How come the Christians can smoke Marijuana in California?
I have actually meet some Christians who smoke Marijuana
before going to church. They have a Doctors note. They
believe it is ok.

Californicate, what a place.

Genesis 1:29.
Then God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you."
And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.

Do we eat every plant that has seeds? No. The bible verse is intended to convey the meaning that the plants of the earth are here to serve man's purpose. Food means more than something you eat, and if you have ever read the bible, you know it is filled with metaphors.

You are right for sure, but i don't think this bible verse can be interpreted that it recommends getting high or drunk nor that it condemns it

i think we must ask why do people want to get high? What purpose does it have? What are the consequences to the individual person? Does it help us grow our relationship with God?

I can not imagine a drunk or high Jesus lol

I think god wants us to use discretion in the things we do. Too much of anything is bad for you, no matter what it is. If you use things for the right reason, then I don't see the problem. If the bible wanted to make it clear that we shouldn't smoke marijuana or do other things Christians commonly perceive as bad, it would have stated so. That is my opinion anyway.

That's a good one. Goes along with what I said in my last post above, that you should use discretion and do things for the right reasons. If you can be clear minded and self controlled in the things you do, then it seems according the bible you are in the clear.

you need biblical verses to know alcohol is bad? just look what it does to the body.

anything that distorts our minds interferes with the fabric & harmony of GOD's tapestry. We are but a tapestry, each of us a single strand in his creation.

I know alcohol is bad, that's why I don't drink it. I was hoping for a bible verse to support your statement.

Luckily marijuana doesn't distort my mind, but I know people it affects negatively. That is why I said everything above regarding discretion.

Look, the Bible does not promote marijuana use in any way!

You damned stoners will stop at nothing to promote you self-destructive lifestyle.

Here's a fact, Jack, marijuana is not a "naturally-growing" plant on Earth. Hemp, however, is.

To grow marijuana, you have to cultivate hemp by killing off the males and allow the female plant to mature into marijuana.

Show us the bible verse that proves what you say. Also, marijuana will still cultivate flowers (the part you smoke) if there are males around. That's why it grows in the wild. You should read up and educate yourself before you make statements.

All this coming from the guy who puts guns before god in his username. That should be the first indication of your character.

Fact: Marijuana grows naturally in the wild, marijuana creates the smoked substance naturally in the wild. Do you think humans just genetically engineered this plant oh.. 5 thousand years ago when it was first starting to be smoked?
