My Beloved Addiction is a book that begins with a focus on overcoming addiction but ends up being a journey in Christian discipleship. Addiction is an intense expression of the same sin and idolatry that is common to all people. What sets addicts apart from other people is the degree of devotion to their sin and their willingness to sacrifice all else for it. All people are addicts at heart. Those who would be considered non-addicts are held back from full-blown addictions by some influences in their life. Non-addicts are unwilling to sacrifice everything else to the selfish idol called addiction.Addiction is, first and foremost, a spiritual problem. As such, true victory over addiction requires a spiritual solution. Many programs for addicts have a spiritual component. Some direct the addict to a god who will give them the strength needed to be sober. Yet the spiritual component of such programs is viewed as a means to sobriety and only addresses the symptoms of addiction.
Discipleship is at the Heart of the Church. Each Christian is a disciple and should be making other disciples. This book is intended to jump start the process of disciple making. The lessons explore important matters such as defining faith, salvation, the goal of salvation, spiritual growth, the importance of Church involvement, and more. A Biblical Disciple is designed to be used either as a self study guide, a one on one discipleship tool, or as a text for a group study. Purchase on Amazon
