Click this link to read a fantastic speech by the late Dr. Francis A. Schaeffer, a wonderful Reformed theologian and scholar. The speech was given in 1982 at the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It is based on one of his books, which bears the same title.
It is a prophetic speech: looking at the current state of our country and of the Supreme Court, one might think that it was presented just last week, given how timely and relevant to today are its themes.
In light of the battle we may face in the immediate future to confirm President Bush's nominee to the Supreme Court, this speech reminds us of how critically important the stakes are, and helps us to reflect on the fundamental principles involved in the Christian's challenge to honor God in all spheres of life.
