CQOD: 01/22/08 -- Schaeffer: an unspoken apostacy

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 22, 2008
    Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness. See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness.
    -- Luke 11:34,35 (NIV)

    If we do not preach these things [i.e., the need of Christians to be human], talk about them to each other, and teach them carefully from the pulpit and in the Christian classroom, we cannot expect Christians so to act. This has always been important, but it is especially so today because we are surrounded by a world in which personality is increasingly eroded. If we, who have become God’s children, do not show Him to be personal in our lives, then in practice we are denying His existence.
    ... Francis A. Schaeffer (1912-1984), The God Who is There [1968] in The Complete Works of Francis Schaeffer, v. I., Good News Publishers, 1985, p.173

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, send Your Light.
