From the beginning of mankind, people have blamed others for their sins. One common temptation is to blame God for our sins. But is it wrong to blame God for my sin? Since God sends trials to test me isn't it His fault when I fall into temptation from that test?  James 1:13-15 (NIV) When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.  In Only 2 Minutes You Will Discover:The common belief at the time of this writing that persuaded James to write thisWhere temptation comes fromHow we are like fish when we sinWhat to do when you are temptedPLEASE help spread the Good News of the Gospel by subscribing AND leaving a review in your favorite podcasting app!
