CQOD: 06/07/07 -- Schaeffer: Christian sociology

Christian Quotation of the Day

June 7, 2007
    Brothers, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults.
    -- 1 Corinthians 14:20 (NIV)

    This is the real Church of the Lord Jesus Christ—not merely organization, but a group of people, individually the children of God, drawn together by the Holy Spirit for a particular task, either in a local situation or over a wider area. The Church of the Lord Jesus should be a group of those who are redeemed and bound together on the basis of true doctrine. But subsequently they should show together a substantial “sociological healing” of the breaches between men, which have come about because of... man’s sin. The Christian sociological position is that the sociological problems which we find... are a result of the separation that has come between men because of sin. (Continued tomorrow)
    ... Francis A. Schaeffer (1912-1984), The God Who Is There [1968]

Quiet time reflection:
    Heal us, Lord.
