Either Fall on the rock or the Rock shall fall on you
I never said that God doesnt do anything...where do you get this from?

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. –RC Sproul

You're taking the blame for everything bad that happens, aren't you?

No, but I play a part. Whether humans have "original" or inborn tendencies to "sin" or not, we are in fact responsible for our actions and reactions. If Jesus does in fact absolve us of our sins, it does not mean that we are passive observers. You may assert that lacking evidence of Jesus role in the process God becomes spiritually impotent --a valid argument for an atheist/agnostic, I suppose.

The bottom line, however, is that we become the decisions that we make.

To be fair, I dont take all of the responsibility for anything bad that happens in my life nor do I take all of the credit for the good that is produced.

Lets call it a communion. For me, it is between God and willing humanity. For you, it may simply be a communion among humanity.
