An Extremely Dangerous Habit

Posted: February 16, 2011 in bible, christianity, francis chan, quotes

“I was warned when entering seminary that if I was not careful, a dangerous hait could form: I could learn to read the Bible and do nothing in response.  I still remember our seminary president warning us that study to the neglect of action becomes easier and easier with each occurence.  We should be terrified if we have mastered the art of becoming convicted and doing nothing in response.

– Francis Chan, from the forward to Under the Overpass: A Journey of Faith on the Streets of America by Mike Yankoski
