Sermon Illustrations

Let me throw a question at you and get some responses from you as I get started. What are you afraid of?

I’m amazed at some of the things people are really afraid of.

There’s things that are more common like…

• Claustrophobia: fear of enclosed spaces.

• Coulrophobia: fear of clowns.

• Ophidiophobia: fear of snakes.

• Dentophobia: fear of dentists.

But there are also hundreds of lesser known phobias that actually affect some people:

• Peladophobia: fear of baldness and bald people.

• Chaetophobia: fear of hairy people.

• Globophobia: fear of balloons.

• Aerophobia: fear of drafts.

• Porphyrophobia: fear of the color purple.

• Levophobia: fear of objects on the left side of the body.

• Dextrophobia: fear of objects on the right side of the body.

• Phobophobia: fear of being afraid.

Today’s message is actually going to center on the subject of

• Atychiphobia: fear of failure.
