Nietzsche Philosophy: In? Never? Amazing? Wicked? Beware?
3 Simple Reasons Shatter It
Nietzsche Philosophy: “The things that you think you know, you don’t know.” Frederick Nietzsche challenged accepted truths and garnered a large following. You may know this Nietzsche quote as well as the other popular Nietzsche God is dead statement.
Inherent in the Nietzsche quote that starts this article, he rejects the existence of absolute truth and there is no objective standard by which to determine truth.
This Nietzsche philosophy describes our culture today. No distinction between truth claims exists. Everyone’s truths have equal value.
Common belief says, “It all depends on how you grew up and the society in which you live. One forms truth in one way and others in a different way. They all exist together.
Just another way to phrase the Nietzsche philosophy: “The things that you think you know, you don’t know.”
Today, this Nietzsche philosophy governs the spiritual lives of professing Christians as well as unbelievers. It affects the Christian Church’s:
- attempts to engage the culture;
- teaching materials;
- small group Bible studies and their leadership models; and
- sermon content by preachers.

He has done it. And he has done it for all time. The perfecting of his people is complete and it is complete forever.
Does this mean that Christians don’t sin? Don’t get sick? Don’t make mathematical errors in school? That we are already perfect in our behavior and attitudes?”

Is the Handwriting on the Wall for America?
By Franklin Graham
When we began our Decision America Tour on a bitterly cold January day in Des Moines, Iowa, I didn’t know exactly what to expect as we kicked off a nine-month tour of all 50 state capitals.
I wasn’t sure how many people would be able to come to an outdoor prayer rally in the middle of the workday. I wondered how the call to pray, vote and engage in the political process would be received across the nation.

At every stop, thousands upon thousands have turned out at midday to stand for an hour and call on God to heal our nation. In spitting snow, shivering cold and intense heat, people have stood shoulder to shoulder on Capitol grounds and steps to worship God, confess their sins and intercede for America.
