On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (11/26/21), Hank discusses America’s continued downward spiral. Currently, a total of eighteen states approve the recreational use of marijuana. The number of adults using marijuana doubled in the span of three years despite research showing that it weakens heart muscles and causes detectable alterations in the chemistry of the brain. Marijuana is not as benign as many think. There are also spiritual dangers associated with it, and it is used in the worship and spirituality of many religions around the world. The truth is, when people smoke or eat pot, there is no objective way to control the dosages. While the Bible doesn’t specifically address marijuana, the injunction against intoxication still applies.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- In a liberal college atmosphere, what would be your advice for being honest about your faith without offending people?
- How is the use of marijuana different than alcohol or caffeine?
- I’m reading through the Bible and analyzing everything; what is your view on interpreting it literally or figuratively?
