I’m watching the musical Company by Stephen Sondheim while prepping some potatoes for later, and just ran across a quote that spoke volumes to me:
“Married people are no more marriage than musicians are music- just because some of the people might be wrong doesn’t matter. It is still right.”
My immediate thought was of how this applies to those who condemn Christianity because of the way that some Christians act- we believers are certainly imperfect and badly flawed, but our mistakes do not invalidate the truth and reality of the Gospel, any more than the fact that some people (ME, for example) are terrible at playing piano invalidates all the beautiful pieces that have been written for that instrument.
Something to think about.
