Brothers and sisters, some
addicts outside of the church are sent into, or are in the church having been
sent by the courts, or some treatment centers, or some people claiming God
heals addictions. Again, the addict may likely arrive having been taught by
these, that they are victims of their addictions and have no free will. However,
we know, holy brethren, these are false claims not found in scripture. God commands us to stick to the truth and the
authority of the Bible as finalized in the inerrant truth of the new covenant
of Jesus Christ. No one has power authority from God to convert the gospel of
Jesus Christ into the world’s treatment center for various addictions.
According to a NIDA
Caffeine, for example, like
many drugs, caffeine is chemically addictive, a fact that scientists established back in 1994.
This past May, with the publication of the
5th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders
(DSM), caffeine withdrawal was finally included
as a mental disorder for the first time—even though its merits for inclusion
are symptoms that regular coffee-drinkers have long known well from the
times they’ve gone off it for a day or more
Suddenly, without the
drug, the altered brain chemistry causes all sorts of problems, including the
dreaded caffeine withdrawal headache.
The good news is that,
compared to many drug addictions, the effects are relatively short-term. To
kick the thing, you only need to get through about 7-12 days of symptoms
without drinking any caffeine, and your addiction will be broken if you
tolerate the discomfort due to the absence of the drug in the system.
Brethren, we cannot fail
to notice that according to the scientist, the cure for caffeine addiction is
not effectuated through any form of psychological treatment although caffeine
addiction is considered to be among the mental disorders. How strange they do
not apply this knowledge of breaking caffeine addiction to drug addict and
alcoholic relapse due to intense cravings resulting from the absence of intoxicant
in the system, as a refusal to tolerate the inevitable discomfort of the
process in breaking the addiction. It is understood that alcohol and drugs can
cause serious problems requiring medical treatment to avert death or injury.
However, brethren, all
the recommended treatments documented for the victim of addictions without free
will, all contain the element of cessation from, or reducing the addicts use of
intoxicants. Stranger still is that although the scientist claim addictions are
incurable, they have yet to establish any medical programs to maintain the
addict or alcoholic on controlled doses that might be useful in harm reduction.
We, the people of God are
in the world, but are all of an entirely different kingdom, the only one that is
great and will last forever. We know it is best, as God commands, to put our
trust in God. God is absolute truth, wisdom and love. God never lies, makes
mistakes, or errors, never deceives, and is utterly trust worthy forever.
The new covenant of Jesus
Christ, brothers and sisters, again was never established by God to be used by
mankind as a secular treatment center focused solely on healing all of the
various and sundry addictions of the world. The Bible sets the eternal standard
for the only good kinds of addictions
acceptable and honoring to God: 1Co 16:15 I
beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the
firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves
to the ministry of the saints,) 16 That
ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us,
Addicted: to appoint on
one's own responsibility or authority, to ordain, purpose or focus
intentionally in an orderly manner on helping those in need. Here the Bible clearly
references addiction as a choice.
It is entirely futile and
a losing battle to argue with God. The Bible does not mention drugs but it does
clearly condemn excess and commands sobriety. It does not take a degree in
science to know that anyone who habitually abuses alcohol or drugs cannot be
considered sober while under the influence.
Sober minded: to be of sound mind, to
be in one's right mind, to exercise self -control, to curb one's passions.
1Co 10:13 There
hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man…
Jas 1:13 Let
no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God
cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 4 But
every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then
when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished,
bringeth forth death.
Addictions are just some
of the many sins in the world and there is nothing special about them, nor does
the Bible teach that people are incapable of overcoming them. Jesus Christ did
not shed His sinless blood, die bodily on the cross and rise again from the
dead for all eternity to save people from one type of sin or only certain types

