01/10/2004: "Words to live by"

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing
debt to love one another, for he who loves his
fellowman has fulfilled the law
. The commandments,
'Do not commit adultery,' 'Do not murder,' 'Do not steal,'
'Do not covet,' and whatever other commandment
there may be, are summed up in this one rule: 'Love your
neighbor as yourself.' Love does no harm to its neighbor.
herefore love is the fulfillment of the law

(Romans 13:8-10 NIV)

"Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for God?s glory.? 1 Corinthians 10:31 (HCSB) Can you honestly say that smoking weed is for God's Glory? How? Smoking weed is a desire of the flesh. Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. Luke 9:23 Denying yourself here means not feeding the desires of your body, but the opposite. Denying the desires of the body to follow Christ. The fact that you support the use of marijuana in itself fullfills prophecy: But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God-- having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.

1 Timothy 4

1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.

7 But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.


Genesis 1

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.


Is directly inhaling smoke from any burning thing harmful? Yes, to varying degrees.

Is the use of the "green herbs bearing seed" that God gave you "for meat" sinful? What about the medical, industrial and nutritional purposes of the entire plant?

All the government and chemical/medical/lumber industry propaganda to the contrary is a bunch of "profane and old wives' fables" based on racism and greed. This is readily obvious to any serious study of the 20th Century prohibition movement.

Cannabis is God's gift to us, and I have a natural law right to it. Furthermore, I can see no Constitutional basis for Federal prohibition. Therefore, I believe legislating the eradication of God's natural gifts is tyrannical, unjust, prideful and immoral. The proof of this is the violent drug trade and the illegal "black-ops" funding schemes that are enabled by this inequitable criminalization of God's Creation.

What I've said above in no way condones or advocates abuse anymore than Jesus turning water into wine for a wedding party did so.
