The Drug Addict Is Not the Enemy , but the Drugs Are

But if an addict who believes in God and accepts some kind of authority of God over him is having difficulty breaking his addiction , or doesn’t want to , it is important to tell him that God does not want him on the drugs . And it may also be appropriate to tell him , with great love and all due gentleness , that drugs are often resorted to as a substitute for God’s grace and love , if a person is not feeling those things from God . That alone is probably insufficient for most believing addicts , but for many of them it may be a good initial step .
