true spirituality - schaeffer

“When God turns inward to Himself, he is a Trinity, but when when we turn inward, there is no one there to answer…This not only causes psychological problems, but it also destroys my relationship with others. “People without God… hang too much on their personal relationships, and they crush and break.
No love affair between a man and a woman has ever been great enough to hang everything on. It will crumble away under your feet…”“If I acknowledge that I am really not God, and that since the fall we are all sinful, then I can have true human relationships without battering myself to pieces because they are not sufficient in themselves, or because they are not perfect.” Shaeffer, TS 344, 345
