New mother nature God's healing herb: With out a doubt one of the most controversial topics among the general public today is the legalization of marijuana. It's concerns are not only about generating money, health, addiction, and danger to the community, but the moral and spiritual aspects as well. So, what does the bible say about smoking marijuana? Actually, the bible does not address the subject of marijuana smoking, but it does speak of using spells, potions, and drugs. Better know as sorcery or sorceries. This is where most bible teachers get their main argument against legalization of marijuana.
Lets take a look and see what "sorceries" means in the original manuscripts. Strong's Greek dictionary #5331 "Pharmakeia" from #5332 "Pharmakeus" meaning medication, a spell-giving potion, a druggist, a poisoner. Does this describe marijuana use? Not really... This sounds more like pharmaceuticals, morphine, heroin, cocaine, crystal meth, or hallucinogenic type of drugs. Smoking pot today is more in the category of fine wine and imported beer drinking, "only with medical and healing benefits."
It was God who created the healing herbs. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:12). The land produced vegetation of all sorts of seed bearing plants (including marijuana), and trees bearing fruit. The seeds produced plants, herbs and trees of the same kind, and God saw that everything He created was good and created for its purpose. "Cannabis was created as a healing herb."
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. (Genesis 1:29). God gave mankind every seed-bearing plant, herb, and fruit tree for food to eat and enjoy for healthy living.
In the new testament of the bible you will find that it is not what goes in your body that will spiritually defile you, but rather what comes out of your mouth. Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. (Matthew 15:11). You are not made unholy by eating certain foods, smoking pot, using tobacco, drinking wine, beer etc. It is what you say and think that makes you spiritually unclean. However, any of these things can be unhealthy to the flesh body if in excess. Moderation, good choice, and organics, is the key to keeping the body healthy. Nothing more relaxing than some good organic herb and a glass of wine at the end of a hard working day.
