Everything is God's Will...

So everything is God's will right? So why do Christian's blame Satan for their actions? If everything and everyone is part of God's will, that would include Satan.

According to Isaiah 45, God is the source of good and also, ultimately of all trouble.

Is this all just a lack of ability to take accountability for our own actions? "Satan is making you do it!"

Or is Satan more powerful than God?

  • Very little is God's will in the everyday lives of mankind. Is Your Future Predestined?

  • They blame Satan for the temptation, but they blame themselves for making the bad choices.

  • No. God is good all of the time. God's will is not evil in nature. God allows Satan to work in this world (this goes back to the fall recorded in Genesis. It has to do with free will. Basically, humankind chose to turn to evil, we have a choice now whether or not to stay in it or repent from it) God's power is much stronger than any evil and he can turn any evil to good if you invite him (once again based on free will).

    By the way, Satan doesn't make us do anything, he tempts us and we, once again have to use free will to discern whether or not we are going to yield to that temptation or yield to the Holy Spirit. We don't have the strength within ourselves to fight every battle against evil. If we did we wouldn't have fallen (like in Genesis) to start with and there would have been no need for Jesus to die for us. cont.

  • We pray to the Father in the name of the Son. We consult the word of God, we yield to the Holy Spirit and we seek support and encouragement from the church. These are many of the ways a Christian yields to God and God defeats evil.

  • Well its only natural to blame someone other then ourselves for the wrong that we do..Christians are the worst about it. God tells them to go out and love everyone, but where does it say in the bible to picket funerals, where does it say to picket the state house with signs printed with hateful words, where in the bible does it say to treat others with hatered and malice if they do not live or believe as you do? I do believe that it actually says "treat others the way you wish to be treated" I know it doesnt say stop blaming invisable creatures or people for your shortcomings???

  • You should watch this. It makes a good point.

    Christians may not be too happy to see this. Just a warning. But it does prove a point.

  • Questioning isn't the same as hating on. Asking legitimate questions about anything isn't hating on. Hating on would be outright insulting you for your beliefs or saying what you believe in is stupid. I don't think anyone has sad that. But let me ask all you Christians this.

    Suppose you got a job. You have never seen the boss, you have never received a pay check, and you are expected to work there until you die, being faithful to your job with no pay and a boss no one has ever seen. Would you continue the job on the chance that your hard work MIGHT be noticed with a big check at some point, or would you leave because you are working your butt off for a boss that might not even acknowledge your hard work? I can't live my life for something that hasn't shown me anything other than if he exists, he's on vacation.
