I will refuse to look at anything vile and vulgar. I hate all who deal crookedly; I will have nothing to do with them. I will reject perverse ideas and stay away from every evil. I will not tolerate people who slander their neighbors. I will not endure conceit and pride. I will search for faithful people to be my companions. Only those who are above reproach will be allowed to serve me. I will not allow deceivers to serve in my house, and liars will not stay in my presence. Psalms 101:3-7
It is vital in the recovery process we do not follow a program that undermines our faith in God. We need to learn how to discern the right things to believe, do and follow. Honesty in the process is not an optional extra. It says in the ‘Big Book’ of Alcoholics Anonymous it is “a process that demands rigorous honesty” Rejecting ideas and people who may present the ‘easier, softer way’ is also important.
