Speaking Up

Friday, May 26, 2017
I did something to a friend years ago.  How do I get up the courage to apologize?

Sincerely,
Secretly Sorry

Dear Secretly Sorry,

Courage comes from knowing that you are doing the right thing.  When we build our lives and choices on a good foundation, we can find peace through the storms of life (Matt 7:24-27).  The truth sets us free (Jhn 8:32).  Asking for forgiveness is the right thing to do (Jas 5:16); you know it is the right thing to do (Jas 4:17), and in the end, you will be happy that you did.

The Other Grass

Thursday, May 25, 2017
Is it okay to smoke weed?  Genesis 1:12 says, “...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.”  I have cancer, so it helps with the pain.

Sincerely,
Cancer Patient

Dear Cancer Patient,

Consuming marijuana for “recreational” purposes is wrong.  Yes, God created every green herb on day three (Gen 1:11-13), but He didn’t create them to be used inappropriately.  God condemns drunkenness and insobriety (Rom 13:13, 1 Cor 6:10).  If any drug, including marijuana, is used to create a state of drunkenness – then, yes, it is a sin.  If your doctor prescribes a drug for pain, as a treatment, etc. – that is a different matter.  We are very sorry to hear of your cancer, and it is appropriate to follow doctor’s orders in such matters.

God created everything in this world for our good, and He created us for good works (Eph 2:10).  Abusing the plants and herbs that God has blessed this world with harms us and is a sin.  When we don’t treat our bodies with respect, we harm ourselves as well as displeasing God (1 Cor 6:19-20).
