Ha! I loved this bit of satire from the Babylon Bee. Well done.
‘I Know God Forgives Me, But I Can’t Forgive Myself,’ Says Woman Whose Moral Compass Is More Developed Than God’s
Pride sure is a funny thing, isn’t it? It’s not always what it seems. It can cloak itself in shame, false humility, even virtue. I love what he did here, “her incredibly developed sense of morality which eclipses even God’s,” and her “ability to properly appropriate guilt and punishment supersedes even that of the Creator and Sustainer of the entire universe.”
That is exactly what we are doing every time we disagree with what God has said about us, every time we cling to bits of shame, every time we fail to forgive our own selves.
