Addicts of different sorts

September 14, 2013

There was a celebration in town today.  I just happened across it in my travels.  It was put on by a church group to celebrate those who had beaten addictions.

Now, addiction can be a terrible, destructive thing.  I am glad if people are able to break free of their addictions, whatever helps them do so.

But, they were all crediting god and praising Jesus for their success.   So they haven’t really beaten anything.

They don’t realize it, but they are still addicts.  Just swapping one addiction for another.  Is one really more destructive than they other?  Maybe… but depending on the person, the one which is the more destructive may vary.

Kick ALL your destructive addictions, and don’t latch onto a new one to take the old ones place.  Free yourself!
