It's a trap! Addressing Addiction


There are many of you out there that are suffering from this whether it being substance addiction or even lust etc. Before you continue reading; If this doesn't affect you or you just don't care, then this isn't for you either, move along. There is freedom from this kind of life style, addiction isn't a remedy, it's a trap. Some of you may be in your early stages of this and some of you have been in this same trap for years. If you don't think things can change, then just stay put and watch how quickly life goes by. I have struggled with this myself, so I am telling you this right now. It's no surprise that the majority of this website is struggling from this. You need to be open about this, addiction isn't something you should just be ashamed of. If you would like to be free from a life of addiction, then I would encourage you to get in the word (There you will learn the character of God) and find a bible believing church. Most churches have prayer teams that can pray for you. Satan would like you to believe that you're to far gone, that you can overcome this without reaching out for help and I'm pleading with you that this is not possible! Addiction is the biggest tool Satan uses to distract us and if he can keep us where we are then nothing will ever change. Ever wonder why we're so comfortable with it? Then you get the point. 5 of the biggest things addiction destroys and Satan hates: You, Friendships, Marriage/Relationships and Family unity. Some how this verse in James 1:13-18 came to mind. "13 When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He tempt anyone. 14 But each one is tempted when by his own evil desires he is lured away and enticed. 15 Then after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is fully grown, it gives birth to death. 16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. 17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, with whom there is no change or shifting shadow. 18 He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we would be a kind of first fruits of His creation."

Key points
- Addiction is a trap, not a remedy, but there's a way out
- You need to be open with people
- Addiction isn't something to be ashamed of
- Ask for deliverance
- Addiction is destructive
- Satan hates you, but God is for you

How could a loving God send anyone to hell?


One of the classic problems that people bring up is: How can a God of love send anybody to Hell? Well, there are several answers to that.

One of course is that God doesn't send anyone to Hell. You send yourself there. God has done everything He possibly can to keep you out of Hell and still leave you as a person with free will and not just a robot. That's the way He made us--after His image, after His likeness, the power to say "yes" or the power to say "no," the power to reject our own Creator, and of course to take the consequences.

In one sense you can say He doesn't send anybody to Hell, because across the road to Hell he has placed the cross of Christ. There are also the prayers of parents, pastors and Sunday school teachers, and all the other things that God brings into our lives to stop us on our selfish way and to bring us to the Savior. We have to go wandering on past it all and put ourselves in Hell.

Sometimes you hear people say, "God wouldn't send His children to Hell." God certainly doesn't send His children to Hell because when we're His children we're in the family of God. We're born again and part of our salvation includes deliverance from judgment. We're not all children of God except through faith in Christ Jesus.

Can a God of love send anyone to Hell? You might as well ask some other question to make just as much sense. Does God allow disease in the world? Does God allow jails and prisons for some people? Does God allow the electric chair sometimes? Does God allow sin to break homes and hearts? Does God allow war? All of these things are the consequences of sin entering into the world, and in some cases the direct result of man's rebellion, and the result of greed and pride and egotism and hunger for power that doesn't have any use for people--only the desire to get ahead.

This is the incredible fruit of sin. Sin brings suffering into the world. There's no way of getting around it. And the greatest sin in the world is to reject the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior.

We have our catalog of sins. We have rape and incest and murder ; and we have them all cataloged and classified--but there isn't one of them (or even put them all together in one big hunk) that comes close to the sin of keeping Jesus Christ out of your life. Did Jesus say, "I'm going to send the Holy Spirit to convict the world of sin because they rob banks"-- or, "because they believe not on me"?

It is folly to expect that you or I can trifle with the Lord Jesus and not have a penalty attached to it. What ridiculous thinking people have in this area! We expect penalties for doing much less. Life is just built that way.

You jump off a high building, the law of gravity will take care of you. You might say, "God is love," all the way down, but you're still going to get splattered when you hit the bottom! You break the law of gravity, and it breaks you! You may love your little child, but if he puts his finger up on that hot burner on the gas stove or the electric stove, he's going to get burned!

Fire burns. Gravity kills. Water drowns. And you can say, "God is love, God is love, God is love," until you're blue in the face. But water will still drown you, fire will burn you, and gravity will kill you, and sin will damn you no matter how much you say about a loving God.

God just set up life that way. He set up the rules. He set up the laws by which we are to live. And if we break those laws, they break us, and we pay the consequences.
