Why do believers say it is okay to drink alcohol but not okay to take marijuana? Are either okay according to the Bible?

  1. Thanks Brother.. I drink wine on Shabbat and feasts. Celebratory, but that’s it for the most part.. there are times I FEEL to want to “wind down” and I do, but I’m at home and relaxing… Other than that, I don’t… I do NOT condone smoking marijuana at all, though.. that was one of my major walks that I came out of.. I used to smoke ounces of cali-weed every day to myself..Small or great, it’s no bueno..thanks for doing this message & sharing your heart, Akhi.I really appreciate it. Much love3

  2. Detachment from the world is a very attractive attribute about marijuana. Unfortunately, it also results in detachment from The Most High….makes me feel “worldly” and unfocused on Torah. I have fallen many times, but, I made a vow to never use again..but, I only used recreationally. I choose Torah ( Y’Shua ).
    I just can’t do both. Just can’t. Believe me…I’ve tried. 

    • +bridgerbergman sad for you me im very happy with it 🙂 each one have to do thing with personal conviction ,no doubt ,if 4 you it wasnt good its a good thing you chosse to respect yourself and stop god bless

    • Then you shouldnt be smoking but i smoke work a full time job do my studies and everything else if u let anything overtake u or control u its a sin

    • Dang that sucks for you bro.. You should think about truly repenting and letting the ways of this world and society go because marijuana only amplifies the desire of your heart and mind.. When i smoke i grow even hungrier for the things of God… If you must fall fall upward toward the most high not away.. Be real with The most high dont try to hide from him.. He can already see your nakedness just go to him in all things and in all ways…

  3. 1 Corinthians 6:12 All things are permitted for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are permitted for me, but I will not be controlled by anything.

    • Bravo, to the scriptures, scriptures RULES above  every silly or wise comment after of before yours.

    • Matthew Cunningham Searth about pharmakeia in the “new testament” and in the septuagint. Read about the vercicle in the septuagint about this term, it is not weed.

  4. This is a subject that I have been thinking about for a while now. I think the Creator puts everything here for a purpose. The problem is that the Creator gives and man corrupts. Thank you very much for giving me a Biblical view on this subject.

  5. And what was the purpose of the wine at the wedding in Cana? The amount produced was approximately 150 U.S. gallons. Was that just to give a “sip” to each guest? I think not. There was merry-making and a joyous celebration of the wedding, and our Deliverer was there and facilitated it with his first recorded miracle.

    This was not grape juice as some would argue. No, this was WINE, and it was VERY good wine. And it was not for Pesach, Sabbath, or any other Moedim, it was for the lighthearted celebration of the wedding. Of course drunkenness is wrong, but to claim that it is wrong to drink any amount more than a sip is wrong and unscriptural.

      The Bible very clearly states we are NOT to be drunk. There isn’t a Biblical definition that differentiates being buzzed versus drunk. I’d assert that when you feel different, that’s enough.
      when i did a thorough study a few years back, I discovered that the alcohol we have now is FAR stronger than what existed back then.
      Consider the FRUIT: people drink and fight, drink and sleep together, drink and get foul mouthed or perverse.

  6. All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
    1 Corintians 6:12

  7. To the healthw.m. nice video, i really was expecting from you to be a condoner, not a smoker but condoner, any way, we can talk about wine and cannabis all day long, with out to even touching the surface, all i might add is an advice from my rebbe

  8. Proverbs 31 – [6] Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. [7] Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.

  9. Wine was designed to change your mood. It’s not a sin to change your mood.

    “Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.”
    ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭31:6‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    “And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man’s heart.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭104:15‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    “A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things.”
    ‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭10:19‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  10. The Bible certainly warns against “staying too long in the wine” and the destruction that comes from it. It does also say, in Proverbs, “do not withhold the wine from a man in the day of his sorrow”. The Bible urges people “to be of sober mind” because we know not the hour of His return. It gets interesting where someone like Noah was found passed out drunk in his tent. It makes up one of the Bible`s greatest stories.

  11. I agree with what you said- no alcohol or drugs to alter your mind. Why take a chance and open a door you may spend years trying to close? Do not give the devil a foothold. That’s just my opinion.

  12. Norman Willis (Nazarene Israel) has (I believe) a sound teaching on Cannabis. Everything has a medicinal value, and the dose makes the poison. There is great variety in plants. All in the species is not the same. (CBD is very different from hemp, and both have their place in nutrition and medicine).
