"And remember, when someone wants to do wrong it is never God who is tempting him, for God never wants to do wrong and never tempts anyone else to do it. Temptation is the pull of man's own evil thoughts and wishes."

~ James 1:13 & 14 LAB

Bible Commentary:  "It is easy to blame others and make excuses for evil thoughts and wrong actions. Excuses include:
* it's the other person's fault;
* I couldn't help it:
* everybody's doing it;
* it was just a mistake;
* nobody's perfect;
* the devil made me do it;
* I was pressured into it:
* I didn't know it was wrong;

"A person who makes excuses is trying to shift the blame from himself to something or someone else. A Christian, on the other hand, accepts responsibility for his wrongs, confesses them, and asks God for forgiveness."
