Abnormal normality

From Francis Schaeffer:

“Non-Christian philosophers almost universally agree in seeing everything as normal, assuming things are as they have always been. The Christian sees things now as not the way they have always been. […] The distinction is that as I look about me I know I live in an abnormal world.”
