Worse to fear something more than God

- St. Gregory the Theologian

These words of St. Gregory the Theologian are so instructive for us today and will serve as a continual reminder and inspiration for Orthodox Christians struggling to fight the good fight along the narrow path that leads to Life in a world with the apparent rise of Totalitarianism that is paving the way for Antichrist. Wisdom! Let us be attentive!

"There is nothing worse than to fear something more than God, and over this fear become instead of a servant of truth, a traitor to the teaching of truth and faith" (St. Gregory the Theologian, Works of St. Gregory, Sermon 6, Vol. I, p. 192).


We thank the Orthodox Wisdom YouTube channel for providing these illumining words! Its original post can be found at the video down below.
