    God has not given us a spirit of fear.

    Dear Sarah Taylor, thank you for your service and openness about your life on the air yet your story you recounted this morning about a hike you took with a date to a waterfall when you were in college was disturbing. You expressed what you feared, that your date was a likely rapist or worse even though he did no such thing. I understand that he apparently lied about being a college student and that apparent lie was a sin. That lie does not make him a probable rapist. We all sin and if we ask the Lord to forgive us, we are forgiven. Did the man you ended up marrying, Joel, never sin?

    Your spirit of fear was not from the Lord yet from Satin. The Bible teaches us not to fear. Granted, it is good to make wise decisions when dating and in all relationships but your story only compounds the fear women already have that all men dangerous and are to be feared. Instead, how about teaching to trust in the Lord and love others?

    For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
    2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)

    So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
    Isaiah 41:10 (NIV)
