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. You realize that besides the scientists and medical grounds Christians are now in it to discuss if the use of marijuana need to be supported.
Below are the examples of whether the Bible endorses the use of marijuana. The Bible teaching states that all plants and herbs were created by God and with that its use is not prohibited. Cannabis is one of the plants created and blessed by God hence there is no problem using it, you find that there are some Christians who use marijuana for medical purposes, others for recreational purposes, and some who consider it as food.
It is important to use wisdom ion which plants to use and which ones are harmful. You fin find that the Bible permits the use of alcohol but in moderation hence there are some Christians who argue that marijuana can be used in moderation. 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.
Anything that is not glorifying God and holy spirit should not be allowed in the body. In as much as the use of marijuana may not be prohibited, one needs to ask if God will be happy to dwell in such a body that is under the influence of marijuana.
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. The use of marijuana ensures that one lacks control over his or her body to an extent that one cannot reason, think or remember things in the right way. As a Christian the only influence that one needs to have is the one that comes as a result of the holy spirit, the use of marijuana is not an option for any Christian and especially where the intentions are to become high.
