Do Words Have Meaning Anymore?

That God should play the tyrant over man is the dismal story of unrelieved oppression; that man should play the tyrant over man is the usual dreary record of human futility; but that man should play the tyrant over God and find Him a better man than himself is an astonishing drama indeed.  Now, we may call that doctrine exhilarating or we may call it devastating, we may call it revelation or we may call it rubbish, but if we call it dull, then words have no meaning at all.

Dorothy Sayers
