sermon on the mount --no excuses

If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away.

Excuses for bad behavior are not acceptable. .

The God who made us knows that we are capable of making the right choice in any given situations.

It’s not the Devil who makes us do it. It is not our culture. It is not peer pressure. It’s not our work environment. It is not our genetics. It is not our right eye—if it were, we would certainly pluck it out (to have a bodily appendage taking control of our actions would be a plot for a Stephen King novel.)

We all do sin. We all fall short of the glory of God. But we need to fess up, confess up; repent and seek forgiveness.

Then, the next time a similar temptation comes up, we need to think—do I really need to do this?
