    Maybe—but if you like Dune, you certainly like to Spice things up…

    I think you are mixing two definitions of the word fear. 1. To be afraid and 2. to be in awe of. If I had fear 1 of God, it would change to only hating God. Definition 2 draws me towards God. Many religious people use definition 1 to control people. Spiritual people use dfinition 2 to inspire people. I prefer to believe God wants companions, not slaves.

    One of my favorite quotes.
    I repeat it to myself everytime I go on a raid or do a tactical assault to apprehend a violent subject or just in my daily “boring” traffic stops.
    I then do two deep breaths and turn go in.
    I do recommend in her case taking some firearm lessons. Men like him tend to come back.
    If he does? Send him back in a body bag.
    Never allow yourself to ever be a victim.

    I agree with you.
    If you fear something you never will seek to learn about it.
    Hence, the Litany Against Fear.
