(The Truth shall set you free)
(John 8:31-36)

     This program and Bible Study teaches and exposes in great detail, and through much scripture, the many lies and misleading deception of Satan, used over decades in traditional secular and worldly 12-step addiction recovery programs. This deception has begun to find its way into Christian Churches in recent years. We believe attempting to mix these secular programs with Gods Word, can have devastating consequences on alcoholics and addicts who may already be struggling with the meaning and discernment of Gods Word and how it applies to their addictions.
      In The 4 Pillars of Truth For Christians in Addiction Recovery, we closely examine 4 fundamental pillars of Truth through scripture, that reveal 4 basic lies found in traditional, secular recovery programs. They are; Pillar #1,Our sin, Pillar #2, our power, Pillar #3, our hope, and Pillar #4, the myth that secular 12-step AA is a Christian program. This study prepares people for our other in depth, scripture based addiction recovery Bible study, The  “12 CHRISTIAN TRUTHS AND BIBLE STUDIES FOR ADDICTION RECOVERY.”    
      This Bible study is formatted into 12 individual Truths of scripture. They can be identified with the secular 12-steps by individuals who are familiar with such secular programs, but are seeking addiction recovery as Christians, through the discovery and study of God's Word as it applies to them. For those who have come to the understanding that in addition to Salvation, they need God's Truth in their life to succeed and have victory over their addictions. They’ve come to realize that “The Truth will indeed Set Them Free!”    



“SECULAR” Addiction Recovery “EXPERTS” claim "Alcoholics and addicts have an incurable DISEASE".
“GOD” says,… “WE DO NOT!”  We do not have a disease, but a sinful nature. In Galatians 5:19-21, we read, “The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery, idolatry, and witchcraft, hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition ... Envy, “Drunkenness,” orgies, and the like. I warn you as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the Kingdom of God!” This message can also be found in: Rom. 13:13, l Cor. 5:11, 6:9-10, Eph. 5:18, 1 Tim. 3:2-3, I Pet. 4:1-5. And for those who still insist we have a disease, ... God says in Mat. 4:23 ..... "Jesus went throughout Galilee, …. Healing every disease and sickness among the people". This message is repeated in James 5:16, Acts 4:10-14,5:16, 8:7, 14:8-9,28, Ps. I03:3. Wherever the word “drunkenness” appears in God’s Word, in context, it’s always used with other sinful behavior. So again, we do not have a disease, but a sinful nature. Before we move on to Pillar 2, let's review and study Col. 2:8: "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world, rather than on Christ". Also we read in 1 Cor. 1:19-20,  19, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” 20, Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?


“SECULAR” Addiction recovery “EXPERTS” claim that we are “POWERLESS,” (step one). This statement is Heresy in a Christian Church !
“GOD” says..…“WE ARE NOT“!   In Acts 1:8, Jesus says,  “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Jesus also tells us in Luke 10:19, "Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you." Paul tells us in Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Also in 2 Cor. 12:9-10 ...."My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness, that Christ's power may rest on me,....for when I am weak, than I am strong". Or Eph. 3: 14-21, "Out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through "His" spirit in "your inner being" ....18: you may have power .... that "YOU" may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of GOD". Or Col. 1:11 ...."Being strengthened with "all power" according to HIS glorious might so that "YOU" may have great endurance and patience". Also read Rom. 8:1-17, 9:17, 15:13, Eph. l :19-20, 3:20, 2 Tim. 3:1-5, Luke 1:35, Prov. 24:5
Don’t listen to the world’s lies. To tell a born again Christian that he or she is “powerless”, (step #1 in any 12-step program), is Heresy in the church. And today, there are thousands of churches around the country and beyond, that are guilty of this heresy! If you are using one of these 12-step programs, that begins with teaching a born again believer filled with the Holy Spirit that he or she is “powerless”, you need to re-evaluate your program. Or  simply explain to them that they were powerless before surrendering their lives to Christ.


"SECULAR" Addiction recovery "EXPERTS" claim "we have no hope," i.e.: "Once a drunk, always a drunk". A very commonly heard statement at 12-step meetings around the world. So commonly used and heard in fact, one would have to suspect it to be a policy supported by the leaders of the 12-step programs. A very “Hopeless” statement in deed! A type of philosophy or teaching only the Devil could perpetrate! An absolute lie that should never find its way into a Christian Church. "GOD" says in Heb. 6:19: "Our "Hope" is certain. It is something for the soul to hold onto. It is strong and secure. It goes all the way into the most Holy room behind the curtain". Or 1 Pet. 1 :3: "Give praise to the GOD and father of our Lord Jesus Christ. In HIS great mercy he has given us a new birth and a "Hope" that is alive". Or, in Heb. 7: 19: "The law didn't make anything perfect, now a better "Hope" has been given to us. That "Hope" brings us closer to God". Also read: Prov. 23:18, Rom. 15:4,13, 5:5,8:24-25, Eph. 1:18-19, 2:12, 4:4, Heb. 3:6, 6:11,10:23, 1 Cor. 13:13, Titus 1:2, 1 Pet. 3:15, 1 Thes. 1:3. Notes: Read "In Touch" (Jan. 3, 2011) on "Hope and Power"      
       As Christians in recovery, are we going to continue living in our addictions, and become another vital statistic, or are we going to accept and stand firm on Gods Truth, (John 8:32-36), trust it, and claim the victory over the bondage that is ours! (l Cor. 15:57 and 1 John 5:4.) It's our choice. I'm sure you're not reading this for entertainment, but in search for answers. All of the above are Gods answers according to His Word. I hope you've taken the time to follow along with His Word.
      My prayer is that you will find True and Everlasting Eternal Recovery in Christ Jesus, through the Revelation of His Truth. Amen


Many have been asking and debating for years, is A-A a Christian based program? Does it have Christian roots? Were the founders Christian men? It should only take a few verses of scripture in God's Word, the Truth, to recognize and understand scripture like… Matthew 28:16-20, (The Great Commission), or Titus 1:16, or Acts 17:23, that when we hear messages about putting our trust and faith into some “undefined higher power”, or God of “our” choice, or a god as we choose to understand him, we should easily be able to recognize the complete and total lie, and false teaching in the idea that AA is a Christian program. As Christians, there is only “One” God! A-A has been claiming for years to have Christian roots, and yet proclaims that “any” god that you can imagine is acceptable in their meetings and program. They refuse to allow the Holy Word of God in their meetings, or any discussion of His Son Jesus Christ, or the Holy Spirit is forbidden. Is it possible to receive Salvation and Eternal life with God the Father, His Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, from "some undefined higher power"? I believe the answer is quite clear according to scripture. As long as A-A refuses to acknowledge Jesus Christ as its “higher power”, and that there is but only one Sovereign Almighty God, and refuses to allow the Gospel, and discuss Jesus Christ, or scripture, or prayer in their meetings, it will never be a Christian program! Period! You can't deny Christ and be a Christian! While I understand their original intent, which is still being practiced today, is to try to make their meetings more appealing and acceptable to a larger audience, any and all Christians #1 objective must be to lead others to Christ! Matthew 28:16-20 commands us to do so, and if we are Christians, we don't need a command, because it should become our utmost desire to lead others to Christ. Then It’s Christ’s job to Sanctify them! What good is a sober person going straight to Hell because the Truth's been hidden from them? And the Truth tells us that God won't allow any drunkards into Heaven, so we consequently, can be assured that if we are truly saved, he will “set us free” from our addictions!  no, A/A is Not a Christian program, period! Good intentions or works will not get us into Heaven. (Ephesians 2:8-10)
