God helps those who help themselves.

You have three choices
- Help yourself, god helps you = stuff gets done
- Help yourself, god doesn't help you = stuff gets done
- Don't help yourself, god doesn't help you = stuff doesn't get done
That phrase kinda forbids the act of god helping you if you don't help yourself.

There's an interesting and DIRECT correlation between helping yourself and stuff getting done.
Additionally, this is an unnecessarily selfless phrase in which one gives God the credit for something that he or she did themselves.

Of course this phrase isn't even in the bible so my interpretation should not upset anyone.

  1. the idea that god helps those who help themselves is used for the soul purpose of manipulating the minds of christians into giving god credit for everything goood in there lives. its also a way of defending god from blame when something bad happens in a christians life. if something bad happens to a christian,or if a atheist mentions bad things that happen to people they can just say "well its your own fault if something bad happens to you,cause god helps those who help themselves,so i guess you screwed up and didn't try hard enough".
