Hey, give me a minute:


{xtypo_rounded1}“The final sin of man, said Luther truly, is his unwillingness to concede that he is a sinner.”

                                    Reinhold Niebuhr, Nature and Destiny of Man{/xtypo_rounded1}

           {xtypo_dropcap}O{/xtypo_dropcap}ne of the most significant factors in the aiding of an individual with an addiction problem whether it is alcohol, drugs, pornography or gambling is the person first willing to admit that they have a problem. Often the problem can be seen by all of those around them yet the addict themselves can not see it for themselves. Thus the desire to make a change in their life is non-existent. Family and friends go to great lengths to help the individual to see their life for what it truly is and some even hold interventions which are designed to confront the addict with the issues that their lifestyle are bringing to the family unit.

            However, the fact remains that until the addict views their behavior as addictive and destructive the chances of recovery are slim. So it is with the issue of Sin, before a person can come to know Christ in the pardon and forgiveness of sin they must come to the realization that they are a sinner and only upon this realization can there be the understanding of a need for a Savior (a forgiver of sin). It is important as we evangelize that frustration over what may be viewed as “failures” or “limited success” do not hinder our final goal of reaching the Lost. We can insure that this doesn’t happen by remembering that we to at one time had to acknowledge our need for a Savior.

Time’s up.
