Fear. It’s everywhere. It’s one of the ways the news media, advertisers and politicians get our attention. As the upcoming election approaches, the shrill scream of certain doom reaches a fevered frenzy. It’s profitable for them. It’s disconcerting for the rest of us.
“Do not call conspiracy everything that these people call conspiracy; do not fear what they fear, and do not dread it. The Lord Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy,
he is the one you are to fear, he is the one you are to dread, and he will be a sanctuary. . . ” Isaiah 8:12-14
