Despite rampant drug and alcohol addiction (he famously said cocaine was “God’s way of telling you you’re making too much money”), Robin easily found big-screen stardom. – Fox News

Have written before concerning Robin Williams, the comic and how there is nothing funny about the end of sin therefor the point today is that constant stimulation of the mind destroys the brain. Robin Williams was a “stimulus junkie” because he refused to repent of his sins.
It was Robin Williams addiction to sin that destroyed him. Robin Williams humor derived its power from “rampant drug and alcohol addiction.” In short, Robin Williams burned his brains out.
Sad to say many are on this self-destructive road. Indeed, Law Enforcement, the few who have honestly talked to me about their struggles admit to being “adrenaline junkies.”
The first pleasures from stimulation, comic or drug-induced, goes from stimulation than to dependence and finally to death of the soul.
Consider your condition: The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing.1
By default, sin has made us hardwired for addiction to anything.
Be it humor, folly, computer games, knowledge, rest, iPhones, sexual or power “addiction” man can become addicted to pretty much anything.
Because we, men and women, are separated from obedience to the Living God. Never underestimate the power to become addicted. Consider the attempt to not eat that chocolate brownie sitting on the plate in front of you. Just another reason why zero tolerance policies and just say no are conceptual concepts based on fraud. In short, they never work because they are lies.
It is only the Christian, the true Christian, that has the ability to “not be mastered by anything.” Rules, government or religious, will not stop the addiction of sin. Just saying “no” will not stop addiction and certainly accepting governmental propaganda to solve your problems will not stop the addiction. Truth be told, following the Bible will not stop addictions.
While the #1 addiction are lies many individuals just keep trading one addiction for another. Stop smoking and you gain 15 pounds. Attempt to stop drinking and self-pity becomes the drink of choice. One church doesn’t work so you look for another. And so on.
“Everything is permissible for me”–but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me”–but I will not be mastered by anything. (1 Corinthians 6:12)
For the few, those very few who desire to be set free God has a ready and willing answer that He is putting before you. It is at first an offensive, troubling message but like any good physician talking to an individual with a life-threatening condition, first, the bad news is presented before offering possible solutions. Indeed, denial of the problem must be replaced by the denial of self. A concept for which King County Prosecutors of Seattle Washington will take you to court over. One reason, out of several, is that Prosecutor Dan Satterberg and his followers like any unreasoning junkie addicted to heroin are addicted to power. [see www.hardtruth.us]
The solution is to seek the Living God in such a way that He gives your mind, heart, soul and strength rest. Such requires repentance, humility, and obedience, but to those who pursue such rest is given. You can’t fake it, you can’t apply it yourself and you certainly can’t keep your corrupt life if you want a new overcoming one.
Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it….
…It still remains that some will enter that rest, and those who formerly had the gospel preached to them did not go in, because of their disobedience.
…There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience.
…Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:1-16)
Blessed are those who are on such intimate terms with God that they can confidently approach God for the grace to be able to rest.
What a wonderful God I serve.
[ Bonus Wisdom ]
This is why David of the Old Testament writes that God has to “make us” lie down and rest. Sin is a restless, demanding and a relentless enemy for which only God can give us peace, joy and rest.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. (Psalm 23:2-3)
Such blessings are only on the paths of righteousness as He guides.
Any other road, religious or not, traps one in a dead-end corner.
