Like a lot of families, the family I was adopted by has had its drug use issues by different members. Thank God they are all in the past now and have been for some time. I have heard lots of stories and opinions about these experiences. None of them good. In fact, we have a Drug and Alcohol Counselor in the family who has “been there and done that”. The road back for that person was thru God and the 12 step program. Now his job (and passion) is to help others escape from where he was and he is very good at it.
After listening and doing some studying on my own I just can’t accept drug addiction or alcoholism as a disease, which the 12 step program portrays it as (not to take away the limited success this program has had). For one thing, if it’s a disease why would it keep you from going to heaven? You can still go to heaven if you have cancer or diabetes or arthritis, but is says in the word that the drunkard and those who practice pharmakia (drug use) will not inherit the kingdom of heaven. So there has to be something more at work here.
My thoughts are that drug addiction is a “gateway” to the demonic world (or demention) where that person is either possessed by or controlled by these evil spirits. Stories, particularly with psychotropic drugs, make me believe that all the more. I have also looked into the eyes of different ones using Meth, or Heroin and that person is “just not there” anymore. Their eyes seemed dead. That other wise funny, caring, smart person is gone and replaced by something evil.
The video below gives credibility from a Christian perspective, for me anyway, that what I think is true. I will let you decide for yourself. It’s a long one, but very provocative. I hope you will take the time to see it thru.
