“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.” – Romans 5:12
It started in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve, but it is growing in popularity with each passing day. Seems like everyone today is playing the blame game– no one wants to take responsibility for their sins. Adrian Rogers put it like this:
“Some would say that man is but the sum total of his environment and his body chemistry. If he does wrong, it’s because he’s like a computer that has been programmed wrongly. If he was raised in a bad neighborhood, he shouldn’t be blamed for breaking into stores or smoking dope. Or if he has a vile temper, perhaps he had an overbearing mother.
According to psychologists, these unfortunate souls may be pitied but not blamed. They may be sick, but they’re not sinful. They may be weak but not wicked. They need guidance but not salvation. But these social evaluators are wrong!
Are you blaming others? Or taking responsibility and coming to the Cross? Let me sum it up this way: life is short; death is sure; sin is the cause; and Christ is the cure.”
