Fear of Hell



Fear of Hell

Fear of hell causes beginners to shun evil.

Desire to be rewarded with divine blessings confers on those who are advancing a readiness to practice the virtues.

But the mystery of love transcends all created beings and makes the intellect blind to all that is sequent to God.

Only upon those who have become blind to all that is sequent to Him does the Lord bestow wisdom, showing them what is more divine.

St Maximos the Confessor
