The Coward’s Excuse
A religious regurgitation of someone else’s Facebook posting by a former coworker.
What She Said [Verbatim]
“…we must not let things we cannot control have power over us because our worry & pain will only hender [sic] our spirit. Things will always happen but let the Lord be your guide, through all things & know that ‘IT IS A SET UP’ for your blessings in the future. Stay faithful & strong in the Lord & b…e [sic] in your word daily, He will guide you through all things”
What She Really Meant
“I am emotionally weak and incapable of accepting any unpleasantness in life, and I refuse to accept any responsibility for my inability to deal with such unpleasantness by claiming lack of control. I must delude myself into believing that god lays down the shit in life as a set up for some future reward for those who remain faithful. I am a coward and believe that god will reward me for it.”
