Of Nietzsche, Feuerbach, and Dark Nights of the Soul

As Jurgens Moltmann puts it, our faith begins at the exact point where atheists think it must end, in the taste of nothingness, in emptiness, in darkness, and in the complete powerless to imagine God's existence or affectively sense God's presence.  In that emptiness and powerless, God can finally begin to flow into our lives purely, untainted, unaffected by our own needs, expectations, and imaginative constructs.
