Addictions are masters which enslave you and there are many masters: Cigarette smoking, food, drink, TV, movies, music, entertainment, drugs, pornography, lust, being angry, unforgiveness, shopping, earning money, spending money, cleaning house, maintaining your property, foul language, honoring yourself, looking down on others, and on and on and on. The Bible teaches we must have only One Master in order to receive what God has for us, the Lord Jesus Christ. But how can we serve the One true master when we aren't free from all the others? We can't! That's why we must be set free!
