For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate.

Romans 7:15

What does the Bible say about temptation and addiction....

For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing.

Romans 7:18-19

Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.

1 Corinthians 6:18

The idols speak deceit, diviners see visions that lie; they tell dreams that are false, they give comfort in vain.

Zechariah 10:2

Clay man in chains

Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death. 

James 1:13-15

Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So, if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

John 8:34-36

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life....God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

John 3:16; Romans 5:8

God is gentle and compassionate. God knows your situation and will be compassionate to you if you reach out to Him. God sent His Son Jesus to be crucified, as the ultimate sign of His love for you.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God..... As it is written: "None is righteous, no, not one."

Romans 3:23; 3:10

We are all broken. The Bible calls your brokenness sin. Sin is your state of being separated from God and results in all kinds of evil actions. It also causes you to be unnecessarily anxious, and so selfish that others are hurt by your anxiety.

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord..... But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God..... For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.

Romans 6:23; John 1:12; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

God can make you right. Salvation is a free gift, obtained only through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. No matter how hard you try, your life will never be good enough to earn eternal life. Neither will you ever be too bad to be able to believe in the Name of Jesus.
