I seems many of us are concerned with who to "blame". But we are reluctant to blame ourselves.
Yet there were people in the Bible who were "blameless".

Gen 6:9; These are the records of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time; Noah walked with God.

Job 1:1; There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job; and that man was blameless, upright, fearing God and turning away from evil.

Even Satan was blameless in the beginning.
Ezek 28:15; "You were blameless in your ways From the day you were created Until unrighteousness was found in you.

Luke 1:5; In the days of Herod, king of Judea, there was a priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah; and he had a wife from the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.
Luke 1:6; They were both righteous in the sight of God, walking blamelessly in all the commandments and requirements of the Lord.

I don't if this means all of these people were 100% perfect, 100% of the time. But still whatever the case... the Bible says some people were blameless.

Rev 14:3; And they *sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders; and no one could learn the song except the one hundred and forty-four thousand who had been purchased from the earth.
Rev 14:4; These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they have kept themselves chaste. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been purchased from among men as first fruits to God and to the Lamb.
Rev 14:5; And no lie was found in their mouth; they are blameless.

Now of course in the new testament, Christians can be looked at blameless under the blood of Christ.
But what is it like... to live blamelessly?
