I despise AA and all rehab facilities that lie to sinners, that desire to keep them in their bondage and have no power to change the sinner. That is why I so appreciate the ministry of John Lanagan and his tireless work on exposing AA...
Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit. (Jeremiah 2:11)
Why have so many rejected the Christ of the Bible?
Why have so many created a god of their ownunderstanding? What happened?
Emergent leader Phyllis Tickle knows one key reason.
“As Phyllis Tickle has noted, the development of Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) probably did as much as other, more celebrated events to undermine our concept of religion. Emerging in the late 1930s, AA made it acceptable to talk about a generic God–a ‘higher power.’” (bold mine) You can find this statement in A Heretic’s Guide To Eternity, by Spencer Burke (The Ooze) and Barry Taylor, pg. 34-35, foreword by Brian McLaren.
Burke and Taylor further note what AA has brought on us. Of course, they see it as a good thing: “Consequently, a generation of people began speaking about God in new ways not previously sanctioned by the consensual illusion–and traditional religious perspectives began to change as a result.”
Yes. And what a change it has been.
