Fear--Lie

There are opposites to, solutions to, and preventions from fear.

I mentioned that fear is based on a lie or lies. The devil is the father of all lies. A liar always says that he is telling the truth. We believe him, not realizing that this lie is a temptation from the evil one. We take the temptation as true and end up in fear. Because we thought it was true does not keep our fear from being sin. We must confess it and forsake it. It is a sinful response to a temptation just like every other sin.
