NIETZSCHE AND CHRISTIANS

Friedrich Nietzsche, the philosopher, said of Christians:

"Look at whom they worship. Look at this God whom they worship. How foolish and imbecilic to follow one who died, and then to claim that that death is victory! There is foolishness and there is foolishness. There is madness and there is madness, but to call death victory is the ultimate madness of all. This is a pathetic deity and he is followed by a pathetic people."

Paul says those people who believe like Nietzsche are "perishing."

(From a sermon by Ed Sasnett, Nothing to Add, 6/2/2010)
