At the rate computer technology is progressing, it won't take 2,000 years to track every person on earth, probably less than 100 years. Currently, there are technology that can see what people are seeing, the images are blurr but it is still in the infancy stage,...just imagine how the technology will be like in 100 years time. Soon we will be able to watch TV without the television set but in our brains and with our eyes closed.

Actually, it shows how religious dogmas make healthy normal people feel bad for simply being human. Now that I'm free from the dogma of sin, I don't experience any of the internal conflicts caused by false doctrines of "sin" being imposed upon me. And that's how I should have felt when I was a Christian if Christianity were true, because Christianity is supposed to set you free from the law. But judging by what you and other Christians write, I would have to say that you are still in bondage to the law of sin.
I am not from China but I do know that there are still some cases of opium smoking and pots. But the main problem now facing the Chinese is from cigarette smoking. If I am a terrorist, I will bomb all cigarettes companies, manufacturing plants and tobacco farms....And death sentence to those who sold cigarettes. Am I morally right to do so in order to save millions and millions of people in this world? Marijuana can be addictive same as nicotine.
You are confused. Opium is entirely different than Marijuana. It is addictive, marijuana is not. What's it like in China? Do many folks smoke pot?
Marijuana is evil:
Your implication that everyone who smokes pot is "hallucinating" is false and it shows that you know nothing of which you speak.
And why didn't you address any of the points I made? The prohibition of marijuana is not good for society. It makes criminals out of otherwise good citizens. It costs LOTS of money to chase down the "criminals" and prosecute them and put them in prison. And we lose money again because we have removed a productive tax-paying citizen from the work force. It's utterly absurd. We should have learned our lesson with the prohibition of alcohol. Would you support that? We tried it in the USA and discovered that it helped create organized crime. Is that what you want? Do you not understand that marijuana is not nearly as dangerous as alcohol? You should inform yourself on these issues.
Obviously, this guy is high:
Marijuana is not that innocent:
I am not against Hippies, only their negative influence...free sex, drug abuse, free religion, alcoholism, punk music.... better to spent their time doing more constructive things. So you admit you are a hippie?
And what's wrong with a "hippie mentality"? I think it's pretty cool. A lot more interesting than sitting around moaning and groaning about all the evil in the world and praying for God to forgive me for being human.
I am not talking about Christ but you and everybody. Let's be honest, were we ever been tempted and sin? I am not just talking about sexual sin but sin of all kinds...stealing, lying, fighting, greed etc. Who never sin?
There is no sin in temptation. Christ was tempted, but did not sin.
I think you are equally confused...what is love? God is love; you will never experience true love unless you experience the love of God in you. God is love which is why He told us to Love God with all your heart, soul and might and Love others as yourself. Do these things and you are not far from the kingdom of heaven.
Your assertion that no one is free from the law is confused because you are using "law" in two different senses. When I said I am free from the law, I was talking about the law that convicts of sin, not the law of love. I never will be, nor want to be, free from that law.
God is Love, Amen.
