Stop Blaming God, Satan, & Other People for Our Sin

Far too many times, I hear people blaming God, Satan, and other people for their own sinful choices, especially when they get caught doing something wrong. We have to stop blaming everyone else for our own sinful decisions, own those failures as our own, repent of our evil choices, and start doing what God says we should be doing, instead.

James 1:13-22
13  Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
14  But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15  Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
16  Do not err, my beloved brethren.
17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
18  Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.    
19  Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
20  For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
21  Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
22  But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

If you're not sure how to proceed after reading that, then take a look at this blessed message that has helped millions of people throughout the ages.
