‘No one enters into the Kingdom of Heaven by fear’ or why I love Emil Brunner


“One scarcely hears a sermon any more about The Judgment. Perhaps in former times there was too much and too rash preaching on this subject, motivated by a desire to drive men into the Kingdom of Heaven by fear. No one enters into the Kingdom of Heaven by fear, and the man who tries to do God’s will out of fear simply does not do God’s will.” — Emil Brunner, in Our Faith 

Brunner was a Gifford Lecturer; more about that here.
