Purpose Driven 12 Step

Ken Fields has a great article on Rick Warren's addiction recovery program. Seems that Warren thinks you should fix yourself up before receiving Christ. Again the phsycological trumps the spiritual. Our self esteem over humility.

We must realize that we will never be good enough to save ourselves or to somehow fix our lives on our own without the grace of God.
Ken really hit the nail on the head with this:
The first step in helping people deal with their problems is to introduce them to Jesus Christ. Man's root problem is not his drinking habit or anger issue — man's greatest need isn't recovery or reform: man's root problem is sin and his greatest need is a Savior. If we really want to help those overcome by their sin, this will be our message!
