Why do people like a good scare? Horror films, Haunted Houses? I found this description of a ride at Alton Towers – ‘Oblivion beckons you to face your fears, and as you’re held, overhanging the edge of the world’s first vertical drop rollercoaster, you get a moment to savour what is to come. Prepare yourself – the drop into Oblivion is imminent’. Science tells us that after a good scare there is a sense of relief, and elation.Self-scaring is like self-medicating it is a great natural high a powerful chemical punch endorphins dopemeine and adrenaline making one feel euphoric, primal, powerful. Psychologically it make one feel good. The positive feelings after a good scare are way stronger than the negative feelings of being scared. One of the major messages from the bible is don’t let fear stop you becoming who you are meant to be in Christ, and now science is telling us that as we face our fear, chemicals in our bodies make you feel good. Invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
