Spinoza: Gods and Kings

Zitat

„The common people understand by God’s power His free will and right over all existing things, which are therefore commonly looked upon as contingent; for they say that God has the power of destroying everything and reducing it to nothing. They very frequently, too, compare God’s power with the power of kings.“ (Second Part, Chap. IX, The Mind of God) #Spinoza #God #king
