Are You Afraid of the Dark? (INFOGRAPHIC)

text size A A A

The following infographic asks the question: "Why are we afraid of the dark?"

Darkness and light are recurring themes / imagery appearing in the Bible. In Ephesians 5:11 we read, "Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them." John 3:19 is another verse about light and darkness: "This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil."

Fear is also a common theme in scripture. Isaiah 41:10 is just one of many verses mentioning fear: "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."

This infographic by Online Clock reports that "5% of adults say they are afraid of the dark." Are you afraid?
