That is the problem that I have. Why it is your fault when you no longer can resist sin? You just resist as much as you can. You break and commit sin once you reach your threshold.
By definition, committing sin is not good. It is bad.
Therefore not resisting to commit a sin is a fault.
You can only go around this by redefining activities from "sin" status to "not a sin" status.
Killing people is a sin. Blasphemy is a sin. Adultery is a sin. Cannibalism of limbs of live individuals is a sin (although not a Christian sin; there is no specific forbiddation of this.)
But eating chocolate, or masturbating, or lazing on the beach is only a sin if you yourself accept it as a sin.
To resist temptation to kill others, therefore, is desirable, but to resist temptation of eating chocolate is only desirable if you want to stay slim.
