  3. If Satan is bound, how is there sin in the millennium? What does this say about the human heart?

  4. Tell of a time you've blamed your sin on someone or something else. Why do you think people are so quick to look for someone to blame? Why is it critical that we learn to take responsibility for our own sin?
