Francis Chan – SEMNAL DE ALARMĂ PENTRU BISERICA CONTEMPORANĂ!

Francis Chan despre „două din cele mai înspăimântătoare minciuni”, pe care si unii dintre crestini le cred….

DREPTATE ÎN DRAGOSTE

Avertizarea pe care o face acest slujitor al Evangheliei, este pe cât de tristă, pe atât de adevărată.

Doar studierea profundă a Cuvântului Biblic și trăirea lui, poate ajuta orice credincios să ajungă la destinația dorită de Dumnezeu.

Numai o lege omenească fără temei adânc în Cuvântul Biblic, nu trebuie urmată, chiar dacă este propusă de cei mai mari teologi sau lideri religioși ai momentului.

Vă încurajez să citiți cu atenție mesajul lui Francis Chan și veți vedea câtă dreptate are.

Cred că două din cele mai înspăimântătoare minciuni din lumea actuală, sunt:

1.Ești o persoană bună

2.Pentru că Dumnezeu este un Dumnezeu care iubește, El nu pedepsește

Cred că acestea sunt niște minciuni care sunt rostite zilnic, peste tot în țara noastră, și oamenii le și cred.

Ești o persoană bună. Sau că există numai oameni buni

La orice înmormântare ai merge, auzi numai: Ea a fost…

What Do You Need in Order to Be Happy? Francis Chan

Sermon begins with commissioning missionaries to Indonesia, followed by a teaching on complete surrender to Christ from Philippians 4. Voltaire once said, “God created man in his own image and now man is returning the favor.” We want to recreate God in the way we want to be. One author wrote, “The American church has created a middle-class Jesus.” Following Jesus on His terms comes first. We need a radical Jesus, the Christ of the Bible. We must not settle for a middle-class Jesus.

EȘECURILE ȘI ÎNCERCĂRILE, PRODUC CREȘTINII DE VALOARE !! Francis Chan

Dacă citim Biblia cu atenție, putem observa un lucru paradoxal cu gândirea omenească și anume, cei mai mulți TITANI ai credinței au fost formați prin EȘECURI, DURERE ȘI ZDROBIRE. Să medităm doar la câteva cazuri biblice: Iov, Iosif, Ieremia, etc. Am avut harul să stau de vorbă cu mai mulți oameni mari ai timpurilor noastre, iar concluzia a fost că toți au un punct comun: ZDROBIREA EU-LUI (lepădarea de sine) cu toate că între ei sunt multe alte diferențe.

De ce totuși, primul lucru care ne vine în minte, atunci când cineva trece prin anumite eșecuri, încercări ori momente slabe în viață, sunt judecăți de tot felul. Ce-o fi păcătuit de i s-a întâmplat acel lucru?

Mintea omenească este “setată”  (de multe ori fără voia noastră) pe principiul prosperității, chiar dacă cei mai mulți îl condamnăm. Gândim cam în felul următor: Dacă ești un bun creștin, toate trebuie să-ți meargă bine, tot timpul!
Nimic mai greșit. Exemplul ce urmează, este foarte elocvent în această direcție.
Dumnezeu nu poate folosi pe nimeni dacă nu deține cea mai importantă virtute creștină:  SMERENIA, care nu se poate dobândi, nici în școală, nici chiar în Biserică, ci doar într-o relație apropiată cu Dumnezeu și o dependență de Dumnezeu totală.
Francis Chan, a avut o viață tristă și plină de durere, iar astăzi, cu toate că este încă tânăr, este folosit de Dumnezeu cu-n impact aproape ne mai întâlnit, la nivel Internațional. Doresc doar să menționez faptul că a rămas orfan de mamă chiar din timpul nașterii, iar la vârsta de 16 ani, nu mai avea pe nimeni dintre cei din familia apropiată lui. A învățat depedența de Dumnezeu într-un mod unic, ceea ce astăzi îl face unic în ceea ce privește extinderea Împărăției LUI Dumnezeu.

Dar vă las să citiți mai jos ceea ce are el de spus în această privință.

FRANCIS CHAN

Francis Chan 1

Este atâta instabilitate, atâtea lucruri pe care nu le înțelegem sau pe care nu le știm. Maturizarea mea a fost bruscă…

După cum știți, mama mea a murit imediat ce mi-a dat mie naștere. Tatăl meu s-a recăsătorit, iar mama vitregă a murit într-un accident de mașină când aveam 9 ani. Tatăl meu s-a recăsătorit din nou și a murit de cancer când aveam 12 ani. Eram un adolescent cu ambii părinți morți, iar singurele mele rude rămăseseră unchiul și mătușa mea, George si Sandra.

