God Is Dead


“What is this so-called death of God? It is in fact the death of certain vital possibilities in us. It is the death of spiritual courage which, in spite of all the denials and protestations of commonplace thinking, dares to commit itself irrevocably to belief in a divine principle of life.” – Thomas Merton


The way we think about anything tends to reflect the way we think about everything. If the divine principle within us dies we tend to project this onto reality. This is tragic. The death of divinity signals the death of humanity. What becomes of one soon becomes of the other. If you are alive it is not too late to think about this and correct it. The consequences of not doing so are considerable. We should have learned this by now.
