Becoming Real People

“If they cannot look upon us and say,” These are real people,” nothing else is enough. Far too often young people become Christians and then search among the church’s ranks for real
people, and have a hard task finding them. All too often evangelicals are paper people.”

Schaeffer, Francis The God Who Is There, InterVarsity Press Copyright (c) 1968 p. 193

This is pretty funny. Our Youth Pastor, who is a good friend, preached yesterday morning. His topic was "Get Real" and it was quite direct and poignent. And right-on in terms of what I hear God telling me and us. So, interesting that you posted this today. And it's interesting to me that this was in 1968!
