I do good and avoid evil because I love God, not because I fear God.
What is the accurate difference between "godliness" and "fearing of God"?
Can a man be godly and fearing of God in the same time?
Thus, what about Acts 10:2, 1 Timothy 3:16, Luke 1:50, John 9:31 in English translations and original Greek manuscripts.
Acts 10:2 (ASV):
- a devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, who gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always.
Acts 10:2 (GNT):
- εὐσεβὴς καὶ φοβούμενος τὸν Θεὸν σὺν παντὶ τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ, ποιῶν τε ἐλεημοσύνας πολλὰς τῷ λαῷ καὶ δεόμενος τοῦ Θεοῦ διὰ παντός,
Why words from the same root in original Greek text are translated to English in words that are not from the same root? I mean: devout, worshipper and godly as translations to Greek root σεβη. Look KJV and GNT in Acts 10:2; 1 Timothy 3:16; Luke 1:50 and John 9:31.
