From the very beginning Adam blamed his wife for his bad decision and removal from the Garden of Eden and Eve did likewise and blamed the serpent. If the blame was valid God would have banished the serpent and all would have been the same. However, those living today know good and evil. So we know the blame was not valid and God judged mankind.
The knowledge of evil is not at all what Eve thought it would be. Today, there are approximately 45 million abortions per year worldwide. There are an estimated 27 million adults and 13 million children around the world who are victims of human trafficking. Cocaine use is the highest in North America, and it has 14 million to 21 million users worldwide. There are currently around 40 million prostitutes working worldwide. There are approximately 9 million (about 3.8%) of Americans identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.
For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few (Matthew 7:14).
Blaming others for faults that we have done may alleviate the present distress, seemingly, but there is another judgment day. Blaming your spouse for why you chose to cheat may work for your conscience, but judgment day is coming. Blaming the media and television for your crime, may appear adequate, but is it valid or will God judge it? Check yourself! Are you blaming the creditor for the loan you took out? Are you blaming the police officer that pulled you over for speeding? Are you blaming your children for acting ungodly? Who did God call to raise them? Someone else? Are you blaming me for telling the truth?
As a participant of the human race you have been chosen to act in a manner that gives God glory. Giving God glory will ensure your life leads to life everlasting. The statistics above are deplorable. Not surprising!
For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many (Matthew 7:13).
Christians (Christ followers) need to put off blaming. Take responsibility for your actions. If you call yourself a Christian and you do not pray, it is impossible for you to be a Christian.
If you love Me, you will keep My commands (John 14:15).
