Holy Fear Takes Away the Fear of Man

Fear God... - geograph.org.uk - 247682

Thomas Boston, Works, 3:11:

The fear of man bringeth a snare. How many are led aside by the fear of man? They are unwilling to offend men, they desire to please the company. But holy fear takes away this. It teaches us to fear God, and not man. It makes the soul exert all its care to please God, whoever be offended.
