Schaeffer: the time of apostasy

Thursday, June 28, 2018
    Feast of Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons, Teacher, Martyr, c.200
    [Jesus:] “He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”
    —John 8:47 (NIV)
    It was my generation and the generation that preceded me that forgot [the purpose of man]. The younger generation is not primarily to be blamed. Those who are struggling today, those who are far away and doing what is completely contrary to the Christian conscience, are not first to be blamed. It is my generation and the generation that preceded me who turned away. Today we are left largely not only with a religion and a church without meaning, but we are left with a culture without meaning.
    ... Francis A. Schaeffer (1912-1984), Death in the City, London: Inter-Varsity Press, 1969, Good News Publishers, 2002, p. 36 (see the book)
    See also John 8:47; Judg. 21:25; 2 Chr. 7:14; John 10:25-29; 17:6-8; 1 John 3:10; 4:1-6; 5:1; 2 John 1:9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, bring our people back to Your Way.
