Those that are in sin are dead. Does that seem harsh? Again, what does God’s word say about it? The apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians 2:1-3, “And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience-- among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind”. Notice that Paul writes in the past tense here, because he is writing to Christian believers who have been saved and set free from sin and death and raised up to life in Jesus Christ.
Alcoholics Anonymous is a slow parade of the walking dead, plodding along the same twelve steps year after year in a mindless day to day maintenance of sobriety. The walking dead of Alcoholics Anonymous lay their sins of alcoholism and addiction on the altar of Alcoholics Anonymous and continue walking dead and blind into the sinful destruction of idolatry chanting the same pathetic mantras to one another at each meeting of the dead; “Keep coming back - it works if you work it”, “One day at a time”, “Keep it simple”, “Easy does it”, etc, etc, etc...
In Alcoholics Anonymous there is no truth, there is no salvation, there is no life, there is just death, idolatry and an obsession with sobriety. The blind sponsor leading the blind newcomer through twelve steps to eventual destruction.
The good news is that there is one everlasting truth, there is eternal salvation, there is forgiveness for sin, there is life and joy and peace and glory and true happiness for all eternity - and it is only through one pure and glorious way. That way is through the person of Jesus Christ.
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. - Colossians 3:1-2
and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, - Romans 3:23-24
