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!

Ken Ham's Illustrations on Spiritual Warfare Against Humanism

Dr. Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis made these beautiful illustrations to show what's wrong with the church today. Let's take a look at the two illustrations on how Christians engage their spiritual warfare. 
The first illustration reveals the following:
One member is asleep when he should be doing something.Another person is firing at the balloons because the person who's supposed to fire it is asleep on the job.Somebody is focused on deflecting cannon balls than hitting the source of the cannon balls.Somebody is treating the whole situation like a game.  
By doing so, humanism is victorious whenever the local church is asleep. This is the problem to why Christians tend to fall down in battle at times:
Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
In short, if you're not going to stand in the gap on behalf of the land then who will? It's the…

The Ridiculous Roman Catholic View That Marriage Must Be Done Inside Their Church or It's Invalid

I remembered reading through the seven sacraments or ordinances of the Roman Catholic institution in a catechism. One of the teachings is that marriage must be treated as a sacrament. What it also implies is that if your marriage is done in a civil court that even if it was duly registered, that both couples were in a sexually pure union then it's not a marriage. So does that mean that a person can marry in a civil court, get divorced and marry his next spouse in the Roman Catholic institution?

Let's address the issue of civil marriage that is pure and holy. In short there was no incest, no adultery and it was between two people who are eligible for marriage. So why should the Roman Catholic institution even think that two people who got married with the sexually pure prerequisites in the eyes of God should be rejected. Is it because unless it's a priest who performs the marriage then the marriage can't be validated? It's a problem with how Roman Catholics have thei…

No Moral Absolutes Means No Human Rights

We have the truth that human rights activists are everywhere who reject the truth that there are moral absolutes. Many of them have their idea of "Judge not and you will not be judged." As for the atheistic human activists, they tend to carry out Richard Dawkins' quote from the River Out of Eden which says that there's no good, no evil but only pitiless indifference. They think that there are no such thing as moral absolutes. So if they believe that there are no moral absolutes then why are they fighting for human rights which requires moral absolutes to determine them? After all, Dawkins just said there is no purpose but only pitiless indifference.

Here's another problem with atheists' appeal to human rights. Why do they appeal to human rights when they claim that there are no moral absolutes and morality is relative? Human rights are determined by moral absolutes that God made. When God made His Ten Commandments and gave the whole Law - He made it as the st…

James 2 DOES NOT Teach Works Salvation

In a hasty attempt to defend works salvation, they would appeal to James 2.  It would be time to actually clear the fact that Paul and James DO NOT contradict each other. James 2 DOES NOT teach works salvation in which now can be clearly seen when this whole chapter is being dissected to show that James 2 does not defend the heretic crowd.  So let's try to check out what James 2 really is saying.
So first, it's time to think about these facts to debunk the heretical argument of using James 2:
1.) James 2:14-18 is not talking about works salvation but rather, again showing one's faith by one's works.  James 2:18 is a challenge to show one's faith.  Want to know about faith?  Hebrews 11 talks about the results of faith with some of the heroes of the Bible.  Try to coincide Hebrews 11 and James 2 and one sees the results of faith.  As said, when one says that a faith without works is DEAD because true faith produces good works to validate faith.  That's really th…

Does Salvation by Grace Through Faith in Jesus Christ Grant a License to Sin?

Here's a commonly heard argument saying, "Well salvation by faith alone in Jesus Christ is unjust and grants a license to sin." which is frequently done by most world religions.  They demand people must work for their salvation and for one, it's NOT even realistic or practical as it promotes the idea of a dictator God PLUS it's nothing more than asking for the impossible because God's standard of holiness is a LOT higher than all the good works man does.  Despite all the good man does, still they will fall into sin and the followers of almost every false religion this world has to offer shows that like how your average religious person attends religious services yet he/she falls into sin for the rest of the week, showing he/she is WEAK in the flesh.
Now it's time to really correct the whole erroneous argument as false.  Why?  The Bible says otherwise about what God's salvation by grace through faith really does- it transforms the individual to resist…

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…

What's Wrong with the Ang Dating Daan Movement?

The Ang Dating Daan movement is by the Members Church of God International spearheaded by its pastor (and so-called "prophet") Eliseo Soriano.  While claiming to be an expositor of the Scriptures with his "Itanong Mo Kay Soriano" or "Ask Soriano" In English, this religious group actually isn't Christian as some of the ignorant would want to believe.  Though the group claims the Bible is their only authority (as some cults do) but the problem is that they believe only Eli Soriano may interpret the Scriptures.  This is utter heresy!  Not even a great man in the Scriptures, Charles Spurgeon ever made such a preposterous claim!  This is no better than the "true church" movement by Darwin Fish which is exposed by Pastor Phil Johnson as a heretical movement.  In fact, I'm not going to waste my time debating with ADD members, they are a total waste of my time as every other debate.
Unlike John F. Macarthur of Grace to You that actually encoura…
