If I have perverted addictions which I cant kick, does that mean Im guaranteed to go to hell?

If I have perverted addictions which I can’t kick, does that mean I’m guaranteed to go to hell? Or does faith in Jesus rescue me despite my inability to change?

    If you keep following the ways of a god and nothing changes maybe you're following the wrong god. Read the old testament, nobody who has ever had a relationship with God ever had to believe in someone else to find him. Abraham became God's personal friend and he never had to believe in anyone other than God himself and he never had to go through someone else or invoke any name other than his to find him. Only those who have searched for him directly and have worshipped him directly have been the ones who have found him.

    All those who keep putting their faith in intermediaries and believing in those gatekeeping God from them have and invoking and worshipping names that are not his name have never found him.

        Yes. Jesus said not to call him good because only God is good so he is clearly saying he is not God.

        There is only one God. There are no different types of God. Only The Almighty is God. There is no other. He made this very clear.

          One God in three persons, haven't you read the Bible? Please read the israelites' responses to Jesus' sayings too
          Colossians 2:8-9 "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily."
          Hebrews 1:1-3 "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;"
          Hebrews 1:8-12 "But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 9Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. 10And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: 11They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; 12And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail."
          Titus 2:13 "Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;"
          1 Timothy 3:16 "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."

            Show me anywhere in the Old Testament which is the place where God himself speaks in first person, where God himself appears and is the main character and his own words are recorded, anywhere in there, anything that justifies the belief that God is divided into three separate entities.

          • 2 weeks ago

            I don't recall hearing of any Christian ever God being three separate entities,
            1 John 5:7 "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."
            Genesis 1:26-27 "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
            You could also look into the weird phenomenon of God being referenced in the third person in an illogical way (if you don't consider the fact that God is multiple persons in one essence) like Genesis 2:3, Genesis 9:16, etc.

            That verses says nothing about God being tree, God is simply talking to his angels. It is obvious that God is not alone in heaven, he has countless servants ministering to him day and night. When he appeared to Isaiah he had two cherubs at his sides ministering to him. And when he appeared to Ezekiel he also had other beings with him.

            In Deuteronomy Moses told the Israelites: "To you it was shown, that you might know that Yahweh is God; there is no other besides him."

            You are claiming that there is someone other than Yahweh, Jesus, that is also God. Moses would have said, Yahweh is God, and Jesus is also God and the Holy Spirit is also God. But he said, Yahweh is God and there is no other besides him. So God is not Yahweh, Jesus and Holy Ghost, God is Yahweh alone and no one else.

            Yahweh does not mean God, Yahweh is the name of the person who is God. Elohim. Moses said Yahweh is the Elohim and there is no other person who is Elohim but him. The only person who is God is Yahweh.

            Funny how Elohim is a plural of Eloah and sometimes Eloah is used to refer to God. Idk how you can misunderstand how "Let us" and "created he" and "our likeness" and "his own image" literally refers solely to God Himself in the plural and then solely to Him in the singular, unless you cannot/aren't willing to accept it. I never said that YHVH means God, that's the name of the Trinitarian God

            Also please realize that a father and a son cannot be equal. A son comes from his father, a father does not comes from his son. A father had to exist first, and a son came afterwards.

            A son is the creation of his father so he is superior to him, the son bows down to the father and honors him. A father does not bow down to a son. A son must obey his father and do whatever he commands, a father does not obey his son, his son has no authority over his father or can give him orders. A father and a son cannot share the same rank. A prince is not a king. A prince does not rule along with the king. The king alone rules and the princes are only given authority by the king at his discretion.

            In a kingdom there is only one King. There can be 100 queens and 10,000 princes, but there will always only be one King.

    If you are referring to pornography addiction, I'm afraid so.
    You go to who your god is and your god is not love.
    Recognize that it is wrong and change yourself, bit by bit, one failure after another, and never look back

    Hard to call something wrong when everyone's doing it. Hence why you need God.
    Remember that jacking it to porn is bad because you are contributing to a system that glorifies the destruction of human dignity and parades moral degeneration

            The Bible is basically vague on the degree to which someone can keep sinning. In some parts it says that people with Jesus sin no more, and we need to show our faith by changing or else our faith isn’t real, and in other parts it talks about how continuing in sin is inevitable and anyone who says they are without sin is a liar. In the end I suppose it just comes down to the extent to which you believe Jesus’ word.

        Anyway to answer your question OP, you have to ask yourself one: Do you truly want to quit, or do you just want to feel less guilty? If the former, then your own will is all that's required. If the latter, you have three choices:
        >attempt to quit anyway, while this will also just require will it requires a TON more (although this will also mean it's a bigger accomplishment to be proud of)
