CLASSICAL/PRESUPPOSITIONAL DEBATE (LOGICALLY LOST):

"If the unsaved man were completely logical, and so had no point of common contact, we could not reach him for he would have taken his life and so be out of our reach."

CLASSICAL/PRESUPPOSITIONAL DEBATE (ILLOGICAL vs REVELATION):

"The Lord uses this degree of illogical reality the unsaved man has in his false world. The Lord shows some men their bankruptcy as they use a microscope, some as they fall in love, and some as they fear to die. When the bankruptcy is perceived then Christ may be seen as the answer."

CLASSICAL/PRESUPPOSITIONAL DEBATE (LOGICAL CONCLUSIONS):

CLASSICAL/PRESUPPOSITIONAL DEBATE (IRRACTIONALISM vs. CHRISTIANITY):

"As I remember Dr. Van Til's practical approach, it was to show the non-Christian that his world view, en toto, and in all its parts, must logically lead back to full irrationalism and then to show him that the Christian system provides the universal which gives avowed explanation of the universe. It is Christianity or nothing."

THE MEANING OF THE HOLY CATHOLIC CHURCH:

"Of all the phrases of the Apostles' Creed, the one which is most open to misunderstanding is: 'I believe in the holy Catholic Church.' Many Protestants, feeling that in some way this portion of the Apostles' Creed refers to the Roman Catholic Church, are ashamed to repeat it. Let us say, as we begin, that not only does 'the holy Catholic Church' have no reference to Roman Catholicism, but it is the very antithesis of it."

LAWLESS GENERATION:

"A large section of evangelicalism has increasingly accommodated the present world spirit rather than using the Bible to judge it. The spirit of our age demands autonomy, freedom from every law, every absolute, even autonomy against human nature. There are no moral absolutes in this kind of world; everyone does what he wants to do and says what he wants to say."

MARXIST ACCOMMODATION :

"Evangelicalism has accommodated at every crucial point in our culture. I mentioned the distortion of Scripture. We have also confused God's kingdom with socialistic programs. Unjust social structures or capitalism are not the cause of evil in our world. Changing economic structures; setting up some kind of redistribution system¾ will not stop evil. That kind of thinking is Marxist. For evangelicals to adopt such a line of thought is sheer accommodation to the world."

ADDRESSING EVIL:

"..if we intend to stand in the historic stream of Christianity, we must never close our eyes to the wrongs that do exist in our own external world. The reason the secondary blessings of Christianity have followed the preaching of the Cross is that the true preachers of the Cross have always been willing to point out the evils of their own day."

THE BENEFITS OF BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY :

"Bible-believing Christianity, wherever it has gone preaching Christ and Him crucified and raised from the dead and keeping as its primary message justification by faith, has always been followed by certain peripheral and secondary blessings. These blessings have not followed in a day, but they have always come. What are these peripheral blessings--the emancipation of women, the freeing of slaves, the increase of education, and, in general, a rise in the level of civilization, including the material benefits of a high standard of living. There are many others, but the greatest of the peripheral blessings that have followed historic Bible-believing Christianity has always been an increase in individual liberties. Remember, this is not the primary message of Christianity. It is a purely secondary result of the preaching of the cross."

"There are too many who call themselves Bible-believing Christians who are only so because this has been the established position in their youth, not because they are convinced that it is right. They find it rather comfortable to say the old phrases without doing anything about them. Thus, Christianity loses its dynamic power, and dead orthodoxy comes in like a flood."

It is against the prince of this world.

INEVITABLE RESULTS:

"These two world views [Christian and Secular Humanism] stand as totals in complete antithesis to each other in content and also in their natural results --including sociological and governmental results, and specifically including law. It is not that these two world views are different only in how they understand the nature of reality and existence. They also inevitably produce totally different results. The operative word here is inevitably. It is not just that they happen to bring forth different results, but it is absolutely inevitable that they will bring forth different results."

WHERE ARE YOUR INVESTMENTS?:

"When I was growing up in Philadelphia, I would hike every Saturday. To get to the clean air of the country I used to save a couple of miles by tramping through the city dump. I have never forgotten this. It was a place of junk, fire, stench. It has helped me tremendously to think back on that place, because even as a boy I realized that I saw there almost everything people spend their money for. There was their investment ended."

"Even on the basis of Man's finiteness having people swear in court in the name of humanity, as some have advocated, saying something like, 'We pledge our honor before all mankind,' would be insufficient enough. But reduced to the materialistic view of Man, it is even less. Although many nice words may be used, in reality law constituted on this basis can only mean brute force."

SCHAEFFER ON INFLATION?:

"The problem is that though the pendulum may swing from the liberal to the conservative side, if economic well-being is not forthcoming (for example, the control of inflation), having no base for real values, there could easily be another swing to some form of an elite which gave the promise of affluence and personal peace."

HIS SUFFERING:

As He hung upon the cross, having taken upon Himself the sin of those who would trust Him as Savior, God the Father turned from Him. His physical sufferings were great, but were not the greatest part of His suffering.

LOVING COMMUNITY:

"For Schaeffer the reality of the loving community was not something we could organize and create but rather it had to flow from Christ work in and through us."

ON PACIFISM:

"One can understand the pacifism of the 'peaceful churches': they have always taken Christ's command to individuals to turn the other cheek and misguidedly extended it to the state. They ignore the God-given responsibility of the state to protect its people and stand for justice in a fallen world."

SCHAEFFER'S TRUE-TRUTH:

"In a moment when there is a great muddle about what truth is, Schaeffer was crystal clear. He even added the prefix 'true' to truth to convey the force of this, ie., 'true truth.' As he loved to say, 'the final great concept of truth is that Christianity is true to what is there."

CLEAR COMMANDS IGNORED:

"American conservative Christians are not as biblical as they think they are. In support of this claim we need look no further than the fact that, we are clearly commanded always to be ready to make a defense to anyone who asks a reason for the home that is within us (1 Peter 3:15), vast swaths of our adherents think it is somehow unspiritual to obey the biblical commandment."

TWO PRINCIPLES:

"Two biblical principles must be practiced simultaneously, at each step of the way, if we are to be really Bible-believing Christians. One is the principle of the practice of the purity of the visible church. The other is the principle of an observable love among all true Christians."

I DO NOT PRAY FOR JUSTICE:

"I must say, when I pray for my country and our culture, I do not pray for God's justice. I can only plead for His mercy. If we had justice of God, we would not have peace. We would have a situation like Jeremiah's. How dare we pray for justice upon our culture when we have so deliberately turned away from God and His revelation?"

GIVING UP LIBERTY:

"..the majority of what was called the silent majority, who are living on the memory of the practical advantages that Christian culture gave, but without a base for these advantages. Their values are affluence (they are practical materialists) and personal peace at any price. Having no base, no absolutes, most of them will compromise liberty if they are finally forced to choose between their affluence and personal peace on the one hand and giving up a piece of liberty on the other."

CULTURAL SCHIZOPHRENIA:

"...one of the most striking things about the West today is its schizophrenia. Two powerful mythologies vie for attention. One, the Post-Modern, insist that ultimate meaning is impossible:the other, offspring of the Englightenment, that science is sufficient--allegedly because this provides genuine, as over superstitious, knowledge (cue Dawkins and the New Atheist)."

"There are many means for killing men, as men, today. They all operate in the same direction: no truth, no morality. You do not have to go to art galleries or listen to the more sophisticated music to be influenced by their message. The common media of cinema and television will do it effectively for you."
