Some Glimpses of Beauty from Spain

This is the type of thing which originally inspired Interpreting the Cosmos. There is such a fascinating variety of glory to be seen and enjoyed!

Look at the stunning array of birds from Spain in this video: diverse, colorful, intelligent, and just plain cool. They reflect the Source of their life, and He is awesome. Enjoy… (Just over 4 minute video and well worth the time).

Thanks for watching,

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,

How Should we then Live? part 3: The Renaissance

Dr. Francis Schaeffer continues to guide us through the past in order to interpret the present and future of western civilization. Let’s take a walk through some of the highlights of the Renaissance to see if we can learn anything useful for our present day lives. I guarantee we can, if you’ll listen.
