Thank you for your blog on [Francis} Chan’s book Crazy Love. I just finished reading it and felt very disturbed and afraid. Something I don’t think God would want you to feel when trying to get closer to Him. I am struggling with some sins in my life but am making an effort to find fellowship and help from fellow Christians. I just thought it was wrong of Chan to say you aren’t saved if you aren’t doing certain things for God. I personally think God is the only one who knows about someones salvation and it’s not for any man to decide, even if he thinks it’s Biblical. What I am trying to say is you have helped me see what Chan was truly portraying, the whole Lordship Salvation belief. I feel so much better now and I truly do believe that Jesus died for us on the cross to save us from our sin and nothing we do or don’t do can change our salvation if we believe and accept that. So thank you again and God Bless you both :)
Dear Readers, please pray for Bethany as she studies God’s Word and tries to find a good Bible fellowship of other discerning believers in Christ. Pray she may gain more assurance of her salvation from God’s Word, in Jesus Christ alone.
