Most Adults Feel Accepted by God, But Lack a Biblical Worldview

George Barna, whose acclaimed book Think Like Jesus described the core elements of a biblical worldview in laymen’s terms, noted that the religious books of greatest influence in the past several years have not addressed people’s fundamental theological views. “Most of the bestsellers have focused on meaning, purpose, security and the end times,” the researcher pointed out. “While there have been theological views expressed in those books, very few popular books have helped people to think clearly and comprehensively about their core theology. Consequently, most born again Christians hold a confusing and inherently contradictory set of religious beliefs that go unchecked by the leaders and teachers of their faith community.”

Evidence of hope...Revolution Ministries

The Idea of Revolution
To show all people the unconditional love and grace of Jesus without any reservations because of their lifestyle or religious background, past or future. This love has no agenda behind it (I Cor. 13:5). This grace sets no timeline on personal change or standards for spiritual growth (Romans 4:4-5). The idea is to be a part of people�s lives because we truly care for them rather than to fulfill a religious duty; to walk with them through all their struggles as a part of their life, not as a religious outsider.

Letter: Questions???

Dear CforC,

I am a 100% believer in the savior of my soul by the blood that Jesus shed for us as the ultimate sacrifice, and through Him we can have eternal life. I have never doubted this for one second. Being of a Non-Denominational background, I find myself questioning this idea that smoking pot can be justified. I smoke pot myself, and find an organization like yours very intriguing. The major issue I have is how your organization justifies cannabis usage by the verses that state in short we should utilize all the green things of the earth that bear fruit. How does this not apply to such things as the ever so troublesome Opium Poppy, which as we all know also has beneficial uses? We all know heroin is a terrible drug, like a death wish on those who tinker with its devilish grasp. I have met people with similar beliefs as your own, that say heroin and cocaine are simple perversions by the devil. Seems like the grasping of a hypothetical loophole seeing as how the bible is left to much interpretation. I question my own integrity every time I smoke. I question my devotion to Him. The thing is, I smoke and I read. I enlighten myself to many things and His word is on my mind at all times, with much time credited to His Word. I understand my beliefs more and more everyday, and I owe it to a simple weed. Not a person in this world could take credit for it. I agreed to my Christianity as a kid, just typical of the faith a child has. As an adult my faith obviously has more variables. Such as, prove it, show me, I can t believe my eyes, let me see that again, I m going to have to look this up, and so on. So, I need some concrete evidence. I need more scriptural references. Show me, prove it, I ll believe it when I see it&&teach; me, that s all I m asking. I can accept this idea, I can teach this idea, I can believe this idea, enlighten me! As I sit in my bedroom with several friends and talk about my savior Jesus, and what I believe, and how they can have this very same thing, I can t justify our reason for sitting there smoking pot while doing so.

Love in Christ,



Dear Joshua-

Thank you for taking the time to write and my apologies for the tardy response. I hope the words I send you here bring enough instruction that you should have peace, regardless of what you decide.

When I first started this quest, my efforts were not to justify pot smoking, but to justify my own position of supporting the criminalizaton of cannabis use. After much time in study and prayer, and receiving many confirmations from wide and varied sources, I finally accepted that I could not justify my position according to God's word and changed my mind. The act of using cannabis should not be a criminal offense and our support, be it out of ignorance, as mine was, or how weak the passivity of our support may be, can not be justified and we are accountable for the tragic results of our misguided, though sincere efforts to do what we think is right.

In reference to your own consumption, first you must be fully convinced in your own mind that what you are doing is right or wrong. To be double minded is a sin itself. I also encourage you to examine the fruits of all your efforts. That which bears good fruit, that is in align with God's will, pursue with all that you have. That which bears no fruit or bears bad fruit, I say to reject from your life and bring your thoughts and actions in line with God's word and God's will.

Again, thank you for your time and sincere questions. Be encouraged that those that hunger for righteousness will be fed.

love and peace,
