Comfortable Christianity

Francis Chan has been the senior pastor at Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley, CA for 16 years and is the author of the best-selling Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God. Speaking at a conference last week, he expressed his frustration over “comfortable” Christianity.

“You go to church these days and you stare forward and sing a couple of songs and listen to the message and go home,” he said.

He feels Christians should live according to the Gospels and like the Church’s early believers who “denied themselves, took up their crosses, sold their possessions to the poor, and shared everything they had.” Interestingly, Chan says he gets more resistance to his “radical” lifestyle from fellow Christians than from non-believers.

Last week, Chan announced he was stepping down from Cornerstone Church and that he and his family were moving to a developing country.
