“Man cannot live without worshipping something.”
– Fyodor Dostoevsky “We have not, it seems, the power to abstain from worship. Instead, we swallow the sweet poison, substituting lesser gods for God.”
― Philip Yancey “Wherever the people do not believe in something beyond the world, they will worship the world. But, above all, they will worship the strongest thing in the world.”
– G. K. Chesterton “Every person, religious or not, is worshipping something to get their worth.”
– Tim Keller

If God is dead, somebody is going to have to take his place.
It will be megalomania or erotomania, the drive for power
or the drive for pleasure, the clenched fist or the phallus,
Hitler or Hugh Hefner.
No room remains empty for long.
If God is driven out,
the gods come trooping in.
