When I began to walk deeper in the faith, I had it said to me that I was using it as a crutch for life!
But, is faith a crutch?
To me I will wholeheartedly say NO! Faith is not a crutch!
Faith is a way of living!
Faith is a relationship with God through believing in His only son Jesus Christ that He died for the sins of the world and was raised from the dead after 3 days. He spent timr with his disciples after he was resurrrd and ascended to the side of thr Father thus sending the Holy Spirit comforter to us in Hid place.
Some see that as living with crutch a crutch but it is so much more than that. It is having a divine connection through, prayer/meditation, worship, fasting, service unto the Creator our God.
He gave us free will to choose to love and live for him. God is a gentleman He could have built us to without free will choice, but he didn’t. He loves us!
He loves us so much to give His son as a ransom for us, so as to not see us apart from Him in eternity. He just lets us choose to love him in return.
Leaning in the everlastingness of who God really is, is more stable and secure than leaning on the rver changing world and its standard. Gods standard is firm that is a sure thing.
Having a life of faith isn’t a weakness, but of strength. Its a trust in what is unseen. Jesus himself even addressed it that it is more blessed of those who believe and haven’t seen.
So, why is faith seen as a crutch or weakness?
To be honest the answers are too vast and too many to get into and I won’t. But I want to encourage anyone that has faith in Jesus Christ to keep the faith and keep your confession of faith strong as it will be tested, even as you press on in faith it gets tested. Having faith does’t make life problem free it just helps you get through trials of life.
