The Church Is A Hospital

We've heard it a lot recently, the church is a hospital. The church was not intended for the perfect it was created for the broken. Though we've heard this and though at some level we know it is true I think most of us just can't get in our head that it is true.

People go to church and altar call comes and they feel judged and like the whole church is looking at them if they go up. But why? Seriously, it's not like anyone in that building is perfect. Does it really matter if they are looking at you? Compared to eternity, no.

I guess what I'm trying to say is if you broke your leg or you had been shot would you refuse to go to the hospital? No. Then why when you're broken spiritually would you not go to the altar, your spiritual hospital?

You are right. It's not supposed to be a "social club". It's a place to help your sick soul get well. And we all need a good dose of vitamin "J" .
