Is It Your Fault?

Paul wrote in his letter to the Roman church a paragraph directed to his Jewish leader brethren. He told them that although they had studied the words of the Law and Prophets assiduously, they had so failed to live up to the spirit of them that it was their fault that people hated their god.

In another place he wrote:

Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decidenever to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.

Paul the Apostle

Jesus likewise had harsh words for those who lead others on the wrong path:

It is better for him if a millstone is hung around his neck and he is thrown into the sea, than that he should cause one of these little ones to stumble.

Jesus of Nazareth

Why have so many popular and influential Christian leaders fallen causing many to lose faith and outsiders to bolster their cynicism?

The question for me, and the question for you, is…what have I done or said that would cause another to lose faith or shun God?
