I have posted this thread at the Religion, Faith, and Theology site and I pray it will reach those in need. This thread is designed to give you what some of you need…… direction and help!

This is a calling out to the abused, lost, confused, fearful, angry, addicts of all kinds, people trapped in the occult and to those struggling with their daily lives.

WARNING: To those who find the Christian beliefs wrong and offensive PLEASE STOP HERE AND READ NO FURTHER. Information provided in this thread are for those who do or want to believe in the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit and not debate and argue about it.

How would you like to be able to release all the guilt inside of you that you have stored up all of your life and for once and all……to be able to let it go? To stop all those negative thoughts from racing through your mind? To stop the voices inside your head and have silence? To be able to truly forgive someone who has mistreated you and have done you wrong? I pray this thread is a blessing to you.

I am not a professional or licensed therapist, medical or psychological practitioner. If you are on medication continue taking it and follow your doctor’s advice. Many have sought out secular treatments that have cost thousands of dollars; which have not worked. Why? Because they thought their problem was a physical problem when actually it is a spiritual problem. Simply I am a man of God who counsels and helps those who seek out God. A God who does love you and cares for you.

Some of you will find the enclosed information very helpful while others will struggle with it. This material is only the beginning and NOT the end of your studies. It will take anywhere from three to five hours to complete the material. There will be many who will need additional time due to the “ongoing war within your mind”.

Ephesians 6:12, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

For those of you who are battling an addiction i.e. alcohol, drugs and sex. This will be the first step towards your freedom. Many will need secular therapy. I suggest a Christian treatment center. CAUTION: Many secular treatment centers are not Christian based. I caution anyone going to one that is not based upon the teachings of the bible. Alcohol Anonymous (AA) is NOT a Christian secular treatment center.

In order for this material to work you must be honest with yourself. Those who refuse to look inside themselves or able to admit/accept what has happened in their lives will not succeed in finding peace.

To make this easy for you follow the following steps:

1. Print out the pamphlet.

2. Get a pencil so you can write/check the appropriate boxes.

3. Read the prayer on page three out loud.

4. Take your time and reread any section that you do not clearly understand.

To those of you who are struggling I suggest you reread the enclosed material over and maybe three or four times. I too struggled and often I found myself reading words that were not there or said words out loud that were NOT in the material.

Enclosed you will find a step by step guide called “Steps to Freedom with Christ” (23 pages). This pamphlet is designed to help you in resolving personal and spiritual conflicts. Following these 7 steps will free you from the many battles that your flesh and mind experience. All credit for these steps belong to Dr. Neil T. Anderson, a true man of God.

But before you get started a few words of caution:

1. If you experience some mental interference just ignore it and continue with the steps. Thoughts such as, “This isn’t going to work or I don’t believe this”, or blasphemous, condemning and accusing thoughts have no power over you unless you believe them.

2. If you have been diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), also known as multiple personality disorder or you are victim of Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) please do not attempt to complete these steps alone. Seek out a pastor or person of God who has the Holy Spirit within them for assistance. I know this can be difficult but there are many out there.

Remember: Read out loud all prayers inside the pamphlet. I would love to get feed back from those who have made an honest attempt with working with this pamphlet.

"Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. MATHEW 7:7

Just upload it to a file sharing site or google box or something. Is plenty of services around. If you're struggling someone like moi will do it for you I imagine.

Thanks for posting this. Christians need to be more aware of resources like this - particularly in a day and age where addiction (alcohol, sexual addition, drug addiction etc.) is so prolific.

My only suggestion is that you might want to consider changing the name of the thread. "Finding the Holy Spirit: The Christian Recipe" doesn't really describe the content of your OP - so if anyone comes floating around ATS that HAS an addiction, it's unlikely they'll come in here in response to the current title.

Thank you for your reply.

Not sure on how to change the title. System stated it has been over 8 hours and it is too late. '

For those who do not know the Holy Spirit or looking for God, they will find him with this material.....of course if their heart is in the right place.

I hope the material blesses you and please feel free to pass the material on to others.

God bless you.

This wouldn't even be an issue if people would read their friggin' manual i.e."The Holy Bible" section "New Testament". It takes more than just mouthing some words and presto change-o.

Take for example, when people pray for something and it doesn't come and they wonder why it seems like God isn't listening. That can be explained right here:

James 4:3

3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.

As with all things, there is a right way and a wrong way.

We chatted on another thread earlier. I mentioned about the new age religion. Anyways im a recovering alcoholic myself. Hey I was an alcoholics anonymous member myself for 3 years. I know the founders of AA had a spiritual experience themselves. Some spiritual entity instructed them to form AA. I would warn the young crowd of addicts though. AA is full of power trip enthusiasts and sexual predators. It's better that you join a certified counsellor for de-addiction.

Is Addiction a Sin or a Disease?

If it's a sin we'd confess to our personal God and we'd be healed/remitted. But that's not the case. It's a struggle.

If it's a disease how come so many treatment centers/specialists can't come up with the perfect cure?

I can translate (heavily) what you are suggesting, into my own (much simpler) form of understanding, so i'm not exactly disagreeing with WHAT you are saying (which would take an hour just to dissect and translate what I agree with/find despicable) but rather I am disagreeing with how you say it, which is usually used by people to derail the OP, but I honestly think this is an important point to make:

people will NEVER get better when they are told they must find "the right answers" and "the right place for treatment" because if you know anything about psychology, you might see how i frame this method of "helping someone" as being condescending and actually ENABLING any vicious cycles that they might be in. people must know how to help and heal themselves before they can use outside resources to aid in it..

My step-mom was raised Greek-Orthodox, never drank, or smoked, but knew how to party. she was extremely devoted to her faith but never evangelical..
3 years ago she dies of a rare cancer that lasted 2 and a half years..

I'd like you to use the Bible and your knowledge of "faith based therapy" to explain that sir.

Really? cuz that's the impression given by... just about every church out there? okay okay, i'm guessing you'll be going for the "that's Religion, not Faith" argument, but Faith still just implies to me that you are doing all of the "heavy-lifting" and then basically giving "God" credit for the accomplishment.. which is okay, because I define one's conscious as God, so.. I dunno. I just don't see why a middle-man is required.


James 4:3

3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.

As with all things, there is a right way and a wrong way.


where do I start? ugh.

perhaps you do not receive because... hmm.. you're JUST ASKING!? rather than actually pursuing your goals, people pray and attribute the hits-and-misses to God's "mysterious nature".. if this actually sounds like a good argument to you, I think we speak entirely different languages.

and.. there's a "right" and a "wrong" way of doing... what? not only do I not think this applies to ALL THINGS but.. I literally can't think of any examples besides "if you want to tighten a screw, turn it to the right" type examples.. which isn't what you were talking about..

Please, enlighten me..

PS: for an all-loving, understanding god.. God sure does seem to despise pleasure doesn't he..?
