What If

I can't find the rhyme in all my reason
I've lost sense of time and all seasons
I feel I've been beaten down
By the words of men who have no grounds
I can't sleep beneath the trees of wisdom
When your ax has cut the roots that feed them
Forked tongues in bitter mouths
Can drive a man to bleed from inside out

What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
What if eye for an eye?

I've seen the wicked fruit of your vine
Destroy the man who lacks a strong mind
Human pride sings a vengeful song
Inspired by the times you've been walked on
My stage is shared by many millions
Who lift their hands up high because they feel this
We are one We are strong
The more you hold us down the more we press on

What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
What if eye for an eye?

I know I can't hold the hate inside my mind
'Cause what consumes your thoughts controls your
life.

So I'll just ask a question
What if?
What if your words could be judged like a crime?
--Creed




"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of Temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A prohibition law strikes at the very principles upon which our government was founded."
-Abraham Lincoln



"We must not blindly add to the body count and the terrible cost of the War on Drugs, only to learn from another Robert McNamara 30 years from now that what we've been doing is, 'wrong, terribly wrong.'" Walter Cronkite - 1995

There is no need to search the Bible for mention of cannabis or its use to attack the prohibition of marijuana from a biblical perspective (Re: Letters, "Rev. Pothead," March 15-21).

The seed-bearing plant we call marijuana has been in existence since the third day of Creation, with God decaring it good. He then gave it to man along with all the other seed-bearing plants and trees on the sixth day, and declared it and them not only as good, but very good. Later in Genesis, he also confirms that he gave all green plants to man for food when he made his convenant with Noah.

While this may not coincide with the the so-called knowledge that comes from our modern day technology, let God be true and all men be liars. The issue of how it is consumed is mere nit picking and the laws of prohibition actually prevent it from being consumed in a more proper manner. While it may be true there are no direct references to cannabis in the Bible, we are told how we are to treat the people in the world and each other, in regards to all things of issue. We are told not to judge those in the world or those in Christ. The consumption of anything falls under the category of debatable issues which we are specifically instructed not to condemn.

Criminalizing cannabis use is undoubtedly evidence of judgement and condemnation. The end does not justify the means. Not that the end could be justified anyway. There is no earthly good that has been or ever will be accomplished by supporting the laws that prohibit marijuana, that can even begin to justify the earthly and eternal harm that has been done and continues to be done. For those that will be held accountable, the responsibility will be great.

Truth

"Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge."- Paul, I Timothy 6:20.



New Scofield Reference Note to I Timothy 6:20
Permission for use granted by Oxford University Press.

Truth cannot contradict the Bible, since God, who knows all things, kept the writers of the Bible from error.

If theories that rest upon mere speculation or insufficient evidence are presented as fact, in any area of knowledge, e.g. in religion, philosophy, science, etc., they deserve the description that the apostle gives here: "what is falsely called knowledge," from which they are to "turn away". - Note to I Timothy 6:20, They Holy Bible, New Scofield Study System NIV, 1984 Edition, C.I. Scofield, Oxford University Press.

Genesis 1:11-13

Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning--the third day.


I Timothy 4:4 - "For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving." - Paul