Dearly beloveds, recall
to mind the regretful gentleman who greatly desired to get his life back, having
realized his own hands had destroyed his life. This new life he desired would
be entirely different from the one that had led him on a path of destruction. What
a wonderful thing, brethren, for anyone to desire a new life of being free from
addictions, truly living, thriving, growing, being constructive, turning from
rather than continuing in making life shattering mistakes. The thing is he didn’t
know how he could obtain this new life, but remained very hopeful that somehow,
he would do it.
Brothers and sisters, we
know people like this man are coming to and now are even in the church.
Many of them, holy
people, have been exposed to the false god of recovery- of God is what you
alone make Him or it to be, along with government scientists among others,
firmly diagnosing addictions as being a disease that also impacts mentally,
declaring that it is not a sin, not a moral failing or weakness. Therefore, they claim that all such persons
are not accountable for having this so- called disease or any severe medical
damage to themselves and/or the damaging behaviors to themselves and the
public, resulting from periods of relapses, as the addicted are robbed of free
will and choice by the disease.
Remember, brethren, the
government diagnoses only came about when middle class white persons became
addicted in great numbers, yet people of color and poor white people are
routinely jailed for long periods of time without mercy. Much is being done to
change the laws to prevent middle class white people from facing long prisons
terms, and having a life ruining criminal record. They are given treatment
rather than arrest, and those if arrested can have their records fully expunged
in certain states. These changes in the law are taking place supposedly to aid
and correct the injustices done to people of color and poor white people, yet
they benefit little from these changes in the law. These changes primarily
benefit middle class white people. It is not surprising for the rise of movements
to legalize magic or psychedelic mushrooms mainly used by so called middle and
upper classes. Oregon leads the way in decriminalizing hard drugs
The passage of the
measure makes Oregon, which in 1973 became the first state to decriminalize
marijuana possession, a pioneer in America in trying the same
with hard drugs. The measure takes effect 30 days after Tuesday’s
election, but the punishment changes don’t take effect until Feb. 1.

The Ann Arbor, Mich.,
City Council unanimously voted this week to essentially decriminalize a wide
range of psychedelic drugs, including psilocybin mushrooms,
mescaline, and ayahuasca.
Mankind has its answers
for problems, holy people, some do work, but many of them either make the
problems worse or sometimes just kicks it down the road out of mind: The government's hope of ending drug addictions or
reducing the number of those addicted have faded in current realities: U.S. Drug Overdose Deaths Hit Record High
U.S. Drug Overdose Deaths Hit
Record High in 2019 ... the overdose epidemic appears to have grown even more
severe in 2020 than it was one year ago. The number of

However, brothers and
sisters, we should never forget the timeless wisdom of God our Maker. When men
believed the world was flat and drew maps showing how far they could go before
falling off, God’s testimony that the earth was a sphere was evident in the
order of His heavenly bodies of the sun, moon, planets plainly seen in the
heavens, and later plainly written in His word: Isa 40:22 It
is he that sitteth upon the circle of the
earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that
stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to
Dearly beloveds, we know
that God speaks to the addicted outside of the church and the whole world. He
is not a man that can lie, or make mistakes, or deliberately seek to deceive. God
will not discriminate against anyone because of their skin color, ethnic group,
rich or poor, feeble or well, or whether they are fat or thin, beautiful or
plain, for all of these things are totally irrelevant to Him.
God will receive all who
come to Him for help. He is absolute truth and love. God will not counsel or
teach the error of what the recovery movements, government scientist and
churches paid by the government to treat addictions will teach- that addicts suffer from a medical/mental disease, and bear
no responsibility/ accountability for death/ injury to themselves and/or others
through long term relapses; and that it is perfectly acceptable for addicts to
risk death, and permanent disability that can arise from these chronic
relapses. The problems of the addict are a great deal deeper and far more
deadly than the addiction itself.

Holy people, again, there
are many things our government does right, but in terms of applying justice
equally without partiality not so much, which is common, although still not
acceptable throughout world governments. Again, had our government dealt with
drugs illegal and legal early on instead of racializing it to people of color,
and class i.e. poor white people of the so-called lower classes we would not
now have the level of problems with drugs as we do today. Let us look finally
at the strange bedfellows in the American opioid drug epidemic:

