The Bible quite possibly makes weed/alcohol morally just.

Genesis 1:29
Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food."
Did that just make the Bible ok with weed or any alcoholic drink made from plants? I mean it does say EVERY seed-bearing plant and fruit...

    The Bible never says to not drink, just not to be a drunkard. It never says to not smoke. It just says to put God first. Now, the easiest way to do this is not do them, but that's really your choice.

    True, I've always said this exact thing. It's just this is a good argumentative piece towards those die hard Christians that say it's all automatically evil.

    And don't get me wrong, I am a Christian. But a lot of stuff that is in the Bible are taken in ways that they shouldn't be used.

    Honestly why does it matter if the bible says if its good? Not that I have any problem with weed or alcohol but even Christians will admit that the bible isn't meant to be interpreted literally.

    Some Christians*

    Well, I don't think anyone is accusing the Bible of being consistent.
    - Ertrov August 3, 2012, 10:33 pm
    Rofl I just got really bored and found this on the net lol it's only fair if people are going to interpret the bible to do sufficient research lol but that's just my opinion.
    - Kodi93 August 3, 2012, 10:41 pm
    It was written by so many different people that were interpreting really old texts, so 100% consistency is kinda difficult lol
    - imfrikknbad August 3, 2012, 10:44 pm
    Especially since those texts were written by nomads in the less-civilized parts of the middle-east.
    - Ertrov August 3, 2012, 11:08 pm
    That is very true with the bible being written by 40 authors with very different educational and cultural backgrounds. And also, The Bible was written over a period of approximately 1500+ years ,covering some 60+ generations. And Many of the authors were separated by hundreds of miles geographically. I do not know for a fact that the bible is consistant on the topic of getting I'ma go have me another beer
    - Kodi93 August 3, 2012, 11:13 pm
    Yeah that's what I meant, just didn't want to type all that out lol.
    And I agree 100% ;)
