There are five proofs presented by James that God is not responsible for temptation and therefore sin.
Because of the nature of regeneration
Because of the nature of lust
Because of the nature of evil
Because of the nature of God
Because the nature of man
Match the proofs ABOVE with the verse or verses BELOW that support the proofs.
13When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;
14but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed.
15Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
16Don't be deceived, my dear brothers.
17Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
18He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of first fruits of all he created.
Thanks John Macarthur.