Când eram în liceu, într-o zi se certau. Unchiul meu George a împușcat-o pe mătușa în acea ceartă, apoi și-a pus arma l-a cap și s-a sinucis. Deci, aveam 16 ani și viața mea era într-un impas: “Ce va mai urma?”

Când totul în jur pare că se destramă, începem încet, încet să ne îngrijorăm, să ne speriem. Creștinii încearcă să-i slujească lui Dumnezeu, dar brusc lucrurile devin potrivnice, devin mai instabile și…..

FRANCIS CHAN, UN SLUJITOR GREU DE ÎNȚELES !?

Cred că visul oricărui pastor este să înceapă o biserică într-un oraș mare, cu un nume bun, să aibă o clădire cu toate condițiile necesare pentru a funcționa bine și relaxat. Dacă se poate, până se apropie de pensie, biserica să crească continuu (măcar 1000-1500 de membri). Apoi când se pensionează (dacă se pensionează) să poată lăsa o biserică urmașilor lui. SUNĂ FAMILIAR?
Desigur că aceste lucruri se întâmplă frecvent, celor care au făcut carieră din slujba și chemarea date de DUMNEZEU.

francis-chan-passion

Ei bine pastorul (slujitorul) Francis Chan, după 16 ani de slujire, ajunsese la peste 4000 membri și la o situație financiară de invidiat. Cu toate acestea se decide să părăsească biserica fără să aibă idee ce îl așteaptă în viitor, doar ca i s-a parut că devenise prea confortabil și apreciat în acest loc.
Cu aproape 5 ani în urmă, a facut acest lucru. Un exemplu de SLUJITOR (aproape unic), demn de urmat.
Asta da CREDINȚĂ !
Dar haideți să-l urmărim ce are el de spus.

Holy Spirit by Francis Chan

In BASIC. Holy Spirit, Francis Chan reminds us that God has given each of us the gift of the Holy Spirit, our source of supernatural power. But today the church acts neither „super” nor „natural.” So how do we join the move of what the Spirit is doing? Maybe once we understand who the Holy Spirit is, the church can stop being so ordinary, and can start being the agents of change in the world that God designed us to be.

Francis Chan: The Joy of Suffering – Biola University Chapel

Francis Chan speaks to the Biola  University students in 2009. One standout illustrative part is when he compares our memorizing Scriptures with an example of his daughter’s obedience. You can read about Francis Chan’s recent decision to step down from his church to move to San Francisco and work with the inner city here.

Here is an update (March 14th) from Francis Chan:

Our friends in Iran are still in prison, so please keep praying for them…  Some have been released but others are still suffering.  Much of their time is spent in solitary confinement.  Please Pray.  Here’s a link to read more: http://www.elam.com

As far as my life, things continue to go supernaturally well.  God has been showing me His grace and love constantly.  Lisa’s pregnancy is healthy and we are expecting our baby girl in May.  We continue to get more settled in San Francisco, however, I have been traveling so much that I still don’t feel like I have „moved” yet.

In regards to our adoption, some things have changed.  We are still in the process of adoption, but we have decided to pursue a sibling set through the foster system.  We found out that Isaac, the child from China, was also sought after by a wonderful Christian family.  Rather than „competing” for the same child, we thought it best to pursue other children that no one wanted.  We found out that around 500 children in California are in need of adoption every month!  You can be praying for us as we pursue this.  You can also be praying for yourself, as God may be calling you to do the same.

I am very excited about some writing projects I am currently working on.  One in particular is a discipleship project I am creating with David Platt.  We have both been deeply concerned with the fact that so few who attend church services are obeying the great commission and making disciples.  We are working on creating a free resource that would equip all lay people to make disciples.  I believe deeply that the future of the church in America depends largely in all believers doing the work of discipleship and placing less of a burden on paid staff.  I believe our best days are ahead.

One thing that I have been thanking God for lately is how much enjoyment I am finding in prayer, study of His Word, and telling others about Christ.  It has been little about discipline and work, and more about desire.  It is great

„Oh God, you are my God; earnestly, I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.”  Psalm 63:1to be in a season like this.

