Labyrinth of Existence

July 8, 2019

Length 10:40

Friedrich Nietzsche was a philosopher who once said: “Whoever looks into himself as into vast space and carries galaxies in himself, also knows how irregular all galaxies are; they lead into the chaos and labyrinth of existence.” Nietzsche is a sort of mouthpiece for atheists, because he could put into words the way so many people feel today. When he looked into his heart, he saw nothing but bottomless chaos and meaningless labyrinth. That is indeed what we find in our hearts when they are void of Jesus Christ. This is the land of Nod, and Jesus is the door to freedom.
