An interdenominational Christian group aimed towards those of faith who partake in (sub)cultures such as Dark Wave, Punk, Goth, Soft Goth, Emo, Scene, Metal, Rock, Industrial, Grunge, Lolita, Straight Edge, and the like...The-Scarlet-Chapel is for men and women of similar taste and belief in Christ to use their abilities and speak out against the grain of stereotypical expectations, and have lots of fun doing so. Best thing is, they would also be glorifying God in a brand new light. ❤

:emailsend: HOW TO JOIN US

In order to become a member of the Chapel, ALL APPLICANTS for membership MUST AGREE & ABIDE at least to the statement of faith, which can be found below:


"I have repented my sinful ways and have accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, the Son of God in the flesh, who has died & risen for me to be with Him in eternal life."


"Excuse me, but isn't this a sort of dark Christian group? Isn't that sort of...weird?"
Depends on why you think it's weird. As far as definitions go, anyone can be dark, regardless of gender, belief, and/or background. There is also no biblical law that says you need to have a certain taste or personality in order to be a Christian: they will bear fruit of the Holy Spirit, regardless of taste and preference. The Lord wants us to come and worship him as we are:


:deviation: Dark Art is anything that is emotional, unsettling, serious, or dark in both context and in the type of picture/text. It is not just horror, macabre, expressing of depression or mutilation.
This type of art, whether digital, traditional or photography, etc., is encouraged in this group while maintaining a Christ centered &/or biblical message.

:bulletred: Please make sure your work is "obviously" Christ Centered or Biblically based. Be specific in the art, words or description. Leave no room for guessing.

:bulletred: No pornographic, nude imagery, sexual, and/or inappropriate representation.

:bulletred: No inappropriate gore and/or self-harming pics or works.

:bulletred: No art indicating harassment towards other deviants.

:bulletred: No art that undermines sin. You can make art about a sin or the topic of sin, but as Christians we should do our best to avoid indulging in them in a way that makes them look “ok”.

:bulletred: Please submit your works into the appropriate folders!
- Featured (submit all works that are not semi-dark or literature here)
- Semi-Dark (artworks that are not-so-dark as the rest of the arts in the gallery)
- Literature (poems, stories, and pieces deserve their own section)

NOTE: If you wish to join or if you are a member who wishes to participate, we require we practice what we preach. If we agree to these tenants, we must live them as well. Do not feel rejected, when you decide to submit anything contrary to Scriptures or that promotes sin, regardless of what society says about it. The Word of God is not up for social change. Membership requirements may be changed without notice.

Are non-Christians (I'm an eclectic pagan, former Christian) allowed to join? I would like to, many of my closest friends are Christians (i attended a private Christian school for six years and that is why ^^), and I surprisingly still enjoy discussing Christian theology with them and Christians I meet online- not arguing or going against it as a pagan, but just talking about it because it is a topic I enjoy. I am very well-versed in core doctrine, church history, and apologetics (defense of the Christian faith through logical arguments based on both biblical and extra-biblical proofs). ^-^

My new beliefs, though, actually permit me to still help others in their various spiritual paths, for I believe the Goddess (to say a pagan worships Satan is to say an atheist worships God btw- from a logical standpoint) is pleased if we feel fulfilled with our path (and cause not harm to others!), and thus I still help people who struggle with the Christian faith from time to time in order that they might find more fulfillment from that spiritual path (since I am a former Christian and am intellectually prepared to help in such ways). 

I was actually just witnessing to someone the other day. I hope that YHWH blesses her... poor dear, the stuff she had been through. I only pray that her faith grows and that your God brings her the comfort she needs within her soul. Heart

Regardless, blessed be, everyone, and I hope you might allow me to join and meet some of you if you're reading this comment.

I'm really interested in joining your group, but I was wondering if you publish gory pictures. I'm just easily disturbed by gore is all. It's nothing about me being a Christian; it's just the way I am. Shrug 

I read the rules but I just wanted to make sure before I joined. :)

I'm not sure I can submit this to the gallery because it's not Christ-centered, but I am a member of the group and I figured that those in this group who are sXe like me would appreciate it.

actually, yes you can, for example miracles, and the very existence of this world is proof that there's at least a omnipotent being out there.

Has a miracle ever been documented? If so, when, where and how was it documented and can you repeat the results?

This is so awesome I found a group that has people like me dark and gothic but still strong in faith of Christ!
