Dr. Francis Schaeffer

Host: Dr. James Dobson

October 27, 2022

In the early 1980s, Dr. Francis Schaeffer warned of the disastrous effects of elevating an individual’s needs over the needs of society. Sadly, we are seeing his words of caution come to fruition even now. On today’s classic edition of Family Talk, Dr. Schaeffer calls out Bible-believing Christians for their silence in the face of the great moral issues of our day. He asserts that the Church has failed for two reasons. First, we’ve forgotten that Jesus is not only our Savior, but the Lord of all life. Second, many of us are too afraid to speak out. Dr. Schaeffer says that like the early Christians and America’s founding fathers, we must seek to obey God rather than man.
