> Friends,
> I asked the Word of God what an alterative would be to taking mood or mind-altering drugs. He answered, "If you be in tribulation, seek God with all your heart and you will find Him. And be obediant to His voice and He will not forsake you. For each day you have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: thearfore choose life, for God is life."

hi Lou...the amount of energy you display here is simply amazing...I expect that if you help only one person through your writings then none of your energy will have been wasted, but this is only my opinion...I'd love to hear more of these "blessings and cursings" of which you speak...I find it very hard to imagine a God who makes use of "curses"..."cursing" seems to be more the activity of men than a mechanism of Omnipotence...what purpose, praytell, would a curse serve the unlimited power and authority of Omnipotence? would seem that unlimited power and authority would require nothing, no need of "curses" or the threat of curses...I understand that the scriptures make many references to curses and to our place in servitude...I also understand that the scriptures bear witness to the concept of a "great deception" which, ultimately, could be our own doing if we are wreckless enough to restrict the Word of God to one book at any given time... for your instructions from "The Rider" pertaining to the use of "...drugs.", Paul in his first letter to Timothy said--"For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving; for then it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer."...this seems an appropriate perspective on this day of Thanksgiving or, for that matter, any other day that we find ourselves blessed with the availability of both modern and ancient pharmacueticals...only the faith of a mustard seed is required to see that many-a-prayer have gone into the development of these medicines, whether one perceives a mood or mind altering effect in them or not...this same amount of faith assures me that none of US could lift a finger were it not God's will.
