Bad Stuff and Good Stuff

The Bible says in the book of James that bad stuff is not from God, instead good stuff is from Him. Actually it says that every desirable and beneficial gift comes from God.

There is no evil in Him. He is not going to give us bad stuff, the bad stuff in our lives comes from someone else. It comes from us.

Lust. That emotion destroys lives without thinking twice. A fleeting glance at a party can lead to a passionate affair, which will lead to the destruction of a family. God does not throw beautiful women or men in front of you to check and see if you are strong enough to resist. We put those people in front of our own eyes. Television, Internet, print media, going to the beach. I make those choices, and I bear the responsibility for my own lust. Blaming God is just a away from me to avoid dealing with the issue myself. In my evangelical days I would not have felt safe blaming God so I blamed the Devil.

The Devil made me do it. He orchestrated the whole affair. He teamed up with his demons and planned to trip me up by placing that wallet right in front of me. He knew I needed the money, I cannot be held responsible. It was entrapment. As if the Devil, if there really is one, cares about you. I would think he had more pressing things to do, like running the White House. Oops that one slipped in past the censors.

There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle. He brought us to life using the true Word, showing us off as the crown of all his creatures.  James 1:18   The Message
