PP164 Addictions: A Biblical Understanding & Response

Home » PP164 Addictions: A Biblical Understanding & Response

A longer episode, but an important one! Many of us struggle with addictive behaviour. The addiction may be simple and not seem to harmful at the moment, but it can quickly become complex and lead us into deeper sin. Guest host, Josh Smith (M.A. in Counseling, LPC in the State of Michigan), helps us to understand what addictions are, why we struggle with them, and most importantly, how we can overcome them by the grace of God. The discussion near the end on the four tools of the enemy (Access, Appetite, Anonymity, and Atheism) are particularly helpful. Josh has also provided these links as further resources for you on this topic.
