Nietzsche predicted that the ‘generation that is now coming up’, regrettably, this generation, ‘from cruelty against [itself]’, would ‘sacrifice God himself’, and ‘worship the stone, stupidity, gravity, fate, and nothing.’

Nietzsche was right about sacrificing God, but could not have foreseen that this would lead not just to worshiping ‘the stone, stupidity, gravity, fate and [...]

We are not all “God’s Children”

You’ve heard it said that “We are all God’s children.” This rings flowery and nice.

It’s an insidious lie.

Indeed, God both created and loves – in a way most unfathomable – everyone who ever lived. He wove us together in our mother’s womb and numbered our every hair. But God the Father has only [...]

In Defense of “Fundamentalism”
