The barn isn't unique there. But when you hide behind God to cover your lies, and unethical tactics. when you pretend to be holier than others to protect the fact that your very existence is based on jealousy. God, karma, poetic justice, whatever you want to call it strikes back. Look at this week alone across the state. How symbolic was it that their dying symbol of tradition LITERALLY went up in flames. Follow that up with NCAA coming back and at least making life worrisome. Then ending the week serving as little more than a speed bump to watching your 2 biggest rivals compete for all the major championships. I'm not saying God favors us over them. What Im saying is, don't be the sleaziest program in the country and use God as a cover. A fall of Biblical proportions awaits you if you do. Good luck scrapping what's left of your program off the sidewalk.
TRADITION IS THE FOUNDATION GREAT PROGRAMS ARE BUILT UPON.
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
1) "To err is human." Your remarks appear to be very judgemental, in my view.
2) Not all Aubs are cheaters, or are aware of actual cheating taking place within their beloved athletic department.
3) I seriously doubt that of the subset of Aubs who are actually breaking the rules, many of same are going fourth and publicly stating that Auburn is God's Team.
4) God doesn't exercise His displeasure with sinners while we're on earth.
5) There's absolutely no such thing as "karma."
That is all.
No, not all aubs are cheaters, but everyone I came in contact with over the last few years have acted like we are evil, Saban is cold and uncaring, and that the U of A chews up kids without regard for their future. Meanwhile the same people have stuck their heads in the sand, ignoring mounting evidence that there are problems at auburn. These same people would paraphrase scam newton and blame the devil for "messin". Trusting the mouths of the likes of Pat Dye and Phillip Marshall rather than the arrest reports. Meanwhile the supposed evil doers have been flourishing. They're logic has been based on arrogance and the willing to believe lies because it served they're need to best us. I said in the origanal post I didn't think God chose sides. The existence of karma (or the interpretation) depends on your religous subset. I happen to believe in karma, but to each his own. My point was the majority of the auburn was more than happy to portray themselves as "Gods chosen team" while ignoring the obvious. I've heard how corrupt we supposedly are for years while they're "Gods" team? Bull. What goes around comes around, or every dog has his day, or ......karma.
"Once in awhile you get shown the light in the strangest of places you have to look at it right."
You say, "not all aubs are cheaters, but everyone I came in contact with over the last few years have acted like we are evil..." Now, that's an interesting contrast in sweeping statements.
I've interacted with scads of Auburnites over my life and I can't really recall having encountered one who even suggested that Bama people are "evil." I really can't. Perhaps my experience is truly that innocent, or perhaps my memory of events has been affected by my God-given ability to extend love, grace and forgiveness, which happens to be antithesis of holding out for revenge, pay-back, justice, getting even - all fundamental tenets of whatever belief is espoused by the "karma" crowd. Speaking of "karma," will you tell me in what authenticated religious text it spells out the actual meaning of that word? Can you do that - you know, back up your faith in that concept with something that is real? And, while you're at it, who really carries out and enforces the payback, whenever it ultimately "comes around?"
