If God is love, why we have to fear Him? (Note : I don´t believe in gods , but would like to know your answers).

I love God. I will not fear of God. Who feel fear of god means who will always do mistakes that fellows must fear of god. I will not do any mistake

where love exists, fear dosen't step there. in my opinion God is full of love and when we love God we fear nothing.

- I think his love makes us draw near to him, which has a good effect upon us. And fear makes us stay away.. or run away.. which has bad effect.. [I think a couple of "mistranslations" and a couple of misunderstandings of him, causes us to 'fear' him. God surely can only be Perfect.. and "God is Love" (1 jn 4:8) all of it, all love, that's him.]

His love is more important - Because he is Love and fear is the devil. We were made to love him not to fear him. After all, this is one of our purposes of living this earthly life!! Love him from all of your heart and all of your sou,l he is your heavenly father!!
