What is Reformers Unanimous (RU)?

 

Simply put RU is a faith based addictions recovery program; but it is much, much more than that.  As a “faith based” program we do not put our faith in a poorly defined “Higher Power”.  At RU we find victory as we place our faith in the Highest Power, the Lord Jesus Christ.  We must first believe in Him (John 3:16) for the salvation of our souls. We then must make a second decision to keep on trusting Jesus as we grow in a dynamic love relationship with Him, the author and finisher of our faith! This second part is critical for any Christian to have lasting victory (1 John 5:4). RU is a powerful and proven discipleship program with a curriculum that has provided thousands of hungry souls with a guided tour through the Word of God that can provide victory over addictions, strongholds and besetting sins.

Who is RU for?

 

As an addictions program RU offers true healing and victory.  An addiction could be defined as a strong and harmful need to do something or to have something.  Looking at an addiction as a spiritual problem, we can expand that definition to any sinful behavior or thought pattern that is beyond our own power to control.  That being said, as children of God we all have our “short trees”.  We all have behaviors, attitudes, and thoughts that do not glorify Jesus Christ, and that seem to have power over us. He can give us victory.  RU is an excellent tool to find that victory through Christ. If you or someone you know is struggling with an addiction, it is time to take action. Addiction crosses all societal boundaries, affects both genders, every ethnic group, and people in every tax bracket. Addiction is not about how much a person uses, but what their addiction is doing to their health, emotions, relationships and finances. So whether a person uses daily or once a week is irrelevant. It is commonly believed that an addict has to “hit bottom” before help can be offered and accepted. “Bottom” is where and when you decide to start a new life. Change can begin now. The RU Recovery Program offers hope, resources, support, and encouragement to help the addict, as well as their family and friends.

 

As a discipleship program, RU will benefit anyone and everyone.  Many may think that such a program would not be useful to them because they have no gross sin in their lives; no substance abuse, no immorality, etc.  They may even be active in the church and pursuing a daily walk with the Lord.  The truth is, however, that attending the RU program would be a huge spiritual boost and a blessing to anyone willing to sacrifice the time and effort.  It also offers a potential area of future ministry.
