The Street Drug Marijuana Is Not As Safe As You May Think!

Marijuana does great damagePlease contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.

Marijuana may seem like a harmless substance to experiment with, but do not be fooled for a moment, Satan uses it to lead many to deeper waters. It is important to understand that marijuana can ultimately lead you down a dangerous path towards harder drugs and a life that you do not want. While it might have seemed exciting and fun at first, once I got more heavily into it, my life took a significant turn for the worse.
Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC – the main active ingredient in cannabis – is undeniably a gateway drug that can open doors to much more serious substances. As one of the oldest hallucinogenic drugs known, it’s no surprise that using marijuana can increase your chances of experimenting with other mind-altering drugs as well. So don’t let yourself be lured by the initial thrill; instead choose safety and health over temporary pleasures and avoid marijuana altogether! ~ Bill Greguska


Philippians 4:7  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Should Christians Smoke Marijuana?


Do Not Be Fooled. Marijuana Is Not Safe!

Marijuana may seem enticing at first, but it’s important to not be fooled for a moment because it is without a doubt a gateway drug. While marijuana can initially appear exciting and fun, in reality, it can cause significant damage to one’s life when used more heavily. The main active ingredient of cannabis that gets people high, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is indeed a gateway drug leading individuals like myself down the path towards harder drugs. It is essential to understand that THC is an old hallucinogenic drug with significant effects on the brain and body. Therefore, we should encourage caution when considering using marijuana as its use could lead to severe harm in ways you never thought possible.

Marijuana and beer (drugs and drinking problems) at first were exciting and captured my attention. Still, after a short while, I could see that I was not only doing something I knew was wrong, but I had to start lying to others, like my parents, to cover my tracks, and the integrity that I did had begun to leave me. The devil was getting the better of me, and things seemed to snowball over time for the worst!
Matthew 26:41 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.
Is the cost of being considered one of the guys worth it? I partied like I played basketball—with all my heart. I tried to outdo others. Seeking recognition and attention are unyielding motivators in my life. With my natural personality, I created a monster getting increasingly out of control when I added drinking and drugs to it. I added drinking and drugs to it. I created a monster getting increasingly out of control. There were many times that I would drink as much as I could to be one of the guys and belong (belong to what, and for what reason, I do not know?).


Low Self-Esteem

People who make radical choices are not necessarily “bad” people. Instead, they most likely, if they are anything like me, are people with low self-esteem, have a strong desire for attention, or possibly do not care what others think and love to be different.
My basketball testimony went from one extreme to another, but thankfully the Lord kept me near to him, and in time, my life was redeemed from the locusts that ate it away. I praise God for his love and faithfulness in my life!


Is Marijuana Ever Okay For Christians?

Drinking And Drug Problem?

I look back at people with low self-esteem and my drinking problem! I might have had some so-called fun, but looking back, it was not worth it to me to get involved with drugs and alcohol as I did. Kids nowadays cannot see past the present to understand what they are heading into when they choose to become one of the guys.

Proverbs 23:31 Do not gaze at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup when it goes down smoothly. Ultimately it bites like a snake and poisons like a viper! How important is it to guard our eyes to what we watch and our ears to what we hear?

I liked the taste and feeling I used to get from marijuana, I could smoke it all day if I had the chance, and many days I did just that.



What Does The Bible Say About Recreational Marijuana Use?


I was into myself and trying to find ways to make myself feel good—I thought it would make me happy. So far, I even got a marijuana leaf tattoo (and twenty other tattoos) on my left arm to be radically different and gain attention. I was young and foolish and did not want to be told that I could not do what I wanted.
When I worked at Faith Indeed, thank God, my boss offered to remove my tattoos for free. I priced them before that time, and I found out they cost $400 per operation, and it turned out that I had 13 surgeries. My boss Bill was very good and generous to me; it was a blessing from God!
I just wanted to fit in and be accepted, and marijuana and alcohol were the common denominators that were my so-called “ticket in.” Looking back at the foolishness I put myself and my family through. It sure was a waste of time and life.
