Well, a few thousand years later when many folks couldn't even kill a chicken and ohh'ed and ahh'ed over kittens, the fire and brimstone scared them silly. Their brains shut down and their IQ dropped. You really can't think when you're scared, ever had a gun to your head? Can you imagine it? Try doing the Times crossword then. Fear was no longer a good way to teach! It was perhaps, a tad overkill.
But by then fear also flooded in through every computer and television, so now, even the messages of love didn't work! What to do? Fire and brimstone made them sheep and love just made their lives more bearable!
Well, dear loves, "When fear will loose it's grip, heaven has it's way." So those devices in every home have off switches, you can choose not to live in fear. You can't feel true divine love and heal you until you are not in a state of fear.
Stop letting the media lead you by the nose, find inspirational music, come to Love, the real definition.
