ALL IS SPIRITUAL:

UTTERLY MISTAKEN:

"Those who hold the material-energy, chance concept of reality,...not only do not know the truth of the final reality, God, they do not know who Man is...since their concept of Man is mistaken, their concept of society and of law is mistaken, and they have no sufficient base for either society or law."

PROPHETIC: A TERRORIST TOOL?:

...speaking of civil disobedience is frightening...That is, with the prevalence of Marxist thinking--and especially with the attempted synthesis of Marxism and Christianity in certain forms...what we are saying could become a Marxist and terrorist tool to bring anarchy. Or in a similar vein, it could become a tool to impose by force the humanist world view resulting in the loss of humanness and in some form of authoritarianism.

RULED BY TYRANTS:

"William Penn (1644-1718) had expressed ... "If we are not governed by God, then we will be ruled by tyrants." This consensus was as natural as breathing in the United States at that time. We must not forget that many of those who came to America from Europe came for religious purposes. As they arrived, most of them established their own individual civil governments based upon the Bible. It is, therefore, totally foreign to the basic nature of America at the time of the writing of the Constitution to argue a separation doctrine that implies a secular state."

SHALL WE BE SWEPT ALONG?:

"...are we Christians going to be merely swept along with the trends--our own moral values becoming increasingly befuddled, our own apathy reflecting the apathy of the world around us, our own inactivity sharing the inertia of the masses around us, our own leadership becoming soft?"

LEGITIMATE FORCE:

"In a fallen world, force in some form will always be necessary. We must not forget that every presently existing government uses and must use force in order to exist. Two principles, however, must always be observed. First, there must be a legitimate basis and a legitimate exercise of force. Second, any overreaction crosses the line from force to violence. And unmitigated violence can never be justified."

I SWEAR TO TELL THE TRUTH, SO HELP ME...MAN?:

"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."

FORGOTTEN FREEDOMS:

"We have forgotten why we have a high view of life, and why we have a positive balance between form and freedom in government, and the fact that we have such tremendous freedoms without these freedoms leading to chaos."

A TOTALLY HUMANISTIC CULTURE:

"...we are indeed very, very far down the road toward a totally humanistic culture. At this moment we are in a humanistic culture, but we are happily not in a totally humanistic culture. But what we must realize is that the drift has been all in this direction."

FORSAKEN DUTY:

"Most fundamentally, our culture, society, government, and law are in the condition they are in, not because of a conspiracy, but because the church has forsaken its duty to be the salt of the culture."

SCHAEFFER ON JOHN KNOX:

"Knox is rightly thought of as a radical reformer. There is, however, an important distinction to keep in mind concerning him. Throughout his ministry, Knox appealed for moderation and compromise whenever truly fundamental issues were not at stake."
