“The basic problem of Christians in this country,” says Francis Schaeffer in A Christian Manifesto, “in regard to society and in regard to government, is that they have seen things in bits and pieces instead of totals.”
Furthermore, Christians have very gradually “become disturbed over permissiveness, pornography, the public schools, the breakdown of the family, and finally abortion. But they have not seen this as a totality — each thing being a part, a symptom of a much larger problem. They have failed to see that all of this has come about due to a shift in the world view — that is, through a fundamental change in the overall way people think and view the world as a whole.”
So, what is this “much larger problem”?
