Nutbags

Why is it that churches attract all the nutbags?
Someone told me this blog attracts a lot of nutbags....they are probably right, you are reading this aren't you???? :) And I am at times the nuttiest of the lot!!!!

Maybe its because thats the job of the church, to attract all those that can't find a home somewhere else. To attract those who others have labelled and written off.

Who are you calling a nutbag? ;)

Nah seriously my mum (who isn't Christian) used to say that churches are crutches for those who can't/won't help themselves. She meant it in a critical/derogatory way but sometimes this can be true. Christians acknowledge that they can't help themselves and therefore need a Saviour.

They have a point. All those Dockers supporters. It's scary.

But seriously, humanism, which has to believe that everyone has the ability to make something of their life, doesn't really have a place for the weak, or the humble. Ironically, it's in becoming small that we become great! 'Fortunate are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.'

I think their is a bit of nuttiness in all of us we just feel safe to express it a bit more in church :-)
