It's Everybody Else's Fault

by David J. Stewart | January 2016

Genesis 3:12-13, “And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.”

       The Bible teaches that all human beings have a sin-nature. This was inherited from Adam, when he chose to sin. Romans 5:12, “Wherefore, as by one man [Adam] sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.” When wrong, a mature Christian has learned to say, “It's nobody's fault but mine!” My friend, you've got no one to blame but yourself for most of the problems and miseries in your life, and the same is true of me and everyone else. We dig our own graves!

Adam blamed Eve. Eve blamed the serpent (Satan). Wouldn't it have been admirable if any one of them would have said, “I am guilty. I have no one to blame but myself.” Although it was true that Eve tempted Adam, and the serpent tempted Eve, God had commanded Adam and Eve not to eat of the forbidden fruit (Genesis 3:1-5). If someone tempts you to commit sin, God will hold them accountable, you can be assured; but you yourself didn't have to succumb to their wickedness, because God told YOU not to sin! If you violate the Holy Scriptures, you have no one to blame except your own sinful self. When I sin, I only do so because I CHOSE to sin.

I hear women blaming others for their divorces and abortions, but they have no one to blame but themselves. No one makes you sign the divorce papers. If you received bad counseling, then you're stupid. You made the bad decision. Just like the serpent beguiled Eve, so also will many well-meaning people destroy your marriage if you're weak enough to let them. At Christmas time, they'll still be with their spouse, and you'll be all alone, for listening to their hateful advice. I've learned in life that people love to mind other people's business instead of their own. It's exciting to critics to meddle, to destroy, to harm others. But when the damage is done, at the end of the day, YOU PAY, not them! I hope you'll never file for divorce, because it is a sin.

I heard a woman say that she got an abortion because her mother pressured her to get it. Ultimately, only you (if you're a woman) can make that decision. It's God's body, which He has entrusted to you (both your body and the baby's body). If you get an abortion, murdering your child, then you have no one to blame but yourself. There wouldn't be an abortion problem in America if people wouldn't commit sexual immorality. I speak to both immoral men and women. It is no coincidence that The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, Elton John, and hundreds of other famous Rock groups were introduced into America culture. These bands were the work of Communist infiltrators, who intended to corrupt American culture, and it sure has in just three generations. This is how homosexuality came to be accepted in the United States. We've gone from a nation of Bible-believing churches in 1940 to a sicko degenerate culture of perverts, killers, rapists, child predators, satanists, homosexuals and adulterers in 2016. Immorality abounds in America today! The Holy Bible is banned in our nations' schools. What fool could ask why our country is in the mess it's in today? The reason is blatantly obvious... WE HAVE FORSAKEN THE GOD OF THE HOLY BIBLE!!!

We have no one to blame but ourselves for going along with the New World Order. We are to blame, for tolerating the Devil's filth. We are to blame for not doing enough to bring the criminals controlling our nation today to justice. I long for the day, and their day of reckoning is soon coming, when the wicked will be judged by God in eternity! No one ever gets away with anything. Jesus warned in Mathew 12:36 that God will hold men accountable even for their words. If someone has hurt you, conspired to mistreat you, or in any way do you wrong (even if to just embarrass you or ruin your day), God will hold them accountable (Romans 12:19; Proverbs 24:12). If God notices each sparrow that falls from the sky (Matthew 10:29), and He numbers the very hairs on our head (Matthew 10:30), and he knows the number of stars in the universe and calls each of them by their individual name (Psalms 147:4), do you think that same omnipotent and omniscient God doesn't notice or care when someone tries to blame you for their mistakes, or mistreat you, or stereotype you to discredit you? Not a chance!!!

The Lord warned that we had better forgive others, if we expect to be forgiven. I speak to believers, because if you're not a born-again Christian in Christ Jesus, you can NEVER be forgiven (Acts 4:10-12). ...

Matthew 7:1-5, “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.”

We are all imperfect, sinful, human beings. I condemn no one for their sins. I've been hurt by many people throughout life, most of whom would likely do evil against me again if given the chance; but God will be their only judge (James 4:12; Romans 14:10-12). I am the biggest sinner that I know, and I'm not proud of that. If you're honest and right with God, then you ought to feel the same, because you know yourself better than anyone. My heart's desire is to live for the Lord, and to depart from sin all my days. Yet, as the Apostle Paul said in Romans 7:14-25, when I would do good evil is present with me.

Until we learn as Christians to accept responsibility for our sins and wrongs, we will never grow in the Lord. END
