This blog post is a great example of the crossroads between horror and Christian writing. Like this author, I believe the evangelical church has done the Bible a disservice by turning the biblical stories into precious moments figures to sit on a dresser and be admired. The cross is the most horrifying story in the history of the world. Not only because it was done to an innocent man, but because in its purest sense, the cross was one of the worst modes of death ever conceived by a human. You can not remove the body horror from the scripture.
In my opinion, the most devious horror writer is no match for the Gospel of Mark. Every sub-genre of horror was lifted from Mark's story of a Jesus spoke to demons, tore evil spirits from men's bodies, tortured, murdered, and resurrected.
Horror as a genre doesn't have to be void of meaning, and full of senseless acts of blood-letting. It can be a dark prism with which to view the temporal world and the eternal world and discover their meet-point.
