Addiction is a worship disorder. Will we worship ourselves and our own desires, or will we worship the true God? Scripture reveals addicts' true condition: like guests at a banquet thrown by "the woman Folly," they are already in the grave. (Prov. 9:13–18) Can we not escape our addictions? Ed Welch shows us that when we are following Jesus we have "immense hope that God can give power so that we are no longer mastered by the addiction."
