The Transformation Series: Destigmatizing Addiction


Hope through the Gospel

by Mark E. Shaw

The issue of stigmatization pierces deeply into the identity of an individual person. Forgiveness in Jesus Christ provides the once addicted believer with a new identity—one who is no longer stigmatized by past choices and behaviors (2 Corinthians 5:17-21). The biblical approach to addiction provides hope, practical help, and an incredible new life in Christ.
