This blog enters into an area I have no business in: God.
David Kupelian recently wrote an excellent piece reminding America that 70 million people are using mind altering drugs and another 60 million are reportedly regular alcohol users http://www.wnd.com/2014/02/70-million-americans-taking-mind-altering-drugs/
The statistics indicate that America is continually growing in its thirst for mind altering substances. The marketers and distributors of every category of blissful promises have affected millions of individuals and families with little negative publicity. Supply (marketing) and demand is working perfectly in American communities.
Drug and alcohol use increases as the purveyors of the products bring legitimacy to substances that alter the human mind and condition. For the legal drugs, the auspices of “science” is used.
Recently, Washington State issued the first license to legally sell marijuana. Another 333 licenses are waiting in the wings via a lottery process. http://news.yahoo.com/washington-issues-first-legal-pot-business-license-192603209.html
There was jubilation with the issuance of the new marijuana license with no mention of the already 130 million people who are already under the wings of mind altering legal substances.
It appears our country hasn’t reached the peak of consumption for the altering of perception.
The news channels lament the economic conditions of millions of Americans while the politicians remain puppets to those who profit from the “stupefying of America”.
Within David Kupelian’s article, a brilliant paragraph:
“The desire for drug profits – combined with the profound blindness that results from a de facto atheistic orientation for healing human minds and souls – have taken our nation to a bad place. When our “healers” do not understand human nature, when morality and sin don’t even enter into our thinking about how our mental-emotional problems originate and are fed, when we completely ignore the reality of God’s laws (which reliably results in falling into the grip of dark forces), we compensate by creating our own quasi-”religious” beliefs and “priests” (experts), with their own peculiar “sacraments” and “salvation.” All of which leads us, individually and as a nation, ever more into darkness, rather than into the light.”
In summary from the radio show:
The intellectual and progressive thinkers who believe in science, logic and free choice follow the dictates of messages that are self indulgent and are lacking in self constraint. For the “enlightened elite”, religion is illogical and only to be defended and supported in a prison environment. https://www.aclu.org/files/assets/know_your_rights_–__religion_november_2012_0.pdf
The elitists and intellectuals are the last to understand the stupefying of America. Those who believe in God understand.
