I’ve been thinking about why Christianity may be a hard sell for major depressives. First, happiness and joy are completely alien and abstract concepts. The closest thing they have are euphoria and oblivion (probably the reason for the common chemical dependency problem). Second, Hell is hardly a threat. They already live there. What *really* scares them is more of the same.
So here’s the deal: Heaven to a major depressive is oblivion, while Hell is eternal life. See the problem?
