>THINKABOUTIT – Crutch or Stretcher?

>
I’ve been told my faith is a crutch…to which I reply, “No, man, if it were a crutch I’d be doing something to help; my faith in the Christ of the gospel is more like a stretcher…He does it all (“salvation is of the Lord)!”

Reading a tough book by Michael Horton titled “Christless Christianity” (Baker Books, 2008).

Here’s a quote that reminded me of the crutch/stretcher:

“…grace is primarily seen by evangelicals as much as by the medieval church as divine assistance for the process of moral transformation rather than as a one-sided divine rescue.”
