Chan on Lukewarm Christians 1

crazy love.jpgChapter 4 of Francis Chan’s book, Crazy Love, is brilliant – yet scary. It is entitled Profile of the lukewarm.

Referring to the parable of the sower Chan repeatedly states, “don’t assume you are good soil”, and then describes lukewarm people as a challenge to rise into hot blooded passion for Jesus Christ.

Over the next few days I am going to share his list of what lukewarm people look like. I will post one a day until we reach the end. It is not an easy read but in the book Chan tells us that the Bible says to test ourselves so it a good thing. Make sure you take time, read the posts thoughtfully and prayerfully, be careful not to miss the challenge and call of the Holy Spirit.

Lukewarm people attend church fairly regularly. It is what is expected of them, what they believe “good Christians” do, so they go.


Isaiah 29:13 (NIV), “The Lord says:

“These people come near to me with their mouth
and honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me.
Their worship of me
is based on merely human rules they have been taught.

  1. I must say I agree with these people that are not perfect but Jesus and God are the only Ones that are. GOD THE FATHER; JESUS HIS ONLY SON; AND WHEN SPIRITUALLY READY, THE HOLY GHOST, now adays I find that religion is as crazy as politics, when there is only one way to worship, may be different wording to all, thats geography. The only true way to worship is to love and put everything in HIS. hands
