“One of the most devastating lies that has been injected into the culture that we live in is that we came from monkeys. It’s devastating for this reason: When you get rid of the Creator you get rid of design. When you get rid of design you get rid of purpose. When you get rid of purpose you get rid of accountability, the responsibility to answer for your choices. When you destroy the concept of everyone giving an account to God for their life, then you have completely dismantled the fear of God. The fear of God, the Bible says, ‘Is the beginning of wisdom.’ There is a lot of talk today about no need for the fear of God in the church, because we’re born again and fear drives you from someone, instead of draws you near.” ~ Bill Johnson
