“The Devil Made Me Do It!”
Colossians 2:6-15 (NLT)
- Human Thinking
Yes, the devil and his demons tempt us to sin. But “the devil made me do it” is far too often used to excuse our own bad choices.
Genesis 3:12 (NLT)
James 1:13-15 The Passion Translation (TPT)
13 When you are tempted don’t ever say, “God is tempting me,” for God is incapable of being tempted by evil and he is never the source of temptation. 14 Instead it is each person’s own desires and thoughts that drag them into evil and lure them away into darkness. 15 Evil desires give birth to evil actions. And when sin is fully mature it can murder you!
