Keywords: orthodoxy, ugliness, humanity
"Nothing is more ugly than the orthodox man [Christian] treating another man as less than a man." ~ Dr. Francis Schaeffer, The Church Before the Watching World
"Christianity [doctrinally] is not to be considered a single point or a narrow repetitive line, but as a circle which provides form. Within the circle there is freedom to move in terms of understanding and expression." ~ Dr. Francis Schaeffer ~ Some Absolute Limits (Appendix to The Church Before The Watching World)
Keywords: habits, controversy
"Beware the habits we learn in controversy. Both must appear together: the holiness of God and the love of God simultaneously by the grace of God." ~ Dr. Schaeffer, The Church Before The Watching World
Keywords: science, modern-modern science, open system, closed system, significance of mankind
"...the view of the older science (a science whose concept of the uniformity of natural causes in an open system was completely consistent with biblical thought) was being replaced by what I call modern, modern science (a concept which, by the uniformity of natural causes in a closed system, eventually leaves no room for God or a significant man)." ~ Dr. Francis Schaeffer, The Church Before the Watching World
