Bible Teachings About the Cannabis Plant
There are people who believe that marijuana can be used and others who believed that it’s not good for us and this discussion has been on for quite some time. There are those people who give their arguments basing their answers on scriptural grounds, medical, political or even scientific grounds.
Below are the some of the things to know about the bible and marijuana. You find that the bible supports the use of herbs and some seeds indicating that all are Gods creating. Bible mention some herbs that were used to heal and this give an indication that cannabis might be one of the mentioned herbs.
The indication that Gods created all plants and herbs doesn’t solve the problem they are all can be used, it is essential to be able to distinguish which are safe to use and which are not. They argue that one can be able to take small quantities of marijuana without being intoxicated just as when one may have a small quantity of alcohol without the need to become drunk. The fact is that for you to realize the benefits of marijuana you require few puffs for one to be intoxicated, this indicates that someone who is taking it for recreational purposes may require more puffs otherwise it would have any benefit in his or her body.
The aspect of the marijuana interfering with the memory is one way of interfering with the initial intent of God in the function of the brain. Most of the users of marijuana are not able to have the alertness meaning that even the level of performance might go down.
The decision of taking marijuana one need to reason if the action will glorify God. The use of marijuana is a personal decision that one has to make depending on the ultimate relationship one has with God.
Anything that undermines the mind as a Christian one needs to avoid it.|The bibles say that in the book of 1st Corinthians 6:13 that human body is meant for God in that they are designed to bring glory to God.| The scripture highlights that human body is meant to be an instrument of honor hence anything that may weaken or diminish the body capacity should be avoided.| Marijuana is known to have a great impact on the body which lowers both physical and mental capacities of the body.| One cannot be able to serve God when his or her state of the mind is not well, Christians should strive to have a clear state of mind, speak clearly and be in a position to remember well.| The affection to God grows where a Christian can be able to relate who God is, remember who he is, speak to him and serve him diligently with the right mind.|
As the witness of Christ, Christians needs to exempt themselves from what the world is doing and especially in the use of marijuana. One cannot be a Gods witness when his or her state of mind doesn’t have reasoning power. Anything is not born of the spirit to a Christian that is a sin, the fact that marijuana has a great influence in the body should be avoided.
