with the author's reasoning not to fear.
