The oft quoted Nietzche is mistaken. He didn't mean it the way it has been taken. I offer as evidence what he acutally said:
God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we, murderers of all murderers, console ourselves? That which was the holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet possessed has bled to death under our knives. Who will wipe this blood off us? With what water could we purify ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we need to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we not ourselves become gods simply to be worthy of it? - Nietzsche
If any man of the last two hundred years was tapped by God, and knew it, it was Nietzche. What he said, and I take him at his word, was that the old image of God was no longer sustainable. And man, the usurper, must take on some of the power that heretofore was projected.
He's very difficult, but I think he went mad trying to listen to this new image. And we, a little less callow, if as naive, must take up his struggle.
Perhaps more appropo of Good Friday, rather than the resurrection, but ours, not God's, nonetheless.
