The Christian Noob (n00b)

born & raised Catholic, now going to a Presbyterian church & still learning

dark days, salvation

In the book “Political Ideals” by Bertrand Russell (http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/4776), the author pointed out something that we know too well. When we fear, we turn to God.

“In dark days, men need a clear faith and a well-grounded hope; and as the outcome of these, the calm courage which takes no account of hardships by the way. The times through which we are passing have afforded to many of us a confirmation of our faith. We see that the things we had thought evil are really evil, and we know more definitely than we ever did before the directions in which men must move if a better world is to arise on the ruins of the one which is now hurling itself into destruction.”

Of course, most of us only turn to God when we’re in some sort of danger and need to be rescued. We’re just selfish hypocrites.
