Legalization of Booze and Narcotics is Dangerous to Society

There's the huge lie that says prohibition of liquor and narcotics will only make the problem worse and that legalizing them is what stops them. Their argument is built on a faulty standpoint where they say that if you prohibit these substances then the prices will go up which will encourage more drug dealers to enter into them. These "experts" also claim that if you legalize liquor and narcotics then prices will drop because supply will be up. They say that the moment you do so nobody wants to enter into drugs because the prices will be so low it discourages profit. Legalization of narcotics and hard liquor will encourage them because nobody would want to sell them if there were laws that could lock people up involved in their trade. If the prices are lower because of a high supply of drugs and hard liquor then the more these people involved in the industry profit from them because more people will buy them at a rapid rate. If the prices of drugs and hard liquor were so high only a few people will buy them.

Let's go back to the example of Adam and Eve's situation in the garden. Remember what the serpent told Eve in the Garden? That would be an illustration to why legalizing narcotics and hard liquor trade would be compared to this situation:
Genesis 3:1-5 
Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Satan under the guise of the serpent first questioned God's authority. It's like how those who want to legalize drugs want to use their argument. It's through the subtle deception that they may want to tell people that whether or not their governments disallow drugs. They can start using dishonest data to defend their stand. In the world of research there will always be dishonest people who manipulate data in such a way you'd be misled or placed in doubt. It's very easy to abuse the phrase "study shows" but such people are citing one faulty study after the other to justify their claims. Satan already used the term "Scriptures say" when he tempted Jesus. It's also very easy to lie about research data just to propagate a lie and that's what politically correctness is doing. These people will tell them that drugs should be legalized and that they have "proof" that legalizing narcotics and booze will lessen the problem when in fact it will make the problem even worse. They may even say that banning narcotics and liquor is equivalent to banning air, water and fire because of the harm it caused. The problem that's ignored is that narcotics and liquor are not even necessities and nothing beneficial ever comes out from them or any proper use of them compared to proper use of air, water and fire.

If prohibition doesn't work then why does God give a lot of don't do this and don't do that for people to follow? It's because of sin and its consequences. If there was no sin then there would be no need of prohibition against sin. You can't separate sin from its consequences. Here's what the Bible says about how sinful humanity stands up against God's Law and why the Law was a necessity:
Romans 3:19 
Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
Galatians 3:23-25 
But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
1 Timothy 1:9-11
Knowing this, that the Law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, for whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

God also promises a blessing to those who adhere to His standards of prohibition:
Deuteronomy 4:40 
Thou shalt keep therefore His statutes, and His commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.

God clearly made His standards of prohibition to protect the people. He made rules against crimes to protect the people. Would you want to live in a society where you become a victim of crime and you can't do a thing about it because crime has been legalized or would you want to live in a society where you become a victim of crime but you have every right to press charges because crime is not legal? What is legal is not necessarily ethical. If we allow drugs and liquor to be legalized then expect the negative effects of drug and liquor to increase not to decrease. God fights sin by prohibiting sin not by allowing it. If God were to allow sin then He isn't a holy and righteous God. If sin were prohibited and were punished according to severity then there will be less offenses. Who would want to do wrong if the punishments were clear?
Ecclesiastes 8:11 
Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

The point is that sin is becoming more rampant because certain sins are now made more legal through manmade laws. Before it was illegal to have booze but now it's legalized. Before it was illegal for underaged people not to have curfews but now it's legalized. Before it was illegal to commit adultery but divorce laws have legalized adultery to a certain extent. Before it was illegal to register same sex couples as a married couple but now certain countries have given the blessings of the government. With sin getting more and more legalized isn't it any wonder why the world is getting worse and worse? It's stupid to want a license to sin and yet you complain about its consequences. It's because sin will always be sin and the consequences will always be the same. Satan knows his time is almost up and he will do anything to convince people to reject Jesus Christ as one's personal Lord and Savior and one of his methods is through the legalization of sinful activities.

Even so come Lord Jesus!

It's Not Okay to Be Blindly Loyal to the Pope and His Army of Pharisees

Some rabid Roman Catholics keep sensationalizing the sins of fraud pastors (as if true born again Christians ever support them) while they keep hiding the sins of their priests or Pharisees. They also say that born again Christians are blindly loyal to the pastor never mind that they are blindly loyal to the Pope and his Pharisees. Blind loyalty towards a a prosperity gospel pastor, a so-called successor of a so-called last messenger or any quack preacher is no different than blind loyalty towards the Pope and his Pharisees. Worse, Roman Catholics believe that their Pharisees are instruments in saving their souls or that the Pope supposedly holds salvation in his hands never mind all the priestly scandals are telling them otherwise.

