You shall not be afraid of the face of man, for the judgement is God's - (Deut 1:17)
Filled with God I have nothing to fear

The Master, who respected the laws given out by Moses, says something apparently different: "The Father judges no-one, but has given all judgement to the Son." Is he contradicting the great leader and prophet? No. The "Son" is everyone who deeply accepts sonship and, to the extent that he admits it, he is the expression of the heavenly Father.

God does not stand apart from us but infuses us from the centre of our being to the circumference of our affairs. With mind and heart open to this Truth we have nothing to fear and therefore no need to condemn anyone.

This may seem chilly logic, of little use amid the circumstances and passions of daily life. But it must become an attitude, a way of seeing and approaching all life's experience: "I shall not want, I shall not fear, for Thou art with me."

The Path of Truth Vol. 54, No. 3 page 159.
