Question: I was reading the email about fear, and I believe I have fear. Is this the same as the reference to cowards in the book of Revelation? I believe my fear comes from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, and verbal abuse, which at my age, I've yet to overcome.

Answer: Everyone normal person experiences fear. The issue is whether or not we give in to it and allow it to dominate our lives. The only difference between the courageous person and the coward is that the coward gives in to his fear. Those are the people described in Revelation.
