RADIO PROGRAM No. 189 - The Way Out of Alcoholism

QUESTIONER: We're all aware of the humane efforts being made to help the alcoholic gain his freedom. But what can an individual do for himself when he feels he's at the end of his rope? Is there a way out for somebody in a situation like that?

SPEAKER: There most certainly is. Deep down within each individual there's the desire to be free. And when an individual looks to the prayer of spiritual understanding for release, he finds in accordance with Bible teachings that there's a spiritual basis for gaining that freedom.

Paul said in one of his letters to the Corinthians (I Cor. 10:13), "God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."