Francis and Lisa Chan revealing plan to leave church for inner city ministry (April 18, 2010)

Update #6 from Francis Chan

Constant Change!

Well, we moved to San Francisco last week…  I believe this is where God wants my family and me at this time.  We will spend the next few weeks learning about the various ministries in this area.  I want to be an encouragement to the different ministers out here.  Sometimes, we can too quickly start ministries and hurt existing ministries.  Due to our consumer mindset, people are prone to jump from church to church which weakens the church overall.  In a place where there is so little church presence, we can’t afford to harm her overall health.

The other big news that Lisa is pregnant and due in May!  We find out on Friday whether we’ll have our fourth girl or second boy!  Right now, we are in a two-bedroom apartment with the six of us.  We’re praying about the next step as it may get a little crazy with a newborn too.  We are also in the process of adopting Isaac (the boy from China I mentioned in an earlier update).  We doubt they will approve our living situation, so pray that God leads us in the right direction.

The family is doing really well.  God continues to bless us and lead us.  I am working on some projects that I believe can help the overall health of the church in America.  It’s too soon to talk about it now, but I would appreciate your prayers.

There is still a lot of unknown, but I love the peace of following Him in uncertainty!

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.  Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.”  Isaiah 26:3-4

Beyond Expectations (Update #5)

It has been an amazing couple of months as you probably saw from Lisa’s updates.  I don’t even know where to start.  Once again, God far exceeded my expectations.  He has a way of doing that…

Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us…   Ephesians 3:20

There is far too much to say.  I won’t even attempt to write down all of my thoughts, as that would take too long to read.  I prefer you spend that time in scripture.  So let me just throw out a few thoughts.

GOD is the love of my life.  While I enjoyed experiencing different cultures and meeting new people, I most enjoyed my time communing with God.  It doesn’t matter where I am or what I am doing.  Nothing beats conversing with the living God and watching Him answer prayer.

My family was able to experience exactly what I had hoped and more.  One of my goals as a parent is to show my kids how to live for eternity (Matt. 6:18-20).  I don’t want them to live for the things of this earth.  This was the first time they were able to enjoy not having a home and finding security in Christ.  While I tried to teach that our house was not our home, it is much easier to grasp that concept while homeless.

We have always been a pretty happy family, but we have never been this happy.  Our time at a children’s home in Thailand was probably our family favorite.  The typical day was wake up, have breakfast, serve and play with the kids during the day, and then worship with them in the evening.  Most nights Lisa and I would then stay up late with our oldest two talking, laughing, and praying.  I doubt they will ever forget this trip.

The church overseas was pretty much what I expected:  devoted and passionate.  Leaders in India explained that it makes no sense for a person to make a casual commitment to Jesus in a place where there is persecution.  Only a person who genuinely believes would endure the suffering that goes into being a Christian.  I was blessed for the chance to talk to people who were beaten for their faith.  Especially memorable were a couple women I met who were kicked out of their villages for following Christ.  Pregnant at the time, they gave birth in the jungle with only their husbands by their sides.  As they shared about the struggle to find food for their children, I realized I had nothing to ever complain about.

Speaking to underground church leaders in China was equally enlightening.  Most surprising to me was their response when I told them about “church” in America.  I did not expect the response I got when I explained how common it is for people to switch churches if they find another with better child-care, better music, or a more gifted speaker.  They laughed really hard.  It was weird.  It was like they thought I was joking.  It opened my eyes to the uniqueness of our situation.  Remember that India and China combined represent almost 40% of the world’s population.  The U.S. represents about 4%.  Too often I have looked at other cultures as being strange.  I forget that we are the minority.

Don’t get me wrong, not every “Christian” I met overseas was committed.  There were pockets of people who casually called themselves “Christian” in places where Jesus had become more socially acceptable.  For the most part, however, I loved the fellowship with believers who had experienced and endured far more than I have.

The future is still unclear at this point, but I am at total peace.  I am looking into a couple possible places to plant my family for the next few months.  While I am unsure of where I will be located, I am fairly certain of what God has called me to work on over the next few months.  It is both overwhelming and excitihttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBhqrtMqrv8&feature=player_embeddedng.  I will wait for the next update to explain all of that.

Thank you to those who prayed for my family.  I believe we are all closer to Jesus and more like Him as a result of the past few months.  I hope the same is true for you.
