MARIJUANA & THE BIBLE

wpe77622.gif (59453 bytes)

On either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare 12 manner of fruits, and yielding her fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
(Rev. 22:1-2)

WHAT IS IS WORD OF GOD IN RELATION TO CANNABIS / HEMP / MARIJUANA?

The hemp plant (scientific name: cannabis, nickname: marijuana) is one of the many useful herbs "yielding seed after its kind" (Genesis 1:12) blessed on the third day of creation and presented to people for use in conjunction with our free will.

God said, "Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth....to you it will be for meat.... And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. (Genesis 1:29-31)

The Lord said ..Afore harvest, when the bud is perfect and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks and take away and cut down the branches. (Isaiah 18:4-5)

HOW WAS THE MARIJUANA PLANT USED DURING BIBLICAL TIMES?

Cannabis was used 12 ways: as clothing, paper, cord, sails, fishnet, oil, sealant, incense, food, and in ceremony, relaxation and medicine.
"Cana" got its name from the same root word as "cannabis," indicating that hemp was grown there.

The Three Wise Men who came to witness the birth of Christ are believed to be Zoroastrians, who regarded hemp as a special gift of God.

WHAT ABOUT MARIJUANA TODAY?

Hemp today has thousands of non-smoking uses. Modern technology has devised many new uses for the helpful hemp plant--like biomass energy, fuel oil, construction materials, plastic, and so on.

It is used worldwide as medicine. It is among the best food crops on Earth, and is a popular relaxant and a spiritual tool.

And people are being put in jail for it, in spite of many government reports showing marijuana is no danger to society, if used responsibly.

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT DRUGS?

The only drug specifically discussed in the Bible is alcohol, which is a useful reference. Wine has long been offered to God as a sacrifice in religious occasions such as Passover--the Last Supper of Jesus and His disciples. It continues to be a traditional part of today's church services.

Yet the simple joys of drinking were also sung:

He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle and herb for the seruice of man:  that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man and oil to make his face to shineth. (Psalm 104:14-15)

The Bible distinguishes between use and abuse.

Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. (Proverbs 31:6-7)

Woe unto them that ... follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! Isaiah 5:10)

Jesus began his public life by miraculously turning water into wine at the Wedding at Cana (John 2:1-10) when the wine ran out at the celebration.

WHAT DO THE 10 COMMANDMENTS SAY TO PEOPLE ABOUT USING MARIJUANA??

That thou shalt not hold it as a false god, "not lie" about it, "not steal" it and "not covet" it (Ex. 20:1-17). Nowhere in the Bible does it say people cannot grow, possess or smoke cannabis hemp.

HOW DID JESUS SPEAK OF MARIJUANA?

Although He lived among marijuana smokers, He said not to criticize a for their habits.

"Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; that which cometh out of the mouth defileth a man."  (Mat. 15:11)

"Let him who is without sin cast the first stone." (John 8:7)

I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of Itself: but to him that esteemeth anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean. For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. (Paul: Romans 14:2,3,13,14,17)

WHAT DID HE SAY ABOUT GOVERNMENT?

He said to keep church and state separate.

render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's and unto God the things which be Gods." (Luke 20 25)

As we have already seen, it was God, not government, who gave man the seed bearing herbs to use.

WHO DID JESUS SAY CAN JUDGE OTHERS?

Jesus reserved judgement for God alone.

"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged." (Matthew 7:14)

WHAT ABOUT CRIME AND PUNISHMENT?

Jesus preached love and forgiveness.

"Peter said, "Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, "I say not unto thee until seven times: But until seventy timesseven." (Mat. 18:21-22)

He warned us about seizure and forfeiture laws.

"Beware of the scribes which ...devour widows' houses.... The same shall recieve greater damnation." (Luke 20:46-47)

The soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to euery soldier a part. (Jn. 19:33)

The Bible even predicted prohibition.

In the later times some shall ... speak lies in hypocrisy ... commanding to abstain from meats which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. (Paul: 1 Timothy 14)

WHAT, THEN, IS THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN RESPONSE TO MARIJUANA PROHIBITION?

Tolerance, compassion and an unselfish effort to end this persecution of God's children.

Blessed are the peacemakers. (Matthew 5.9)

The Lord. . . hath sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to them that are bound. (Isaiah 61:1)

Prisons do not save souls. It was God who created hemp. He gave us free will and instructed that mankind use "every green herb" on Earth.

"they persecute me wrongfully; help thou  me." (Ps. 119:86)

Nothing in either the Bible or the U.S. Constitution says we can imprison those who follow their conscience and use marijuana in good faith.

Every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused if it be received with thanksgiving.... If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine. (Paul: I Timothy 4;1-6)

A wise man will hear, and will increase learning: and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels.  --Proverbs

An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. (Prov 6:16-19)

Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more. (Prov 31:6-7)

Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! (Isa 5:11)

For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.
For afore the harvest, when the bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and take away and cut down the branches. (Isa 18:4-5)

And as troops of robbers wait for a man, so the company of priests murder in the way by consent: for they commit lewdness. (Hosea 6:9)

Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation." (Luke 20:46-47)

"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." (Matt 5:9-10)

"Judge not, that ye be not judged.
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?" (Matt 7:1-4)

"Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man." (Matt 15:11)

And he said, "That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man." (Mark 7:18-20)

Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat:  (John 19:23)

For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs... Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean. For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. (Romans 14:2,3,13,14,17)
