I know your points. But to answer your question I simply will quote my previous posting

Quote: "There is obviously a great divide between those who smoke and those who don't, regardless of whether they are Christian or not."

And, what do you think about that? Is that a thing to strengthen and what use would it have, especially within the context of the last part of your sentence?

Hmm...well here it goes again...

mDread...I feel that you are phrasing yourself correctly.

As for ms. Eden...

Mdread and I, along with others are always glad to discuss this on other forums, however, our brother Tansoback, this forums proprietor, wishes for our oppinions on the matter to be left at the Dubroom...I respect Tansoback enough to discontinue my side of this debate until someone happens to carry this over to the forum at http://www.dubroom.org/ Mdread feels the same way, but you decided to call him touchy and compare his situation to some previous discussion having nothing to do with this subject...Sister, I have nothing against you or any of the other bretheren here at lion of zion...but I wish my friend and brother Messian Dread's words would quit gettin twisted around and thrown in his face...

Coolpoete...In my personal experiences, people who do not smoke generally get along with me (for the most part)...Blaminack and I have shared many blessed reasonings right here on this board. InI wish that it could be the same for everyone...

by the way, didn't I meet you on POD?

I'm not certain whether Tansoback would or would rather not have this discussion and if I would participate in it, but for me it doesn't feel right to use this forum as a platform for my ideas concerning herb. I was not asked to refrain from it but it is because I read what the general opinnion is and especially the opinnion of the founder and therefore I will refrain from talking about this subject in the context of sharing my opinnions.

I do however want to stress the fact that the things that bind are more important than the things that seperate, especially in this present time.

And sometimes it happens that people use the anti-herb feelings of some Christians to drive schism with other Christians who have a different opinnion.

This is the context in which I participate in this reasoning. I feel that it is wrong to try to unite people against herb, for a reason other then to praise Jah in Truth.

What is the reason to make people stop smoking herb if they do not see Jah and do not have Him in their hearts? And why should there be put effort in this?

The discussion on herb itself is for me a long passed station in my life. I have my opinnion and I do not think it is so important. I do however realize that it is quite important for some people, for a lot of Christians too, also people who come on this forum.

And I wonder why. Or perhaps I don't. But I do know that there are other things to focus on, when the time draws nearer and nearer, the walls of babylon are falling and soon come the whole system will fall. They will try for seven years and after that the KING OF KINGS will COME to MASH DOWN BABYLON.

Ok, I think I am understanding of where this topic went (perhaps before I even began posting on this site) and the general consensus. My opinions are just that, an opinion. I feel as if its difficult to "ban a subject" from the board because there are new people joining all the time with desires to discuss things, and I just really wanted to put my 2 cents in on the subject. I regard the consumation of herb spiritually and mentally unhealthy, as I've stated before. Many here will not agree and that's fine. BUT, If we bring a topic to discussion I think it's good to state why we think this way, and I have done this in my previous posts. That's pretty much it. I don't judge people or condemn people for their habits because Jesus loves us all. I do understand where you are coming from Mdread and agree with you. I just admonish everyone to continue to seek God in Spirit and In truth and he will continue to be there for you as he has proven in my life.

RasTalawa, were you referring to me when you mentioned POD? I don't know what you are refferring to.

Dear Brother,

I'm a Rasta from Cuba. I don't wanna argue with you, but I think that you have to keep on studying the Bible, so let me tell you: many times I feel almost sick because many Rastaman think that Haile Selassie I is the Almighty, and now I am interested to know many things about Bobo Ashanti and about Prince Emanuel. If I'm telling you that it's because I am not the wisdom man, and no one can find knowledge in me, but let me tell you. Many Rasta they got the wrong philosophy. I don't want to become the leader of no one, just I wanna do what Jah told me, and Jah told me, be careful with the falsified prophets. They are coming to the world saying that they come in the Jesus Christ name, but in the bottom, they belong to the death kingdom. I wanna help Rastafari to understand who is JAH, my Father and who is Jesus Christ, my Lord. So, I know in this world, the people are full of confusion, but everything is vanity. But I need that you read psalm 104, 14. Jah said Jah created the grass for the animal, the plants for the use of the man, and from the land, man can take the bread. It's not all that I want to write, and I don't want to say that you are wrong, because I am no one for criticize my brother, because before criticise my brother, I have to criticize myself, and never forget Jesus Christ said, in James 4:4, el mundo y sus deceos pasan, mas quien hace la voluntad del JAH permanecera para siempre

Vendito es el hombre que corre tras la sabiduria y la inteligencia, por que todo esto viene del Jah.

Brother, we have to look for the Jah love because if we don't love one another, how we can say that we love Jah? When all the love come from Jah. Blessed man. Jah bless you and give you understanding and knowledge in the name of my Lord Jesus Christ, AMEN

Hello my brother,

It's me again, the Cuban RastafarI. I think that you have to know what Matthew says in Matthew 24, 23-28. I need that you read that once again, because many people say we are right and we are the light of the world, but the Bible never talk about anything bad because Timothy said in 4:1-5

Now the spirit speaketh expressly, that in the letter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrine of the Devil, speaking lies and hypcrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry and comanding to abstain from meat which God hath created to be recieved with thanksgiving of them which believe and know that truth. For every creature of God is good and nothing to be refused if it be recieved with thanksgiving for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

Hey. brother, I told you from the beginning that I don't want to aggue with no one, but I think that you are treating the people when they smoke ganja like drugsman, but this is not so, because ganja is not just for smoking. Ganja is for the benefit of the nations, and never forget the herb will be the healing of the nation, and we never have to treat the people for all that we are thinking that they are wrong. If we have to help the people, we have to do what Paul says- if I am between the Rasta I am a Rasta. If I am between the Jews, I am Jewish too, because all that I try to do it doesn't come from me, just from my Lord, Jesus Christ, who taught me and still he is teaching me how to find the real way of JAH, and how I have to live in the JAH way. Is all for today my brother. The peace of Jesus Christ my Lord be with all of you, blessed, in the name of Jesus Christ.
