I've heard it said, "Religion is a crutch for emotionally weak people."

The fact is that is partly true.  If by religion, you mean my faith and trust in God and His Word and His Spirit, then yes, it is indeed a crutch.  However,  you are wrong on this one point:  I am not emotionally weak.  In fact, I have been made emotionally stable through my faith.  It is my enduring faith which makes me constantly able to emotionally handle the trials of life; trials that would come whether I was a believer or not.

I find many people who claim 'no religion', have nothing to support them when they need it.  While they would claim to have friends or family or even their own strength to push them through, the truth is that all of that worldly support pales in comparison to the Power of God in the life of a believer.  At times, even, you will find the faithless calling on the faithful, to pray for them.  In doing so, you have made MY religion YOUR crutch.  Hypocrite!

Only time will tell the truth of the matter.  In the end, we will all know the truth.  My crutch works for me.  Your lack of a crutch leaves you whining in the storm.
