I’ll Never Understand

There are some things I will never understand in life, and while I know that intellectually, it does not make it any easier.

I do not understand how people can attend a conference stating how wonderful it was, how they grew in relationship with the Lord, give a testimony to the congregation about how they grew and what they learned and yet a few weeks later state how they and their significant other are at a graduation party already drunk.

I’ll never understand.

    It’s called hypocrisy. Everyone wants to fit in; to be a part. They may have addictions. Alcoholism is a disease.

      I do think it is hypocrisy…even worse is the fact that this girl put herself in role of mentor for another girl.

      I do want to make it clear that I do not believe this young adult is an alcoholic or has an addiction. And it is possible that perhaps she said she was drinking when she was not in order to make herself look cool. Even if that is the case, it is still a bad witness. God does not care if we we are cool, popular or with the “in” crowd. In fact, He wants us to go against the flow of the world, not with it.
