  1. Apparently it isn't against the law. It's a business that is advertised and successful. Otherwise he'd be posting from his prison cell. He didn't mention that. As I said before, defrauding people, especially the elderly is a felony in most states yet people like Benny Hinn, Al Sharpton, Joel Osteen and other crooked preachers get a pass. Are they still Christian? Sometimes, we're quick to judge. I prefer a little grace.
  2. Sort of. I could use an example of a drug store. Once they dispense a prescription for a controlled drug, after it leaves their hands, are they to blame if it's abused or handed off to someone else. Or an arms manufacturer who is sued because their weapon performed exactly as it was designed to work. Or how about a Christian Chick-fil-A employee selling a #1 meal to an obese woman therefore contributing to her sin of gluttony. One can take this to the extremes. Kevin was getting dumped on big time.
  3. Are there degrees of simplicity? As St. Augustine said: "Love God and do as you please" As long as that statement is taken in the spirit in which it was intended, that's as simple as can be. If you love God, you'll do everything to honor him. The real question would be what honors God? You can be saved, keep the commandments and you're golden. It's some of the things written by man later on that becomes sticky which begs the question: Yes, you're a Christian but are you a GOOD Christian. There are good Mormons. There are good Muslims, Jews, Hindus. Does the door slam shut in the face of someone who may have been led down a road because of where they live. Is that what God intended? I hope not.
  4. That's just one of those verses that scares the crap out of me. If any friend of mine recited that, I'd be calling the suicide hotline.
  5. Of course you can still be a Christian! You are not the one who is cheating, it may be some of the students who hire your services. After you complete your work, you don't know exactly what they're going to do with it. You don't submit the finished work do you? We all know of those corrupt health and wealth preachers who, as far as I'm concerned, commit far greater sins every single day. Is their work Christian? I think not. You're making money right? I trust you're tithing right? And, let me take a wild guess... Many of those students are Muslims anyway? Why worry?
  6. This might clear up a few questions about medical marijuana and its uses. I'm not a proponent of just smoking a joint to feel better. Given the proper dosage, strength and specific condition being treated, I believe it has a place in modern medicine. I also know that drug companies are one of the biggest detractors because, quite simply, they can't profit by it. Harvard Health article
  7. That's a very good point. Yes, depending on the brand, it's as natural as just about any organic medication that is produced under strict laboratory conditions. That said, yes, a tincture oil can be made completely natural using, for example, 100% pure coconut oil. I made CBD infused coconut oil for my wife using an ultra low THC strain of plant and a sous vide oven.
  8. CBD oil for medicinal purposes? No smoke, no fire, no buzz.
  9. Well, how about just using CBD oil which has no "high" associated with it? It's a 100% natural, God made medicine. Your thoughts?
  10. When I hear about alternative morality, modern times, etc. behavior at home vs. in church, I wonder just what the standard is? Being inside, outside or within 500 feet of a church makes no difference. I've given up on what others deem to be some sort of moral compass. That all ended when my wife was stricken with Alzheimer's Disease. I had to choose a path that some may frown upon but, I'm happy with my choice and as a result, my wife is thriving despite her advanced stage.
  11. Agreed! I'm also afraid, if they run low on crickets, they might substitute La Cucaracha!
  12. If it's cocaine, that's horrible and he needs help. Just wondered why you didn't just say it.
