If alcoholism is a disease, it is the only disease you can buy on a shelf. Alcoholism is sin which has many bound. There is ONE answer to sin and that is the Cross of Christ Jesus. At Calvary, Jesus broke the power of sin. It’s dominion is laid waste.
The problem in the world today is sin and the answer is Jesus Christ and Him crucified. The world’s answer to sin does not deliver from sin. 12 steps, 40 days, abstinence and the like will not deliver. Sin can not be “rehabilitated” and pronounce cured by vain philosophies of the intellectual. No, not at all. However, sin can be eradicated…expelled from the heart of man as the Holy Spirit divides asunder the intents of our heart and removes those things that are not pleasing to God.
Made a new creature in Jesus, baptized into His Death, we have newness of life. Under Grace, there is dominion over sin…not a license to sin.
The days of playing church are coming to an end. The line in the sand is being drawn as the fence dwellers are made to choose in whom they are going to serve. Eternal souls are at stake. Too many care more about what others think than what God thinks. We must stop renaming sin and presenting another method for victory. We must declare Jesus Christ and Him crucified as THE WAY, THE TRUTH and THE LIFE, to all who will hear.
Homosexuality is sin. Fornication is sin. Alcoholism is sin. SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS is sin. RELIGIOUS PRIDE is sin.
Judgment begins at the house of the Lord. If we won’t declare sin as sin according to the Word of God, the world surely won’t. God has given us the answer to sin…Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Be determined to know nothing else.
