“The philosopher who best understood this “liberation” was Nietzsche.
Contrary to modern atheists, who assure us that the death of God need not mean an end to morality, Nietzsche insisted that it did.
As God is the source of the moral law, His death means that the ground has been swept out from under us.
We have become, in a sense, ethically groundless, and there is no more refuge to be taken in appeals to dignity and equality and compassion and all the rest.
What confronts us, if we are honest, is the abyss.” – “What’s So Great About Christianity” by Dinesh D’Souza
Something to think about.
“And anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.” – Revelation 20:15
It doesn’t have to be that way.
“And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Now God’s presence is with people, and he will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them and will be their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death, sadness, crying, or pain, because all the old ways are gone.” – Revelation 21:3-4
