Is dependency ever a good thing?
Is dependency ever a good thing? Most would agree that dependency on drugs can certainly be an extremely destructive and debilitating condition but what about other dependencies? Gambling dependencies has led even the well off to poverty and extreme squander. Being dependent on the approval of the world makes even the believer impotent to do real good and stand up for what is right.
We can go on and on about how many forms of dependency we admit are bad, but there is a form of dependency that is becoming more acceptable even in the Christian community that is quite troubling. That dependency is a dependency on the government.
