“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment.  He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”  It’s not a sin to be afraid, but it is a sin to let your fear control you and hinder you from obeying God.  Push your fear out of your mind, because the torment is the mental fight of “what if?”, and the reality is usually not as bad as what your fear wants you to believe.  If you want to be perfect, mature, complete in love, remember that God is love.  Let Him take control of you and be your strength.

He he!  You mustn’t distract us, Chris.  Why don’t you ask the next question since you are so eager to be involved, he he!
