The Ultimate Fear of God
Harness Your Fear and Let It Motivate You
Traditionally "The Fear of the Lord" is understood as respect. I believe it has a deeper meaning, a meaning that helps us deal with fear. Why should God create a world in which there are things to fear? Because fear is a necessary motivator. It is the compliment of the Glory of God. For the finest experience we place ourselves Between The Fear and The Glory of God. Master your fear, be in peace, and turn to the Glory. In such a state our spirit is roused to a passion. The power of passion is sufficient to transcend our condition. How much do you live? It depends on your motivator and your goals. There will come a time when humanity will be faced with the ultimate fear and glory, and we will turn to the glory. "The city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof." (Revelation 21:23) When we learn to love perfectly fear falls away; There is no fear in love: "True love has no room for fear, because where fear is, there is pain; and he who is not free from fear is not complete in love." 1 John 4:18
A fundamentalist will quickly say that the efforts of man to save himself with gadgets and tools will bring on the antichrist. This is true. In accordance with Christian doctrine there must be an appearance of the antichrist. I think the Antichrist is the very worst of man empowered by the very best technology. Any technology has its peaceful and destructive aspects and is always applied in both spirits. Remember the atomic bomb and nuclear power. With the mind expanding technologies of the future there is the potential for very good and very bad. Christ and the Antichrist will fully manifest. Our mind has the potential to commune via electromagnetic frequencies with all sorts of mechanical interfaces and sensing devices. Our governments knows that we can apply this to the battlefield. DARPA put out a call for papers and proposals several years ago. What happened? Did this also go underground? Their intention is to train and equip soldiers to take mind control of a battlefield. Once this is started, a new type of arms race is on to develop and implement the most advanced systems. This will lead to super-intelligent aggressors and defenders. Remember your history; atomic fission was discovered in 1939. In secrecy the BOMB was developed and used only 6 years later. We were motivated then by the fear of an axis country getting this terrible weapon before we did. Apply the same logic to brain interfacing technology and it is a slippery slope down to Armageddon. With evolving brain interfaces super intelligent aggressors will hyperevolve into what you know as the Antichrist. But in the Holy Spirit, the Christian Transhumanist will harness the fear that comes from powerful brain interface technologies and use this same technology to transcend the world.

Thank you Dr Alaniz for letting me post your essay. I believe that the Christian Meme, and an integrated Perennial Philosophy will carry us through these challenges.
Scientific American March 2005; "If the acceleration (of our expanding universe) itself increased, it could eventually grow strong enough to tear apart all structures, leading to a “big rip.” Nothing in the material universe can survive this.
"Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus." (Revelation 14:7)
Love rules and ignorance dies. Just like the movies, good will win in the end. The same technology is available to loving individuals. This technology is better adapted to the love process. We will focus the motivating energy into the passion necessary for transcendence. The Antichrist will likely emerge but so will Christ. This becomes a sign that Christian Transhumanism is the way. Here is my advice: Use The Love Process now and forever. Here is the love process again; Technically, love can be seen as the process of connecting. The product of the love process is understanding. If the process is efficient and sustained, understanding increases exponentially. Peace allows unwavering attention so that the love process can establish a clear connection. At the heart of the process; symbols, words, and feelings are ordered into meaning. But meaning is not static, it grows forever. Forgiveness is important to spiritual growth because it establishes an exhaust for misunderstanding and disorder. Put this all together and you have The Perfect State of Mind. With these principles we will build the New Temple; a society of loving individuals. Anything that empowers the Love process has the blessing of God. You can do no wrong when the spirit of love, the Holy Spirit is with you. And, It is said; "If you are trying to save your life for any other reason than love, you will lose it." There is one way to life and truth. This wisdom is eternal. It takes love.
