Why is it that so many people say ” God has tempted me? It is not God, but our own desires that are causing us to go in the wrong direction. In the 1st chapter of the book of James it states in versus 13-14:
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. (James 1: 13-14 King James Version )
God can not be tempted and He will not tempt anyone to do wrong. God is good and God is love. If this was not true, He would not have given His son Jesus as the ultimate sacrifice to give man the ability to become part of the Kingdom of God once again. God wants to have a relationship with His creation that He made in His image.
