  1. Addicted to chemical substances?, Hell, yeah, why do you say that like its a bad thing?

    Compulsive behaviors? Does sex count?

    Self-destructive behaviors?,No, mostly others-destructive behaviors. But that’s ok, I take it out in Halo.

    Apparently these speakers never lived in (male) fundy dorm…

  2. This is in response to many comments about fundy answers to addictions and the like.

    The futility of the fundy approach is clearly taught in the Bible. Colossians 2, NIV: ” 20) Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: 21) “Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!”? 22) These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings. 23) Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence.”

    Note:
    – It calls them *the world’s rules* and “human commands and teachings”! 😯 “Just don’t do it” is a HUMAN approach, not a Godly one.
    – “Self-imposed worship” (NASB has “self-made religion”), “false humility,” “harsh treatment of the body”…sound familiar, anyone?
    – The conclusion: It doesn’t work! The Bible is supremely practical…! 💡

    Clearly, dangerous things happen when you pick and choose which parts of the Bible you want to believe and teach…and which you do not.

    (Not said with any sense of having arrived; I certainly have not. Just making a point.)
