Media @ New Hope CalgaryIn this message Amy Winehouse is in the docket. What’s with this gifted musician’s life? What is it about her search for freedom that rings so true... and that seems so self-destructively wrong? And what is God saying through all of this?

“They’re tryin to make me go to rehab, I said no, no, no
Yes I been black, but when I come back, You won’t know, know, know.”
Amy Winehouse, from her hit song Rehab

“The weight of this sad time we must obey
Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say.”
Edgar, in Shakespeare’s King Lear, 5.3.324-325

“What drives addition is longing—a longing not just of brain, belly or loins, but finally of the heart.”
William Lenters, The freedom we Crave

“The addict must make his way in a culture that presumes everybody’s fundamental right to gratify at least five of his senses and that discourages self denial as foolish or even impious.
For the self is a sacred object.”
Dr. C. Plantinga, Not the Way it’s supposed to be

“We all have a habit where sin is concerned’
Dr. C. Plantinga, Not the Way it’s supposed to be

“So, since we're out from under the old tyranny, does that mean we can live any old way we want? Since we're free in the freedom of God, can we do anything that comes to mind? Hardly. You know well enough from your own experience that there are some acts of so-called freedom that destroy freedom.”
The Apostle Paul in Romans 6:15-16, MSG

“Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you…”
The Apostle Paul in Galatians 5:1

Love is a fate resigned...And laughed at by the gods
Amy in “Love is a Losing Game”
