Lukewarm Christians

Ive been reading a book called Crazy Love by Francis Chan and I must share it with you.

I am a Christian and I’m not always proud to say that. But not because I don’t love God and Jesus, but maybe it’s more because I don’t want to labeled as judgmental.

I have close friends and family that don’t believe in God, and I always wanted to change their mind. I wanted to make them

See what I see and feel what I feel. But the more I read and more I learn I think my friends are turned off by our man made religion.

I think they just might be able to

Accept God and his son if it weren’t for all the labels and the rules that man made religion had bestowed upon them.

What turns them off is when your fears and your own shortcomings come out and make them feel unworthy. There’s nothing in the bible that says one person deserves love because they attended church, but another person deserves judgment because they don’t go.

This has been weighing heavy on my heart and God wants me to share this message with you. I posted many pictures about the profile of the Luke warm and I have a Bible

Verse to follow each one up.

If you find yourself in any of those areas I would beg you to question your motives.

Do you want to know why Jesus talked in parables?

Its because he knew that some people were coming to listen to him but that their hearts weren’t in the right place.

So he spoke in code so those people who were listening with their minds couldn’t absorb

The goodness, but those who listened with their hearts were able to receive the message.

“It is not scientific doubt, not atheism, not pantheism, not agnosticism that in our day and in this land is likely to quench the light of the gospel. It is a proud, sensuous, luxurious, church going, hollow hearted prosperity”

This is so true!

I found this message exactly when I was supposed to!

How many people go to church because it’s

The thing to do?

He doesn’t care if you sit in church every single Sunday if your hearts still not in the right place.

He would much rather you got your hands dirty and served him in the real world. He would

Much rather you stop judging things and people that make you uncomfortable and that you learn to grow your heart, eyes and mind to better serve his purpose, not the egos purpose.

I will share this lesson a million times because the world needs less judgmental friends and more love.

I’m strong enough to stand up and to use my voice to go against the crowd because this is how my

Father

Made me!

Never ever ever think that because your doing all the things a Christian is supposed to do that you are on the road to salvation.

Because in the end you can’t trick the man above.

He knows your heart and he knows your mind and he knows if you live a life full

Of fears and judgments.

He also knows if your real or if your fake.

He knows if you pick and choose what rules of his to follow and which ones that you ignore.

Is your love lukewarm?

Or does it challenge you to the core?

  1. In my opinion, lukewarm is too close to cold for me. In another context..It also feels like I would be riding the fence. I prefer hot. I prefer to faithfully be on one side or the other.

    Yep! My love for HIM is hot.

      1. I did go and look on Amazon for Crazy Love. Just so I’m sure, who is the author of this fascinating title? I may well download or buy. Per your astute suggestion, I’m now curious!!!
