Christianinty shouldn’t make sense…

“Something is wrong when our lives make sense to unbelievers.”

This sentence has been haunting me for two days now. Francis Chan said it. And I have been thinking, meditating, and praying on it sense I read it. It has blown me away. Revolutions never make sense to those against them. To those who want no part of them. Jesus was a radical. An extreme radical. The things he did made absolutely no sense to the majority of people that were around him. So when you are going all out for God and your dreams and visions are so radical that someone looks you in the eyes and says your dreams make no sense, maybe we should say thank you.

  1. Ah, but it does make sense. It makes sense why people believe it, it’s just absurd to do so. It’s all too predictable to me that people accept propositions that cater to the imperfections of the human mind and to the emotions that lie as the underpinning of that mind. It makes sense that they accept a story which is compelling and powerful. I would go as far as to say that many non-believers understand Christianity all-to-well; especially the ex-Christians.

  2. Shaun,
    thanks for commenting. i was really trying to point out that we, as Christians, are suppose to Love to a degree that just does not make any sense at all. That we are sppose to throw all of the rules and stereotypes away and just Love. Period. Without an angle. Again thaks for sharing and take care!
