Criticism of Jesus - Criticism By Source - Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche

Nietzsche has many criticisms of Jesus and Christianity, even going so far as to style himself as The Anti-Christ. In Human, All Too Human, and Twilight of the Idols for example, Nietzsche accuses the Church' and Jesus's teachings as being anti-natural in their treatment of passions, in particularly sexuality; "There it is said, for example, with particular reference to sexuality: "If thy eye offend thee, pluck it out." Fortunately, no Christian acts in accordance with this precept... the Christian who follows that advice and believes he has killed his sensuality is deceiving himself: it lives on in an uncanny vampire form and torments in repulsive disguises."

Famous quotes by friedrich nietzsche:

    ‘All the gods are dead: now we want the superman to live’Mon that great noon, let this be our last will.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Reckoned physiologically, everything ugly weakens and afflicts man. It recalls decay, danger, impotence; he actually suffers a loss of energy in its presence. The effect of the ugly can be measured with a dynamometer. Whenever man feels in any way depressed, he senses the proximity of something ‘ugly.’ His feeling of power, his will to power, his courage, his pride—they decline with the ugly, they increase with the beautiful.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    About what we neither know nor feel precisely while awake—whether we have a good or a bad conscience toward a certain person—our dreams instruct us fully and unambiguously.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Against boredom even the gods struggle in vain.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The people we keep standing in the anteroom of our favor either start fermenting or turn sour.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
