Crime: heal the fear

Despite reports that crime is increasing, we can experience an unshakable freedom from danger through understanding the dominion and protection that come from reliance on God, as taught in Christian Science.

One needs to heal the fear of evil, not live with it. Passive thinking about the situation is not enough. As Peter tells us in the Bible, "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour." I Pet. 5:8. By telling us to be vigilant, Peter didn't really have in mind the type of vigilance that finds security in a gun. We need to see through this fear of evil and remove its so-called power and imaginary ability to control us.
