Fear can only control you if it is your belief you have something to fear (if you believe you are sinful.) Salvation comes with the belief you cannot change what God created sinless. The stories of horror are of the ego’s making (bodies hurting bodies) and have not touched or changed the spirit being God created. It is a question of what we will believe is real and true: What God created or what we have made. Is the world real? Ego thoughts may arise but will only be fearful if you believe they are true.
