Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled…Lean Neither Left Nor Right

francis schaeffer

We must realize that the Reformation world view leads in the direction of government freedom. But the humanist world view with inevitable certainty leads in the direction of statism. This is so because humanists, having no god, must put something at the center, and it is inevitably society, government, or the state. ~ Francis Schaeffer

This is why the gospel and the left are not compatible. However, before you get too upset with me, allow me to share another quote from Francis…

One of the greatest injustices we do to our young people is to ask them to be conservative. Christianity is not conservative, but revolutionary.

There is nothing so counter-cultural as the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.
