After God's "Funeral"

If God is dead, as Nietzsche proclaimed, then someone or something has to take His place. Nature abhors a vacuum, especially in spiritual matters. We all will worship and serve something or someone - it's how we're wired.

Pleasure, money, power, sex, success, intelligence, science and a host of other things rush in to fill the void. Probably the most popular substitute for God is ourselves. When God is removed from His throne, so to speak, we're quick to take His place.

The absence of the true and living God doesn't mean nothing remains, it means something (or someone) does that is decidely not-God.
