Elder Cleopa: If you want to go straight before God, you need two walls

HE that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.

Proverbs 25:28

Elder Cleopa Ilie (+1998)

IF you want to go straight before God, you need two walls.  Not of brick or stone or earth, but two spiritual walls.

Have fear of God on the right, because the Prophet Daniel says, “With fear of God, man is diverted from all evil.”

On the left have fear of death because the Son of Sirach says, “Son, remember your end and you will not sin.”

These two good deeds — fear of God and remembrance of death — deliver a man from all sin.

Elder Cleopa Ilie (+1998).

**

GUIDE me, O Lord, in thy way, and I will walk in thy truth: let my heart rejoice, that I may fear thy name.

I will give thee thanks, O Lord my God, with all my heart; and I will glorify thy name for ever.

For thy mercy is great toward me; and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

Psalm 85(86):11-13, LXX.
