The eighth in a series of 16 “blog bites” answering anticipated objections to material set forth in A Way of Escape, i.e., the eighth in a series of 16 “blog bites” answering anticipated FAQs.
OBJECTION #8 (of 16)
Millions have been helped by accountability-based purity programs. And now you’re telling us that you have come up with an escape-without-accountability battle plan. Why would anyone want to try your new-fangled battle plan when accountability-based programs are already reporting great success in Christian (and non-Christian) circles?
Reason #2 (of 2) for why the still-struggling believer might wish to go with the Way of Escape Battle Plan instead of an accountability-based option:
2) Ease of Escape: Advocates of accountability openly acknowledge that accountability-based escape (= group-aided starving of the flesh) may be the hardest thing that an addict will ever do in his life. On the other hand, escape in the Way of Escape Battle Plan is accomplished by repeatedly popping a DVD into a DVD player and drowning oneself in the Holy Spirit. Easy-Peasy!
It is always easier to “Feed the Spirit” than to “Starve the Flesh.”
Much, much easier.

A GAME-CHANGING BOOK HAS ARRIVED
In A Way of Escape, readers learn how to build an easier-to-navigate, escape-without-accountability battle plan. Readers learn how to step up the degree to which they “walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:16). They learn how to build a library of Spirit-anointed, flesh-diffusing apps. Apps that are uniquely fitted to them, and their unique Spirit-filling triggers.
I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh (Galatians 5:16).
The still-struggling now have another option. The still-struggling now have fresh hope for discovering that long-sought-after way of escape from sin and temptation (I Corinthians 10:13). A way that—because it is wholly Spirit-powered—does not require enlisting the aid of an accountability partner or group. Truly, a game-changer!
