I am an Ordained Minister that believes every word of the Bible. Colossians 2:8 “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”
Now concerning the issue of Medical Marijuana. In Genesis 1:11&12, especially 1:31, Everything He made was very good, so what right does man have to call his creation,, very bad. No right whatsoever.
Well doesn’t the Bible say, Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.—-YES, ONLY IF IT COINSIDES with God’s word and His will.
Consider Mariam and the midwives, they put Moses in the basket, the Governing authority was Pharoah, but they did against, and the Bible says that God bless them, not God’s will to murder. Or how about Daniel, he didn’t bow down, and governing authority wanted him to. Apostle Paul was a Jew, he was told by the Jewish counsel not to Preach in Jesus name, yet he did–God’s word over rides man’s word.
Now I am a user of Medical Marijuana, I have a State I.D. #, and local dispensary..I have 12 medical issues, that have developed in the last few years, and God’s creation helps me with the pain. Making it illegal is against my 1st admendment rights. No jurisdiction over religion, yet they have..Do you agree?
No, i dont agree the Government actually advocates for families to be religious , just to respect the diversity of religions and beliefs.
Aside from an antiquated reason making pot illegal , they have come to their sinces and allowed pots use in medicene.
It was used in the Bible and its no less a medication than others that are derived from plants.
Wishing you well.
No, I don’t agree and I don’t agree with the legalization of marijuana.
No, I don’t agree, particularly with your attempt to connect your medical use of marijuana to some imagined “First Amendment rights.” Unless you are practicing a religion which uses it ceremonially–not medically–that claim doesn’t make sense.
I do, however, concur that the laws prohibiting marijuana use are foolish and damaging, and they ought to be changed. And I’m especially concerned about medical needs–as well as the potential economic benefits from the free market.
I just think citing the First Amendment in this connection is neither useful nor effective.
” Everything He made was very good” Try chowing down some oleander leaves.
I don’t share your beliefs. Human beings write books. Human beings have egos. The ego makes a human being put his/her want first or of most importance. I believe there is a spirit, energy or something. But these books be it the Qu’ran, Bible, Torah are written by man and therefore full of BS. There is no hell other than living in fear rather than open hearted love.
I don’t think the United States government cares one way or another. They are too busy making a mess of the country to care what we believe as long as they believe they cannot be fired or will be re-elected.
Just because you’re a minister doesn’t mean we want to hear a sermon. Complete separation of (any) church and state sounds like a win win for all of us.

– Sorry about the head injury. All of genesis was plagiarized from the Sumerian tablets and most of the rest was made up.
Satan’s control over man’s governments will be replaced by Jehovah’s heavenly Kingdom rule-Matt 4:8,9;Matt 6:9,10. Christendom’s members are part of Babylon the Great the world empire of false religion and JEHOVAH will have the world’s govts turn on them during the great tribulation-Rev 17:15-17;Rev 18;Matt 24:15. At Armageddon Jesus and the 144000 will Destroy Christendom’s members with the rest of Satan’s wicked world shortly-Rev 18;Matt 25:46. No one will suffer in Jehovah’s new world on a paradise earth-Rev 21:1,3-5; Psalms 37:11,29; Isaiah 33:24
I happen to agree with you that pot should be legalized, but I also support the separation of church and state.
