    Why does humanity choose not to take responsibility for their choices?

    As Jesus said "Man is the son of God, not a child of the devil", so you can't have both ways! Humanity has been conditioned to blame others for their own choices, including Satan. Evil is only a convenient label created by those unwilling to accept the truth of their own actions! 'Hate is the  shadow of fear; revenge the mask of cowardice.' If we are to learn forgiveness and unconditional love we must find the courage to practice these principles. Love is the answer and only this power can conquer hate, start today!

    This is a very good question.  I'm dealing with this on a profound level myself with others who are constantly berated me.  For example, we were never invited to a party for a friend of ours.  We never got a written invitation or a phone call.  Yet, after the party, we started getting hate messages.  FB posts.  Texts.  All telling us what lousy people we are because we didn't go to the party to support our friend.  We never knew a thing about it and would have loved to be included.  I'm finding this is happening more and more.  I've stopped talking to people all together because of these types of tyrades.  They don't want to pluck the 2x4 from their own eye....

      I suspect most people live in a state of denial, in which only others can be blamed for their own inconsideration. We must learn the lesson of not projecting our expectations onto others or believing that everyone shares our ethics and morals.

    Yeah, I especially can't stand the excuses like the ones that are always blaming Satan for everything bad that happens to them or for the evil that exists in the world.  They say there is a thin line between love & hate, but to me, both of them require strong feelings.  Apathy is still not the answer, of course...  Ha-ha!

      Blaming Satan for our own short comings and character defects is an all too common theme, one which often requires self examination and consideration, an idea that seems to escape the masses.

      Conditioning Works!

    most of us because we are taught to live like this, few of us because we can, and rest of us, we take responsibility for our choices. I think in latest years many people start to understand the impact of choices in each ones life, and start taking reponsibility for their choices. And this is good, since, by example, many people will start doing the same.

      Yes, I agree integrity must be practiced on a daily bases and hopefully will rub off on others.

    Love really is the answer to our problems. But the answer to your question is ego (the opposite of love).

    Ego is the source of blame and being victim. Ego wants to be right, but doesn't want to take responsibility. Ego is selfish, but doesn't want to do the work. Ego lusts, but doesn't care about the other person.

    When you take 100% responsibility you can no longer blame anyone. You have not saved any responsibility for anyone else. And you cannot be a victim, either. From this position, you can only be humble and loving, but fearlessly confident. This is where miracles take place.
