God Is All Inclusive

June 13, 2023

In a society that seeks to be “inclusive,” it should come as welcome news that God has indeed included everyone. Unfortunately, it’s not “everyone goes to heaven.” Rather, it is that we are all sinners.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23)
There is not one single person who has ever lived, save Jesus himself, who is entirely without sin. That is generally understood, and few would argue that it is not true.
But there is another area of life that we sometimes dismissively think is the problem of other people: addiction.
According to a recent survey conducted by Pew Research Center, almost half of all families in America have a relative or close friend who is addicted to alcohol or drugs. If you take into account that pornography, shopping, and food can be addictions as well, the number would likely be close to 100%.
Addiction is a universal problem—a SIN problem—and no family, denomination, or people group is immune.
(Perhaps you are one of the few who do not have a family member that has been, or is currently, addicted to drugs, alcohol, or pornography. If so, then praise God. But keep reading, because we need you too.)
For the last five years, No Greater Joy’s Light Bearers have been sending free copies of Good and Evil to inmates across North America. As of today, over 100,000 books have been placed into the hands of men and women, and the eternal destinies of many of them and their families have been changed.
According to NIAAA (the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism), 10% of the population in the US has had a substance abuse disorder in their lives; that is 33,600,161 men, women, brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, pastors, friends, and neighbors.
Many of those in addiction have “tried church” and found it wanting. Because of past experiences, resentments, and hurts, they are not open to traditional evangelism; some are even hostile toward what they need, which is the same thing that everyone needs: the gospel of Jesus Christ. Once again, God is inclusive. He has one cure to administer to all who will take it.
Giving those in treatment centers, hospitals, and detox units a copy of Good and Evil is not just giving them a comic book to pass the time. It is giving them the gospel, presented in a way that they have never seen before. And it continues to work for thousands of people.
We have a unique opportunity to reach men and women who are seeking recovery from alcohol

and drugs. YOU have a unique opportunity.
You can visit our website to send a copy to an inmate or treatment center resident, or email Adam at: [email protected].
There are many people who will tell you that the gospel will not break the chains of addiction. I know for a fact that is not true, because it did for me. God did for me what I could never do for myself; he made me free.
But there are many more out there who still need to be reached. Let’s go and get them.
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
