Fear of the Unknown June 28, 2016

Many commercials offer quick solutions to stress, urging buyers to ’take a pill’, ‘go on a vacation’, ‘buy a car.’ But according Howard Bracco, a psychologist with the Kentucky Department of Mental Health, “Life isn’t really that way at all.” Bracco concludes, “Fear of the unknown is the basis for most stress.” He’s right, and the greatest fear of all is the fear of death. Many are in denial and convince themselves that there is no God, no after life, while nagging suspicions that they are wrong persist. But we can know for sure where we are going after death. Jesus promised, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in me shall never die.” Then to illustrate His power over death, He raised Lazarus from the dead.
