Declarations…..Francis Chan

“Do you know that nothing you do in this life will ever matter, unless it is about loving God and loving the people He has made” – Francis Chan

And this is why I believe that any good works you do to either gain salvation, or that you just do outside of faith in Jesus Christ, are not really good works at all but are sinful works. Any good that you do to try to earn salvation, is not motivated by love for God or His people, it is motivated by selfishness. It is, “if I do this, look what I’ll get back from it: salvation!”. Also, any good that you do apart from Jesus is (90% of the time) for you own benefit, image, or just pride and is therefore not a good work, but a bad one! Man is born evil, therefore apart from love (and love is given by God and defined by God) he can do no good.

About Hudson

I live in Indiana. I enjoyed playing soccer all four years of high school. I co-captained and won the MVP award my senior year. I also have created many film projects, the most extensive of which won a film festival award for Best Cinematography during my senior year. It is a 10-minute short film called Café Encounter and can be watched on YouTube. I have been actively involved in my youth group and am a leader for a middle school boys group on Sunday mornings. I was also blessed to go on two mission trips to Belize and Ecuador respectively. Belize really awakened my faith in Christ and pushed me towards active obedience and love for God. Ecuador gave me a life-changing perspective on missionary work and has helped me to view myself as a missionary in my every day life, but especially with the intent of being a missionary to my work industry.
