Lyric discussion by A Can of SPAM 

Everyone who tries to find a ratrional meaning or system of life will ultimately fail and will live in despair, the "sickness unto death." Only Christian love can save humanity from itself, Dosteovsky says, but such love cannot be understood by humans. One thing this song could be about, just for the sake of argument, is the suspension of the ethical for the religious, to put it in Kierkegaard's terms. When Abraham led his son Isacc up to the mount to be sacrificed, he did something totally unethical and yet true to God, for God told him to do it. Creed could be talking about forsaking others and their views for a personal relationship with God. The only thing about this I don't like is the note of self-righteousness here. it seems that he pictures himself far above humanity, "above all others", but it is written, "There is none righteous, no, not one" (Romans 3:10), and "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23). Bring yourself back down to earth and follow Jesus' example here.
