From The Language of the Heart (Bill W's Grapevine Writings):
(This book is a collection of articles that Bill Wilson published in The Grapevine, AA's international journal).
Page 278, (An excerpt from a letter to Dr. Carl Jung). Clear once more of alcohol, I found myself terribly depressed. This seemed to be caused by my inability to gain the slightest faith. Edwin T. again visited me and repeated the simple Oxford Group's formulas. Soon after he left me I became even more depressed. In utter despair I cried out, "If there be a God, will he show himself." There immediately came to me an illumination of enormous impact and dimension, something which I have since tried to describe in the book Alcoholics Anonymous and also in AA Comes of Age, basic texts which I am sending to you.
Obviously, whatever entity Bill Wilson believes illuminated him during this experience was in no way God because only through Jesus Christ does anyone have access to the Father. Yet another complete contradiction to the teachings of scripture.
From The Long Haul (Chicago, IL, Chicago area Alcoholics Anonymous):
Pg. 6, Some religious organizations label the alcoholic a sinner and attempt to solve his drinking problem by saving his soul, but with little success.
Based on the scriptures, the alcoholic is indeed a sinner and the wages of sin is death. But through the grace of the free gift of God we can have eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Once again, the demonically inspired writings of AA strive to place themselves above the one true God and His Holy Word!
Galatians 5:19-21, Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Romans 6:23, For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
