It’s interesting to me how much we, as a society, fear. Here we are living in the greatest comfort that man has ever ejoyed, with the longest life expectancy and the greatest ability to fight diseases, and yet we live in a constant state of fear. Just the other day on television I saw a show listing the top 10 ways that our world will come to an end. Our politicians gain more and more power by playing off of our fears. And the American Christian is not amune to fear — he fears being “left behind”.
