The God Who Is There

On life in a post-Christian era: “Absolutes imply antithesis. The non-Christian went on romantically operating on this basis without a sufficient base for doing so. It was still possible to discuss what was right and wrong, what was true and false. One could tell a non-Christian to “be a good girl’, and, while she might not have followed your advice, at least she would have understood what you were talking about. To say the same thing to a truly modern girl today would be to make a ‘nonsense’ statement. The blank look you might receive would not mean that your standards had been rejected but that your message was meaningless.” Francis Schaffer
