Friedrich Nietzsche on Christianity - Dictionary of Arguments

Ries II 90/91
Christianity/Antichrist/Nietzsche: a great instinct of revenge, to which no remedy is poisonous, secret, underground, small enough. It is connected with the figure of Paul, not with Jesus. Denial of life. The whole word is a misunderstanding. There was only one Christian, and he died on the cross. The gospel died on the cross.
Ries II 93
Christianity/Religion/Ecce homo/Nietzsche:"Dionysus against the Crucified".
Ries II 92
Paul/Antichrist/Nietzsche: falsification, countertype to the "happy ambassador", vision of hatred. Instead of bliss, punishment, final judgment and the deification of nothing take the place.
Jesus/Antichrist/Nietzsche: "this holy anarchist". He's more of an idiot than a hero.
Antichrist/Nietzsche: Letter 1883: "I am the Antichrist".
Danto III 222
Christianity/Nietzsche: According to Nietzsche, Christianity prevents the ascent to a higher form of existence.
Danto III 221
Religion/Tradition/Danto: many religions claim that we stand in front of our God as an offspring in front of their Father, claiming that we owe everything we have or are to the divine producer.
>Religious belief, >Religious belief/Nietzsche.
Danto III 222
Nietzsche: In the birth of the tragedy(1), Nietzsche develops the idea that the Greek Olympus was invented to alleviate suffering, not to contribute to it in the way that the Christian concept of God has done in the face of human suffering - to reinforce man's will to find himself guilty.(2)
Danto: in the concluding, almost apocalyptic tirade of Ecce homo, Christian morality is described as a catastrophe and the Christian concept of God is denounced as poisonous and life-threatening. The résumé is decorated with an "Ecrasez l'infâme!" and put into the formula:"Dionysus against the crucified..."(3)
