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.”
– Francis Chan

[EXCELLENT video] Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle: Erasing Hell — “He gets to define what love is, and not us.” “That means my sin is way worse than I could ever even imagine.” | ~”I think this whole concept of ‘how could God do this’ is woven into the fabric of our culture that says ‘how dare my dad tell me what I can and cannot do!’ We’ve lost the idea of authority, and it’s killing our culture.”
[Q&A] Francis Chan on Rob Bell and Hell: Why ‘ERASING HELL’ was Francis’ most difficult book and how it prompted him to repent for softening Jesus’ warnings — “WE IN AMERICA READ CERTAIN PASSAGES OVER AND OVER TO THE NEGLECT OF OTHERS, we start to believe that Jesus had a friendly tone all the time. … We have tried to block Hell out of our minds. Yet because it’s written about so often in Scripture, I think God does want it on the forefront.”
[10-minute video] Francis Chan: Erasing Hell — “Do you ever even consider the possibility that maybe the Creator’s sense of justice is actually more developed than yours? And that maybe His love and His mercy are perfect, and that you could be the one that is flawed. … We can’t afford to be wrong on this issue.”
