getting out of the pit

I went down to the land whose bars closed upon me forever; yet you brought up my life from the pit, O LORD my God.
Jonah 2:6

Jonah's prayer in chapter 2 is a description of the christian life. God brought us out of the pit.

Everything and everyone else offers you methods of getting out of the pit. That misunderstands how deep the pit is. Christianity says Jesus came down into the pit and lifted you out!
