C. S. Lewis, referring to Aslan, the Lion, in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe said: Hes not safe, but hes good. God is good, there is no doubt about that, but is He safe? Are we as Christians in no danger of being harshly disciplined by God the Father? Is there a need for the Christian to fear God?

In Matthew chapter 10 Jesus called His twelve disciples unto Himself and gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. He also instructed them on how and where to preach. Then in verse 28 after warning them that they would be persecuted He added:

And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Since Jesus was speaking to His disciples what He meant here is that Christians should not fear what others do to their bodies. God is the only one that they should fear, for God has the authority to cast them both soul and body in hell. We should fear God alone who is the only one who has the authority to discipline us after death. We should have no fear of those who can only kill the body.
