Notable Quote: Francis Schaeffer

Francis Schaeffer (1912 – 1984) on the Christian’s obligation to culture …

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. It is the church’s duty (as well as its privilege) to do now what it should have been doing all the time—to use the freedom we do have to be that salt of the culture. If the slide toward authoritarianism is to be reversed, we need a committed Christian church that is dedicated to what John W. Whitehead calls “total revolution in the reformative sense.”
