Francis August Schaeffer war ein US-amerikanischer presbyterianischer Theologe und Pastor. Er wurde vor allem im englischsprachigen Raum bekannt durch seine Veröffentlichungen und die Gründung der Kommunität L'Abri in der Schweiz. Im Gegensatz zum theologischen Modernismus war Schaeffer eher Vertreter eines Evangelikalismus und eines „präsuppositionellen“ Ansatzes der christlichen Apologetik, von dem er glaubte, dass dieser Antworten auf die Fragen unseres Zeitalters geben könne.

Zitate Francis Schaeffer

„We must understand something very thoroughly. If society — if the state gives the rights, it can take them away — they're not inalienable. If the states give the rights, they can change them and manipulate them. But this was not the view of the founding fathers of this country.“

—  Francis Schaeffer
Context: We must understand something very thoroughly. If society — if the state gives the rights, it can take them away — they're not inalienable. If the states give the rights, they can change them and manipulate them. But this was not the view of the founding fathers of this country. They believed, although not all of them were individual Christians, that there was a Creator and that this Creator gave the inalienable rights — this upon which our country was founded and which has given us the freedoms which we still have — even the freedoms which are being used now to destroy the freedoms.

„Cambridge historians who aren't Christians would tell you that if it wasn't for the Wesley revival and the social change that Wesley's revival had brought, England would have had its own form of the French Revolution.“

—  Francis Schaeffer
Context: Cambridge historians who aren't Christians would tell you that if it wasn't for the Wesley revival and the social change that Wesley's revival had brought, England would have had its own form of the French Revolution. It was Wesley saying people must be treated correctly and dealing down into the social needs of the day that made it possible for England to have its bloodless revolution in contrast to France's bloody revolution.

„His death there on Calvary's cross is for us individually, but it's not egotistically individualistic. Our individual salvation will one day be a portion of the restoration of all things.“

—  Francis Schaeffer
Context: His death there on Calvary's cross is for us individually, but it's not egotistically individualistic. Our individual salvation will one day be a portion of the restoration of all things. It is our calling until He comes back again that happy day, to do all we can — while it won't be perfect as when He comes back — to see substantial healing in every area that He will then perfectly heal, and that Wesley did understand.

„History indicates that at a certain point of economic breakdown people cease being concerned with individual liberties and are ready to accept regimentation.“

—  Francis Schaeffer
Context: History indicates that at a certain point of economic breakdown people cease being concerned with individual liberties and are ready to accept regimentation. The danger is obviously even greater when the two main values so many people have are personal peace and affluence.
