|Messian Dread here says that Christafari says
that one does not have to stop smoking weed before accepting
Christ as savior. Well, I don't debate this. I believe one
could be stoned and/or drunk and accept Jesus as Savior. But I
believe after accepting Christ as Savior...sooner or later
Christ should be the only high one needs. If someone already
accepted Christ as savior and Christ comes and lives in one's
heart...then why would one still need to smoke weed or get
drunk to feel close to Jah? Is not the fact the Jesus lives in
your heart supose to be enough to make you feel close to Jah?
I would ask: "What do you define as be "Sober minded at all
times"? Do you think that this statement saying one should be,
"Sober at all times" ONLY refers to being drunk but not
stated on another post, I am against smoking, not just because it's
bad for you, but also because it is illegal (at least in the U.S.).
It is written that we are to obey those who GOD has put over us.
Other than that, the value of anything can be detemined by
how/if it brings you closer to GOD, or if it just a selfish act that
we choose to justify.
More importantly though, we should
remember to let the love that JESUS came to teach us shine through
in all that we say and do. Our relationship with HIM, and with
eachother is more important than our opinions on the way we worship
HIM (as long as we stay to the scriptures). We should have the
capacity to love one another, even though we disagree with

|Greetings, I have read this forum
thread with interest. Please help me understand Romans 13 and my
duty under bad laws: |
1 Let every soul be
subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God:
the powers that be are ordained of God.
2 Whosoever therefore
resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that
resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
surface, this would appear to condemn Ganja use in the United States
by Christians. But what happens when the "higher powers"
(government) uses lies and deciet and wholey un-holy practices in
efforts to keep arguably "bad laws" from being overturned? Stuff
like forfeiture of assets, taking children away from parents who
smoke, prosecuting the sick and dying who use it, trying to overturn
state laws, etc etc?
In the U.S., many Christains
acknowledge that the Federal government lied to get cannabis
outlawed in the 1930s and continues to "exaggerate" (read: lie)
about the dangers. So what kind of a moral authority does thiis rely
on, especially in a country where the governmental authority is
supposed to be of the people, for the people and by the people?
Granted, they are not asking Christians to renounce their
faith, which would be grounds for complete disobedience of the law.
But they *are* asking Christians to support a massive lie that
marijuana use is highly addictive (on a par with herion), has no
medicinal value (in spite of its own studies to the countrary) and
continues to be a grave threat warrenting imprisonment and asset
seizure. How can any Christian in good conscious support the
continued War on Drugs? Don't the lies invalidate the moral
authority that Romans 13 calls us to subject ourselves to?
"There are 100,000 total marijuana
smokers in the U.S., and most are Negroes,
and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz and swing,
from marijuana use. This marijuana can cause white women to seek
relations with Negroes, entertainers and any others...
The primary reason to
outlaw marijuana is its effect on the

|Ises I, Rastafan, agreed to the
fulness. Added to that, Romans 13 doesn't speak at all about the
government of babylon. |
The living bible translated DEACON with

The Bible does not tell us to be good fascists and do
what we are told et cetera.
