The guy needs to get saved. What's the point of tearing him down because of a failure like that? The guy needs the Gospel -- he doesn't need people ripping him for giving in to temptation to alleviate chronic pain.
Amen. I can attest to that. I've known some real good folks that got hooked on those pills. It's such a hard drug to quit. Oh and like you said, he does need to be saved, but I imagine with his audience that he's gotten the gospel at least more than once. Praying for him would be good.

Peace and Love,
