    I agree. The legislation is a direct reflection of the people. It always has been. Sin takes its course and becomes more and more acceptable thus ushering in more sin. God The Father places every leader in their place. God does not do evil that good may come. Before the flood every imagination of man’s heart was sinful as I understand it. They used to say that America was around 20 years behind the liberalization of Europe. That along with a similar lag time behind California’s liberalization. Regardless of all of that, as sin increases, so does lawlessness. America has been rewarding the wrong people for too long. God Will always Win. Remember what Christ said in John 16 and also from James. Most are unaware of these verses. Of course the enemy trembles at the power of God The Father. Why would God ever reveal more of His power than necessary to do His work. When the rebellion happened, the fallen got a taste of God’s infinite power.

    Jas.2
    1. [19] Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
    John.16

    1. [11] Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

    Sin is not based on what man says, period.

    if it’s a sin for you, it’s a sin for me. It’s either a sin or not. Romans 13:1-3 doesn’t help address the issue of hypocritical laws in the USA.

    Well scripture tells us that Jesus made wine and that He drank it. It also tells us not to be drunkards. So by this we can conclude that it is acceptable to drink wine in moderation.

    So your saying we don’t need to be in subjection to the governing authorities? That’s not what Paul wrote my friend.

    You cant use marijuana without getting high and altering your state of consciousness. Unlike moderate alcohol consumption.

    Where is altering your state of consciousness forbidden in the Bible? When Jesus made wine from water at the wedding at Cana did people get drunk?

    Altering your state of consciousness is pharmakia/witchcraft.

    Is this based on any objective studies, or is this just your opinion?

    I mean, if someone wants to smoke weed more power to you. Im not condemning you. It doesn't bother me. But I have to tell it like it is. We are called to be soberminded.

    So, this also then must apply to Sugar, Caffine, Nicotine, Roller Coasters, Movies, Video games, VR, Skiing, Distance Running, Sprinting, Driving fast, spinning in circles with your forehead on a baseball bat then trying to walk a straight line.....all of these are then Witchcraft, yes?

    Where does Scripture say Jesus drank wine? I recall that the Pharisees, Jesus's enemies, called him a "winebibber," but I don't think their accusation ought to be taken seriously. Apart from the slander of the Pharisees, I can't think of any place that says explicitly that Jesus drank wine.

    Yes. Drunkenness is forbidden in Scripture. And, yes, drinking wine without getting drunk seems to be permissible. But, then, isn't the simplest, best way to avoid getting drunk just never to drink alcohol? Yes. Why run a risk of drunkenness, however slight, when it is utterly unnecessary to do so?

    Why is it only alcohol that the Bible expressly addresses in its various prohibitions of evil things and not other foodstuffs such as sugar, or fried foods, or coffee? Because the power of alcohol to cause harm and its common association with - and facilitation of - wickedness far exceeds anything a bucket of fried chicken, or a chocolate cake, or a venti latte from Starbucks could produce.

    Proverbs 20:1
    1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

    It was the very last thing Jesus did before dying on the cross:

    JOHN 19:28-30 28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” 29 Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. 30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He delivered up His spirit.
