Not in terms of from the get go. But I have a lot of friends that I grew up with, that were fucking junkies, couldn't control themselves, and somewhere along the line, after I left town, somehow got to rehab, one, two, maybe three times, and eventually cleaned up, and all of a sudden found Jesus, or some god and post bible verses or some shit all the damn time.
My gripe, where the fuck was god when you lied, cheated, and stole to support your habit? You think that shit will grant you access to "heaven" just because you believe now? I'm sick of it. Self control is NOT god. It's something you're supposed to have been born with, and just because you went through your own personal hell, and decided to credit god with bringing you out... Fuck, I'm just really riled up about it right now.
My argument is definitely not with god. I respect all beliefs, although Christianity, and any Jesus religion are the ones I least respect, I still acknowledge their existence. But they seem to always be the ones that junkies, murderers, convicts all turn to.
I'm just sick of seeing all these people do "all the devils" work, and just think because they are sober for the first time, they're not deep inside the same person they always were. Redemption is earned, it's not just granted because you can quote a fucking bible verse.
tl;dr : I know too many "reformed" junkies that are bullshit people.
EDIT: These people don't actually do anything that deserves redemption, they LITERALLY just post bible verses about their sobriety and forgiveness... If you get sober, and actually do something to redeem your past behavior, fine, awesome. And by the way, I'm not sober, I have my vices, I was just born with self control.
EDIT 2: Also, I believe, after a certain age, you don't deserve anymore chances. These people I'm talking about are always past 21 when they "find themselves" or whatever bullshit reason they give. These are people that have been given 100 chances by their parents, teachers, friends, neighbors, etc. And all of a sudden, they find "god" and they're cool with themselves? No, you should have a deep seeded root of shame of the life you've lived. I was once a fucking shithead, but I always had my self control, and I was always self aware, and I never treated anyone else like shit due to my habits. Fuck.
