... through the 9 Ways We Participate in Other People's Sins:
The Devil celebrates your "victory" but leaves you alone with the consequences.
And these consequences are not good.
Evil wants to alinate you from others. The more alone you are, the more darkness is around you.
The modern Catholic Catechesis states in Article 8, Number 5, Point 1868: "The Proliferation of Sin".
"Sin is a personal act. Moreover, we have a responsibility for the sins committed by others when we cooperate in them:
- by participating directly and voluntarily in them;
- by ordering, advising, praising, or approving them;
- by not disclosing or not hindering them when we have an obligation to do so;
- by protecting evil-doers."
In the point 1869:
"Thus sin makes men accomplices of one another and causes concupiscence, violence, and injustice to reign among them.
Sins give rise to social situations and institutions that are contrary to the divine goodness.
"Structures of sin" are the expression and effect of personal sins. They lead their victims to do evil in their turn.
In an analogous sense, they constitute a "social sin."
The points 1868 and 1869 are the nine ways of how we participate in others sin, regardless if we understand that we are used by others.
That is also why the nine mentioned ways are of importance to put the foot down and say NO or STOP.
The word consequence is interesting as Merriam-Webster defines it as "a condition or occurrence traceable to a cause".
Is there a consequence of your actions?

+ In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti, Amen
Sancte Michael Archángele,
defénde nos in prœlio;
contra nequítiam et insídias diáboli esto præsídium.
Imperet illi Deus, súpplices deprecámur;
tuque, Princeps militiae cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malignos,
qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in mundo,
divina virtúte in inférnum detrúde.
