Flip Wilson’s Geraldine

I’m not vain! I’m just gorgeous.

The line got laughs, but fact is, the devil didn’t make him/her do it.

You young’uns probably don’t know old Flip, so I’ll tell ya; Flip Wilson is the comedian who invented the iconic character named Geraldine, a young black lady whose escapades, if Flip had not been black, would have gotten him blackballed(no pun intended) by the civil rights community. Geraldine’s signature line was, “The Devil made me do it!”

Jesus, who might be considered the authority on the devil’s tricks and deceptions, said:

“For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”(Mark 7:21-23 ESV)

That pretty much eliminates all our excuses.
