Orthodoxy with Compassion for the Lost

Posted: November 26, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Christian Theology, Christianity, Discipleship

“If we are Christians and do not have upon us the calling to respond to the lostness of the lost and a compassion for those of our kind, our orthodoxy is ugly and it stinks. And it not only stinks in the presence of the hippie, it stinks in the presence of anybody who’s an honest man. And more than that, I’ll tell you something else, orthodoxy without compassion stinks with God.”

– Francis A. Schaeffer, Death in the City (Chicago, 1969), page 123.
