There is nothing more ugly than an orthodoxy without understanding or without compassion.
. . .Christianity is not romantic; it is realistic. Christianity is realistic because it says that if there is no truth, there is also no hope; and there can be no truth is there is no adequate base. It is prepared to face the consequences of pbeing proved false and say with Paul: If you find the body of Christ, the discussion is finished, let us eat and drink for tomorrow we die. It leaves absolutely no room for a romantic answer.
The God Who is There, Francis Schaeffer
