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."
