Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)
Nietzsche was a 19th century philosopher author, and Atheist. He suffered from mental health issues for much of his adult life. The official cause of his death was listed as pneumonia. But he had suffered from debilitating migraines most of his adult life. There has been a general consensus, since the early 1950s, that it was untreated syphilis that caused most of his mental health issues. In other words, years before his death, he could very well have been totally insane. After reading thru his writings, thru the prism of 'Common Sense', much of it is nonsensical, makes absolutely no sense. But it does explain many of the problems that plague our Country. Example, "There are no facts, only interpretations."
Example, a man says he is a woman, science be damned, he is a woman. The people saying he is a woman are also the ones telling us to follow the Science on other issues, the science they use on those issues makes no sense either.
Man is the cruelest animal. Friedrich Nietzsche
Looking at history, Nietzsche was right. In the 20th century, as man heeded his advice and started believing, as he had written in his book 'God is Dead', and there was no eternal judgement awaiting in the afterlife, we saw the rise of despots like Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler, and many others throughout the past century, who did that which was right in there own own eyes. Succumbing to the evil in there hearts, are responsible for the deaths of over 100,000,000 people in the past century.
3 ways of doing things; Your way, my way, and the correct way.
According to Nietzsche, there is no correct way of doing anything. Basically he is saying if it feels good, do it. Don't think about the consequences, just do it. I am sure that the NAZI's felt good killing all the people they did in their Concentration Camps. What about the Gulags of Russia? How many people have died in those? We may never get an answer to these questions. Atheism says that the strong have the right to rule over the weak. Unfortunately, their are those in the United States who think we should also go down this road as well.
I would agree with the Bible
The reason that the world views Nietzsche as a great philosopher is because it agrees with him, 'There is no God'. Therefore, it does not see the foolishness of his arguments. The problems we face cannot be fixed by getting the right party elected, and in control of our Government, Christianity is not a Religion, as the world defines it. True Christianity is about a relationship with God, because of what His Son, Jesus did on the Cross, He died on the Cross for our sins, was buried, and on the third day was raised from the dead so that we could enter into that relationship and commune with the through the Holy Spirit. According to Jesus, there is only one Sin that the Father cannot forgive, that sin is rejection of the Holy Spirit. the Spirit of God will convict the sinner, not because God hates, but to let you know how much He loves you, and longs for a relationship with His creation, You!!! We are created in the image of God, to have a relationship with God. Jesus died on the Cross to restore that relationship.
How to receive Salvation.
The salvation of God is very easy to receive. The above callout says it all, 1 declare with you mouth that 'Jesus is Lord' 2 believe with your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved. The sins of the World were nailed to the Cross with Jesus. That includes my sins, and yours. Salvation is yours, all you have to do is accept it.
