Common abrahamic excuses that hold little water
"God gaves us free will, ergo it's pur own fault": Except that the Bible nor the Qu'ran put emphasis on free will. Hell, this excuse is so very recent, that, until a few centuries ago, the idea that God had absolute control over our lives was very popular.
"Its our fault; Adam and Eve's sin created evil, not God!": If you have read Genesis, you'll know this is bullshit (Hell, even Yahweh admits he created evil!). Likewise, at no point is the first sin ever considered a "Pandora's Box" situation.
"God is goodness incarnate! Evil is against his nature!":...have you even read the Bible? Yahweh is also considered to not be goodness incarnate until the NT and Qu'ran; in the OT, he is treated as a Lawful Neutral agent.
"Your're putting everything out of context!": Considering I actually bother to read the Bible/Qu'ran, while you only cherry pick passages your pastor dictates...
"He died for your sins! You should be grateful!":

Cass stares at his hands.
"I've got blood on my hands again..."
He was so sure he had left that behind.
"Then wash it off."
But it wouldn't come off. It wasn't enough that the red was no longer there. He could still feel it, like it had soaked into his skin.
"What if we make the same mistakes?"
It awakened old fears, old pleasures that he thought he had long forgotten. The blood was always there. No matter how hard he scrubbed, how many times he washed them or how much of his own skin he tore in the process it wouldn't go away. The most he could hope for was for it to stay dormant. And it had, for a while. Now it was back. Layers upon layers of blood coating his hands. This time, this time it feels like it's here to stay. God knows what will happen this time around, how many peoples' blood he'll be burdened with.
He came to Carpathia for a new life, a fresh start. But it seems those dreams are lost now. He has lost his second chance.
