Exactly right. I've encountered to many theistic people where their christian worldview has become a source of enablement for their dysfunction. Why focus on getting your "worldly" life in order when you believe it to be only a transient stage. Instead of taking responsibility for their situation now, they daydream about some future life where their mythical deity will take care of everything for them.
