Is Marijuana Ever Okay for Christians?



Use of marijuana hasn’t traditionally been a “gray area” for Christians. The drug was illegal, so it was off-limits to those who are …

  1. I fully understand we should acknowledge smoking habits as sinful, and opening the mind to intoxicant makes the Evil temptation greater but I also think with reverent discipline it can actually draw you closer to God, taking just a pinch hit one day a week before Church and enjoying the rest of the day outside can be a very spiritually meditative medicine.

  2. I speak on a subject when I am educated about it, especially if I am try to speak to an audience, what you are saying in this video is very uneducated at the least.

  3. I'd have to say in a nutshell. Do not smoke it, it's unnecessary but when you do, let it not harm you and put on the armor of Christ.

    No being can trump Christ, no principality or power can overtake Christ, no single thing in this plane of existence can overpower the light. The darkness CANNOT make the light go away. Does this mean that you should go ahead and go against your conscience so that His grace may be abound? God forbid! But in case that you are using it, not promoting it here to be very clear, make sure you surround yourself with Scripture and seek guidance of the Holy Spirit. Not even poison can harm you when you have faith but does that mean you can go and drink poison? No! Do not try to tempt God, by no means.

    And to get to my testimony, when I smoked before I turned to Christ, the experience was always different. It almost felt like it was to fulfill the lusts of my flesh and to do it for the high itself, basically immorality.
    But in the period after I turned to Him, I found myself using it once in a while still but the experience was different, I've experienced certain heretical spirits trying to take that chance to convince me of certain abominable ideas, spirits both as in people and actual non-tangible spirits. But here is where God bestowed me with grace as well. An epistemological tool to discern. Look whether your thoughts conflict/contradict the Word, if it does contradict then you need to cast it out and disown it in the name of Christ Jesus. Those heretical ideas are not you, it is trying to get to you. Disown it, spend your time listening to songs of Psalms, read Scripture, have Jesus on your mind at all times no matter where you are or what you are doing. He will protect you in the short term and the longterm, be at ease because a pesky little demon stands NO chance against God! Explicitly ask the Son, the Holy Spirit and/or the Father for guidance and He shall give you signs. Romans 14 talks about diet but it also gives us a clear understanding of how to approach anything of faith.

    22 Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves. 23 But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin.

    We need to understand that the last part is a universal rule. For whatever is not from faith, is sin. If it does not sit right with you and goes against your conscience, listen to your conscience… Do NOT touch marijuana, do NOT touch anything that makes you or a brother stumble. If you know it will make you nauseous, uncontrolled, unsound of mind, out of line with God,… Do not touch it. At all. For God is Grace and He guides you.

  4. I've watched weed heal, ive watched weed enrich the lives of the growers and users on a multitude of levels and to the earth. The comparison to alcohol and weed is quite frankly daft. People have canniboid receptors in the brain, alcohol is poisoning of the body. Cbd is huge and has no ''hi'' associated with it. To totally neglect the plant and all its properties is an insult to its creation and existence. To influence others into taking something or not taking something is un justifiable. It should be a personal choice that should not be judged. . Surely you can abuse and escape in religion. food. nature. art. entertainment. work. There is a middle path to everything, people should practice balance. Smoking weed doesnt make a person bad or dirty. It's a beautiful plant that stops cancer and seizures, helps with pain, anxiety, and EVERYTHING involved with aging. You can even use it to have fun and lighten the mood. You say weed doesnt bring people together, /watch?v=TFzy1l_WoAs <– thats a rabbi, a priest, and an atheist having fun together. Ive made so many friends because of weed. It has enriched my life totally. Youre an educated man, just because you dont like it doesnt mean it's bad. It's a popular stereotype your pushing and it's wrong. Youre on the wrong side of history, weed is a miracle from god.

  5. Some people can't handle it.
    People who drink and get real crazy has a problem. Mabey they need to quit drinking so much and hit a little pot. (😎).
    Make them relaxed and from acting stupider. 😎
    If

  6. People use alcohol to disconnect and unhinge from reality as well I am a Christian and I am a believer but I also see a lot of christians who drink because The Bible says it's OK and drink a lot. So I am in the cannabis industry and I have been for 10 years before I came to Christ and I've seen the medical benefits of cannabis so I am very conflicted on the issue because I have a alcohol problem and drink a lot.. a lot of bad things happen in my life because of alcohol never because I was smoking weed jail suicide attempts everything… crashing cars disrespecting my family. everything came from me drinking.. At celebrations. and at the end of it was all bad nothing ever happened for me smoking weed.. I feel closer to God when I smoke weed and I don't use it to disconnect I smoke with people

  7. That’s the affect it had on him. No one is running from anything haha. It helps you communicate. Alcohol is for “fun” there’s no good use for it in the long run. But weed is a different story. It helps so many people.

  8. No way it's not ok. If your trying to justify it , it's because you know it's wrong. And your desire is taking control. Desire is selfish and selfish is the opposite of love. No way jose

  9. Genesis 1:29-30

    King James Version

    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.

    I personally think smoking anything is a sin because it defiles your temple but eating edibles in my opinion so far (it might change if God leads me to change) cannabis is not a sin as long as you eat it.

  10. I need prayers to quit please. I have nerve damage throughout my whole body and it helps. Also a huge help with menopause!! God please forgive and help me. Amen 🙏

  11. God created every herb to be used by man, it's stated that one shouldn't be involved with drunkenness, i.e. not being so intoxicated you won't remember. There's also a line that you are able to use, but not be mastered by it

  12. You are sooo lost! You have no idea what you are talking about! God made cannabis as a natural medicine. I think pills are a bigger issue. They are man made for profit.
