Overcoming Addiction (12.12.2021)

December 14, 2021

According to Caroline Leaf, a neuroscientist, addiction is not a disease, but a mechanism we use to numb our pain. She also argues that 85-90% of people who overcome addiction do so with a choice.  How then can we overcome addiction? 1 John 1:9 and James 5:16 commands us to confess our sins. We often do not know how to confess our sins. We need to confess our sins to God then to one another to overcome habitual sins of the flesh or addiction.
