I have a real problem with Christian(???) 12 steppers still tagging themselves and others who are over addiction, an “addict” for the rest of their lives. I can understand the ignorance of the 12 steppers, who have not found Jesus, thinking this stupidity because they know nothing of the things of the Spirit; however, Christians? I have to think about whether they are my brethren or not. After all, they are denying the Power of our God! You know the Scripture from 2 Timothy 3:5 that says…“having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” So, I have nothing to do with them and I do “turn away”. Then, you have the Christian(???) steppers who say they are “powerless” and “diseased”. Well, I guess they have never read their Bible where God says, in 2 Tim 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of POWER and of LOVE and of a SOUND MIND”. Hmmmm! Let’s see now. In Christ, I have “POWER” and a “SOUND MIND“! That means you are NOT powerless and NOT diseased. What herasy!!! If you want to keep using and using over and over again, then remain powerless and beat yourself up about having a relapsing disease and go to your hopeless and helpless AA meetings and feel sorry for yourselves. If you’re not a Christian, then I can’t expect you to feel hope; however, if you say you are a Christian, you had better get with the program before you find yourself in hell…both here and in the life to come.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away;
behold, all things have become new.”
2 Corinthians 5:17 – GOD said it & meant it!
Bottom Line is that Addiction is Sin, not a disease. Addiction is a choice…a bad one.
Choose to give your sin of Addiction to Jesus
and be healed – Forever!
