How the ‘Blame Game’ got started:
Regardless of the position you hold about the BIBLE, it will NEVER change anything that’s written in the 66 Books. Every word remains cast in stone, and permanently fixed. It’s FINAL whether you accept it or query it.
Let’s see who started the ‘Blame Game.’
Serpent/Satan : “Do I understand that God told you not to eat from ANY tree in the garden?” 🤔
Woman: “NOT at all. We CAN eat from the trees in the garden. It’s ONLY about the tree in the middle of the garden that GOD SAID, ‘DO NOT eat from it; DO NOT even touch it OR you’ll die.’”
Serpent/Satan: You won’t die. God knows that the moment you eat from that tree, you’ll see what’s really going on. You’ll be just like God, knowing everything, ranging all the way from good to evil.” 🤔
🤔 When the Woman looked at tree, she took and ate the fruit and then gave some to her husband, and he ate.
When they heard the voice of God, they hid from God.
🤔🤔🤔🤔 God: “Where are you?”
Adam: “I heard you in the garden and I was afraid because I was naked. And I hid.”
God: “Who told you that you were naked? Did you eat from that tree I told you not to eat from?”
Adam: “THE WOMAN 🤔 you gave me as a companion, she gave me fruit from the tree, and, yes, I ate it.”
🤔🤔🤔🤔 God to the Woman: “What is this that you’ve done?”
Woman: THE SERPENT 🤔 seduced me, and I ate.”
Genesis 3:1-13 MSG
THIS IS HOW THE ‘BLAME GAME’ got started. Here are my thoughts:
🤔 If someone refuses to take responsibility for their action, they will always try to blame others for their consequences.
🤔 There’s actually an expiry date for blaming parents. It’s the moment someone is old enough to say, “This is my life and I will make my own mistakes and learn from them” the responsibility becomes theirs.
🤔 We live in a culture of blame. People will blame God, their parents, exes, or anyone, or anything before taking responsibility and simply trying to do better.
Regardless of the opinion anyone of us has about the BIBLE or GOD, it will NEVER CHANGE ONE WORD that was written in the 66 Books.
Deuteronomy 30:19-20 NIVUK says,
“This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses.
Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him.
For the Lord is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”
In closing, we can spend our entire life blaming everyone and everything for our current circumstances, but our successes or failures are entirely our own.
Being a Christian doesn’t change what we deal with every day, BUT it definitely changes how we deal with it.
