Meaninglessness

It makes no sense to call reality incoherent . . . any more than it does to probe for a pattern of meaning, unless some norm of coherency exists by which all is to be judged. The Logos remains the unacknowledged presupposition of all critical judgment; if man is man, he can be so only in relation to the Logos who lights every man. Man’s individual resignation to meaninglessness implies a descent to personal nothingness, and involves the self’s inner destruction in a living death amid unrelieved hopelessness. The repudiation of logos through alienation from the Logos turns life solitary and sour, for it empties all imaginable meaning into skepticism and self-deception.

- Carl F. H. Henry, God, Revelation and Authority, volume 3. p. 201.
