Francis Chan Tells Christians: The Only Way To Be Relevant Is To Be Rejected

Why are Christians losing the culture war? Why are we finding ourselves more and more on the fringe and attacked? Some would say that it is because our increasingly wicked culture. But what helped us get here? Have Christians played a part? Francis Chan, beloved pastor of Cornerstone Community Church and author of "Crazy Love", says that Christians have become obsessed with being liked, reports the Christian Post.

Chan spoke to thousands of Christians gathered at the National Mall in Washington D.C. last week. He read them Matthew 10:38-39: "And whoever does not take his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me." Chan said, "I think the biggest challenge in this generation is what we just read. In a generation that is obsessed with popularity and being liked and getting 'Likes', Jesus says the way to become significant and to have an impact is through rejection."

Chan admitted to the crowd that the church in America needed a "reset." "I think we all can agree that the church needs a reset in a lot of ways. We have become somewhat irrelevant, sadly. But the path to relevance is not trying to fit in. It's by standing out. It's not by becoming popular but by becoming rejected."

What do you think? Do you agree with Chan? Let us hear your thoughts in the Comments! Thank you!
