I remember being in High School. My Aunt was a hard working lady who slaved away to support her child, she was a single parent. The baby’s father had left her alone to care for him and it was the 70’s, she worked hard. I remember her being promoted at work and Thanking God over and over again. I remember wondering Why she was thanking God? God can’t hear her. And God isn’t the one who worked his ass off for her to get that promotion. WHy couldn’t she give herself any credit for it?
Later, when tragedy struck, my same Aunt said “It was God’s will.” What the heck? He gets credit for everything good and blame for everything bad. Is there no personal responsibility here? No wonder religious people are crazy, it makes no fucking sense.
I can’t imagine how lost and hopeless life would be if I had no personal responsibility for my outcome, if everything lied at the hands of some God’s crazy whims, that are all part of a plan I dont’ know about.
Get a clue people- you’re making all of this up and it doesn’t even make sense.
