I cannot agree more. The writer did a great job of what has been on my mind. As I’ve written before about being on the OTHER side of addiction, this so-called ‘disease’ is a nasty byproduct of sin. Since reading through the scriptures it’s easily seen that God is not a respecter of persons and every person is accounted for and precious to Him.
Addiction is NOT a disease, much to the dismay of my family members who believe this. My opinion is that people want to shirk some of the responsibility of their addiction to something or someone else calling it not just a disease, but a hereditary disease. Nothing can be further from the truth. God did not make one person an alcoholic, another a meth addict, another obese & diabetic, and another pristine clean. However, understanding that there is truth to generational sin will free the addicted from thinking in terms that it’s someone else’s mess they have to clean up. Rather, let the addicted understand, accept, and believe in restoration. ~ My Life as a Christian
