Crazy Love Quote

Having faith often means doing what others see as crazy. Something is wrong when our lives make sense to unbelievers.
-Francis Chan, Crazy Love, p115

An obvious example? For 120 years Noah built an ark and warned others of a flood. People thought he was crazy.

I like the quote, but I was just thinking that this isn't always the case.

Mother T, MLK, Gandhi, while not universality agreed with, many unbelievers are saying these people lived good lives.

what do you think about those persons?

Agreed....Francis did say "often"

How many in our culture would say "living a good life" is moving to India to serve the dying???

But Gandhi and MLK also did some crazy stuff...we just don't think it's as crazy in retrospect.
