The Fear of God vs. The Fear of Demons

“Concering God Himself, we are to fear Him with such a reverent awe of His holy majesty as will make us careful to please Him in all things and fearful of offending Him. This is ever accompanied by a fearsome distrust of ourselves. The fear of God which is evil in a Christian is that servile bondage which produces a distrustful attitude, kills affection for Him, regards Him as a hateful tyrant. This is the fear of demons”.
-A.W.Pink, Hebrews Comm. p.193
