Per Fidem Intrepidus means "Fearless Through Faith". My courage isn't my own, it comes from the Holy Spirit, it's my faith in God and my personal savior Christ Jesus that calms my fears and allows me to move forward in this fallen world. Personally I'm afraid of a lot of stuff, but having the faith that Jesus adopted me as his little, sin filled, brother keeps me going.

WWUTT Wednesday - God Is Not "Dude"

I'm currently on a business trip which explains the limited number of posts I've made so far this year (a total of none) but this popped up in my inbox and I had to post. I've written about Christianity and marijuana before and haven't really touched the subject since. When I hurt my back I actually tried medicinal marijuana three times, a topical ointment, and it did nothing for me or to me. 

I personally believe that it was God who did that for me, for if it had relieved some of the pain that I have been in I may still be using it. I know people who use it "for pain" and are stumbling through life now in a permanent stupor; smoking, consuming edibles, and wearing patches like those Nicorette patches. Had God allowed the Marijuana to ease my discomfort I may have ended up like one of those unfortunate souls (I come from a family of alcoholics so substance addiction is a family trait) instead of trusting God to find a medical specialist who actually could fix me (which He did marvelously).

I'm told over and over about the medical wonders of Marijuana, however I don't have epilepsy or terminal cancer so those wonders are lost on me, I'm just fine with my Tylenol PM thank you. And the argument that "It's natural" is a no brainer too - anthrax is natural, would you like me to find you a patch for that, or would you prefer a brownie?

    1. Sorry dude, but "unknown" isn't really an identity and your comment was meaningless to this post.
