WHY GOD FORCES US TO COMMIT SINS?
A devotee who requested anonymity asked like this:
“i wanted to know what leads a person to commit a sin? if something bad happens to us then the reason is really karma of past or there are some other reasons also? n wat reason leads the other person to do wrong to us and they dont even realize .. not a sign of realization that they did wrong to someone.. not just one time..bt several times?”
Yes. Any activity by any person happens to us because of two reasons:
(1) To face the reactions for our Past Karma, ie, to nullify/ clear our past sinful acts in previous births, or, even in this birth in the past by facing their similar reactions.
(2) To add new good and bad karma to you when you use or misuse the FREE WILL given by Krishna.

There is a beauty in these two statements. Krishna does not want us to commit sins. He is waiting for us to come to His kingdom to serve Him. But, we only are staying in material worlds by comitting sins, as we need these temporary pleasures of the material worlds.
(Why should Krishna make us suffer giving freedom since He is controlling us? KNOW HERE)
Krishna has given some amount of freedom for HUMANS ALONE. Not for any other living beings.
All other living beings can not decide their next birth. But, a man can decide how he will be after leaving this body.
KRISHNA HAS GIVEN HIM THE FREE WILL, ie FREEDOM TO CHOOSE EITHER PAINFUL MATERIAL BIRTHS, OR, BLISSFUL LIFE IN SPIRITUAL WORLDS.

So, if we utilise this freedom and involve ourselves in Krishna Consciousness seriously, we can clear all our past karma, get purified and thus get qualified to enter Krishna’s kingdom.
Otherwise, if we misuse this freedom and involve in sense gratifications that lead to sins, we have to take many painful births in future. Either as human, or as any other living being out of 84,00,000 types of living beings.
Now, your question can be clear. You are cheated many times by others, because, you are clearing your past karma of having cheated many. Give and Take. That’s all.
The person who is cheating you now, is adding new karma that he will repay in his next birth.
If we use the free will given by Krishna to us to commit sins, we are given more births in this material world AND FACE THE REACTIONS OF ALL OUR PAST SINS.

The parents trust the children and send to school or college. They do not come with them to supervise them. If the girl or boy uses that freedom to study well, he/ she can get a glorious future. If he/ she cleverly misuses the trust and freedom given by the parents by involving in sinful acts, he/ she invites problems and suffer.
Whose mistake is this? That of the boy/ girl only. Parents can just allow freedom and give some advice.
Similarly, Krishna gave us freedom to choose what to do. He also has mercifully given perfect advice through Bhagavad Gita about how to live and get elevated. He has done His duty perfectly.
He has also made available many pleasures for us to enjoy with a condition that it gives repeated births according to our chosen activities.

He also assures and gives an eternal place in His Kingdom and in His service if you dedicate your life for Krishna.
So, patiently bear the reactions and never involve in any acts that lead to sins in future. Involve yourselves in chanting seriously.
Follow Krishna Consciousness seriously, develop detachment from material glares and try to escape from this material world that is DHUKKALAYAM & ASASVATHAM.
