What the twelve step
program boils down to is belief in God,
confession of sins, repentance, and asking God
to make amends to your victims as well as to make
you whole again. Now, where have you heard this before? But no, DistressedVets is most certainly not an “accept Jesus as your personal savior” program of Born Again Christianity. Most twelve-step programs accept all religions as pathways to reform. Not so here. Here, we endorse freedom of religion, we value religious tolerance, and we promote a universal ethic (i.e., a “treat others as you wish to be treated yourself,” Golden Rule approach to life). At the same time, we recognize that reform and redemption are very different things. People can reform, but not be redeemed. God’s forgiveness is reserved for those who follow His religion of truth. There is one path, and only one path that will lead to forgiveness. As there is only one Creator, there is only one religion that is most pleasing to Him. All other religions are, to one degree or another, corrupt. Now, if you think Judaism or Christianity is the religion of truth, this is where I would ask you to renew your vow to open your heart and mind to new ideas.
