“We get into trouble when we think too highly of ourselves, or when we deceive ourselves into thinking that we have more moral fiber than our neighbor. … None of us has climbed out of the mire of sin with our own moral boot straps. … As someone released from his own slavery to sin, a good friend shows an addict where to find life and hope. … Jesus Christ.”
Edward T. Welch, Addictions: A Banquet in the Grave, (Phillipsburg NJ: P&R Publishing, 2001), 39-40.
