How Do We Overcome Fear?
Fear is often expressed in anxious thought about the body. It is a basic element in disease. It enters into almost every form of trouble the individual may encounter. How do we overcome fear? The Bible says, "Perfect love casteth out fear." I John 4:18; But how do we attain that perfect love, and is there a scientific way to nullify fear? These are some of the questions that demand answers in our daily experience.
More than faith is necessary to overcome fear. One must understand something of the nature of reality. He must come to know the nature of God as infinite Spirit, or divine Principle, and the perfect, harmonious nature of God's law governing His universe and His man. It is only in the context of spiritual understanding that one can successfully destroy fear and rest his confidence on a sure foundation.
Fear is inextricably linked up with the false belief that man is material and that material sense testimony constitutes reality. When we understand that matter is simply false, material mentality and that material conditions are projected states of thought, we can lose our fear of matter and begin to lose our fear of evil and disease. In the healing of disease we are not primarily dealing with material conditions but with states of thought. And it is the understanding of Truth that changes our thinking from a false basis to the true and thus brings us into harmony with God's perfect government.
