Nietzsche has been among my favorites ever since I rediscovered him a couple years ago. One thing I find especially interesting is that while his descriptions of Christian belief don't correspond to the actual beliefs of (virtually) any Christians, his position on what Christianity teaches is arguably a logical consequence of some of the more naive formulations of sin and divine nature (as well as a few of the more sophisticated versions). It brings up the interesting side question of why and how people can believe A and B, which together entail C, yet explicitly deny C when pressed.


When I was reading his thoughts on this I kept thinking that what he was saying was a great critique of the characature christianity that that is expounded in many churches I've spent time with. I think you are right though, if pressed, they would give up on these ideas. (maybe)
