The individual who possesses a perfect sense of Love is unafraid. The Apostle John indicated this when he wrote (I John 4:18), "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear."

Mortal mind, so called, claims that fear is primal and that the first state of false material consciousness to be found in the newborn babe is that of fear. It is not so with the offspring of Spirit. The child of God has never known fear. Within the kingdom of God, the consciousness of divine Love, there is nothing of which to be afraid. The remedy for fear is to be found not in a merely human sense of love, but in the understanding of divine Love, pure, perfect, impersonal, and spiritual. Mortals who believe they live in a world of matter regard fear as a common companion. Material sense points to dangers in every direction and expects penalty or punishment at every turn. We are freed from fear in proportion to our acceptance of the spiritual nature of existence and its immunity from harm or discord.
