“At no point does the Christian mind come into more violent collision with the secular mind than in its insistence on humility with all the weakness it entails. The wisdom of the world values power, not humility. We have drunk in more of the power philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche than we realize. Nietsche dreamed of the rise of a daring ruler-race — tough, masculine, and oppressive. Nietzsche worshiped power; he despised Jesus for his weakness. The ideal of Niezsche was the Übermensch, the superman; but the ideal of Jesus was the little child. There is no possibility of compromise between these two images; we are obliged to choose.”
– John Stott, Basic Christian Leadership, p. 37-38.
