Correct my line of thinking...

fear = weakness, therefore emotions=weakness, therefore fear+emotions=bad? or just a REALLY weak person.

Fear is a very handy survival instinct. Without fear we'd all be running about doing incredibly stupid, dangerous things. Fear makes most of us try to escape danger rather than confronting it. Fear is not bad unless we allow it to cripple us into total inaction.
Fear is not a weakness.
Without emotions we'd be machines or primitive animals. Emotions make us human. Emotions are not a weaknes and its sad you think so. Even if fear WAS a weakness i dont see how you extrapolate that all other emotions are a weakness. I dont see the parallel.
A person who lacks emotion or/and fear is a sociopath and very scary. We should ALL be afraid of sociopaths.

Fear can be a very healthy emotion, very self-preserving. It's what you DO with fear. Without fear you can't have courage... Emotions are God-given, and they tell us a lot about what's going on. If you push down one emotion all the time, then the others will go down too. Example: If you are sad, and refuse to feel it and push it down, if you do that a lot, then all your other emotions, even "good" ones, will be pushed down too, and you'll end up like a robot. That's not attractive to anyone...

Fear= scared of the things that can kill us, scared of death itself.-Not being scared of death is a weakness as we would be doing crazy things.
Emotions= much more than fear, but love and happiness that overcome such fears.
Both good.

Fear can keep you alive, so it's not always a bad thing. Fear is only bad when it prevents from living a normal life. That's the same for every emotion.

Completely disagree. Fear has actually been proven to release adrenaline increasing strength and heightening senses. Emotions help our bodies cope with situations throughout life. I think it's unhealthy to try and stifle these emotions. Our bodies are made to use them.

Your line of thinking is flawed from your first equation, because fear does NOT equal weakness. Fear is an inborn adaptive reflex that has enabled humans to survive, by ensuring an appropriate response to a dangerous situation.

well, being afraid of man or things in this world just means that person has a veil of misunderstanding over their logic.
But the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. This person has an open understanding, lead by wisdom.
