Drug users show their confusion by attacking …. trying to use one of the main pillars of America’s foundation – “SCRIPTURE” against us …. by claiming it says, what it does not!   It is not ambiguous!

Is it that they incorrectly believe they’ve found a passage that justifies their use of marijuana, … or is it that they’ve found a translation which they know, is easy for drug users to misinterpret?

More than likely, it’s just that don’t have the ability to understand.   It’s as if they have “scales on their eyes,” as Paul did, when he went blind on the road to Damascus.

They’ve misread or purposefully searched for and found a version which they believe says what they want it to say.

To understand scripture correctly, one often has to go back to the Hebrew interpretation, or find a current scholar who is fluid in Hebrew and able to translate / communicate it correctly to others.

From the STONE EDITION of the Jewish Bible – The Artscroll English Tanach:  Look at Genesis 1:29; it’s where God told man that He has given mankind every herbage yielding seed that’s on the surface of the earth.

God did NOT instruct that it was OK to smoke it, nor to eat it.

To see which plants one can consume, one only has to read a bit farther and there, it’s very clear!

What is OK to “consume” (according to the last ½ of that sentence), is: “and every tree that has seedyielding fruit; it shall be yours for food.”

Pot has seeds, but do its seeds yield fruit?   Those 3 underlined words above, destroys their entire argument.

Farther down, in the next sentence – verse 30, where it says that “every green herb is for food”, …. to understand that, one only has to look up the definition of “herb”.

Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary states that herb is a seed plant which does NOT develop woody persistent tissue.   It goes on, with other disqualifications of pot, which shows it’s not an herb, but the most pronounced is the “woody tissue” – pot users and those who want to justify pot as a magical herb that cures every ill, tout its woody pulp which can also be used to make paper, etc.

It’s as if pot users have lost the ability to comprehend, to connect words together, …. into sentences …..

Or, … is it intentionally disjointed in an attempt to convince each other what they do is OK?

About josiahe

Watching closely, working to understand all I may, in this "Age of Information", even from my limited view, I can see much of what's going on ..... and I oft see it's going to impact all of us which is why I share it. My focus is to expose evil, and to serve my Lord and savior Jesus in whatever way He shows me. If one waits long enough, better writers will come along and comment; it's just that I have so little patience with the evil that lurks among us and I've wasted so much time and now, there is so little left! WELCOME!
