Eureka Christians Against Marijuana?

I'm not sure if this Craigslist ad is a joke or not. Even if it is serious, is it also be true that "There were more marijuana related arrests and convictions than anytime in the history of Eureka!".

Arresting pot growers and people in possession is a big money maker for the state so it wouldn't surprise me if the information is correct though the add does read very sarcastically.

Christian do not care if you smoke or grow pot. The # 1 people for tighter controls are the mega growers to prop up prices.

It looks like a legit post. Religious people hate things like everyone else. However, unlike everyone else, they take their existing sense of morality and try to wrap their religious books around it using creative interpretations.

The Bible has been used to justify slavery and oppose slavery, justify murder and oppose murder, justify discrimination and oppose discrimination, and so on. It's like people wonder how the Westboro folks can do what they do. Well, they have a Bible verse for everything. We're talking Bronze and Iron age morality.

Then Eureka is not the place for the Disabled, Elderly, Cancer Patients, AIDS Patients, etc. CBD is being used to save Lives. Jesus Loves US for the Bible tells US so! God created Cannabis and gave Man the knowledge to use it for his Health and well-being. He who speaks against the Word should take heed that they are being deceived are no more than Satan's mouth-piece.

12:56, that's circular logic. The Bible is true because the Bible states it's true? There's no historical evidence outside of the Bible that Jesus existed. The Bible is a set of claims, not facts. There is, however, circumstantial evidence that Jesus is a conglomeration of earlier man-god myths, from virgin birth to walking on water (and the other miracles attributed to the character) to crucifixion. There's very little in the New Testament that is an original idea.

"And God said, 'See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of the earth..."

Our Authorization is from God, not from man. For many of us in Humboldt County, good Christians for whom marijuana is our sacrament, our mind food that not only heals our aches and pains but can bring us closer to God with spiritual connectivity.

There is an Aquariana Divide in which those on the Old Age, Piscean side do not understand that Christianity now has a new sacrament as too much bad karma has built up around the old one. But this phase of commercialization of marijuana in order to get it spread the fastest way around the world is hard on those of us who see that very same commercialization producing the side effects like we see in our newspaper headlines. Luckily, this phase of God's Plan will be drawing to a close in the not so distance future. Pot is here to stay.

I believe most historians feel Jesus existence is a historical fact. When I was in Saudi Arabia even Muslims said he was real, but they felt he was just a regular guy, not a Son of God.

As far as the Bible goes, I am skeptical. When you think of how modern day literature is skewed towards one agenda or another, I have difficulty believing some book pieced together by different people over centuries is all that accurate.

Fred, please provide just one bit of evidence that Jesus was more than just a fictional character. The Romans kept very precise records, yet nothing that I know of points to him being real.

I can answer that with historical information most Christians do not know about: The Jewish Talmud's accounts of Jesus Christ which I believe to be the closest anyone will ever come to the "Historical Jesus".

Yeishu ben Pantera is the historical Jesus Christ and you can only find out about him through filtering through the Talmud's very anti-Christian and very obtusely written commentaries about Yeishu and a few other names that stood proxy for Jesus Christ. The thing that makes the Talmud's accounts so convincing to me is the fact that in them, there is no Romans involved at all in Yeishu's trial for blasphemy and "leading many astray". No Roman crucifixion, Yeishu and his five disciples are stoned to death and Yeishu's body hung on a tree as per Jewish law. Paul refers to this in Gal. 3:13 I think it is. The other fact that makes Yeishu a good bet for Jesus is that he does his Christ the Magician work (a Jewish prayer bowl found in the harbor of Alexandria was inscribed with this title and dated between 200 B.C. and 200 A.D. a good 100 years before Jesus Christ's Story supposedly takes place which gave enough time for a Christ cult to form around the figure of Yeishu and his teachings. Otherwise, how on earth do Christians show up in Rome only a few years after Jesus' death? And Paul meets already established churches in his early missionizing and he's only a decade or two away from Jesus' death. I go with Yeishu and not the Church Father's and RCC's thoroughly manipulated New Testament Story of Jesus Christ written at least a hundred years after the fact if not later than that.

Yes, many stories of men just like Jesus exist in many books throughout history. I was looking for real evidence. A yearbook photo, Facebook account, some of his writings that didn't make it into the bible, his license to drive a dinosaur, something that I can relate to!!

But now you don't to verify Divine Intervention in the world from past records which cannot be authenticated. Divine Intervention is happening in our times so that all can see. I got paid $200 last month for my 18 years of voluntary work on the Heartlands' lottery project. I'm trying to figure out the hourly wage now.
