Quotes from Francis Schaeffer

 

1. Biblical orthodoxy without compassion is surely the ugliest thing in the world.

2. The Christian in the one whose imagination should fly beyond the stars.

3. One of the greatest injustices we do to our young people is to ask them to be conservative. Christianity is not conservative, but revolutionary.

4. Most people catch their presuppositions from their family and surrounding society, the way that a child catches the measles. But people with understanding realise that their presuppositions should be chosen after a careful consideration of which worldview is true.

5. The Christian should be the person who is alive, whose imagination absolutely boils, which moves, which produces something a bit different from God’s world because God made us to be creative.

6. When a man comes under the blood of Christ, his whole capacity as a man is refashioned. His soul is saved, yes, but so are his mind and his body. True spirituality means the lordship of Christ over the total man.

7. In passing we should note this curious mark of our age: The only absolute allowed is the absolute insistence that there is no absolute.

8. A quiet disposition and a heart giving thanks at any given moment is the real test of the extent to which we love God at that moment.

9. When the world can turn around and see a group of God’s people exhibiting substantial healing in the area of human relationships in their present life, then the world will take notice.
