Some people may think this is a no-brainer, but it’s a legitimate question in our current culture. For many of us, it’s still illegal in our state of residence, so it’s not an issue. But for others, and possibly many more others in the coming years, this may not be the case. Here at LifePoint, we believe that while the Bible doesn’t specifically address weed, it’s encouragement to us not to “get drunk with wine” but rather to be “filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18) applies to mind-altering drugs other than just alcohol. We are to honor God with our bodies (I Corinthians 6:20), not abuse them. Is it glorifying to God when we alter our brains and intentionally put ourselves into a mentally impaired state? Not likely. Ultimately, we believe we can find satisfaction in the reality that Jesus Christ loved us enough to die in our place instead of trying to find it in escaping reality through the use of marijuana or other drugs.
