We at Christian Alcoholic believe that addiction is not an incurable disease. We believe that the God who “heals all our diseases” (Psalms 103:3, ESV) indeed does heal all our diseases including addiction. We believe that we as Christians are not called to pretend to have it all together but are called to be honest and open with fellow believers about our struggles and addictions as we are told in James 5:16 which says “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” We believe that the increase in addiction within the church is a direct result in the decrease of honesty within the church. Our mission is to remind the church of the healing power of honesty and inspire it to return to a place of authenticity.
We Believe in Healing
Christian Alcoholic was born from an accident that nearly ended the life of it’s creator Aaron Nowell. On May 25th, 2015 at around 2am Aaron crashed into a light pole while driving home drunk which caused his fiancee Brianna to call of their upcoming wedding which was to take place in October of the same year. Over the summer Aaron started attending Alcoholic Anonymous meetings as he felt no one in the church was equipped to help with with his alcohol issues. During his four month stint in AA Aaron discovered the true healing power of honesty a healing power that has become dormant within the church. So instead of getting married in October Aaron started a blog which he called, “Christian Alcoholic.” Which started as a blog with the help of his now wife Brianna and three of their friends has quickly become a ministry of healing.
