ADDICTION FROM GODS PERSPECTIVE
Romans 6:16- Don't you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey ?(ADDICTION) You can be a slave to sin , (ADDICTION) which leads to death , or you can choose to obey God ,which leads to righteous living (SOBRIETY) .
Romans 6 : 17- Thank God ! Once you were slaves of sin (ADDICTION) , but now you wholeheartedly obey this teaching we have given you .
YOU ARE NOT POWERLESS !!!! That is a lie that the physical view of addiction has caused your spiritual blindness . Society has all of us focused on everything but the most important part of us !
Ephesians 6 v 12 gives us the truth ,We wrestle not against Flesh and blood , but against principalities , against powers , against the rulers of the darkness of this world , against spiritual wickedness in high places .
JESUS CHRIST Died to crush these dark forces (ADDICTION) which have you Enslaved ! Through JESUS CHRIST you are Guaranteed FREEDOM from ADDICTION ! If the dark Ruler of this World (satan) can keep your eyes away from this truth then you will forever belong to him enslaved hopeless , broken , confused , insecure , addicted , fearful , empty , and lost , and when your physical body gives out the hell dosen't end it only becomes far worse. Cry out to the LORD JESUS CHRIST and HE will make you HIS child no longer a slave but HIS child the apple of HIS eye , a special treasure ,and since JESUS CHRIST lived in this world as we do HE knows how difficult and painful life can be ,so HE will send you a Helper HIS HOLY SPIRIT to help you with all of life"s struggles . I am living proof of this truth as so are millions of others . FIND JESUS CHRIST AND GET FREE !
