BLAME: Satan and Blame

Satan, devil, demon

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”
–1PETER 5:8

Though the devil takes a LOT of blame for the wickedness which men do, it is not known of ANY TIME where Satan has ACCEPTED the blame for his machinations.

Mostly, man blames Satan for the wickedness which springs from his own heart and Satan blames ANYONE or ANYTHING–but himself.

With this in mind, here are FIFTEEN things the world says about BLAME–which likely apply to Satan, that archdeceiver, called by Jesus Christ “the father of lies.”

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
–John 8:44

HOW MANY of the following quotes by the world does the reader believe applies to SATAN?

“Keep your distance from people who never admit they are wrong and who always try to make you feel like everything’s your fault.”
–seen at several Internet sites

“Blame is just a lazy person’s way of making sense from chaos.”
Douglas Coupland

“We live in a culture of blame. People will blame anyone or anything for their misery sooner than take the responsibility to own it and make it better.”
–Dr. Henry Cloud; Dr. John Townsend

“When people are lame, they love to blame.”
Robert Kiyosaki

“When we blame, we give away our power.”
–Greg Anderson

“Never argue with(or blame)  someone who believes their own lies.”
–attributed to many, none proven

“I pay no attention whatever to anybody’s praise or blame. I simply follow my own feelings.”
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

“Blame is fascinating – it shapes our lives. It can be a benign way of positioning ourselves, a gentle joust or banter, or it can be poisonous, hurtful or devastating for its victims. It can tear apart marriages and fracture work relationships; it can disable major social programmes; it can inflict damage on powerful corporations; it can bring down governments; it can start wars and justify genocides.”
–Stephen Fineman

“Blame-all and Praise-all are two blockheads.”
Benjamin Franklin

“No one can understand the way you are feeling unless they burn the way you burn.”
Rihanna

“Anyone who takes credit for the rain must not be surprised if his opponents blame him for the drought.
Dwight Morrow

“”If you are looking to inspire people then blaming is the last thing you want to do. To inspire others, focus your attention on the solution not the blame. No good comes from blame, good comes from finding a way to correct the situation.”
–Kate Summers

“You should never do anything wicked and lay it on your brother, when it is just as convenient to lay it on some other boy.”
Mark Twain

“We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers – but never blame yourself. It’s never your fault. But it’s always your fault, because if you wanted to change you’re the one who has got to change.”
Katharine Hepburn

“It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you place the blame.”
Oscar Wilde

DOES the reader spend much time trying to run from blame?

IS the reader much interested in who to blame for one misfortune or another?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
