Satan made me do it…or did he?

The jist of the post has to do with blaming Satan for our sins instead of our own fallen nature, i.e. ourselves. Though he does not cause us to sin, he suuuure will tempt us to. I think this is a good perspective on it.

James 1:12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. 13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. 14 But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. 15 Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.
