Everyone is scared.

We think people attack us for our beliefs, our lifestyles, or just for who we are because they’re terrible people.

In reality…they’re just scared.
Just like you and me.

They are afraid of what scares all of us;
what MIGHT happen if…

They are afraid of what the future could hold.
What God might think, say, or do as a result of their beliefs, lifestyles, and identity.

So, they do what ALL humans (yes, you and me included) do when they are scared

something stupid.

They try to control what they cannot.
To structure, order, and maintain certainty in anyway possible

Like kicking you out of their church or their lives
Like declaring certain people saved and others damned.
Like making you out to be the bad guy.

Fear makes us do stupid things, friends.
Things like making an enemy of the other.

Be sure you aren’t doing the same.

Don’t let fear run your life.


1 John 4:18
