Does Pat Robertson Want to Legalize; Marijuana, Chronic, Weed, Mary Jane, Blunts, Dank, or Bud?

Does Pat Robertson Want to Legalize; Marijuana, Chronic, Weed, Mary Jane, Dank, Blunts, or Bud?  It sure sounds like it in this bizarre video.  Below is a quote from Pat Robertson in this video where it appears he wants to legalize Marijuana: 

"...We're locking up people that take a couple of puffs of marijuana and the next thing you know they've got 10 years - they've got mandatory sentences and these judges, they throw up their hand and say 'There's nothing that we can we do, it's mandatory sentences.'  We've got to take a look at what we're considering crimes, and that's one of 'em.  I mean, I'm not exactly for the use of drugs, don't get me wrong.  But I just believe that criminalizing marijuana, criminalizing the possession of just a few ounces of pot, and that kind of thing, I mean it's costing us a fortune, and it's ruining young people.  The young people go into prisons, they go in as youths, and they come out as hardened criminals, and it's not a good thing."

Let me first state that I am a Born Again Christian and Pat Robertson does not, nor has he ever spoken for me.  Pat Robertson is not my spokesman, leader, or anybody that I aspire to be.  Pat Robertson speaks favorably of the Word Faith false gospel.  Pat Robertson has given a false prophecy and therefore I believe he is a false prophet.

In all honesty I didn't know that Pat Robertson was still alive until I heard this quote today.  This controversial statement seems like a great way to get back into the conversation.  It worked in my case, how many millions of other people will start talking about Pat Robertson again because of this bizarre statement?  I don't know why he made this statement but it sure has millions of people paying attention to him again.

Do I believe we should legalize Marijuana?  No, I do not.  In the near future we probably will though.  Why?  Because, it is a great way for the government to pacify a great number of us as they continue to take away our freedoms.  Similar to the Roman Empire, give the people games and free bread to distract them from what you are really doing to them. 

As long as Americans have; cable or satellite television, drugs, alcohol, and free food and health care the government will be free to make us slaves in their Marxist utopia without so much as a peep from the inebriated masses.

Morally, America is heading the way of Rome and God's judgment is coming to our shores just as it did to the Roman Empire.  How many babies are murdered everyday in America via abortion

Sin runs rampant in our country while the far left liberal Main Stream Media, newspapers, magazines, and every other anti-God institution that tries to remove anything decent from our society and promote every form of debauchery.

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
Isaiah 5:20

Why am I against the recreational use of Marijuana?  Because it is similar to being drunk in that it numbs your senses.  Marijuana clouds your mind and either makes you sleep, or sit in a stupor tripping off of music, movies, or rambling conversations of other foolish pot-heads. 

Marijuana also turns its users into gluttons as they uncontrollably consume vast amounts of food until their stomach aches from being over stuffed. 

Being a Glutton is a sin:

"For the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty, And drowsiness will clothe a man with rags,"
Proverbs 23:21

"And they shall say to the elders of his city, ‘This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious; he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard,"
Deuteronomy 21:20

"For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things,"
Philippians 3:18-19.

Marijuana clouds the mind and this is against scripture.  We as Christians are commanded to be sober:

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour,"
1 Peter 5:8

"Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.  For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.  But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation,"
1 Thessalonians 5:6-8

I am not against people being prescribed Marijuana (Medical Marijuana) by legitimate doctors for verified illnesses.  If a cancer patient needs Marijuana to help them eat I am not against that.  Marijuana is probably less harmful to the body than prescribed narcotics used for pain.

Another thing I would like to comment about in Pat Robertson's statement is the following quote:

"The young people go into prisons, they go in as youths, and they come out as hardened criminals, and it's not a good thing."

This statement is patently false and Pat Robertson shouldn't speak about things he knows nothing about.  "Hardened Criminals" is not something a person becomes by going to prison as a youth.  Either a person is a killer or they are not, going to prison isn't going to change that fact.    

Most inmates who go to prison as a youth are victimized and used as sexual toys (Punks) by the Convicts.  If you want to use that argument go ahead, but please don't use the false statement that youths become "Hardened Criminals" when they go to prison.  That foolish argument is made by naive people who have never done any serious time in a State Prison.


