The Madness of a Lost Society

"The last sixty years has given birth to a moral disaster, and what have we done? Sadly, we must say that the evangelical world has been part of the disaster.

More than this, the evangelical response itself has been a disaster. Where is the clear voice speaking to the crucial issues of the day with distinctively biblical, Christian answers?

With tears we must say it is not there and that a large segment of the evangelical world has been seduced by the world spirit of this present age.

And more than this, we can expect the future to be a further disaster if the evangelical world does not take a stand for biblical truth and morality in the full spectrum of life.

For the evangelical accommodation to the world of our age represents the removal of the last barrier against the breakdown of our culture.

And with the final removal of this barrier will come social chaos and the rise of authoritarianism in some form to restore social order. "

Francis Shaeffer, The Great Evangelical Disaster
