The truth is there is really no Dark Side to Christianity. If it is uncompassionate, unkind, bigoted, hateful, hypocritical, selfish, prideful or ignoble it is simply not Christian. To call it so is to dress a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Many people don't fear a hell after this life and that's because hell is on this earth, in this life. In this life there are many forms of hell that people walk through, sometimes for a day, sometimes for years, sometimes it doesn't end. The kind of hell that doesn't burn your skin; but burns your soul. The kind of hell that people can't see; but the flames lap at your spirit. Heaven is a place on earth, too! It's where you feel freedom, where you're not afraid. No more chains. And you hear your soul laughing.
