Re: DRUGS AND THE AFTERLIFE
very true to both, thanks, good perspectives.
 Quoting: Indi Intro


If you pay any attention, christian sin is ignoring the plight of others for your own benefit, so the element of constructive participation is integral to determine the value of any action. The things delegated as sin are those things that basically are a 'fkkk you' towards those that are functionally in need.
Not so other belief systems, where 'sins' are more legalistic and intended to preserve tribal imperitives, so, though sin is a word used in many settings, the actual implications are often quite different.

Re: DRUGS AND THE AFTERLIFE
Drugs and even moderate drug use are, in my interpretation of the bible (using Greek Latin Hebrew and Aramaic versions of this book), are not a 'sin'.

The same applies to alcohol. Jesus Himself would be a sinner, not only did He drink Wine, He also had the audacity to be a wine pusher, turning water into wine.

It is when drugs/alcohol become the be all, do all, only end to your life that you are in 'sin' territory.

However addictive behavior is not really a sin, it is a sickness, one brought on by social and familial issues stemming way back to when you were in the womb.

There is direct correlation between chemical and physical 'brain issues' and addictive personalities.

This means we are dealing with sick people. People who are suffering from a 'dis-ease' of the body and mind.

God and Christ appear to have this thing about treating the sick of mind and spirit and of body as kindly as possible, thus I fail to see where being a drug user (lightly or to the extreme) is in and of itself a 'sin'.

Drug production and sales (or alcohol production and sales) with the sole purpose of cashing in on the miseries of others (turning a profit off of illness) is most likely a sin.

You common drug 'pusher' the guy who hands out the dope for cash is only the end of the production line, and isn't the one to be blamed. S/he is often their own best customer, or have their own drug related problems to where they are selling to survive.

The real 'sinner' in these cases is much higher up, the main producer, the one who gets into the business to make a dollar or a million.

This is often large 'criminal' organizations, or national interests who are purposefully churning out drugs for the purpose of making money. THOSE are the sinners.
