Driscoll and Harris on Chan

Mark Driscoll and Joshua Harris tagteam to inquire more on Francis Chan’s motivations for stepping down from Cornerstone Church, Simi Valley, CA to L.A.  Chan says his desire is motivated by love to give and sanctification, which includes poverty, suffering, and simplicity. I get the sense he believes the church is not where it should be and he wants the church to move back to the core truths as found in Scripture.

… and more on Francis’ spirituality of suffering below. I haven’t heard this kind of message from any pulpit for a very very long time. Sounds like it’s a forgotten path of Jesus that we North American Christians ought to return to.

  1. I fond it curious that the big name church leaders call for a return to Biblical Christianity, yet much of what the Western church does doesn’t resemble the Biblical example, or at least from the way I read it. It is refreshing, though, to hear from and see the example of people like Francis Chan. There’s hope for the church yet!
