Paul Williams, The Nihilist

In close proximity to Dr Rogers is a man who has slipped lower than humans can imagine. Perhaps the lowest level of sinfulness would be Nihilism. A doctrine that traditional values are unfounded and that existence is senseless and useless. Rom 1:28 He considered the life of his own son so insignificant as to be destroyed for the sake of destruction. A death would have been preferable to the ordeal he put him through. Jesus' suggestion to a man considering doing this to his son was suicide. He even described an act so certain to absolutely destroy oneself. Cast yourself into the sea with a millstone tied around your neck. Some sinful situations, because of the hardness of men's hearts, can't be resolved on earth they are resolved in heaven. I John 5:16; Heb. 10:26

Nihilism drove Friedrich Nietzsche crazy in his dying days. The philosophy he popularized destroyed his soul and warped his mind to insanity. But Paul Williams advocating the same philosophy in practice heard a gospel that helped him maintain a balance between insanity and salvation. He could sodomize his son Saturday night and teach Sunday School the next day!

The semi-pelagian beliefs of Adrian Rogers afforded Paul Williams the meaning that otherwise drove Friedrich Nietzsche crazy. This is a sad commentary to fundamental Christianity. Rather than reveal the secrets of his heart and have Paul Williams fall to his knees and confess "of a truth I perceive that indeed God is with you." Paul Williams' heart was cauterized with the "love worth finding."
