The truth about fear

Most people would say they have been afraid more times than they can count. But since early last year, for many (estimated at nearly forty million adults in the United States), occasional fears have melded into continual anxiety. And though no one wants to be afraid, common theories hold that fear is an inexorable part of life. 

Franklin Roosevelt, President during much of the Great Depression and most of World War II, rallied Americans at the peak of the Depression when he famously said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Christ Jesus, centuries earlier, went much further, showing women and men that they did not have to bow down to fear in any form, for any reason.
