BLAME SHIFTING

By Dr. Richard J. Krejcir
Blaming others is an escape mechanism, which helps us avoid the consequences.

"The BLAME Game"

(Gen 3:12-17) As soon as man sinned, he quickly commenced to blame others. One of the effects of sin is the refusal to take responsibility for our actions. This is the favorite manner in which most people handle guilt, that is they blame others. They do this for two reasons:

First they do not want to live with guilt.

Second: they do not want to suffer the consequences of their actions.

           Blaming others is an escape mechanism, which helps us avoid the consequences. This fly's in the face of the Gospel. It is unjust and serves only to increase the guilt and the problems we incur with others in our relationships. This becomes a pattern of dysfunctional behavior that is an endless loop of a hopeless cycle. We must learn that God does not allow us to avoid the consequences of our actions by blaming others. In fact we are held responsible for blaming others! (Romans 14:12-13). On the Day of Judgment, there will be no opportunities for blame shifting.
