Examples of crippled in a Sentence

  1. Henry David Thoreau:

  3. Henry Hon:

    There are about fifty-six incidences of the phrase 'one another' in the New Testament in relation to members being in the body. The term means that believers should not only wait for someone to help them, to do something for them, but that each believer has the responsibility to help and do something for another. This is the mutual giving and receiving in the body. This is the body life, where each and every member functions in the body...Without every member of the body functioning, the body will be crippled or handicapped. No matter how little or how much, every believer needs to do their part to support and supply other members in the body.

  4. Aurangzeb Khan:

  5. David Pilgrim:

    And, then, the old man preached about the daily indignities of the old south— insulting stereotypes and caricatures that portrayed us as buffoons, butlers, and beasts; lies about our morality and worth, some told by preachers who said we had no souls, that we wore the Curse of Ham; backbreaking toil, often forced by law, the fruit of our labor on another man’s plate; poverty that warped, crippled, and everywhere premature death; our voices silenced by poll taxes and literacy tests; schooling in raggedy shacks with tattered books because education would spoil us for work in the fields; cuffed, chained, and caged, for crimes both real and imagined; our soldiers killed in their uniforms, their medals stripped; our businesses, churches, schools, and homes burned to the ground when we progressed too much; our women and children raped; everywhere the barbarism of color discrimination followed us, enveloped us, and when all else failed, there were sadistic cowards with ropes and pyres to kill us, kill our bodies, to try and end us. But, we did not end.
