Here are some excuses that people might use when they stand face to face before Jesus in their particular judgment when they die. How do I know what people might say? I don’t. What I do know is what excuses I might make when my time comes.
The Devil Made Me Do it. Read Genesis 3 and its brilliant depiction of temptation and responsibility. This is as true today as it was back in the day.
12The man replied, “The woman whom you put here with me—she gave me fruit from the tree, so I ate it.”
13The LORD God then asked the woman: What is this you have done? The woman answered, “The snake tricked me, so I ate it.”ehttps://bible.usccb.org/bible/genesis/3
It’s your fault God, you never told me about what I needed to do.
The Catholic Church didn’t tell me how important loving others was, so it is their fault.
I did not see that one coming.
All the pedophile priests disgusted me so much that I gave up religion altogether.
How can the Catholic Church be holy when all I see are its members so imperfect and full of sin?
The Catholic Church is so corrupt and full of falsehood, I can’t stand to be in the same room with any of those people.
I didn’t think that anything that ridiculous could be true.
Where did all this knowledge about how to get to heaven? I never heard any of it.
If heaven is perfect, why is it full of sinners?