Sadly, dearly beloveds,
our government continues its nasty conduct of preferential treatment of some
above others regarding race and class; blacks and people of color continue to
be routinely jailed. On the east coast treatment and pharmaceutical drugs, with
a hundred more drugs being researched help the middle- class white people, on
the west coast poor white meth addicts are routinely taken in to fill up the
jails and their assets taken such as cars and cash and there is not a single pharmaceutical
drug developed to ease their addiction: Race, Class, and the Framing of Drug Epidemics - Contexts
Drug prohibition often
relies on the image of a demonized racial other whose drug use threatens social
stability. But if we see only racial animus in drug scares, we overlook another
engine of social control and harm: classism. The primary framing of the opiate
epidemic as “White and middle-class” and the assumption that all White drug
users have privilege serves to obscure the ways in which class figures
prominently as a dividing line between which drug users are subjected to and
Our government, dearly
beloveds, has studied people who have beaten addictions through their faith of
which there are many without number. They have carefully researched what they
think is faith. However, they have had no success in replicating or
duplicating the effect of faith through science. Therefore, government grants are given to faith-based
organizations among others, who willingly choose to apply for
them, to treat addicts, with restrictions as aforementioned. These IRS churches are willing to shut down the gospel for money and gain the opportunity to be salaried employees to line their pockets-but what profit, holy people, is there to such, to gain the whole world and lose their own souls. There is a terrible price to pay for being unrepentant lovers of money above love, trust and obedience to God.
Nevertheless, brethren, all over the
country countless Christians in groups and individuals are serving the needs of
people and preaching the gospel without one cent of government money; God is continually supplying the needs of these faithful brothers and sisters to do God's work, mainly with volunteers.
Brethren, we are not
surprised by government failure to reproduce faith because the natural man can’t
understand the things of God: 1Co 2:14.
Such churches of the IRS
are false and not the true new covenant church of Lord Jesus Christ: The “spirituality”, of the hired for
treatment service churches of the IRS have nothing to do with the truth of
scripture: the doctrines they teach the addict
and the church clearly contradict scripture; that addiction is disease not sin.
They strive to train the addict and the church, never to use the word sin when
referring to alcoholism or drug addiction. They teach the church and the addict
that addictions are not a choice or a free will thing. They promote and teach
the addict and the church to accept relapses and the resultant misconduct of
those under the influence as acceptable long-term, no matter how damaging.
Brothers and sisters, we know these are false doctrines found
nowhere in the Bible, that if followed will lead to death or great harm to the
addict and the public as well.
Lord Jesus Christ speaks
to the churches: Luk 16:13
No servant can
serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the
other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve
God and mammon.
REMEMBER JUDAS ISCARIOT
Again, holy people, no
one is against taxes, for certainly our Lord and Saviour paid them. It would
take a whole other study to more fully examine the IRS churches regarding their
true nature within the framework of the gospel, and the constitutionality of
their existence, but feel free to study this further on your own.
From the earliest beginnings,
brothers and sisters, we know that God forbade the priests from charging money
to do His service. To those priests who were in it for the money God spoke
directly: Malachi 1:10 Who is
there even among you that would shut the doors for nought? neither do
ye kindle fire on mine altar for nought. I have no pleasure in you,
saith the LORD of hosts, neither will I accept an offering at your hand.
Holy brethren, we know
and fully understand that God left His witnesses for us to follow and know how
to deal with any who forbid us to speak anything about God to people, or to offer
us money to purchase from us some facet of God’s power. We got brother Daniel Dan 6:10; We
got brothers: Dan 3:16Shadrach,
Meshach, and Abednego 17-
18, we got our brothers and
apostles Peter and John: Acts 4: 18-20.
When somebody offered money to purchase some facet of God’s power we got a
fearless witness in brother Peter: Act 8:20 But
Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee,
because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.
What does the Lord
command, holy people?: 2 Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally
yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with
unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15And what concord hath
Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16And what agreement
hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as
God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will
be their God, and they shall be my people. 17Wherefore come out
from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the
unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18And will be a Father
unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
Saints (G40 hagios), what
the true church of Jesus Christ has to offer to the whole world including the
addict in or out of the church that is far better and different than that
offered in the secular or world or the IRS churches is the unbeatable truth of God.
This is because we know the power of God, the superior wisdom and the
unbeatable power of God that we know cannot lie, for it is impossible for Him
to lie, or make a mistake or commit error, according to the eternal inerrant Bible,
not the word of mere men.
