Worship Wednesday

“The woman you put here with me – she gave me some fruit from the tree and I ate it” (Gen. 3:12; Emphasis added)
Translated: “If you hadn’t put this woman in my life, none of this would have happened!”

And in that moment, something very significant began.
In the beginning Adam blamed God for his troubles, and mankind has been blaming God ever since. From our vantage point, we can see what’s really going on. Adam is simply refusing to accept responsibility for his behavior. And when anyone refuses to accept responsibility for his behavior, he goes looking for somebody to blame. Adam chose God. So do we.

We all struggled to reconcile the realities of suffering and injustice with the idea of a sovereign and just God. And from Genesis forward, God has taken the rap for all that is evil in this world. “The woman you put here with me…” becomes The accident you allowed to happen. The disease you refused to heal. The break you refused to give me. And on and on we go. But just as Adam’s rationale was flawed, so is ours.
– Entry from Grace of God by Andy Stanley

Are you blaming God?
