We DISCIPLE Christians IN Christ ...
“The Most Excellent Way” believes that once an individual (addicted or not) is born again, he or she has been "recovered" once and for all! Our old nature remains, and wars against our new spiritual nature. Without knowledge of the Scriptures, a babe in Christ does not have the resources to live a spiritually victorious life pleasing to God.
We disciple with the Word of God, "that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—"
(Ephesians 4:11-15 NKJV).

"Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as
His divine power has given to us ALL things that pertain to
life and godliness,
through the knowledge of Him who called us by
glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may
be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust."
2 Peter 1:2-4 NKJV
“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit,
and of joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents
of the heart.”
Hebrews 4:12 NKJV
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
For men will be lovers of themselves,
lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
having a form of godliness but denying its power.
2 Timothy 3:1-5 NKJV
For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD,
and He ponders all his paths.
His own iniquities entrap the wicked man, and he is
caught in the cords of his sin.
Proverbs 5:22-22 NKJV

“Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way
will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins.” ~James 5:19-20 NKJV
Remember, Satan is a deceiver. The best spiritualized self-help programs look like the real thing, but they are false substitutes. They replace biblical terms with psychological ones:
• Drunkenness is called the disease of alcoholism;
• Enslavement to sin is called addiction;
• Sin is called sickness or disease;
• Repentance and sanctification become recovery, working the program.
Consider the Biblical answers to the following questions HERE:
This is not a small quibble. Words express truth or error. The Biblical terms are important.
• We don't repent of sickness—we recover.
• We don't recover from sin — we repent.
Jesus answered and said to him,
"If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word;
and My Father will love him,
and We will come to him and make Our home with him.
He who does not love Me does not keep My words;
and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father's who sent Me.
"These things I have spoken to you while being present with you.
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name,
He will teach you all things,
and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you;
not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
John 14:23-27 NKJV

Psychological truth? Biblical truth? Isn't all truth God's truth?
We use modern medicine; why not use modern psychology?
What about my inner conflicts?
I have trouble relating to God as a loving Father because my biological father was abusive. Can't psychology help me work through the
repressed pain from my childhood?
Don't I need healthy self-esteem to be able to serve the Lord? Don't I
need to love myself properly so that I can love God and others properly?
What about my children’s self-esteem?
If God loves me, why do I have so much pain and suffering?
What can I do when Bible study, prayer, and obedience don't work?
What about complicated psychological problems?
What about the popular 12-step programs?
What about feelings?
What about counseling?
