Almost all denominations say that their church is “a hospital for sinners.”
Do you know if this is an accurate statement?
You may surprised to find out that church is really an army for soldiers not an hospital for sinners.
For a long time I have heard people say, “The church is a hospital for sinners.” When I recently checked the internet I found out that famous people past and present like C.S. Lewis, and even Abigal Van Buren (“Dear Abby”) have said it. I also noted that many denominations use the statement: Baptist, Lutherans, Presbyterians, Catholics, Methodists and Seventh-day Adventists.
It is so accepted that I began to wonder where the statement came from originally. The exact statement is this: “The Church is not a museum for saints but a hospital for [recovering] sinners."
