• Blog post #2, and you take on love and fear. Go Cynthia!

    This post reminds me of something I have known to be true for quite some time: the opposite of faith is not doubt, it is fear.

  • Ooh.  I love the way you put love and fear in two different categories.  I’d never thought of it as being quite like that before.  And what you argue is quite true.  I think this is my favorite part: “Fear is not the opposite of love—it doesn’t belong in the same rank and category as love. All the same, fear does a fabulous job opposing love. That’s because fear doesn’t understand love. Love can go right on being itself despite fear.”

  • So often people will say the opposite of love is hate but I don’t think so. The opposite of love is apathy or indifference.

    Great Post!

    I wonder if the beauty of love vs fear should be considered when making political choices?
