I have some personal experience in dealing with people of differing theological perspectives who are struggling with various sinful addictions (which we don't need to discuss in detail here). The topic of discussion is regarding how one might confront a personal addiction if they are of the more "reformed" tradition versus the more "free-will" tradition. In MY experience, which doesn't mean its true of every situation, it appears that those of the more 'reformed' belief tend to 'wait on God to change them' or tend to think their nature can only be changed by a supernatural and irresistible working of God thus even their addictive behavior is only going to be corrected by God's doing (though I KNOW they would explain it differently). Those of the free-will belief tend to blame themselves and seek help from others more readily. They know that their will is theirs and thus it is their responsibility to take the steps to change it with the help of God and others. Again, I KNOW these are generalities, but having been one who held to both systems of thought I do recognize in me more of a willingness to take ownership of my behavior, choices and recovery than I did as a Calvinist. Even if you know the practicality of your theological system doesn't dismiss your obligations there is an affect on one who believes that their sinful habits and addictive behaviors was ordained by God so that it could not have been otherwise...and even more so when you believe the healing or recovery is completely dependent upon the same. What say you? Do you find yourself or others reacting differently to sinful behavior and addictions based upon their theological views?
