Policy of “Containment”

  • Roll-Over” = Through intervention, a forced change of administration


  • “But I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me.”

    • Romans 7:23

God Limitless Power

  • Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy

    • Jude 24

Great power in TRUTH

  • And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    • JOHN 8:32

Definition of “HABIT”



Definition of “ADDICTION”

  • “The State of being enslaved to a habit or practice to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma”

    • Random House Dictionary, 2010

Medical Definition

  • “The habitual psychological of physiological dependence on a substance or practice beyond one’s own voluntary control.”

Biblical Truth

  • “When I come up against the Law I want to do good, but in practice I do evil.”

God Understands (Romans 7:20)

  • When I come up against the Law I want to do good, but in practice I do evil. My conscious mind whole-heartedly endorses the Law, yet I observe an entirely different principle at work in my nature. This is in continual conflict with my conscious attitude, and makes me an unwilling prisoner to the law of sin and death.

  • After all, the Law itself is really concerned with the spiritual—it is I who am carnal, and have sold my soul to sin. In practice, what happens? My own behaviour baffles me. For I find myself not doing what I really want to do but doing what I really loathe

  • . Yet surely if I do things that I really don’t want to do, I am admitting that I really agree with the Law. But it cannot be said that “I” am doing them at all—it must be sin that has made its home in my nature. (And indeed, I know from experience that the carnal side of my being can scarcely be called the home of good!

  • I often find that I have the will to do good, but not the power. That is, I don’t accomplish the good I set out to do, and the evil I don’t really want to do I find I am always doing. Yet if I do things that I don’t really want to do then it is not, I repeat, “I” who do them, but the sin which has made its home within me.

The War within me…

  • In my mind I am God’s willing servant, but in my own nature I am bound fast, as I say, to the law of sin and death. It is an agonising situation, and who on earth can set me free from the clutches of my sinful nature?

  • I thank God there is a way out through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Will-Power Will NOT do it

  • The very weapons we use are not those of human warfare but powerful in God’s warfare for the destruction of the enemy’s strongholds.

    • 2 Corinthians 10:5

Living by the River in Egypt

Addictions are often denied – especially in Christians
