Then why does he love what he knows is a sinful lifestyle, so much that he won't give it up and exchange it for the peace and joy that is in Christ? He needs to humble himself and, giving up his pride, call on the Lord. The bible tells us to choose whom we will serve, and it's an "either-or" equation. Christ is either Lord of your life or He isn't.He knows he is living a sinful life.
Yes, and the Holy Spirit will lead him to Christ if he will listen and accept what he hears.And I believe the Holy Spirit is working on him to bring him to Christ.
Nope.Being baptized will not stop a drug addits cravings for drugs.
True.But being a child of GOD will insure GOD will bless him with strength to over come his problems if he is willing and sincere in stopping.
I'm not sure why you are so hung up on baptism, Willy, but you are putting the cart before the horse in regard to it. I sincerely wish you would put it out of your mind and concentrate on the things your friend needs to do right now.So should a drug user not be baptized until AFTER he has kicked the habit?
A drug addict, or any sinner needs to call upon the Lord and confess and repent of his sins. Any problems the person may or may not have- financial, sexual, health-related, or whatever, are things that God deals with in conjunction with His giving salvation to us after we have surrendered to Him.
I'm sorry if I am not explaining myself well enough to you.......