Pat Robertson Quotes:

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson said Friday he believes God has told him President Bush will be re-elected in a "blowout" in November.

"I think George Bush is going to win in a walk," Robertson said on his 700 Club program on the Virginia Beach-based Christian Broadcasting Network, which he founded.  "I really believe I'm hearing from the Lord it's going to be like a blowout election in 2004.  It's shaping up that way.  And, "It doesn't make any difference what he does, good or bad.  God picks him up because he's a man of prayer and God's blessing him."
(Pat Robertson, 700 Club, Associated Press 2003)
Note: The popular vote was George Bush 51% and John Kerry 49%.  That is not a "blowout" by any stretch of the imagination.  It is now 8 am Wednesday morning of November 3, and we still do not have an official winner due to the close nature of this election.  This is a false prophecy according to scripture.

"There are many who think they are hearing from God when maybe they are not.  How annoying are the superspiritual who always say, "God told me this -- God told me that -- God told me this other."  It seems that their every thought is a revelation from God...
The Bible says that we can tell if someone is a prophet by seeing if what he has said comes to pass (see Deuteronomy 18:22).  That is a very pragmatic test, and it works.  A friend who purported to hear from God told me, "My second child is going to be a boy.  God told me."  His second child was a girl.  He said, "Well, God told me that it was not the second child who was going to be a boy, but the third child."  His third child was a girl, too.  At that point I determined, that brother isn't hearing from God.  It was clear: He made a statement, supposedly from God, that did not come to pass."
(Pat Robertson, "Pat's Perspective: Hearing God's Voice" 2005 CBN Website)
Note: I took Pat's advice concerning how to test a fasle prophet and his prophecy about George Bush winning the election "like a blowout" is a false prophecy in my opinion according to scripture.

Question: Some Christians give the impression that God has given us creative power with our words. Can we really speak something into existence?
Pat Robertson: "...Your confession is extremely important, and, indeed, your words do have creative power, if they are energized by the Holy Spirit....God's thoughts will be transmitted by the Holy Spirit to our spirits, and if we speak them forth, things will begin to take shape and change...In my experience, the way I've seen healing's take place has been to speak the word, to see creative miracles, to command storms to cease...When you exercise the authority of Jesus' name, and command evil spirits to be gone, they must obey. Taking authority over demons is a scripturally sound activity. It is not some hocus-pocus, mind over matter or some weird magic...Similarly, agreeing with God's Word, and speaking to our circumstances is not a "name it and claim it" game of "let's see what we can get from God." We are not talking about magic, formulas, tricks, or games; we are talking about the power of God having real results in our everyday lives according to clearly annunciated biblical teachings."

"Customarily, the flow of power comes from our minds through our mouths. We transfer power by the words we speak.  The Bible says, "From the produce of his lips he shall be filled" (Proverbs 18:20).  Few realize the power of the words we speak. We can kill with words, we can make alive with words, we can bring blessing with words, or we can bring a curse with words (James 3:10).  Our mouths are extremely important, because they can be the conduit for power from God--through the spirit, through the mind, and out to the world around us. If we realize the authority we have, it profoundly transforms the way we live.  Not understanding the power in the tongue, we say negative things like, "I feel terrible," which is almost a command for our bodies to hurt.  We say: "I think I'm going to die." "I am exhausted."  "I can't go another step."  "I'm broke now and I'm going to stay broke." "The devil has me on the run."  We make negative confessions constantly, thus assuring our failure...But suppose instead you say after the accident, "Oh, I can't stand the pain! It's the most horrible pain I've ever had! It will take a long time.  My leg may never be healed."  That negative confession admits defeat and directs the flow of spiritual power to ensure a long and painful convalescence."

"Yes.  These are not just Christian and Jewish principles, any more than the law of gravity is Christian and Jewish.  The laws of God work for anybody who will follow them.  The principles of the Kingdom apply to all of creation. And what the law of faith is all about is "If you believe you can have something--you'll get it!If you believe that you are going to get well--you'll get well.  If you believe that you are going to get money--you'll get money.  If you believe that you are going to get married--you'll get married, because you are enacting a law and it is an immutable, inviolable law that works for anybody, anytime.  It's impersonal, it's fixed."

"Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true."
Acts 17:11
"Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men.  For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.  For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.  Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.  Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears."
Acts 20:26-31
