The issue of addiction can be very complicated. The reason behind this is because you are dealing with something that is foreign. Turning to God from Idols is designed as a study for exposing and disposing the idolatry of addictions (any and every addiction). Thank God, there are several strategies that deal with addictions! I think that any given ‘program’ can be useful in bringing a person to a level of honesty and awareness. The main thing is that the person begins to deal with their problem. And although it is true that it is good for the person to immerse themselves into some kind of ‘program’, some of the strategies of dealing with addictions are better than others.
Down through the years I had adopted a phrase that was used by the Apostle Paul in explaining his love and concern for the church of Ephesus. “I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you” (Acts 20:20) was the commitment that Paul made, which I now embrace. It is for this reason that I have chosen to address addictions in the most biblical accuracy of idolatry. The title of the book comes from
1 Thessalonians 1:9.
The ultimate alternative to an addiction is Jesus. He alone is the link to the true of living God. And although we may be able to achieve some degree, some form of sobriety outside of Christ, the highest form of sobriety known unto mankind is found in Jesus Christ (since He bridges the gap between God and man and gives everlasting peace to all that come to Him).
The process that is used in my book is a simple formula that you will find in every ‘program’ or list of steps. After many, many year of contemplative study (my own and the writings of others), I have refined the process of dealing with addictions into three elements. The three elements, that I refer to as phases, are reasoning, repentance, and rejoicing. And, of course, the main thing that gives strength to a biblical process is the element of reverence towards God.
