In this series, we will dissect the mainstream 12 step programs and prove point by point why its totally unless and why it shouldn't be used on people that suffer from game addiction
This is step number 6.
Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
Once again, no disrespect to religious people, but in the Bible, God says that everyone has a free will. This means this the 6th step doesn't even make any sense in the spiritual point of view as they claim were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character as the two stamens contradict each other. We cannot first claim that God gave us free will, and then turn to god require changing us whenever we can't handle it. Its unfair both God and ourselves, because that means we have given up. By any definition, this is unfair to God. Why require him to remove our defects of character? Patterns and habits shape our character, not God. How about this for a change of character, just a random example from the top of my head.
Monday, you spend 1 hour on your body, gym, treadmill, long walk or however you want to define it.
Wednesday, you only eat healthy food, it can be all vegetarian, green drinks, carb-free, meat-free, or whatever diet theory you believe in.
Friday, you spend 2 hours cleaning up your apartment or house. Sunday, you spend quality time with your family.
Don't you think that just these 4 things shape your character within a matter of a few weeks? Of course, they would! It's not God that sends Us to the gym. It's not God that puts us on a diet, and it's not God that is telling us to take care of our home, it's not God that is forcing us to spend quality time with your family. The ball is in our hand. The same goes for the game addict. It's in his or her hands to not log on the game.
The real step should be.
I'm responsible for my character shape. I'm the only one that can decide to do it whenever I want to.
