Headlines IconThis week, we’re stepping away from the world of audio books to look at the timeless word of spiritual ideas.  Let me start with a question: Are you afraid?  Do you look at the headlines or hear the stories on TV news and quake from fear?  How do you cope with that fear?

Some people want to spend a lot of time and money and effort in extreme preparation.  So, we have shows on TV, like “Doomsday Preppers” from National Geograhic.  “A show dedicated to ordinary Americans who are preparing for the end of the world as we know it.”  Some people may be paralyzed by fear.  Others may just put it out of their minds.

What should be a Christian’s response to the headlines and news stories we see and hear?  Should we be preppers?  Or hide from it?  Or ignore it?  Do we realize that fear is Satan’s greatest weapon among people of faith?

This week, I want to share a lesson from the preacher at my congregation, Clear Creek Church of Christ, as he discusses what God’s Word has to say about times like these.
