"Gateway" drugs

10/10/2015

Marijuana is known as a “gateway” drug. That is, it is a pathway into more and more “dangerous” and “illegal” substances and people.

Marijuana is said to lower a person’s willingness to resist drugs and other destructive and dark and potentially fatal situations, as well as dulling or shifting their conscience related to right versus wrong, good relationships versus bad relationships, and willpower - versus a spiral of death and despair and aloneness that they did not see coming and would not have chosen.

Is it really all that difficult to admit, for any honest and true-hearted, sensitive, real disciple and lover of Jesus,

THAT
TELEVISION wrongly used
and
INTERNET carelessly used
and
SECRETS
and
unHoly CURIOSITY
and
VICES AND CHOICES
for false “liberty” or false “pleasure”....
unGoverned, unContested, unConfessed

ARE
GATEWAY
DRUGS!

That is, they are easily a potential pathway into more and more “dangerous” and “illegal” substances and people.

They lower a person’s willingness to resist deeper sin and destructive and dark and potentially fatal situations, as well as dulling or shifting one’s conscience related to right versus wrong, human self-will versus God’s will for a doulos/slave/disciple, good relationships versus bad relationships, and willpower - versus a spiral of death and despair and aloneness that they did not see coming and would not have chosen.

Can we make these things Right for Him and for others? Please? The LOSS is so extreme if we do not. :(

The Joy and Reward are infinitely extreme if we will Trust Him in this and willfully “DENY OUR VERY SELVES” as Jesus called to “anyone who would come after Me.” :)
