On Faith and Rationality
Francis A. Schaeffer

Four consequences of pitting [separating] faith against [from] rationality in an unbiblical manner: 1. Moral relativity. "What really forms the 'Christlike' act today is simply what the majority of the Church or the majority of society makes up its mind is desirable at the particular moment."

2. There is "no adequate basis for law. The whole Reformation system of law was built on the fact that God had revealed something real down into the common things of life..... For Reformation man there was a basis for law. Modern man has not only thrown away Christian theology; he has thrown away the possibility of what our forefathers had as a basis for morality and law."

3. "... throws away the answer to the problem of evil. Christianity's answer rests in the historic, space-time, real and complete Fall.

4. "....we throw away our chance of evangelizing real twentieth-century people in the midst of their predicament."
