I know it will be but little comfort to those who have already been burned by a misappropriation of the passage, but it was not about "bearing up" under adversity, it was about not giving in to sin/idolatry when others would tempt you to sin with them. Jesus was the "way of escape" so that a person did not have to fall back into idol worship.
No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it. Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. (1 Corinthians 10:13-14)
