In his Book, The Great Evangelical DisasterFrancis Shaeffer warned:

“…Something has happened in the last sixty years (1920-1980’s).  The freedom that once was founded on a Biblical consensus and a Christian ethos has now become autonomous freedom, cut loose from all constraints.  Here we have the world spirit of our age – autonomous man setting himself up as God, in defiance of the knowledge and the moral and spiritual truth which God has given.  Here is the reason why we have a moral breakdown in every area of life.  The titanic freedoms which we once enjoyed have been cut loose from their  Christian restraints and are becoming a force of destruction leading to chaos.  And when this happens, there really are very few alternatives.  All morality becomes relative, law becomes arbitrary, and society moves toward disintegration.  In personal and social life, compassion is swallowed up by self-interest…when the memory of the Christian consensus which gave us freedom within the Biblical form is increasingly forgotten, a manipulating authoritarianism will tend to fill the vacuum.  At this point the words “right” and “left” will make little difference.  They are only roads to the same end; the results are the same.  An elite, an authoritarianism as such, will gradually force form on society so that it will not go into chaos – and most people would accept it.”

Galations 5:13 “For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.”
