WHY DO WE LIVE IN FEAR?

From the August 1893 issue of The Christian Science Journal


What would our lives be if we were absolutely free from fear, fear for ourselves, and what is worse still, for all of us who are not wholly selfish, fear for those dearest to us? Are we fully conscious how utterly we are under subjection to this yoke of bondage, this law of fear? Not till we apprehend the glorious Truth as set forth in Christian Science do we realize that this heavy burden can be lifted, that it is not necessary for us to be the abject slaves of a supposed power, a dreaded, though unseen, tyrant who robs us of all sense of rest and freedom. We have most of us doubtless been more or less readers of the Bible.
