“I don’t like hearing my name so much. …
I hear the words Francis Chan
more than I hear the words Holy Spirit

“…we focus on some of these New Testament teachings without the background
of understanding that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”

“There’s just this trend in churches awhile back
where we would make fun of those Hellfire and brimstone preachers:
‘Ah, you know, those old-time pastors.’
And you look at the scriptures,
you go: that’s what the scriptures teach.”

Let’s not be swayed by the culture.
Let’s go back to what the truth has always been from the beginning,
and has never been popular.”

“There’s a lack of peace in so many people. …
There isn’t as much peace as sometimes we pretend there is….
And yet, during those times in our lives when we do put ourselves at risk,
those are the only times we really feel peace. …
And we experience God.”

“Even that phrase lukewarm Christian,
I don’t see that in the scripture.
He refers to these people as lukewarm.
He also refers to them as blind, naked, poor, wretched, pitiable.
And He says, I’m going to spit you out of My mouth
because you’re lukewarm
. …
I don’t know how you can read that passage
and call that person a Christian,

because a Christian’s not going to be
spit out of the mouth of God

“There is this narrow road that leads to life
and few will find it.”

We’re all believers, you know, in this room
because we all prayed a prayer at some point in our life.
I just don’t see that in scriptures.”

– Francis Chan
