2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
I think the American people and our churches have been quiet for way too long as we sit here and watch Obama and all the government take the United States down to the pit. I can not believe we sit and not say a word as state after state legalizes marijuana. Yep, we have alcohol which has probably killed more people and ripped more families apart than anything else so why are we allowing our government to add a illegal drug to a problem that already exists? Will this make it easier for a takeover when you’re dealing with a bunch of stoned zombies that can’t fight back? Sounds kind of like Russia back in the old days when they paid people with vodka and bread for a days work doesn’t it? How long will it be before the little pot shops start getting rubbed out by the drug cartels?
Then we will have government-backed gangs running the shops. Washington state says they will gain 1.9 billion in additional revenue from the sales. All this because we have a president that has taken us down this road, according to him it’s the same as alcohol or cigarettes. But, hey, he just told the French president the other day “that’s what is good about being president, I can do whatever I want to do.” Must be true because he has made a shambles out of the constitution, he has made at least a dozen major adjustments to Obamacare without the approval of congress. Now he’s allowing banks to finance and do business with pot growers.
This man should have been impeached a long time ago. We have young kids and grandkids who without some kind of change will not have very bright futures. I urge you all to look at what is going on in this country, if we do no more than earnestly pray I do believe a change will come. It says so in the word of God and that I do believe.
