Pass Me That Crutch

Hebrews 13:6 - So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” - More than once I've heard unbelievers say that Christians use "religion" as a crutch. I think that's the whole point of being one, because the entire human race is sinful and can't do anything on it's own to please God and needs a crutch. Like Christ said in John 15:5 -  ...apart from me you can do nothing - Even Christ was completely dependent on his father while he was here. Weakness is considered undesirable in most Earthly "wisdom", but God considers it a good thing for us. As the Apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 12:9 - ... I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me - . When God sent Christ to save us he provided a "crutch" to anyone who wants to use it.  whataboutjesus.com

Following Jesus is about him being our crutch.  We are program to think we can do it alone, without help.  God says we can lessen our load, that he has ordained our steps and when we surrender to his will our lives become less burdensome, our worries are less as are our fears.
  


"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."

Charles Carroll, signer of the DOI
