“Oh, It’s Not My Fault –The Devil Made Me Do It”: You’ve Got To Be Kidding… Right???


I was watching tv today & CNN was covering Pope Francis’ last mass in the United States. It took place in Philly.   Well, one of the priest commentators mentioned how some people will say, “The Devil Made Me Do It.”   You know… people usually say this when they have been caught doing something they had no business doing.   They blame the devil for their bad behavior.

Now…Don’t Misunderstand.   The devil is real…&…the devil has a lot of power.  You see…God created him & gave him the powers he has.   Even when God kicked the devil out of Heaven…the Heavenly Father did not strip him of his powers.   Sooooo, the devil roams the earth seeking whom he can steal from…kill…& destroy.   And…make no mistake about it, he is roaming (even while I write this post) seeking another victim.  O.k…so we have the devil roaming the earth, looking for a victim.   devilroaringlion What does the devil’s actions have to do with someone else’s misbehaving…to put it mildly?   Let me tell you. The devil is not content with wreaking havoc, just by himself.  Oh, Hell No!   He wants others to help him do his dirty work.   Yeah…He wants you…me…& anyone else he can persuade to assist him…to, in fact…assist him.  Keep following now.    So, here is what he also does.    While he is roaming this earth…he looks for people who are predisposed to do things they ain’t got no damn business doing.  That’s what I said.   No damn business doing.   Now, the sad part is this…that includes a hell of a lot of people on any given day…at any given time.   Believe me in what I say.   I am telling you the truth.  O.k.


You might now ask the questions…”How does he know who to go after?  How can he tell who is predisposed to doing stuff they ain’t got no damn business doing?”  That’s easy for him.   Now, don’t get scared with what I’m about to say…please, just listen.     The devil can tell who probably will be a willing participant because he has followed us since birth.   Yes…the devil wasn’t born yesterday.   He has been here for eons…for many moons.  He doesn’t have to knock on your door…wait for you to open it…to get into your home.  Oh, NO.   He can just come through your walls…& he does.  That’s one of the powers that he has.   Again, he can come through your walls & watch every thing you do…if you are the one he’s targeting & you are not covered by God.  (Covering is a whole other story for discussion at another time)   Since, a whole lot of people are not covered the way they should be, if at all, the devil can come into a lot of homes…& he does.  Make no mistake about it.

schemes of the devil

So, he comes into your home…he watches what you do & he listens to what you say.  By doing this, he gets to know your weaknesses & points of vulnerability.   In other words, he checks you out to see how he might tempt you to sin against God.   Meaning…to influence you to do things, that again, you ain’t got no damn business doing.  (And, no…I’m not gonna dress it up)  The truth is the light.   We don’t have time…for a bunch of…dilly dallying…hand holding…beating around the bush…type of shit.  O.k.  Your soul is at stake & this is the most serious business that I can ever be discussing with you.


Alright.   Know this…the devil can’t read your thoughts when he watches you.   No.  Only God can do that. However, people engage in enough behavior that can be seen & heard, that the devil can definitely get to know you pretty well, without having to read your thoughts.   Remember, he has been here for a very, very long time & has been watching you (directly or through one of his demons) since you were born.  O.k.  Let’s say for example, the devil has been checking you  out & has seen that you are predisposed to…mmmhh…let’s say…cheating on your spouse.   Here’s what he will do.    He will influence you to go to certain places that will tempt you into cheating.  So, these places might be bars…strip clubs…casinos…etc..   You get the picture.   Now…you might ask…”How does the devil try to influence a person?” He does this by talking to you.   Yes, he talks audibly to people.   He might say to you…something like…”Your spouse is a bore, a nag, unattractive & is just jealous because you are attractive.   You need to go out there & get someone who really appreciates you.” When watching you through the years, if the devil has seen that you like to have your ego stroked…oh, boy… he is gonna do it.   And, if he has to lie to get you to do dirt, then so be it.  You see…the devil has no problem with lying.  He could care less.   Jesus has already told us that the devil is the father of lying.   He is a master at it.   The devil knows his end game is hell…so he’s trying to take as many people along with him that he can.  This is his number 1 goal.


He can also influence you by coming into your dreams…& putting you into these environments, such as bars…strip clubs…casinos…even in your dreams.   And of course, you will dream that your having sexual encounters with this one & that one.  Hell, the only one the devil won’t have you  sleeping with in those dreams… is…guess who?… that’s right…your spouse.  Mmmmhhh, you don’t say?  Soooo, when you wake up in the morning…guess what your thinking about?  Yes.  Cheating, again, on your spouse.   It becomes a vicious cycle.


And…the devil can influence you by sending other people (he’s influencing & using) to get you to do things you know you shouldn’t be doing.   This is why God tells us to be watchful at all times.   Know that the devil is always trying to tempt people to do things they shouldn’t be doing.   Now…have you noticed that I have used the words, “influence” & “tempt” when I’ve talked about how the devil tries to make people do bad things.   I have used these words purposefully.   Why?  To make the point that the devil can only try to “influence” you &  “tempt” you.   He can never make you do anything.   Let me say that again.   HE CAN NEVER MAKE YOU DO ANYTHING.   And…if anyone tells you different, they are telling you a damn lie.   Let me explain.


God gives everyone what we call “freewill.”   This means God gives you the freedom to choose to do what you will.  In spiritual terms, God gives you the freedom to do “good” things & He gives you the freedom to do “bad” things.  Now…don’t misunderstand.  I’m not saying that He wants you to do “bad” things.   I’m just saying that He let’s you choose how to be in this world.   God doesn’t even make people love him.   While…He wants nothing more…He doesn’t force us to.   Sooo, if God doesn’t force us to do “good” things…the devil can’t force you to do “bad” things.   You see…the devil’s power in no way matches with the power of God.   Remember, God created the angel…who later became known as the devil.    The creation can’t out do the creator.  NO WAY!!!


So, in all that we do…good…bad…or, in between…we only have ourselves to blame.   We are responsible for what we do unless, literally, someone forces us to do it.  I’m talking about at gun point, etc…  And…that is not a frequent occurrence.   So, with that said…there is no such thing as the “devil made me do it.”   Again, the devil can only tempt you…only influence you.   The final decision to do “good” or to do “bad” is up to you…& only you.   So, your cheating ass cheats because you choose to.  Your drunken ass drinks because you choose to.   Your high ass gets high because you choose to.    Your whoring ass whores around because you choose to.  Your thieving ass steals because you choose to. But…guess what?

With all of this choosing going on…you can also choose to stop cheating…drinking…getting high…whoring…stealing, etc…   That’s right.   And, guess who is there to help you if you choose to do the “right” things?  God, that’s who.  And, He is hoping that you will change the wickedness of your ways.   For, if you don’t…it will be you who He holds responsible.   Yes…God holds YOU responsible for every “bad” thing that you do…not the devil.
