SOCIOLOGICAL LIFE:

"'sociological law'--that is, law based only on what the majority of society thinks is in its best interests at a given moment--and 'sociological news,' slanted to produce what some person thinks will produce a helpful sociological result. Now arbitrary abortion has opened wide the door at the point of life and death for 'sociological medicine'--not just for the yet unborn but for all human life."

MONUMENTS OF COMPASSION:

"The great dramatic moments of history have left us with monuments and memories of compassion, love, and unselfishness which punctuate the all-too-pervasive malevolence that dominates so much human interaction. That there is any respite from evil is due to some courageous people who, on the basis of personal philosophies, have led campaigns against the ill-treatment and misuse of individuals."

IDEALISTIC MARXISM:

"...we cannot understand idealistic Marxism except as a Christian heresy. Neither the East with its conception of man nor Islam could have produced idealistic communism. Communism has not won its converts by what Stalin did (though I think what he did is a natural outcome to the whole system), but rather by the idealistic promises that were made that it would enhance the dignity of man. Materialism never had a base for this, but it did have a memory of Christianity to build on."

~ Dr. Francis Schaeffer, Whatever Happened to the Human Race? ~ Editor's Note: In our current cultural climate, we are aware of the sensitivity of these sort of words. We at Francis Schaeffer Studies believe that Dr. Schaeffer would both encourage compassion to individuals (as this was part of his ministry) as well as object to destructive philosophies that would seek to tear down American society, such as cultural Marxism. Both are evidenced in his writings.

THE MODERN MYSTIC:

"The modern mystic,... is not trying to 'feel' his way to a God he believes is really there (but whom he cannot approach by way of the mind). The modern mystic does not know if anything is there. All he knows is that he cannot know anything ultimate through the mind. So what is left is experience as experience."

THE GREAT MORAL TEST:

"If...the Christian community does not take a prolonged and vocal stand for the dignity of the individual and each person's right to life--for the right of each individual to be treated as created in the image of God, rather than as a collection of molecules with no unique value--we feel that as Christians we have failed the greatest moral test to be put before us in this century."

ONE WORLDVIEW:

"There is one worldview which can explain the existence of the universe, its form, and the uniqueness of people--the world-view given to us in the Bible."

CONSTITUTIONAL & INDIVIDUAL PRACTICE:

"...we must use every constitutional practice to offset the rise of authoritarian governments and the loss of humanness in our society. But there is no use in talking of offsetting the loss of humanness in society if we do not act humanly to all people about us in the contacts of our individual lives."

THE MIND SET ASIDE:

"This is the key to understanding modern man in the West: Forget your mind; just experience! It may seem extreme--but we say it carefully--this is the philosophy by which the majority of people in the West are now living. For everyday purposes the mind is a useful instrument, but for the things of meaning, for the answers to the big questions, it is set aside."

SLAVERY AND THE PERSON:

"For complex reasons still debated by historians, Englishmen, continental Europeans, and Americans indulged in the fiction that the black man was not a person and could therefore be treated as a thing. This fiction covered their hypocrisy. Actually they harked back to Aristotle's definition of a slave as a living tool and were far removed from the biblical teaching."

HAPPY EASTER FROM FRANCISSCHAEFFERSTUDIES.ORG!:

"If Jesus did not live, or if He did not rise from the dead, Christianity cannot continue. It cannot live on as a mere idea, because Christianity is about objective truth and not merely religious experiences. Both the Old Testament and the New Testament claim to be truth, in contrast to that which is not true, and this truth is rooted in history. We have only one hope, and it rests on a serious commitment to the existence of God and the reliability of His Word, the Bible, in all the areas in which it speaks."

"...all of us have a world-view, whether we realize it or not. We act in accordance with our world-view, and our world-view rests on what to us is the ultimate truth."

THE VALUE OF PEOPLE:

"In the flood of the loss of humanness in our age-including the flow from abortion-on-demand to infanticide and on to euthanasia-the only thing that can stem this tide is the certainty of the absolute uniqueness and value of people. And the only thing which gives us this is the knowledge that people are made in the image of God. We have no other final protection. And the only way we know that people are made in the image of God is through the Bible and the Incarnation of Christ, which we know from the Bible."
