Magnificence, Empire, and Power

"God is dead."
- Friedrich Nietzsche, 1882

"Nietzsche is dead."
- God, 1900

Nietzsche's God is dead notion anticipated the popular modern secular creed that would destroy objective truth and value and replace them with a variety of subjective perspectives.

While variety is the slice of life, it is not the meat and potatoes of life: it can keep things interesting, but you don't stay alive consuming it. God alone is the ground of our being; without Him, everything else falls into chaos and insanity.

As the instructive life of the author of the Wahnbriefe demonstrated.

Soli Deo Salvatori nostro, per Jesum Christum Dominum nostrum, gloria et magnificentia, imperium et potestas ante omne sæculum, et nunc, et in omnia sæcula sæculorum. Amen.
