Everyone of us is a potential addict. And eventually, every addict finds himself at a crossroads.

In a pressure-filled world, the prospect of instant escape can be exhilarating. No matter the object—drugs, alcohol, food, gambling, or sex, just to name a few—addictions lure us. They extend the promise of pleasure. In the end, they deliver emptiness, death, and destruction. What began as an escape from the hassles of life becomes a form of bondage. Addiction is voluntary slavery. Change doesn't come easily. But change is possible!

Perhaps you heard. A 16-year-old from Texas killed four people in a drunken car crash.[1] He was spared incarceration and given only probation. A witness for the defense, a psychologist, argued that the court should consider the mitigating circumstance of “affluenza”—that nasty affliction among wealthy children who thought parental money could spare them from bad circumstances.

Where Is God in the Struggle?

Looking away from despair towards hope can feel risky. What if God doesn't come through for you? What if you don't feel instantly better?

Originally published as Depression: A Stubborn Darkness: Light for the Path, this new edition is updated with added content.

A worship disorder. This is how Ed views addictions. "Will we worship our own desires or will we worship the true God?"

There we learn the addict's true condition: like guests at a banquet thrown by "the woman Folly," he is already in the grave (Proverbs 9:13-18). Can we not escape our addictions?
