We Don’t Really Want It

“I feel very concerned for those people who walk into these buildings we call church and think they are Christians because they said a prayer and made a decision.

“Saying a prayer means nothing if there’s no follow through.”

“Where’s the obvious truth and where’s the obedience because I think we’ve missed some obvious things and created a system that doesn’t really make sense and we’ve done that because we don’t really want to live out Christianity, we don’t really want to become like Christ.

“Do you really want to be like Christ – rejected your whole life, spit upon, crucified? … We don’t want that part of Christ and yet it is those times when we are rejected for the Gospel that we really feel the peace and come to remotely resemble Jesus.”

– Francis Chan
