The Devil Did Not Make You Do It!
THE DEVIL DID NOT MAKE YOU DO IT; GOD DID NOT MAKE YOU DO IT; YOU DID IT
Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death. James 1:13-15
The word, “tempted” is a word that means to entice. God does not allow us to be enticed (tempted) beyond what we are able to endure. All temptation is common to all men. No one experiences a trial that is unique. 1Cor.10:13
It is not a sin to be tempted. Jesus was tempted in ALL THINGS the same way that we are. Heb.4:15, Heb.2:18 Prior to the coming of Christ we had an excuse for sin. It was a time of ignorance. Acts 17:30
But now the light has come to ALL men. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. John 15:22
