Christianity a Crutch?

Many people will say that Christianity is a crutch, or that Christ is a crutch for the weak. I would agree that Christ is a crutch. I would argue that anything can be a crutch. It could be drugs, money, relationships, fashion, sex, or whatever helps you to feel happy or content. So yes, I have a crutch and his name is Jesus. Many have a crutch who isn’t Jesus. They may not think about it that way, but it is what it is. The real question is, will the crutch you are using help you to heal? At the end of your life will you be able to say that the crutch you used healed you?

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.
