"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.
