Is religion, Christianity, worth having for people with disabilities?

When I was a young kid I went to church every Sunday with my mom.

I was always told by my mom and grandma that I needed to praise god; I was also told not to say God’s name in vain.

I was raised as a Christian. I always thought as a child that when you’re a Christian that your have to be a good person and treat people with love. To help people that are less fortunate than you. As I got older, I started to think differently. As I looked around me, watching and meeting people that considered themselves Christians, I thought they weren’t precisely god-like.

There are a few things I noticed about Christians and the church itself. Those that do consider themselves Christians are Christians because they need to feel good about themselves, not because they want to be a better person.

As a person with a disability, I found some people stuck up. If they were not stuck up, they felt sorry for you because you have a disability.

I got to say I never bought into the whole church atmosphere and Christianity itself.

If God is real, then why can’t we talk to him?

I feel like Christianity and religion is very bipolar.

Christians will admit that they don’t always follow what’s in the Bible and only follow certain things that are in the Bible, which defeats the purpose of being a Christian in the first place.

I feel like Christianity is one of the things that holds people with disabilities back.

Why do Christians say don’t judge but yet they judge other people?

Another way of looking at the church is that it’s not suitable for women because they don’t have rights like men do, according to the Bible.

Another reason why I don’t like going to church is that they get money off of people that feel like they have to give money to churches because God said so does not make any sense whatsoever to me.

A good portion of people with disabilities that go to church are on a fixed income and can’t afford to give their money away like that however they are expected to, and if they don’t, they’re frowned upon. It does not seem right.

People with disabilities do what makes you feel comfortable. I know where I stand.
