    Why worry if God loves you if you love God. Yes, worry if you hate righteousness, hate God's severity for you will be cut off like a branch that yields no fruit and cast into the fire. All of God's ways are righteous. He created you're Soul. It is His. He can and will destroy the phoney, pretenders who presumptuously claim Salvation. Don't you dare. It is God's to give only if you are worthy
