The way you define addiction will absolutely determine your outcome of total healing for a lifetime, or ongoing disability that will end in death. So, ask yourself if you want your addiction to be as dust in the wind, or, do you want to hold on to it until it kills you? Should you really be satisfied with making it through today without using, or, should you express gratitude to the One True Living God for setting you FREE for life?
The disease ‘theory’ dominates the etiology of addiction here in the U.S. It’s no wonder as it has become a mega industry bringing in well over $35 billion each year. With all that money being taken from unsuspecting people, it still produces a consistently low success rate that’s not likely to stop because it pulls in so much money. As long as addiction is labeled a disease, medical insurance providers can be required to pay for it, so it’s truly a win/win for those lining their deep pockets from unsuspecting people.
Why is defining addiction so important? It’s important because it begs the truth. There are lives being lost, to the tune of 1 every 7.5 minutes, here in the US, due to the hopelessness of being told that addiction is incurable and will haunt them for the rest of their life!
PLEASE… Do the Math!
If the darkness of addiction seems to have taken you over, then you need the cold hard facts… not some made up theory that financially benefits the medical and psychiatry communities. You have to realize that you have become a prisoner to your substance abuse and you MUST find the way out. That said, you should open up your mind to other possibilities by doing the research you need to do so that you can come to your own conclusion.
Mentally healthy people do not look to run away… they run toward God. Emotionally unstable people run from life to addiction in order to find some kind of ‘normal’. Their perception of normal becomes addictive behaviors to which they become slaves to.
Here, at Recovery Room 7, we firmly believe that addiction is simply sin, in the form of idolatry. Idolatry is making your #1 something other than Jesus Christ. Sin is anything we do that goes against God’s instructions in His Word, the Bible. Ending addiction begins with receiving Jesus the Messiah as your God, your Lord, and your Savior, and living life His way, according to His commandments.
Isn’t it time to return to your beloved Father… the God of all creation?
And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.
(Hebrews 11:6) The Bible
