FRANCIS CHAN ON ”GOD IS FAIR AND JUST”

26115602

 

Francis Chan made a comment in his hit book “CRAZY LOVE” that just cracked me up.

In a section entitled, “God Is Fair and Just” He says:

“God is the only Being who is good, and the standards are set by Him.  Because God hates sin, He has to punish of sin.  Maybe that’s not an appealing standard.  But to put it bluntly, when you get your own universe, you can make you own standards.”

 

Ha! Say what? . . . .  ”when you get your own universe, you can make your own standards.”

Imagine saying that to someone who’s not a Christian. “Hey John – I really don’t think you should be sleeping around any more.  Because after all, you are living in God’s universe.  And when you get your own universe you can make your own standards.”

 

For some reason I don’t think that’s very inviting way of sharing your faith. But you cannot deny that that line does pack a punch . . . because it’s true.

 

So, know of anyone who got their own universe lately? Email Francis Chan at: pleasedontemailfrancischanaboutyourownuniverse@nosillyemailsplease.com*
