As much as possible, I try to praise God for his marvelous works.
The way I found this website, was through a search for "Christian Goth". Can you believe it? I have a special fondness for Goth or dark music/literature art, as well as a noire
dress aesthetic. I never did goth out in terms of dress, but I do tend to be more attracted to dark colors, even more so than the average NY'er. I'm working on putting color in my wardrobe.
Anyway, I was doing a search and I found the very same question you're asking on this website.
So I began to read, then I read other topics and all this reading and research culminated with me becoming Catholic.
God works in mysterious ways.
Some might say, there is nothing more goth than Catholicism. The Lord's passion is a very dark thing as well as venerating relics
, which is a saying we do think about daily as Catholics, is a goth mantra as well.
I think the danger to goth culture or any subculture is that a lot of the focus is on being different and on getting attention.
I would say that the more I focus on Christ, the less I am interested in making a statement so to speak or identifying as anything than a child of God. It's not about me. It's about him.
Although I still retain a fondness for dark music.
