Today at Walmart I was at the self-checkout, almost home free, when a Hispanic man approached me and asked where was my mask. He did not have on a uniform but I saw he was holding a walkie-talkie, suggesting he was a security guard.
I said, "I don't wear one."
"You don't want to or you have a condition?"
"Condition," I replied. Then he left me alone. Problem is I don't have a legitimate condition that prevents me from wearing the mask. I have a condition called being a human being which requires me to breathe in fresh air, but the context in this situation was him asking if I had a medical condition. Therefore I lied to him, which is a sin, and what surprises me is how quickly my corrupted instinct wanted to lie to prevent an escalation in the confrontation that would lead to discomfort. I fought evil with evil. If you have to sin to resist, you should reconsider.
Next time I will say, "No, I don't have a condition" and then deal with the repercussions.
Oppositional Defiance Disorder. It’s a real medical diagnosis and sounds to me like you have it.
