Yesterday’s blog referenced USA-TODAY’s Wednesday article entitled, “Young celebs pipe up for pot.” Entertainment artists such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, and even Justin Bieber were cited as extolling the benefits of weed. In addition to the information I cited yesterday, here are a few more facts:
- The psychoactive ingredient in pot, tetrahydrocannabinol, stays in the body a month or more and can impair users for days or week. Who wants to be driving a two-lane road, headed toward a pothead who toked two days ago, let alone someone who just downed a six-pack.
- Other risks include lung cancer (just like cigarettes), distorted perception, paranoia, reduced libido with men (that got the attention of 50% of those reading this), depression, and short-term memory loss. (I can see you potheads rolling your eyes, but it’s all true, and gets worse with continued, heavy use.)
- In case you’re wondering, yes, you can get demons from drugs – including pot. I see this confirmed countless times in my Encounter sessions. Recreational pot also falls under the condemnation of Revelation 9:21 (“sorceries” in the Greek refers to mind-altering drugs), and is in the same league as murder (according to Revelation 9)!
Revelation 18 also says that the End Time regime of Satan, “Babylon the Great,” is inhabited by every kind of “foul spirit” (demon) and that by “sorceries” (drugs, pharmakeia in the Greek) were “all nations deceived.” [Note-even Wikipedia observes: Pharmakeia is the Greek word for pharmacy . . . [and] refers to the making of spell-giving potions, or alchemical potions (or elixirs) believed to have transforming powers, such as the power to extend life, boost energy, or enhance the mind.
Don’t be deceived by pop stars or other entertainment heroes who promote pot, as Revelation 18 warns
