Re: "It is all good," March 8, 2016. How is it that Stan White missed
the part I was not against the use of marijuana for medical uses, while
under the control of the government?

Stan, like so many other dope heads, wants pot to be legalized for
recreational use just like alcohol.

Consider the epidemic we now face as a society due to the licensed use
of alcohol. We have out-of-control alcoholism in adults and teenagers,
motor vehicle deaths due to drunk drivers, the breakup of marriages
and families, all because of the abuse of alcohol.

So now Stan and others like him want to add another killer vice to
society's ills?

It is so absurd for people like Stan that the only time they pick up
the Bible is to support their beloved vices! You know Jesus drank
wine! So drunkenness must be OK then?

Stan says prohibition of the use of recreational pot use is the
devil's law.

I want to remind Stan, what the devil really said to Adam and Eve in
the garden - "=C2=85And he [The Devil] said unto the woman, Yea, hath God

said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" (Gen. 3:1).

You see, the devil was against any kind of prohibition

The biblical account clearly states God, for his own good reasons,
prohibited Adam and Eve from eating only from one of the trees of the
garden - from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Satan came
into the garden disguised as a snake with only one purpose in mind: to
deceive Adam and Eve that they might sin and bring ruin upon
themselves and all mankind.

So God's prohibition for our first parents was something good, but
Satan - the devil, and all the dope heads of the world want only
selfgratification, self-will and lawlessness in order to do harm to
themselves and to all others with whom they might come into contact.

Can you imagine a dope head, high on pot, driving on the other side of
the road? You would be the devil's next victim.

The Lord Jesus Christ says this of the devil: "The thief (Devil)
cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come
that they might have life, and that they might have it more
abundantly" (John10:10).

Pot is the gateway drug. Pot will kill and destroy your mind, soul,
and body. Pot abuse comes to steal your life, not give life.

Pot, like alcohol, is the devil's friend!
