: : You must only have faith and your need for medication will nolonger exist. God bless you
: : : I want to stop taking my medicine and trust in the lord to heal me. Has anybody out there been healed by Jesus. If you have I would really like to hear from you. I really want to live free from medication.
: A person who had that kind of faith would have viewed addiction as a sin and would not have become an addict. You can't turn on faith just when you need it, that's just self serving behavior.
It is true that we can't just turn faith on when we want it, we have to ask God for it, and He gives it if we are truly wanting it...He knows the truth about us.
But since we are discussing whether or not Jesus will help, every person mentioned in the Bible sinned.
We all sin in some way. Repentence is a turning from sin...so one may believe and still sin, The Apostle Paul said he did, but that person if he/she believes will at some point turn around and admit a behaviour was sin, then will forsake the sin.
Jesus offers new beginnings, forgiveness, and new hope daily to anyone that wants it. As long as we have breath it is never too late to turn around.
