“Even if you’ve been coming for years or grew up in the church or whatever else, I have this fear that some of you, or possibly many, many of you — are going to hell. It keeps me up at night. … Do you understand the reality of what I said? I’m talking about hell. Have you heard that word so many times that you’ve just grown numb to it? Eternal punishment. So what in the world am I doing up here then? And again, I sure hope you don’t see this as, ‘Oh Francis is up there judging the congregation saying he’s saved’ — I’m not saying that. I’m saying I’m willing to bet some of you would leave this room and say it about yourself, that you are lukewarm — meaning you’ll be spit out of the mouth of God and cast into the fires of hell. That’s all I’m saying, is what you would say about yourself. And it blows me away that some of you won’t do anything.”
— Francis Chan, Lukewarm and Loving It
