You know intuitively that fear is bad and you have support for this in scripture. Have you seen bumper stickers saying ‘No Fear’? It is easy to put on a bumper sticker. Do you think that those who do so have been tested so they can speak this from experience? Do you think they understand that it is perfect love that casts out fear? This isn’t something that can be known second hand or by abstraction. My apostles understood this because of their direct experience with perfect love. They proclaimed the gospel without fear even though they knew they were risking their lives and most lost them. Those who are perfected in love, love not their lives to the death.
