For most of us, the first step in finding God is confessing our inability to save ourselves, to find meaning in life, to find release from guilt, to be able to endure after one of life’s crushing blows.  Some people call Christianity a crutch.  Maybe the first step in finding God is to admit that Christianity is a crutch.  But to consider whether you – like me – may be suffering from a broken leg. — Stephen T. Davis (from, Christianity is a crutch…you may need it someday)
