The Church is the Only Institution

The Christian Church is the only institution on earth whose first requirement of its members is that they be failures that have offended God and deserve his judgment. Jesus, when asked why he spent so much time with “tax collectors and sinners” stressed, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick…. For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners” (Matthew 9:12-13). Is Christianity a crutch? Sure. A badly needed crutch given by God for spiritually crippled people like us—people who need to be reconciled to our Father in heaven.  ^DG
