n the beginning was the word. What the KJV translates “word,” is logos. Logos is the divine reason implicit in the cosmos, ordering it and giving it form and meaning. This WORD is also described in John as “light and life.” This WORD was before anything made was made. This WORD was God and was in the beginning with God. John brings us back to the beginning, before what scientists call the “Big Bang,” for their lack of a better explanation. John starts with the Logos: the Plan which was before man. Reason, order, and meaning are the opposite of Nihilism, and existentialism, which attempt to explain a world of chaos, nothingness, and darkness. Nihilism was popularized by Nietzsche.
Nietzsche saw the idea of absolute morality (as found in Christianity and Judaism as the will and way of God) to be false values which lead to disappointment and despair (because they are unobtainable). He believed that belief in extremes always cause the philosophical pendulum to swing to the complete opposite direction, rather that modulate to some compromise and middle position. (thus Wokism).

Disappointment led to Nihilism.  Nietzsche did not see Nihilism as a good, but rather a bad result after concluding that there is no God, or as he expressed it “God is dead,” (let’s move on to something better, he said. Something higher than good and evil). He wrote “Will to Power,” where will is the driving force of life, and man is either master of slave to the “will” or both.   In a world without God, man rushes to find some other moral ideal or meaning. Nietzsche believed in the “survival of the fittest,” and that was not the many, but the few, the few who had the “strength of will.” Nietzsche   saw the need to save civilization by nurturing the strong and removing the weak. So, from the ashes (of atheism) arose Nazism, the idea of the superiority of the Aryen race and ultimately antisemitism, and the Holocaust.

Wokism is a continuation in the struggle and search for meaning in a world without God.  It is no road to heaven, but another dead end and cul-de-sac. As the ideas of other absolutes (like gender, the nuclear family, and marriage) crumble along with civilization right before our eyes, our hope is in the WORD who became flesh, in order to save us from ourselves and show us how to live, and how to die, and how to live with him forever.  -id
