Spiritual adultery, physical adultery

“The Old Testament says that if God’s people turn away in spiritual adultery, it will not be long until the following generations are engaged in physical adultery, for the two things go hand in hand. . . . Our generation proves this with overwhelming force.  Let there be spiritual adultery and it will not be long until physical adultery sprouts like toadstools in the land.  In the 1930s liberalism took over almost all the churches in the United States, and in the 1960s our generation is sick with promiscuous sex.  It is the same in Britain and other countries.  These things are not unrelated; they are cause and effect.”
~ Francis A. Schaeffer
