AA and Common Bondage of Sin

Today Scot is hosting the fifth post in the series looking at what the Church can learn from AA. Today’s topic is addiction. In this one, I’ve included a long collection of New Testament scriptures that I think lead to a bold claim: We are all addicts. Or, to say it another way, we are all, as far as our sinful nature is concerned, slaves to sin. We all need to die daily to have and give the new life in Christ, and that’s at the core of the steps. Come by and enjoy today’s discussion!

Also, in the near future, I’m going to be revamping our tab here on our site for the “12 steps” to include all the posts in the series, mainly to answer the questions of “Why, as a Christian without any addiction issues, would I work the steps or do anything the support groups do?” and, relatedly, “How would support group practices, including the steps, tie in to a biblical faith in Jesus?”

Thoughts?
