THE BIBLE ALWAYS MAKES IT CLEAR that we are all responsible for our actions; that we must reap what we sow, and that in the end we have to give account to God for those things “done in the body”.
2 Cor 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
But the churches commonly present a conflicting message about this:
A) That what we do “in the body” is what they call “works”, and is somehow irrelevant after being “justified by faith”.
B) That what they call “Satan”[an un-translated word meaning
“adversary”]- is to be blamed for everything bad in this world. This view is not valid! To show this we shall firstly consider the word “Satan”.
