Trite Slogans will not Do - Colson on the Dark Night of the Soul

Chuck Colson writes a short post on how many of evangelicalism optimisms are misplaced in a world of suffering. Colson would like to know that many younger believers have punted long ago on "the perfect life" this side of eternity. This cursed world is cursed, and dark. It hurts - this generation knows this well. Oh, that only we would find shelter under the wing of God who has cursed this world because of our sin. In Him we find freedom from our depravity and hope in every darkness. For after the last of the tears have fallen - redemption of all things will come. It will not be winter forever - the promised resurrection awaits. Link My Soul's Dark Night - Christianity Today Magazine
