Dr. George Sweeting tells a story about the tragedy of addictions. One day he watched several blocks of ice floating down a river at Niagara Falls. Curiously, several birds floated above water looking for fish. One sea gull spotted a fish frozen in one of the blocks of ice that was hurling speedily toward the giant water fall. Without realizing the danger ahead, the bird grabbed the piece of ice with part of the carcass of the dead fish embedded in it. Riding on the block of ice, the bird did not realize that its feet had frozen on to the ice block. As the bird tried to fly away when it sensed its impending doom it was too late. The bird died, stuck to the ice block as it plummeted to its death because of its addiction to fish. Many Christians fail to see how slowly their lusts, secret sins and subtle addictions lead them to self-destructive tendencies. Only the power of the Holy Spirit working through the word of God frees us as Jesus said, "You will know the truth and the truth will set you free." (JOhn 8:31,32)
