How Should we then Live? part 10: Final Choices

When this was filmed and released, it was 1977. As you watch this most important episode, think about how accurate Dr. Schaeffer was in his predictions about the future. Perhaps you may also find something he says to have been inaccurate–watch for that too, but all in all, I recommend you listen very carefully, receive the interpretation of the world which he gives, and allow your mind and heart to be shaped by the same Spirit who moved in Dr. Schaeffer. I believe if any of you have the Holy Spirit, you will not be able to blithely dismiss this dire warning, or for that matter, dismiss the hope which is held out towards the end of the episode.

I would call your attention to a very interesting detail in this video: out of the 10 episodes, it is the only one in which Dr. Schaeffer cracks a smile. Watch for it, and notice what it is that brings this smile to his face. We ought to be grateful for God’s grace given to this brother, and for his work in worldview, philosophy, and ethics. I have benefited greatly in studying his work– and this blog is in part a product of men like Dr. Schaeffer’s passion in this world.

 

Grace and peace in Jesus Christ!

Thanks for watching,

-Justin

    I hadn’t checked your site in quite awhile, Justin, so I’m happy to see that you posted this series. I watched the series back in ’77 when it first came out. I was in Bible college and knew little about little. My classmate already had a goatee so when we’d watch the episodes we’d sit in the front row and he’d pull his socks up over his pant legs. He later walked away from the faith as has Schaeffer’s son, Frankie. Do you mind if I share a few observations as I watch each one?

    • Brother, we may talk past each other too often, but you’re welcome to speak freely here. I have few rules on this forum. Grace to you.

So what are your thoughts?
