Anonymous asked: Do you think is marijuana evil? Is there anything in the bible that mentions it in any way?
The bible doesn’t really mention the word “marijuana”, but there is some context in the bible that leads us to believe why marijuana isn’t good for christians to use.
First of all Marijuana is a hallucinogen and an addictive. The bible clearly teaches us that God wants nothing to be in control except Him alone. Marijuana messes with your conscience and doesn’t allow let you think for yourself. God wants our minds to be sober.
“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” - 1 Peter 5:8
When you have no control over your own actions, or the words you say, or your mind. That’s a big chance for the enemy to mess with you.
Also, marijuana does nothing good for you, there’s a lot of health risks involved. Marijuana effects your lungs, your heart, your brain, it impairs the immune system from fighting disease, it could also be fatal etc.
God wants us to take care of our bodies, smoking marijuana or anything like it is in no way taking care of our bodies.
“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” - 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
“What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.” - Isaiah 5:20
God bless yah!
