Is Kelhus a criticism of Jesus/religion? posted 04 August 2007 in Author Q & AIs Kelhus a criticism of Jesus/religion? by Curethan, Didact

Well, lets assume that Kellhus does save Earwa and defeats the Consult....

That could be qualified as a good act, and as it was 'vaugely' prophesised probably makes it a miracle - thus proof of divine intervention. So, have those who 'helped' him really been tricked if that was what they believed?
Dishonest people can be right, honest ones can be wrong.

If people didn't fear being wrong so much, the world would be a nicer place, agreed?

PoN is the first part of Kellhus' larger story and focuses on his early experiences with lesser men. At first they are like dogs to him, creatures to be domesticated and trained, but I expect that we'll see more changes to his character in the series as he lives among them - sorcery isn't the only thing the Dunyain have deliberately 'forgotten'.

Perhaps we will see Kellhus' redemption as the light at the end of the tunnel. view post
