Forget Jesus...he cares not. All of the planets bounty is good for human consumption - in moderation and care for the planet.

Druggary is a sin...because it messes with the brain

The brain produces its own chemicals that give ecstasy ..keep messing with the chemicals and you become unbalanced and your brain will become dependent on the artificial drug and your own brain will cease producing its natural chemical and depression takes over..

Druggary isn't even a word.

Where in the Bible does it mention drugs? Exactly mention drugs...

Maybe you should discuss this with people you know in real life and who know you. Getting advice from total strangers who you know nothing about their history and current life is not advisable.

You could be unknowingly getting advice from a current drug addict or drug addict in reform. While their advice may be valid, perspective is important. You could be getting advice from one of our many POES or trolls we have and you would not know if they are being factious, mean-spirited or serious.

Knowing the history of person giving advice adds invaluable insight into said advice. Taking advice from total strangers who do not know you, may not care about your well being or they may be using you for their own cheap thrill, is ill advised.

Use your Bible and google and research this subject on your own or speak to a pastor you trust. If you are unable/unwilling to do this, ask a few Christian friends you have in real life that you trust to guide in this study. If you cannot do any of the above, go to a moderated Christian forum and ask for guidance in this study. Do not just accept advice from people you do not know, but ask for help in doing the study on your own.

Good luck and God Bless.

A moderated site often only gives one opinion, a consensus among those who all think/ believe the same way. when making a decision it is best to consider all sides to a debate then deciding for yourself which is right for you.

Give up the drugs and turn to Jesus and get saved. A Holy Spirit filled person doesn't need to get high or drunk to "unwind". Jesus can break the bondage of sin.

Drugs and alcohol will get you nowhere in life!

Yeah, I also feel they consider all sides, hence I recommend they do the study themselves and not just accept some strangers advice. I don' consider Topix to be any of the sides. IMO, Topix advice should not be used to make *any* moderate to serious decisions in ones life. There are too many unbalanced people on here to consider their advice worthwhile. Sadly, Topix seems to be attracting more and more unbalanced people regularly.

God bless you and yours.

Jesus kind of broke down the rules into two commandments;

“The first is this:
‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.'

The second is this:
‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
There is no other commandment greater than these.”

Now if smoking a little herb gives you trouble dealing with those two rules, then maybe you gotta check yourself.

If not?
Then be careful how marijuana really kills motivation.

DO SOMETHING!

Besides watching TV, eating Oreos and Kool-Aid......That is....LOL!

I know that the Catholic religion teaches all things in moderation. I also know that all early tribes relied on hallucinogenic drugs to get inspiration from GOD.

Like everything there is two sides.

Jesus 'healed using cannabis

Jesus w as almost certainly a cannabis user and an early proponent of the medicinal properties of the drug, according to a study of scriptural texts published this month. The study suggests that Jesus and his disciples used the drug to carry out miraculous healings.
The anointing oil used by Jesus and his disciples contained an ingredient called kaneh-bosem which has since been identified as cannabis extract, according to an article by Chris Bennett in the drugs magazine, High Times, entitled Was Jesus a Stoner? The incense used by Jesus in ceremonies also contained a cannabis extract, suggests Mr Bennett, who quotes scholars to back his claims.

Eating unhealthy is just as bad right?

Such as eating pork for example?

The Judaic and Xtian community has done an excellent job of covering-up their shamanistic-like origins.

And the modern American Proty Xtian community is woefully lacking in any knowledge of how much mysticism played a part of the development of much of the beliefs about miracles and spirit manifestations of the Religion.

In fact, its amazing how little Xtian-dom in America knows much about its past history re; mysticism and all that it involves, trances, hallucinations, visions under duress, etc, etc,...

Are you one of the anti-pork folks?

Pork is not any more unhealthy to eat than any other meat. Its all about how much, and the sources...

But MOST American xtians do not see their lousy dietary habits as important in their quest for salvation. Eating cr/p food in huge amounts is not seen as gluttony by not only American Xtians, but most of the American population...it is rather seen as a Right, to consume whatever, whenever, and in huge portions anything that can be shoved down the gullet.

Such behaviors that are basically impulse control are not viewed by the American Xtian community as important to their salvation. Self-control in this area of life has been erased from the play-book of how to live a spiritual and righteous life. With American Xtians that is...and since they make up the bulk of the population, so goes the Nation in this regards.

Which of course feeds into our Cultural beliefs, that we can and should consume everything we want with abandon...no matter the end costs to the Nations over all health and well-being. Look to our wanton oil-based product consumption and lack of motivation to seek alternatives to lower those costs and risks.

I was clearly speaking to someone that believes in the bible. The SAME bible that condemns eating swine but calls herb bearing plants good. Get it now?

With that said I agree with your view on the lack of self control of some people INCLUDING me and YOURSELF
