This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

The fate of the modern heretic

You will not be threatened with a heretic’s death, nor undergo a trial by fire. God is dead in your era, and so heresy is an anachronism for you, and so is religious truth. Do not mistake me, you will be burned for any convictions you hold, but it will be over the slow, omnipresent fire of cultural complacence and spiritual aridity. The clean air of doctrine will never enter your lungs. The modern martyr always dies by prolonged suffocation.
