I thought it was kinda funny because the gut is driving a brand new truck. So obviously he has some money.
Anyway I posted the picture and said I get the message but wtf? I don't see the good lord paying my bills. Haha cute though.
I get a message from my idiot brother in law saying your wrong. God is the reason your husband is here. He is the reason your husband has a job and can make money to pay those bills. So yes Jesus saves, money don't.
I replied with well I guess your more optimistic than me then
He says oh no ma'am I'm a christian and a believer.
I said OK. I consider myself a christian but I am also of the mind set that you have a certain responsibility for your own life. God is not going to do everything for you. You kinda have to do for yourself.
His response was Philippians 4:13 (I believe) I can do anything thru god who strengthens me.
I just replied with I keep a plate by my sink that has that verse on it. Its a favorite of mine and I see it every day while I'm doing dishes. :)
Then my other bils wife starts in on how I couldn't even do for myself if it wasn't for god providing for me. If not for god I wouldn't have anything. I am not responsible of my own life. God is in charge of everything.
Then my own aunt was like amen! Your right god is good and he knows all. He provides for his children. He takes care of us and he controls our lives.
I'm just like wtf.... With that logic I can shoot my husband and say god made me do it. He's responsible for me. And everyone would have to be like you that's true. The good lord does all.
Seriously? Idiots like this are why I don't take my kids to church. I'd rather them grow up thinking for themselves instead of having one christian thought pushed on them all their lives. I seriously want to slap them all. Omg.
