If it is Legal, is it Okay?

Distorted Reality

Distorted Reality

Location: Marihuana dispensary sign reflected in the window of Barton Family Funeral Service on 140th Street N and Aurora

Slide Notes (Marcel and Phil):

  • Marijuana dispensaries are everywhere; just looking for these I found 11 of them along the few miles of Aurora Ave that I covered.
  • Regardless if it’s legal or not, marijuana is a drug. Drugs distort our view of reality. Misuse of drugs does not solve problems; drugs can bury them and add to them.
  • Just because pot, politics, and poker (and a host of other things you find on Aurora Ave) are divisive issues, as Christians we need to make sure to not reject those who have a different attitude toward such items. Some issues have clear biblical principles; others require deeper study and reflection, including research and statistics.
  • As with so many issues, we tend to reject those we do not agree with. But Luke said: “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.” Luke6:37 (NIV)
