What is the Reformed view of the 12 Step Program Models that are used by Churches to help Christians overcome compulsive sinful behaviors such as Sexual Sin, Getting Drunk, Drugs, Overeating etc.. Is there a place for such programs in the Church if the 12 Step Program is truly Biblically Based? I understand that the scripture teaches that these are not sicknesses but sin and I know all the verses that say those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God. My question is "are these programs wrong?" I am thinking about the verse "Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness, keeping watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ" Galatians 6:1-2 Which seems to say that a TRUE CHRISTIAN can be CAUGHT in a habitual sin (correct me if I am wrong). And that one is is MORE SPIRITUAL should "restore" that person. What does "RESTORATION" look like on a practical basis? Can a 12 Step Program be one of the means of "restoration"? Thanks.
