I played the blame game.
Don't we all do that sometimes? It's so much easier to blame the devil for our own sin.
One thoughtful commenter from yesterday's post had this to say: "If you are wasting time with Twitter or Tweetdeck, I hold that you'd be wasting time if you didn't have the tool."
"I can taste the fruit of Eve
I'm aware of sickness, death and disease
The results of our choices are vast
Eve was the first but she wasn't the last
And if I were honest with myself Had I been standing at that tree My mouth and my hands would be covered with fruit
Things I shouldn't know and
things I shouldn't see
Remind me of this with every decision
Generations will reap what I sow
I can pass on a curse or a blessing
To those I will never know.
She taught me to fear the serpent
I’m learning to fear myself
And all of the things I am capable of
In my search for wisdom, acceptance and wealth
And to say that the devil made me do it Is a cop out and a lie The devil can’t make me do anything When I’m calling on Jesus Christ."

"But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death." James 1:14,15
