Jesus said to his disciples: There will always be something that causes people to sin. But anyone who causes them to sin is in for trouble. A person who causes even one of my little followers to sin 2 would be better off thrown into the ocean with a heavy stone tied around their neck.
Luke 17:1-2 (Contemporary English Version)

Reading this brought tears of gratitude to my eyes. It is such a comfort to know that Christ not only died for our sins but he defends us against those that would cause us to knowingly and unwillingly sin.
