In Alcoholics Anonymous Comes Of Age, Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill Wilson writes, “That we have chosen this symbol is perhaps no mere accident. The priests and seers of antiquity regarded the circle enclosing the triangle as a means of warding off spirits of evil, and AA’s circle of Recovery, Unity, and Service has certainly meant all that to us and much more.” (Alcoholics Anonymous Comes Of Age, pg.139, Bold mine)
The pagan symbol, for years closely identified with AA, speaks volumes. If only some pro-AA authors could be more upfront about the AA co-founders themselves.
Erroneously portrayed as a Christian, Bill Wilson was used to bring 12 Step spirituality into the culture and into the very Body of Christ. With this syncretism, “recovery” has often been understood as “sanctification.”
But there is nothing sanctified about the 12 Steps. Given to Bill Wilson by a familiar spirit (http://mywordlikefire.com/2008/09/24/seances-spirits-and-12-steps/), the 12 Steps have been a major factor in the dilution of Christianity. Nor was Wilson alone in his rebellion against Jesus Christ. Dr. Bob Smith, the other Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder, was not a Christian either. (HERE)
What does all this mean? It means we are in trouble. Deep trouble.
Now you, son of man, listen to what I am speaking to you; do not be rebellious like that rebellious house. Open your mouth and eat what I am giving you. ” … “So I opened my mouth and He fed me this scroll. He said to me, ‘Son of man, feed your stomach and fill your body with this scroll I am giving you.’ Then I ate it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth.” (Ezekiel 2: 8, 3: 1-3)
