I moved to Austin to escape a unhealthy lifestyle. A lifestyle that disrespected the Most High, by my actions I trampled on the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ. It’s so easy to pretend on Sundays that I had myself all together but the rest of the week I lived like a heathen and denied Christ by my actions. I knew I had to make a change and asked God for assistance, the assistance came.
Someone told me about sober living homes and I looked them up on the internet. Oxford House is the first thing that came up, I called the place and by God’s grace the first house I called had a vacancy. A week later I went and was interviewed by the house and was accepted. God is good. Of course the house has rules and that’s understandable. No drinking (alcohol) nor drugging is one of the major rules that we must follow. I really enjoy this rule because I know that one slip up can cause me to lose this blessing which was given to me by God. A Christian should show discipline when it comes to obeying the Most High, Christ Jesus died on a Roman cross to forgive us of our sins and set us free from the chains of sin and eternal punishment in a Devil’s Hell. So why continue to live rebellious.
Alcoholics Anonymous was brought to my attention and I was encouraged to start going to meetings. I have known about A.A. for a few years because many years ago when I was on probation and parole my probation/parole officers made me attend meetings and to add insult to injury I was given a card that the “chairperson” would sign at the end of the meeting to prove to my P.O. that I attended the meeting. That however did not last long because once I figured out who had the easiest signature to forge I was gone.
Back to the present.
I started going to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings here in Austin and must admit that I enjoyed it, at first. I even received my first coin! It’s crimson and celebrates thirty days clean and sober (throughout a period of time one will continue to receive colorful coins as they stay sober). Of course I know that it’s only by the grace of God that I’ve been sober this long, today marks about a month and a half, God is good. I had a sponsor as well and was working the “steps” with him, if I was still in the program I would be on step four. However, A.A. is not of God no matter what any member will try to tell you. A.A. is a antichrist religion that preaches ecumenical, universalist lies. Look into it’s history and you will soon learn about its Jesuit roots, even the founders (William Griffith Wilson and Robert Holbrook Smith) were occult practitioners known to use Ouija boards and having a spirit room. Now A.A. will tell you that it has “Christian roots” and that the “Big Book” is based on the Holy Bible but my question is what does that mean? It means nothing! Does the God of the Bible condone such behavior as using a Ouija board or consulting familiar spirits? No! Necromancy and clairvoyance are condemned and forbidden by the Most High!
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 KJV
 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,  Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
Alcoholics Anonymous denies Christ Jesus in their actions and teachings.
Sitting in those meetings I heard a lot of blasphemous statements about God, sadly it is encouraged by what is known as the “Big Book“. This book contains the practices, guidelines, and rules of Alcoholics Anonymous. By many of the members the “Big Book” is worshipped and treated as divinely inspired and the meetings are in a sense their worship services. I say that because one of their core beliefs is that one must find a god, this god can be anything! Even a doorknob or person if it can help the drunkard put the bottle down. BLASPHEMY!!! There’s only one GOD and we learn about Him in the Bible which is the only book inspired (by God Himself) in all of creation.
Psalm 86:10 KJV
 For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.
John 17:3 KJV
 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
According to the members of Alcoholics Anonymous one’s god is the god of their “own understanding” or as the individual has understood it. Nonsense because any belief or understanding of God contrary to the Holy Bible is a heretical/blasphemous belief! Over and over again in these meetings so many false references are made about God and spoken of as if He’s simply the Universe instead of the Creator of it. He’s also often referred to as a female and that again is a blatant blasphemy.
Alcoholics Anonymous also teaches that alcoholism is a disease and that all who suffer from it will never be healed but will always be an alcoholic in recovery, this is a lie from the Devil himself! The Holy Bible never calls an alcoholic “sick”, it calls him a “drunkard” it’s sin not a disease. Also Christ Jesus can and will set us free from anything that can destroy us and alcoholism is one of those things, to say that we’ll always be drunks and in “recovery” is doubting the almighty power of GOD!
John 8:36 KJV
 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Another thing about “having a god of one’s own understanding” is that our view of God goes two ways. It’s either right and biblical or wrong and pagan. There’s only one God and that’s the God of the Bible and if we’re to truly worship Him and have a relationship with Him then it has to be done in spirit and in truth. Christ Jesus is the greatest example of how we’re to live our lives and this includes how we ought to worship the Father especially the Christian individual.
John 4:24 KJV
 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Many Alcoholics Anonymous members during a meeting continually speak about their “higher power” (which is a false god) by lifting it up in a form of worship yet they curse like sailors! I understand that no one is perfect and we will make mistakes but if I can speak about the Most High and Jesus the Christ and use a ton of profanity without any conviction then there is a major problem. We are to show a very deep respect for a thrice holy God!
Alcoholics Anonymous members also believe in a form of works based salvation, as alcoholics in their doctrine they are taught that they must go out and save other alcoholics. Again, only Christ can accomplish that. Now I understand that people want to help others and may be able to but how can anyone be delivered when the deliverer may not even believe in Christ Jesus but views the Universe or Mother Nature as their “higher power”. This is a vain insanity! Some claim that the program has helped them, yet how can a program like the “twelve steps” help anyone when it teaches another Jesus and that the individual is forever lost in their sin.
Finding a sponsor is encouraged as well and fellowship is great but as a Christian the only fellowship and support we should surround ourselves with is that of a fellow disciple of Christ. We don’t need Alcoholics Anonymous! We don’t need a God hating sponsor! We need the CHURCH!!!
Galatians 6:2 KJV
 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
How can the world bear our burdens or fulfill the law of Christ, it is impossible. Scripture also gives us examples not to cultivate relationships with world and to stay away from it. How can we possibly find fellowship or agreement with an agnostic, antichrist program that hates God!
2 Corinthians 6:14-18 KJV
 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them ; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing ; and I will receive you,  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
We’re to get our steps or program from the Holy Bible, nothing else. If the God of the Bible, the only true God, were to be the focus of Alcoholics Anonymous then the “Big Book” would be placed in the trash where it belongs and Holy Bibles would be handed out. Faith in sponsors and the “program” would be exchanged for faith in Christ Jesus our Lord.
