Friends,
It is written here,[...I..do not believe that ANY God would have a problem with people taking medicine for an illness...]
The statement is inclusive to the God of the Jews because of the use of the word,{ANY}.
Now that is what the poster believes as the post states. But I ask you to ask yourselves, in relation to if the God in question is the God that the Jews give service and worship to,
A. What is a medicine?
B. What is an illness?
C. Are mind-altering drugs medicines?
D. Is there explicit warnings given in the scriptures that the Jews and Christians use that taking mind-altering drugs could cause death and result in the user of them or the people that make them or supply them to be cast into the Lake of Fire?
