Article about Henry F. Schaefer III

Henry F. Schaeffer III

“The significance and joy in my science come in those occasional moments of discovering something new and saying to myself ‘so that’s how God did it.’ My goal is to understand a little corner of God's plan.” “I am sympathetic to teleological arguments, but primarily I am a proponent of Jesus.” (US News and World Report, 12/23/91)

“While there are many questions that intelligent people ask about God, … I do not believe that any of these are sufficient to keep a reasonable person from pursuing a personal relationship with God.

“In fact, the answers I found to these questions were an important factor in an incredible discovery that I made during my fourth year on the faculty at University of California, Berkeley. I discovered that God offered forgiveness to me for all of my disobedience and rebellion against Him. I found that Jesus Christ had paid the penalty for all of my self-centered actions when He suffered and died on the cross and was raised from the dead. When I trusted Jesus to be my Savior that year, I discovered that through Jesus I had been forgiven of my sins. I also found that I had been given a clean relationship with God, a purpose for living, and the assurance of spending eternity with God when I die. Can you imagine anything more wonderful than that?”
