How Christian Theology Says “It’s Not My Fault”

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, March 20, 2017

Judeo-Christian theology, and other religions, often refer to an event characterized and monikered as “The Fall,” in which the initial human subjects reportedly disobeyed their Creator (most often portrayed as the woman being gullible, simple-minded, weak, first at fault, and therefore ultimately responsible), and then were expelled from their idyllic, Paradise-like existence.

As the storylines go, their “disobedience” by eating the Fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil, every bad thing upon Earth & existence stems from that event – every malady, every disease, every human character fault, every foible, every flaw, every failing, every malformation, every damaging storm, every climatic maelstrom, every bad, malicious, or evil thing stems from that singular event.

That’s how the story goes.

It’s a wonderful way to externalize and avoid responsibility by placing blame upon events outside the locus of self-control.

It’s the ultimate “it’s not my fault” statement.
