The Arrogance Of Dressing Up Jesus

Francis Chan on believing we can make Jesus more attractive through hiding who he is.

Here’s what I had to repent of: I had felt the need to soften a lot of Jesus’ statements, because in my arrogance I think, “Okay Jesus, I’m not going to say that like that. Trust me, people will like you more and be more willing to accept you if I say it like this.”

…I know I have backed away from certain things because of my arrogance I thought I could attract more people to Jesus by hiding certain things about him.” I had to confess my arrogance.
