So maybe Christianity / the Christian family, can be a crutch, that is, after you have embarked on the Christian challenge/adventure. It is there to help you to learn to walk again after you get injured from what it actually is: a great adventure.
Warning: Remain sensible in your grand adventure, if you choose to accept it. Consult the instruction/documentation manual, the Bible regularly. Train/observe/learn/listen with/ /from/to experienced elders. Communicate with God through prayer, unceasingly.
