Why is it important not to feel fear?

We should not fear, because if we will realize that a negative connotation is attached to the word fear and cannot co-exist in the heart of a person who professes to be a Christian. We do not believe in the power and providence of God so fear is the result. Many physical and emotional problems as well are rooted in fear. Ulcers, headaches, sleeplessness, fatigue or loss of appetite are common symptoms of fear. A panic attack is a sudden surge of fear that is often accompanied by a pounding heart, shortness of breath, dizziness, sweaty palms and other unpleasant physical symptoms. Fear has a negative affect on every aspect of our lives. We should not fear, because God is with us

Unfortunately we are all just human...Christian or not, we all have fears to a certain extent. We even have them subconsciously. Believing in God and trusting Him helps to relieve any major fears that we may have. But you realize that, He does talk about 'fear of the Lord' in the Bible. We should have a healthy fear of God; fear that we won't be with Him when we die; helps us to maintain a good relationship with Him.

I think its natural for people to fear about something. This emanates from our being limited as humans. We fear of the unknown of the future and of things that we do not have control of. I think it is not bad to feel afraid as long as your fear is coupled with faith and hope that there is a Supreme being that will never abandon us and will walk us through any uncertainty that will come our way.

like what you said, if we have GOD we need not fear. But humanity has lapses. fear somehow still creep into our minds and souls, because we become unfaithful to GOD. It is when we let go of GOD for a second that Fear triumphs over us. We can always feel fear but as christians we should know how to fight it and suppress it. The answer really is simple, call unto GOD and HE will erase away all your fears.

To stop a human from doing something. The most fear of human I think will be their own race believe, that fear you from doing something bad. Don't talk about religion, let's just go for Chinese, they have too much of the so-called belief and too less they enjoy their life.
