Why is it that we want to blame American culture for our broken tendencies?

As soon as we start talking about faith, the statement seems to always arise: “You know, God wants us to just trust Him and rely on his timing. Its hard, but… you know the blessings are there. We just need to keep on trusting.” Then, the conversation goes on to how hard it is to trust… because if the distractions we have in America.

Why can’t we just say that it is hard to trust? If we believe that we truly are broken, then sometimes its not about external excuses. It is the sin nature in me, my own brokenness, that stands in my way of trusting the one who can heal me.
