The following is an email dialogue between myself and someone else, who advocates smoking weed as cool, natural, and from God, that is all to worthy of sharing:
So you think that Rihanna shouldn't have to look over her shoulder when she is on vacation gettin' high?! WOW. This isn't about looking over your shoulder it's about being Godly and living that way because it's truly who you are. She is being who she is. Yes. But, you are lying to yourself, or extremely deceived, if you think GOD wants us smoking marijuana or altering our minds in any way. Jesus drank wine, as did everyone else in that day, with a meal, not to the point of drunkennes
- Go to Revelation
s 21:8"But the cowardly, unbelievin g, [fn] abominable , murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers (pharmacia ), idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."
- The word 'Pharmacia and Sorcery" are the same word in the original Greek biblical manuscript
s. These are the first words which are the root of what we now call our modern day PHARMACY where we get drug prescripti ons. The word Sorcery was originally the word to describe 'someone who mixed or took drugs/poti ons...witc hcraft.' Your typical, and uneducated and uniformed statement about marijuana being from the ground and grown by God is an untrue line of reasoning. ...a common trick of the enemy/SATA N. There are plenty plants grown from the ground that man knows he should not eat...like poisonous mushrooms!!!! Why don't you advocate eating those? BECAUSE WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO KILL OURSELVES NOR ARE WE TO ALTER OUR MINDS AWAY FROM CHRIST WHICH ALLOWS THE ENEMY TO ENTER IN AND SET UP SHOP IN YOUR LIFE. Seriously? Do you understand what that means? I do!!! You need to look at what fruit you want to produce in your life because success and happiness will ALWAYS elude you if the enemy has the RIGHT to do what he wants to you, your loved ones, and your interests. A RIGHT you provide when you go against the Word Of God whether you even know you are going against His words and warnings or not. God didn't give us the BIBLE as a nice book of poetry, or a book of suggested readings, or a way to crunch our buzz and make us not have any fun. It's a friggin play book for this life in this world because He knows the end at the beginning and because He wants US to live happier and more freely protected from the enemy's attacks and tricks against our lives and our families and our businesses. God doesn't NEED you to BELIEVE. He WANTS, DESIRES, with all His love for you to BELIEVE.... for YOU!!! Not for HIM!
- Read Galatians 5:20-21 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contention
s, jealousies , outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissension s, heresies, envy, murders, [fn] drunkennes s, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand , just as I also told [you] in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
- WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD!
- Read Ephesians 6:10-18...
our fight is not against each other but against spiritual forces of deception that will destroy the ignorant. Our armor is the WORD of GOD.
- You need to read it and KNOW it before you speak for God telling others what He's cool with. You bring sure judgement on yourself for such a thing. And, I speak as someone who KNOWS that she KNOWS BETTER about the WORD OF GOD! Nobody is perfect...
thank God for Jesus. But, we do have a responsibi lity after we are saved to not continue on in sin...and certainly not to open our mouths to others advocating it when one is soooo off point, and incorrect, which I am sorry my brother but you are. Yes, we all have fallen. I thought it was cool to smoke pot back in the day...way before I REALLY understood the game of spiritual warfare in this world. But, as a woman of color who is not as famous as Ree...but acquainted intimately with 'celebrity ' let me tell you I try never to hold the truth in unrighteou sness. A wise man just repents faster.
- So, I am NOT religious. Jesus came to do away with the empty religiosit
y of the day. I am a sinner, saved by the grace and BLOOD of Jesus Christ the Son of God. And, I am extremely well versed and studied in the WORD OF GOD. So please do not make ignorant statements like yours above saying God wants me to smoke cuz it's natural and doesn't mind me drinking wine. I do, on occasion, drink wine. I don't drink to the point of being DRUNK because we are not supposed to. Did you ever SEE or ever HEAR about Jesus and the Apostles being drunk? C'mon. And, He DOES NOT want us doing drugs, which includes smoking weed, my friend. Educate yourself. Free your mind with the truth...an d the rest will follow!
- Here's a good rule of thumb...if it doesn't look, or sound, like Jesus and the Apostles it probably isn't right. That should convict ALOT of Christians and Sinners alike.