I could remember how often Bible reading is discouraged (and yet some of these rabid Roman Catholics tell me I should read the Bible and I can't get wrong with it) because it could drive me crazy from reading it. Some Roman Catholics I've met &quo…

The Error of Comparing Protestantism to New Atheism

The amazing blindness of Catholic.com is too amazing isn't it? I just read an article written yesterday which compares Protestantism to New Atheism. As much as the article is written as professionally as possible in contrast to some self-proclaimed apologists I've had a lot of useless arguments with but I'd like to give a friendly rebuke to the writer Karlo Broussard. It's my sincere prayer that Broussard will see the truth from the pages of the Scripture. 
The writer commits the fallacy of categorical error. He compares Sola Scriptura with Richard Dawkins' views on science. Here's one of the statements that really should be considered a categorical error:
Just as science is the only tool Dawkins and company are willing to use to arrive at knowledge of the natural truth, Protestants use only the Bible for determining what is revealed truth. And as many modern atheists reject anything that science cannot detect, so too do Protestants reject any teaching that is…

Don't Even Think About Legalizing Prostitution or Sex Trade

There's some people who seek to legalize prostitution. Some "rational" atheists are already talking about prostitution should be legalized so it could be controlled by the government. The claim that "studies" show that prohibition doesn't work is a lie straight from the pits of Hell. The Israelites were doing sin not because God forbade it but because they were disobedient and the rulers did nothing to prevent those sins. It's not surprising is that the same people who seek to legalize prostitution also want to legalize narcotics and hard liquor all in the name of "succeeding in the war against them".

The logic behind legalizing prostitution is that so the government can control them and tax them. But the problem with the quest to legalize prostitution is that it encourages the sin rather than discourage it. The problem is not the war against prostitution but ignoring Ecclesiastes 8:11. Do you know why the war against prostitution isn't wo…

The Quest For "Unlimited Human Progress" is Really Destroying the Environment

Every time I read from the news of nature's decline due to pollution, how food supply can soon drop anytime, how plant and animal deaths are massively happening I can't help but blame it on one factor: SIN. Yes, sin and most people think it's a fantasy word. It wasn't just a fantasy word that kicked Adam and Eve out of Eden and cursed the Earth with all its imperfections. Sin brought disease and destruction to mankind. Unfortunately, man is to blame for the wanton destruction of the environment all in the name of "unlimited human progress".

You can't divorce science from the Creator and that's a fact. Yet you have people who want to benefit from science without considering the Creator. Christian scientists were conservative because they were aware of one truth that science without ethics is meaningless. I'd like to expand it to say that studying creation without the Creator is absolutely stupid. People can claim that removing God is the key to &qu…

Politically Correct Organizations Need to Take the Beam Out of Their Own Eye First

Politically correct organizations meddling in worldwide affairs is not anything new. Whether it's the Vatican, the European Union, the United Nations, Human Rights Watch and any organization driven by political correctness (and not all of them are Illuminati or Jesuit ran but they're all still dupes of Satan and most of them don't even know it) it's always a problem that they are indeed meddling. While meddling isn't inherently wrong but here's some problems with politically correct organizations:
They only meddle when it's convenient for them as they are guilty of both selective outrage and selective justice.They meddle in the affairs of others without considering their own yard first.They meddle like as if they own the world.
It's stupid how political correctness demands Christians not to judge others but they end up failing to judge themselves. They are always taking "Judge not and you will not be judged." out of context without knowing wha…

What Does Pisseth Against the Wall Mean?

It's really getting bad for some of my Independent Fundamental Baptist brethren to actually even take the words "pisseth against the wall" which appears at least six times in 1 Samuel 23:22, 1 Samuel 25:34, 1 Kings 14:10, 1 Kings 16:11, 1 Kings 21:21 and 2 Kings 9:8 where the King James actually has the words "pisseth against the wall".  Now I am a King James only-ist but I do not support the stupid interpretation of "pisseth against the wall" by some IFB preachers who have become in some way similar to the Catholic Faith Defenders that they argue against when they should spend their time soulwinning.  Actually I even heard that rather outrageous "pisseth against the wall" sermon by Steven Anderson that was so taken out of context.
So what does pisseth against the wall mean? Let us take a look at these six verses and take it on a exegetic view NOT an eisegetic (out of context) view:
1 Samuel 23:22- "And so more also do God unto the ene…

Why This Ministry DOES NOT Support the Westboro Baptist Church

The Westboro Baptist Church is a so-called Baptist institution founded by Fred Phelps who is a lawyer and a theologian. Is it your average Baptist assembly or is this another of Satan's brain children? I would like to present my stand why this ministry does not support the Westboro Baptist Church and why as a Baptist, I do not support them either:
The founder Fred Phelps who serves as its pastor. I do find it disturbing he says that he supports sound doctrine of good Christian preachers of the past like John Calvin and Charles Haddon Spurgeon but his doctrine is not sound at all. His preaching is definitely not balanced. While I do appreciate him attacking the Great Whore of Revelation, apostasy, ecumenism, homosexuality, abortion, pornography and a lot of sins however he is no better than the Roman Catholic institution which he frequently criticizes. Although he claims to be a Calvinist and a Spurgeon fan, however many of those who are Calvinist preachers like Paul Washer, John …
