The Bible doesn't mention stress (though it is packed with woo), and that's no surprise.
The term "stress" was first popularized as a psychological catch-all in the 1950s, that little omission does not prevent purveyors of Christian woo — like many another peddler of anti-stress panaceas — from pontificating on this ill-defined topic.
