Alcoholics Anonymous: Do You Believe?

This is a powerful new article just published by Dick B. on; Articlesbase; several social network forums; searchwarp; and sent out by newsletter to his large subscriber list.

Do you believe God raised Jesus from the dead?
Do you believe Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead?
Do you believe Peter raised Tabitha from the dead?
Do you believe Paul raised Eutychus from the dead?

As Bill Wilson wrote in the Big Book: God either is or He isn't. The phrase was not new. The idea came from the writings of Blaise Pascal and was quoted by Bill's spiritual teacher Rev. Samuel M. Shoemaker, Jr., rector of Calvary Episcopal Church in New York.

Each of the first three AAs believed in God, was given a Christian upbringing, and had studied the Bible extensively. All three spurned God's help in favor of drunkenness. But when they finally decided they had had enough, they turned to God for help, believed He would come through, and were healed by the power and love of God.

Don't miss this important article which succinctly explains it's all about belief. Belief in God. Belief in Jesus Christ. Belief in the Bible. And belief that with God nothing is impossible. If the four accounts of raising of the dead are believed, why not believe the obvious and well documented history of the early cures of alcoholism among those Christian A.A. pioneers who believed.

God Bless, Dick B.
