Schaeffer: the material and the spiritual

Thursday, June 18, 2015
    Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He appeared in a body, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.
    —1 Timothy 3:16 (NIV)
    The resurrection and ascension prove there is no reason to make false dichotomy between the spiritual and the material. That is a totally non-biblical concept. The material and the spiritual are not opposed. The fact that our bodies are going to be raised also speaks of this.
    ... Francis A. Schaeffer (1912-1984), Pollution and the Death of Man [1970], reprint, Good News Publishers, 1992, p. 56 (see the book)
    See also Luke 24:39-43,50-51; John 20:19-20,27; 1 Cor. 15:42; 1 Tim. 3:16; 1 John 4:2-3; 2 John 1:7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your Son is flesh and spirit united.
