RADICAL! Francis Chan moving to Hong Kong; tells the truth in his last message!

Excellent message about American Christianity verses real Christianity. How theologians have twisted the written word of God!

“Fear” means fear! Lukewarm is gross to God!

27:10 “I’m praying that something I’ve said through the years sticks, and especially this morning, that the Holy Spirit of God would light a fire in some of you to where you work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, right now.”

(3 min video) No Such Thing As Lukewarm Christians | Francis Chan

I wrote these comments:

Jesus spoke to me in a dream that I was in danger of going to hell *merely* for lusting while watching TV. I then did a careful study, and write what the NT really says here, which includes my dream:

“Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT”

“Not everyone who SAYS to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he who DOES the will of my Father who is in heaven.” – Jesus in Mt. 7:21

(video) Francis Chan Meets Some Jehovah's Witnesses

Francis is really special! Many of his teachings are really good, including his teachings on hell, which he co-wrote a book on. It’s interesting that when Francis challenged these witnesses about their own eternity, where they’ll end up, heaven or hell, and how they’ve put all of their trust in someone else’s interpretation of what the Bible says, I wonder if Francis knew that their false teachers also tell them that no one goes to hell — which they then teach others, door to door, throughout America, deceiving many.

Francis Chan Meets Some Jehovah’s Witnesses

Published on Apr 26, 2012

How do Jehovah’s Witnesses react when they meet someone really excited about God and the Bible and they want to talk about it? Often times they can’t run away fast enough. Are they really looking for people who love God and love the Bible -or- are they just looking for people who will blindly submit themselves to their doctrine?

(video) Francis Chan: Praying like Paul prayed – for others!

Excellent message except: God does not make sure we won’t walk away though, starting @18:30. Many truly born-again people are doing exactly that — not making sure they’re right with God and men — keeping our hearts pure, our consciences clean.
God allows us to willfully sin and not repent; though, it will grieve His heart. Those who do this become prodigal. God eagerly waits for them/us to return, but He won’t make us serve Him.

The Church In The End Days – Francis Chan

We are seeing families are falling apart, teens are out of control, parents are faced with addictions. How in the world does a Pastor lead this congregation to glorify God. This message is to encourage and challenge pastors. All Rights belong to Francis Chan

(4 min audio) Francis Chan: Paul's Life Makes Sense in Light of Hell – "People are beating him up, spitting on him, stoning him, whipping him… but he wasn't going to stop"

Francis Chan, transcribed by me:

“When I look at Paul’s life, and he goes around telling everyone he can — people are beating him up, spitting on him, stoning him, whipping him, whatever, but he wasn’t going to stop. I look at that, I go: ‘see, but that makes sense.’ Don’t you look at his life and go: ‘in light of hell, his life makes sense.’ Right? And that’s what bugs me. His life makes sense, because if I really believed in a literal hell….”

One person commented:

Chan was talking about Penn of Penn and Teller, I believe. Ive seen where someone from Way of the Master talked to Penn and that was his response, about how much do you hate someone not to tell them about hell.

Paul “always having a conscience void of offense toward God and men(Acts 24:16) also makes sense in light of hell. His conscience needed to be clear for his own salvation, as well as to be qualified to lead others.

Published on Sep 4, 2013

Francis Chan teaches about the sinful condition of mankind, and God’s willingness to punish sin in spite of His love for us.

Doctrine
Knowing the Truth and Acting On It

What are the essential beliefs of Christianity? And how should a healthy understanding of doctrinal issues—like The Trinity, the Church, sin and salvation—impact the way we live and act toward God and others?

We will all face times where our faith will be challenged either by other people or by difficult circumstances. That’s why it’s critical that we have a foundational knowledge of the core beliefs of Christianity and a willing heart to obey God.

In these seven dynamic sessions, students share real-life stories about their own struggles with living out the essentials of their faith on a daily basis. And Francis Chan provides powerful teaching from Scripture and helps teens understand the core of our Christian faith.

Francis Chan Bio:
Francis Chan is the founder of Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley, where he served as the pastor for 16 years. Francis is a nationally recognized speaker focusing mostly on college-aged adults and pastors. He’s committed to teach directly from the words of Scripture and is passionate about seeing the next generation of American Christians display a much deeper love for Jesus and their neighbors.

In April 2010, Francis stepped down to pursue ministry that God laid on his heart and continues as a non-staff elder of the Cornerstone Church. He is the author of New York Times best-selling book, Crazy Love as well as Forgotten God and three children’s books.

He has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Master’s College and a Master of Divinity degree from Master’s Seminary. He is also the Founder of Eternity Bible College and serves on the board of directors for Children’s Hunger Fund and World Impact.

Francis lives in Northern California with his wife, Lisa, and their five children.

(video) Francis Chan on priorities: Marriage above the kingdom? • HELL, Rob Bell, & God’s ignored wrath side • The desire to be liked vs being willing to be lonely — “If I say what’s popular I’m probably going to be wrong”

The Q&A is especially good — minute-45!

Perhaps this is the main reason the majority are willing to step outside the box, the prepared cage to see what’s really going on and live in reality.

Transcriptions by me.

K.P. Yohannan said to Francis:

“God could do great things through you if you are willing to be lonely, if you are willing to be misunderstood. But the moment you’re not willing to stand alone, the moment you’re not willing to be lonely is the moment that you will be of no use to God.”

The desire to be liked…

“Focus on the kingdom, not the family” — and then the family and marriage will work out.

“I want to hear Your voice, because the majority is always going to be wrong.”

“If I say what’s popular I’m probably going to be wrong.”

Once we understand how to follow Jesus, we see the hard life that might be in store for us, and then the real question becomes not how, but why we would want to follow Him in the first place.

What is church?
Who is it for?
Is it broken?
Can it be better?

“If I only had this as my guide … if all I had was the Bible … and I was to read this book and then start a church, what would it look like? Would it look like the thing that we’ve built here and all refer to as church? Or would it look radically different?”

Trends come and go in our culture and the church seems to follow.

BASIC is a seven-part series of short films that challenges us to reclaim the church as Scripture describes it to be.

This series speaks to those who have questions about the church and to those who may have lost interest in the church.

What is church?
You are church.
I am church.
We are church.

Is church a specific place where individuals gather once a week to sing a few songs and listen to someone talk about God, or does church refer to the people themselves, who share a common mission in the world? Maybe if we start to view church the way God designed it, as a family loving each other and living and sharing all of life together, we might show the world a glimpse of who God is, and we might begin to impact the world as God intended us to do.
