Sunday Quote: Francis Schaeffer Takes the Roof Off

"Every man has built a roof over his head to shield himself at the point of tension...The Christian lovingly, must remove the shelter and allow the truth of the external world and of what man is to beat upon him. When the roof is off, each man must stand naked and wounded before the truth of what is...He must come to know that his roof is a false protection from the storm of what is."

Francis Schaeffer

The God Who is There, in The Complete Works of Francis Schaeffer (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Books, 1982), 1:140-41

Greatly enjoyed his trilogy of The God who is there, the Escape from Reason, He is there and he is not silent! Wonderful thinker and believer! Thank you for this quote, Brian.
