Temples of the Living God

Christianity built massive and gorgeous cathedrals, towering over their culture showcasing their beauty and Christian symbols. Many of these cathedrals were so big, however, that they their roofs simply could not support themselves. Because of this, these cathedrals relied on big exterior extensions, known as flying buttresses, to support their roofs. This made me wonder how many of us our more like these cathedrals than Solomon's temple. Depending on other things to hold us up, such as pastors, family, friends, activities, or ministries.
