The Church Before the Watching World : A Practical Ecclesiology. It is amazing how culturally relevant Francis Schaeffer’s books still are today – at times, even more relevant now than when they were written

The Church Before the Watching World : A Practical Ecclesiology. 085110357X (ISBN13: 9780851103570). It is amazing how culturally relevant Francis Schaeffer’s books still are today – at times, even more relevant now than when they were written. This book is about how damaging liberal theology is to the church and how true Bible believing Christians should act in response to that.

Francis August Schaeffer (January 30, 1912 – May 15, 1984) was an American Evangelical Christian theologian, philosopher, and Presbyterian pastor. He is best known for establishing the L'Abri community in Switzerland. Opposed to theological modernism, Schaeffer promoted a more historic Protestant faith and a presuppositional approach to Christian apologetics, which he believed would answer the questions of the age.

This valuable book is addressed to Christians today and involves the principle of the practice of the purity of the visible church in regard to doctrine and life; and the principle of the practice . Schaeffer concentrates on the first principle.

This valuable book is addressed to Christians today and involves the principle of the practice of the purity of the visible church in regard to doctrine and life; and the principle of the practice of an observable love and oneness among all true Christians. Schaeffer continuously quotes scripture as he tackles subjects such as the liberal theological shift over time from Christian orthodoxy; and the apostasy and unfaithfulness of our marriage to both Christ and our spouse; also the practice of community, which we tend to forget about.

For anyone who wants a good explanation about what today's liberalism is in American and European churches, read this book. Simple but thorough.

Francis August Schaeffer (1912-1984) was an American Christian theologian, philosopher, apologist, and Presbyterian pastor, as well as the founder of the L'Abri community in Switzerland. He wrote the famed "trilogy": God Who Is There,Escape from Reason, and He is There & He is not Silent. He has also written many other books such as How Then should We then Live,Genesis in Space and Time,Joshua and the Flow of Biblical History,The Church At the End of the 20th Century, etc. He also turned to politics with Whatever happened to the human race, which was influenced by his filmmaker son Frank (who later regretted it; see his book, Crazy for God: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect).

He wrote in the Introduction to this 1971 book, "This book is addressed to 20th century Christians as they face a very practical problem. As Christians we say we believe in truth and in the practice of truth, and yet we face much untruth in the visible church... The biblical teaching is clear. As the bride of Christ, the church is to keep itself pure and faithful. And this involves... two principles which seem at first to work against each other: (1) the principle of the practice of the purity of the visible church in regard to doctrine and life and (2) the principle of the practice of an observable love and oneness among ALL true Christians regardless of who and where they are.... The issues involved ... break down into several questions. (1) How has the present impurity in the churches come about and what is it? (2) Why should Christians and churches be concerned with doctrinal purity? (3) How can doctrinal purity in the church be maintained in practice?"

He recalls, "Several years ago I wrestled with the question of what was wrong with much of the church... I came to the conclusion that in the flesh we can stress purity without love or we can stress the love of God without purity, but that in the flesh we cannot stress both simultaneously." (Pg. 63) He observes, "As a Bible-believing Presbyterian I feel very close to true Christians from other traditions and... with other distinctives. I feel no separation in Christ... While I feel close to Bible-beileving Christians who are not Presbyterians, I am not close to non-Bible-believing Presbyterians. This is where the division lies." (Pg. 80-81)

He asserts, "We come now to a fourth limit: the absolute cliff concerning the holiness of God. God has a character and his holiness is part of his character. We do not believe, as some modern theologians would have it, that God's holiness only means his being God. Rather, it means that there are some things that conform to his nature and some things that do not. God's holiness, in other words, involves moral content." (Pg. 95) He adds, "And yet we must immediately respond that we fall off the opposite cliff if we forget that God is love... We can, therefore, fall into heresy in two ways. We can forget either God's holiness or his love, and we cannot say which of these is worse." (Pg. 96)

He notes in conclusion, "Finally, we come to the last absolute limit... There is such a thing as absolute right and absolute wrong in systems. Of course, in our generation the whole direction is toward being unwilling to say that any system is right or wrong. Even many who consider themselves evangelicals are embarrassed by the Reformers' saying that the Roman Catholic system as a system was wrong. But we must affirm the possibility of right and wrong with regard to systems and categories." (Pg. 103)

Schaeffer's comments are, for the most part, still pertinent and of interest to Christians today---even 40+ years later.
