Communion With God

Francis A. Schaeffer

The Roman Catholic Church had come to teach the wrong doctrines.  And I feel that most of the Reformation then let the pendulum swing and thought if only the right doctrines were taught that all would be automatically well.  Thus, to a large extent, the Reformation concentrated almost exclusively on the "teaching ministry of the Church."  In other words almost all the emphasis was placed on teaching the right doctrines.  In this I feel the fatal error had already been made.  It is not for a moment that we can begin to get anywhere until the right doctrines are taught.  But the right doctrines mentally assented to are not an end in themselves, but should only be the vestibule to a personal and loving communion with God.
