Every single day of my life – without exception – I help, teach and bring awareness to the dangers of prescription drug abuse along with illegal drug and alcohol abuse. Most who come to me are professing Christians! How can I say I’m a born again believer and, at the same time, warn people about premature death? I mean, death is life to us who are true believers; it’s a ‘good’ thing, right? It means entry into eternity! Well, yes… but only IF you’re not involved in ongoing sin. Addiction is sin.
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
(1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
The Bible speaks about “drunkards” going to Hell! Drunkard, is defined by anyone who uses a mind altering substance, such as Rx drugs, street drugs and alcohol. God doesn’t categorize saved drunkards from unsaved drunkards. A drunkard is a drunkard and a drunkard is not anyone who is saved. If someone thinks they’re saved and is using any types of drugs (including physician ordered Rx drugs) or alcohol, the Bible speaks another story, doesn’t it? God also tells us to be ‘sober and vigilant’ as well as warning us that our bodies are the ‘Temple of the Holy Spirit’. You smokers out there are in spiritual harm’s way as well, because cigarettes destroy God’s Temple – your body. Frightfully clear, isn’t it? Don’t be tricked by the enemy telling you that you’re soul is safe; it’s not! Ongoing sin separates us from God. When the Bible strictly and specifically warns that addicts (drunkards) will end up in the Lake of Fire, I would step up and believe Him. After all, God is the ONLY One who cannot lie. Stepping up means getting medically detoxed so that you can live without any kinds of drugs or alcohol. Begin right now and schedule yourself for detox! After you get home from detox, get some support for a few months in order to permanently lock out addiction and lock in God. Get FREE!
I can do ALL things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Phil 4:13)
