G'd holds you accountable, so the idea is to hold yourself accountable, the saying is " wisdom comes with the fear of G"d " and its a simple reminder to hold yourself accountable...or He will.

Yeah this is where religion trips me off. If fear is hate, why should we hate the lord? But I have no quelms with treating the lord as a father figure.

How, in your mind, is fear hate? I fear many things, but don't hate them, and I hate many things, but don't fear them. What equates the two in your mind?

Point taken, I think I might need to reread some of this again for they must be in different contexts. Alas, I realize I got a lot to learn in the Jedi Order.
In Episode one Yoda "Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering".

Ah yes, a classic quote, but can fear become hate through anger if they are already the same? ;)

You're already taking your first steps, and that's what matters. :)
