What you can’t scare into people

Posted: May 24, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship

“Heaven is not a place for those who are afraid of hell; it’s a place for those who love God. You can scare people into coming to your church, you can scare people into trying to be good, you can scare people into giving money, you can even scare them into walking down an aisle and praying a certain prayer, but you cannot scare people into loving God. You just can’t do it.”

– Matt Chandler, “The Explicit Gospel”(49)
