Overcoming the Dictators of the Soul - Lusts & Addictions
Deep in our soul are hidden various aspects of lusts and addictions. Our lusts are many, ranging from the things we like, desire, or feel the urge to fulfill. Our addictions are fewer, as we concentrate on additive habits that we feel are of necessity. We have to face and deal with our lusts and addictions harshly because as dictators they have a powerful grip on us. The force and goal of our lusts and addictions is to destroy us rather than fulfilling our desires. In the end, they take away the security we seek. While we with God's help can control lusts, addictions have to be broken. This book goes beyond a look at the forces behind lusts and addictions to an understanding of how to overcome and maintain victory over any force of destruction. Learn God's secrets to overcoming the dictators connected with your life.
