What Causes Addiction?


 
 

Addiction is caused by seeking satisfaction where it cannot be found.

Psalm 17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

The world is Addicted to entertainment. Much of what is called Christendom is addicted to entertainment.

Drugs, rock, thrills, and other Addictions are a growing problem. People become Addicted to work, gambling, porn, over eating, promiscuity, possessions and many other things. Human beings were never created to be satisfied by such things. Only one thing really will satisfied, but until that day, we can be content because we have the Spirit of Christ.

When we look for satisfaction outside of Jesus Christ, we are looking in a place that cannot possibly satisfy us. Addiction is the result of trying to find satisfaction where no true, lasting, satisfaction can be found. When only a momentary satisfaction is found, the soon-to-be Addict tries to increase the experience in hope to achieve satisfaction. This cycle continues until the person is hooked.

Many Christians are looking for a deeper emotional experience instead of the Holy Spirit. As they do so, they quickly lose the ability to tell the difference between human emotion and the Holy Spirit. The riches in glory that are by the Spirit are amazing and too wonderful for words, but those who have become addicted to the entertainment church" will never find them. They have stunted their growth.

But we keep our eyes on Jesus. We look for that which can satisfy.

Romans 8:19-23 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

Until all of these things are fulfilled in your life, you can have a measure of fulfillment by walking in the Spirit. If you do, you will go from glory to glory and from faith to ever deeper faith.

2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
