When you have 15 minutes, watch the video below. It’s a conversation where Mark Driscoll and Josh Harris, who both pastor fairly large churches, ask Francis Chan why he left his large church in order to pursue something else.
He’s not sure what it really is yet, but he expresses a desire to live sacrifically, to make disciples, to be generous with his money, etc. It’s interesting how the first “concern” the other two pastors have is that he is trying to “earn” his salvation somehow. Chan responds well, saying he’s not trying to prove himself to God, but simply motivated by love.
It’s telling that when someone starts living sacrifically/radically, often the first response is an accusation of legalism. Methinks thou protesteth too much.
