How Lukewarm is too Lukewarm?

Did he really say that?

I recently read Francis Chan‘s book entitled “Crazy Love“. He is a pastor and author that I admire and respect. His church gives away 55% of their money. He has walked away from fame and fortune to follow the plan of God. He has kept himself financially and morally clean.

 

The book,”Crazy Love”, is a challenge to the church’s commitment, calling them to be sold out. He especially focuses on the passage in James 2:17. “So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”

He challenges the reader in the following ways:
“Are you willing to say to God that He can have whatever He wants?”
“Do you believe that wholehearted commitment to Him is more important than any other thing or person in your life?”
“Do you know that nothing  you do in this life will ever matter unless it is about loving God or loving people?”
