You cannot have true freedom when it rests solely on the arbitrary decisions of a small group of individuals at a given time. Dr. Francis Schaeffer predicted in 1982 the judicial tyranny that was coming 30+ years later, when our U.S. Supreme Court would be legislating from the bench.
When you replace absolute morality with Relativism, you will inevitably end up with tyranny.
“We must understand something very thoroughly. If the state gives rights, it can take them away –they ’re not inalienable. If the state gives rights, they can change them and manipulate them. But the Founding Fathers believed there was a Creator and that this Creator gave inalienable rights –that is what has given us the freedoms which we still have…We are losing those freedoms and we can expect to continue losing them if this other worldview continues to take increased force and power in our country.”
It is not too late for us to heed and apply these prophetic words spoken by God’s messenger, Dr. Schaeffer. We simply MUST hear these important words once again.
“The Government, and especially the courts, have become the vehicle to force this anti-God worldview on the population.”
Dr. Schaeffer also predicted and talked about the need for a Biblical theology of civil disobedience.
You can get a copy of the book and DVD of A Christian Manifesto to hear this important and timely prophetic message once again.
