It seems to me that the whole world is trying to find someone else to blame--anybody but ourselves.

Don't look at me. It's McDonald's fault or God's fault. But it's not my fault.

McDonald's fault that you're fat? "The truth is that in the vast majority of cases we just eat like pigs."

After Susan Smith pushed her car into the water with her children in it, she ran after it screaming, "Oh God! Oh God no!--Why did you let this happen?"

God is to blame?

"God let's us choose, and we do, and when our choices bring pain we blame him."

G.K. Chesterton was asked "What's wrong with the world?" He replied---"I am."


Too fat? Don't blame McDonalds.

Your poor choices bringing pain to your life? Don't blame God.

Who's to blame?  "It's me, it's me, O Lord..."

(The idea for this post and some of the thoughts are from James Emery White's excellent post on his blog, Church and Culture Blog, Vol. 6, No. 45)

this is such a sad state of affairs. Until we begin to take responsibility for ourselves and our actions and more importantly begin to teach our children to do so...we will continue to fall further and further away from God.
