Back in the 80's Cannabis was 10% as powerful as it is today.

If you are an island and have no one that will deeply mourn your passing then ...

No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend's
Or of thine own were:
Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.

John Donne

I can't say that the above is biblical - It's a poem


Poet's Notes about The Poem
These famous words by John Donne were not originally written as a poem - the passage is taken from the 1624 Meditation 17, from Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions and is prose. The words of the original passage are as follows:

John Donne
Meditation 17
Devotions upon Emergent Occasions

'No man is an iland, intire of it selfe; every man is a peece of the Continent, a part of the maine; if a clod bee washed away by the Sea, Europe is the lesse, as well as if a Promontorie were, as well as if a Mannor of thy friends or of thine owne were; any mans death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankinde; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee....'  'Google'

The 1930’s and 1980’s drug war propaganda was very effective in deceiving the masses and influencing the opinions of people for decades. But the truth can never be hidden forever and I’m thankful to God that more and more people are awaking out of their ignorance of what Cannabis is and what it isn’t.

I smoke Cannabis daily. The THC kind. It has been a blessing and I give thanks to the Almighty Creator for creating every seed bearing herb for the service of man. It serves me well.

Regardless of your thoughts on Cannabis, personal freedom is a good thing. If I don’t have the freedom to put whatever I want into my body so long as it doesn’t harm another person, than I do not have ownership over my own body. And if I don’t have ownership over my own body than someone else does and I am not free.

I wish freedom for all of you to do what you want with your own lives as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else. Even if you want to ruin your own life. Every person should have the right to ruin their lives if they so choose.... to their own master will they rise or fall.

God Bless you ALL.

Interesting comments all.

I have to wonder?

When I was growing up my friends and family included members of several religions.
Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, & none of the above.
Now I am sincerely wondering why any of the members of these and other religions are so afraid when one of their family takes an interest in some other religion. Is their "god" so weak that their "god" cannot allow anyone to disagree for fear that their "god" will lose members.

Seems to me a real GOD would be able to motivate belief in anyone...they chose.

Is their "faith" so weak and fearful that they will go so far as to kill a friend who disagrees?

That is "sick"... >:(

I just read an article that for the nativity scene this year, the vatican is shipping in
700 tons of sand and international artists from all over the world to sculpt it .😂😂😂



There is a Pakistani woman in Pakistan named Asia Bibi. She is, strangely enough, Catholic. In 2010, she was sentenced to death and fined $1,100 for the major crime of blasphemy, because she was allegedly critical of Mohammed. She appealed her case in 2018 while spending eight years in prison. The Supreme Court bravely overturned the decision for a gross lack of evidence with indications that her accusers lied. There have been major protests in Pakistan over the Supreme Court decision, as the people want her hung.

Asia has requested asylum in the U.K., but has been turned down because: “the UK government had concerns that her moving to the UK would cause security concerns and unrest among certain sections of the community and would also be a security threat to British embassies abroad which might be targeted by Islamist terrorists.”  Germany has done the same. Other countries like the U.S., Canada, and Australia are (deliberately?) dragging their feet while she is in hiding with people actively searching to kill her.
Meanwhile, Italy’s Foreign Minister Matteo Salvini, said that he’d do “everything humanly possible” to bring Bibi to Italy and grant her asylum. He said Italy is also working “discreetly” with other Western governments to make that possible. Back in Feb, before she was acquitted, the pope met with her husband and daughter and said, he “thinks a lot about your mother and prays for her,” defining Bibi as a “wonderful martyr woman.”

Correct me if I’m wrong, but now that she's been acquitted, I don’t believe he has become involved with this ‘wonderful catholic martyr woman’s’ need for asylum. After making that comment, I suppose it would be much simpler for him if she truly becomes a martyr. Then again, maybe he’s just too busy playing in his giant sand box.

I read that she was let out of jail on condition she would not leave Pakistan.

The Whole Babylon religious/ political system is build on sand and the storms and winds
and the rains come ,,,,breaking it down.

Proverbs 16:4-5
The Lord has made everything for its purpose,
even the wicked for the day of trouble.
Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord;
be assured ,he will not go unpunished.

Amen, Come Lord Jesus

Psalm 14:1-3:
« The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
    They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good.The Lord looks down from heaven on the children of man,to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God.They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt;there is none who does good,
not even one. »
Psalm 53:1-3:
« The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity; there is none who does good.God looks down from heaven on the children of man to see if there are any who understand,who seek after God.They have all fallen away; together they have become corrupt; there is none who does good,
 not even one. »
Romans 3:10-12:
«  as it is written:“None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands;no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;  no one does good,
not even one.”

Three strikes. Fools and hypocrites out.

And for us, God’s children, 2 Peter 3-17:
« Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen. »

Yep,
More evidence that "religion" is all about entertainment and mind control.

Whereas God wants us to be thinkers and reasoners and lovers of righteousness.

It's interesting that in many instances, the "unchurched" are more loving and helpful and less judgmental and condemning in their daily lives.


…13 For it is not the hearers of the Law who are righteous before God, but it is the doers of the Law who will be declared righteous. 14 Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the Law, do by nature what the Law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the Law, 15 since they show that the work of the Law is written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts either accusing or defending them.…

I am elated. My Strong's  Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible by Thomas Nelson  has just arrived. I have a "Hendrickson Publishers" and it differs from "Thomas Nelson."
My conclusion is to rather get the "Thomas Nelson " edition.
For example from "Hendrickson Publishers" has this for #G3040  limen apparently a primary word; a harbour : Compare G 2568. (Thats it???)
Now this from Thomas Nelson #G3040  limen apparently a primary word; a harbour: haven; THE FAIR HAVENS +2570 {1X }
THIS IS A PLACE CALLED "FAIR HAVEN" ACTS 27:8,12 SEE: BAGD 475A; THAYER  378C. (All caps are missing from Hendrickson.)
As can be seen from the above that there are a lot of missing information with the "Hendrickson Publishers." of Strong's.
Who gives anyone the right to tamper with another man's work, without their permission?
