Discussion on Rationalizing Disobedience
lease read the lecture note first and answer the questions, I will upload the lecture note.
When Samuel confronted Saul after his battle with the Amalekites in 1 Sam 15, Saul insisted on his innocence. He told Samuel that he kept the prized livestock of the Amalekites so he could make a sacrifice to Yahweh. He also claimed that it wasn’t his idea in the first place and placed the blame on his army. Many Christians today try to rationalize their disobedient behavior by placing the blame on someone or something else. The hackneyed phrase, “The devil made me do it” is one example of how people try to rationalize their behavior.
what are some ways that people end up acting more like the rationalizing Saul rather than like Samuel? How might this passage prompt one to respond differently?
