"Addiction?"

Why do you think people become dependent on certain sinful lifestyles? Because it tastes bitter? Because of all the destruction and division? The reality of eternal punishment?

No, friends.

Wine, women, and song is the warmth you find under the wing of a dragon. It's the "heaven" you can see and experience now. You'll do anything for it. Love at first feel. Breaking all the rules. Nothing is more important. Your soul. Those you care for. They hold no sway to the priority at hand. This moment of release. The elixir which keeps your dreams young. Them familiar skies, roads, faces, music. The whispering wind. Roots weaned in illusion. The lava which masquerades of peace and freedom. It never goes away. Riders of the storm in a desert of peyote. White horses and a witches brew. Gas trees and woven blurs. Fragments of a broken mind. Bleeding eyes. Thoughts of dream and seismic imaginations. Nothing is more attractive to the flesh. The inner elements of euphoria, nostalgia, and oasis. Desires of myth and excess. The repetitive clinch. The serpents bite. The devil's footprint. A beast in white clothing. It is always waiting for your return.

The many woes behind the curtain of substance abuse.

That "thing" which keeps my people dying. I understand it most well. It's the crippling pain that wakes you up at night. It's the isolated sorrow that lingers in your heart when you must say goodbye. It's the darkness and void left behind. It's the never-ending agony that threatens us when we entertain change.

"Sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll." How did I ever leave the clutches of such a powerful adversary? Pay attention. The cure. By seeking greater power. By filling the void with the truth of Jesus Christ.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."

Young people. Stay away from fornication, alcohol & drugs. Bad company corrupts good morals.

I’ve been the exception to the rule. Most die out there.
