Many pastors are this way too: “Everything is awesome, ha, ha, ha;” even though, the presence of God can’t even be felt anymore.
“God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
“Everything is not awesome. And there is this cultlike mentality out there that if you just say ‘everything’s awesome’ and live in denial you’ll be okay. Almost everybody I know who’s had kids that commit suicide, almost everybody I know who’s had horrible stuff happen in their lives live in denial, and say ‘everything is awesome’ — and will tell their friends and family and others ‘good job,’ when they haven’t done a good job.”
