Schaeffer

Posted: February 3, 2008 in Quote of the Day

Men in our own sociologically and psychologically oriented age have all kinds of explanations for the moral problems of man. But according to the Bible, it is not moral declension that causes doctrinal declension; it is just the opposite. Turning away from the truth — that which is cognitive, that which may be known about God — produces moral declension.
Francis Schaeffer
Death in the City (Downers Grove, InterVarsity Press: 1969)
