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.
If you are in a pit of stress or despair, don’t succumb to defeat. Don’t accept that difficult place as your fate. Even though God has allowed you to be there right now, he never intended for you to live there. Our God is bigger then whatever problem you are facing. The only way to see past the problem is to believe that he has not forgotten or abandoned you and that, at the exact time that he has ordained, he will reach down and pick you up.
