Letter: Christianity is not crazy

From a Christian perspective, there’s so much to be said about our spiritually collapsing world and our failing nation, which holds far more credence to “separation of church and state” than church itself. (By the way, separation of church and state is not in the Constitution.)

But more to the point, I want to share a true story told by a pastor on the radio. It won’t be verbatim but the context and conclusion is similar.

An ungodly man turned from his wicked ways and became right with the Lord. He began sharing his life experiences with others, noting that during his years of immoral living and alcoholism, no one ever said he was crazy. Likewise, when sinking into drug addictions, no one accused him of being crazy. Eventually his marriage fell apart, ending in a bitter divorce, yet nothing was mentioned about being crazy. However, when sharing his conversion (salvation in Christ) with an acquaintance, the man’s response was, “You’re crazy!”

I believe this thought process is not all that uncommon and speaks volumes as to why wickedness and ungodliness rules virtually everywhere.

President John Adams, a man of great wisdom, said “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Sadly, I believe that too many Americans today would consider Adams crazy as well.
