How Shall We Then Live

In Sunday School we’ve been viewing the Francis Schaeffer video series “How Shall We Then Live“. Fantastic. Concise. Very clear evaluation of what’s been going on over the centuries.

Francis Schaeffer

I’m thankful I can see this series again after having seen it in college, and several years ago in Sunday School. I was challenged to search the Scripture for verses pertaining to influencing culture. Here are some verses I found:

Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle…

Genesis 2:15 Then the Lord god took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.

Psalm 8:6 You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; you have put all things under his feet.

Job 14:15 You shall call, and I will answer you; you shall desire the work of your hands.

Psalm 104:23 Man goes out to his work and to his labor until the evening.

Psalm 101:3 I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me.
