Overcoming Addiction through Faith: The Story of Jerry McAuley Mission

He who plays with sin will soon find out that sin will not play with him. I realized this to my sorrow when the time came in my life when I loved whisky better than the dearest friend on earth.
In the early 1900s, the Jerry McAuley Mission was a place of refuge for chronic alcoholics and addicts. The mission's purpose was to provide a place for those who had spiritual experiences during incarceration to continue it outside of prison and not end up back at their old ways.
In this particular episode, Philip Ilott Roberts tells the story of a man who first came to Water Street, addicted to alcohol, and for a long time, was up and then down. However, through his faith in God, he was able to overcome his addiction and find redemption. This episode highlights how a person's determination and faith can lead to a life-changing transformation. Roberts' story is a testament to the power of faith in overcoming addiction.
The challenges that he faced in entering the ministry were tremendous, but with his friends' support and God's help, he was able to win out. Roberts' journey is an inspiring story that shows how faith can help us overcome even the toughest challenges in life. He created a reading room and social center to help others and spread the word of God. Listen to this episode on and be inspired by the story of one man's journey to redemption.
