Matthew 18:7 (KJV) No One More Guilty

Matthew 18:7 (KJV)
Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! 
It is a sorrowful thing that, in this world, there are offenses. There are evils that happen of every sort.
  • There are those who, like Joseph’s brothers, commit harm to a person because of jealousy.  
  • There are those who, like Nebuchadnezzar or Sennacherib, lead armies to take that which belongs to another. 
  • There are those who, like Haman, commit crimes against others just because they are mean spirited.
Such sins did not originate with God. He did not create sin, He does not approve of sin but He does permit sinners their leash. God also uses the sins and consequential offenses as a means to accomplish His will and direct the course of this world toward His final plan.
Having said that God permits sinners their leash and uses their actions for His own purposes, yet Jesus still insists that the sinner is culpable for his sins. Barnes says concerning this, “He who leads others into sin is awfully guilty – no man can be more guilty.”
