Question: Someone suggested that even Buddhists should fear God. Is this sensible?
Answer: How about asking which of the millions of gods worshipped throughout history should be the one feared? And how is one more threatening than the others? It is taught by some that we should be god-fearing. However, in the first place, there is no particular deity to be feared, even so-called potentially ‘almighty and angry’ ones – because they do not and cannot exist. Why this is so can be seen at http://thedailyenlightenment.
Question: Does this mean Buddhists should simply be fearless?
