The Fallacy of Fear

The acceptance and expression of fear have long been decried by clear-thinking religionists, poets, and philosophers. Recently some progressive and well-known doctors of medicine have proved by experimentation and observation that certain so-called organic as well as functional diseases have resulted from fear and other human emotions; naturally these doctors advise against fear. But such counsel is futile unless it is based upon and accompanied by an understanding of the Christly method whereby fear is to be combated and conquered.

Human experience reveals that the conquest of fear is attained with nothing other than spiritual understanding, even the understanding which made Christ Jesus the most fearless of all men. That our Master expected others to share in his freedom from fear is evidenced by the fact that he frequently addressed the disciples as well as those who appealed to him for healing with such words as "Fear not," or "Be not afraid."
