Is smoking marijuana against God's will? Some people say it's a natural herb created by God therefore they find nothing wrong about smoking marijuana.

Marijuana is not mentioned in the Bible. However, smoking cannabis is considered intoxicating, just as wine is intoxicating. Therefore, the scriptural cautions about drinking wine would also apply to using marijuana. “Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat,” Proverbs 23:20. “Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead be filled […]

About the Virgin Mary why do you say she has kids while the Bible clearly states otherwise? Ezekiel 44:2, "Then said the LORD unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the LORD, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut."

Ezekiel 40-43 record Ezekiel's vision of God's temple. Ezekiel 43:10 specifically states, "Son of man, describe the temple to the people of Israel." These chapters furnish the dimensions of the walls, the gates, the chambers, the courts, the steps, the furniture, the hooks, the doorposts, the sanctuary, etc. If the gate of the temple is […]
