Thank you for the links to the scriptural references. I will check the rest out tomorrow.
Excerpts with a few of my notes:
"As a crusading evangelist and author, Francis Schaeffer ), urged conservative Christians to politically battle abortion and engage the secular culture. But he would have recoiled from the "snide" comments and jeering at this summer's Republican National Convention, his son Frank says.
Schaeffer (the son) has left the Republican Party -- he considers himself an independent and is supporting Barack Obama -- and the evangelical church. He finds the Greek Orthodox Church more suitable to his spirituality than being a "professional Christian."
"If you're an evangelist, you've got to be a special person not to lose your grip on what you believe," he said. "I lost my grip. I had to get out for the salvation of my soul." - Modern Reformation website.
- Link on Schaeffer: so my gosh, myself a Catholic was exposed to Schaeffer being a deep Protestant thinker and I'm not meaning to be judgemental but now his son is thinking these certain ways? Can he actually belong to a Greek Orthodox Church in good conscience?
He looked like some Hepcat or Apostle even if you will and I don't respect him less but I wonder if there has been a breakdown of the message of God in his family.
