Cam raiD Something about this video hit me harder than most… I am mostly good and I hope humble, compared to many around me and my parents were fiercely atheistic but very good and strong too. I love weed. I have had such a good time of the ‘world’ so far, that passages like the ‘camel and the eye of the needle’ rest on my mind. I get troubled about christian dogmatism. I abstain from weed, and things seem to go generally worse, so I then resume and things go smoother and all round better.
Do you need to be stone sober to get to know God?.. It seems like most of my deepest learnings and steps have been under the influence of weed.
Da Bawse It’s the devil if u can’t stop doing weed it means it’s an addiction and addictions are sins
Disciple Robert weed is 100% of the devil. People say its just a plant…yeah, but so is opium and in fact ALL such drugs are from plant sources in some form or other and yes they do indeed destroy people’s lives and enable demonic powers to rule them. No animal products cause addiction. So being just a plant is not an excuse to believing it is harmless. Alcohol is also from plants. but it also causes destruction and opens you up to being influenced by the devil. It was one of the watchers, the sons of God who fell, who taught mankind the use of plants for drugs. The other, Azazel, taught mankind warfare. God was furious with these and had them bound in chains till the day of judgment. Weed will continue to open yourself up to destructive forces of demons in your life and keep you from knowing Christ and saving yourself in his name by abiding in him.

It’s important for people to know that *real, evil spirits* directly cause the addiction. When people understand this the process makes sense.
If a born-again Christian willfully lusts, real lust demons have a right to drive that lust in our bodies until we *fully* repent. *Complete* repentance is necessary to be free.
We can always fall away again:
Once we’re free, if we willfully lust again [giving into it instead of rejecting the temptation], demons will again come in and drive that lust. Lust never satisfies, and really is bondage, demonic control — not “freedom.”
We can’t play around with this thing. It removes the peace and joy from our lives, and keeps us from inheriting eternal life, because we walked according to the flesh, and not according to the Spirit. We allowed ourselves to become prodigal, and then have no right to inherit the kingdom of God until we repent. See especially: Gal. 5:19-6:8, Rom. 8:1-17 and Mt. 5:27-30 to be free!
3:10 “The crucial thing you have to understand here is something that St. Augustine said at the time of the fall of the Roman empire. He said ‘a man has as many masters as he has vices.’ … If you want to avoid masters, you have to avoid vices. At the time of the revolution, a man by the name of Marquis de Sade turned that upside down. What he saw was if you want to control people promote vice.
9:30 “The people who control the media don’t want you to move away from it [porn and masturbation].”
10:05 The Psychology Today article claiming porn is beneficial because it makes people more docile and accepting of homosexuality, etc. “I agree with what they said. That’s absolutely the point of pornography and masturbation. It makes you docile. It makes you isolated. And people who want to keep you docile and isolated promote it. … If you want to wreck people lives, this is one way to do it. It’s probably the simplest way, if you’re a male to wreck your life, to get you addicted to this. The simplest way for a female is to have an abortion. It turns out, hey, there’s one group promoting both of these things.”
14:19 “A figure like St. Thomas Aquinas would say ‘lust darkens the mind.’ … This is exactly why pornography is a weapon. I brought this out at the beginning of Libido Dominandi, describing the Israeli troupes coming into Ramallah. They come in, take over the TV station, and start broadcasting pornography. This is a conquering army taking over your culture, and they’re broadcasting pornography. Are they doing this because they want to liberate you? No, they’re doing it because it’s a weapon against the indigenous population to keep them docile, divided, preoccupied by their passions, isolated, and so on.”
35:45 “I think people are pagans now not because they believe that Thor actually exists. I don’t think that’s possible anymore. I think that the main problem is your behavior. You call yourself a pagan because you’re in rebellion against the Logos. And the Logos for 2,000 years has been identified with Jesus Christ. So you’ve decided you want to live a law according to principles that you cannot reconcile with moral behavior, and that’s why you’ve adopted this identity.
37:00 “Paganism is an excuse to indulge in these things that you know are wrong.”
Quote from the Psychology Today article referenced in this video. Notice the pejorative words the anti-Christian magazine uses to stigmatize those who are still moral, which I put in italics. Even their title is deceptive: “6 Ways to Develop Sexual Integrity.”
An interesting effect happens as people watch pornography. They … become more accepting of sexual diversity and less stigmatizing towards homosexuality. They become less religious, and may even experience more crises of faith. Enjoying porn leads to people changing their beliefs about sex and gender, and, in some cases, rejecting the dogmatically rigid sex/gender values they were taught in church.
It starts with lust, which Jesus calls heart-adultery, which he said we must overcome at all costs. Matthew 5:27-30:
“You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY’; but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. “If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. “If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell.
Even short, tight frontal hugs are sexual. I’ve seen pastors in Anchorage do full frontal, lingering hugs in front of everyone! Their wives and/or daughters wear low-cut tops, and post the photos on Facebook! Most pastors are biblically disqualified for many reasons, and need to repent so real Christianity will happen “that the world will know” (Jesus’ prayer and promise in John 17):
My transcriptions of E. Michael Jones’ words in this audio interview, below:
3:25 “During the 1920s, when Hollywood films became more and more a part of our culture, everyone was upset at the sexualization of the culture they were promoting. … There was a lot of nudity in the films, … promotion of homosexuality…, and also ridicule of the clergy, blasphemy…. … The Catholics stepped up to the plate and created the Legion of Decency [National Legion of Decency]. …
The Jews in Hollywood caved in [to the boycott]. They instituted the production code, and for 31 years there was no nudity in films, no obscenity, no promotion of homosexuality, no ridicule of the clergy…. The Jews sensed their moment of opportunity [in 1965], and they floated a Holocaust film, which had become their sacred cause in the meantime — a huge difference between 1933 and 1965. The Jews now had the upper hand because of the Holocaust. So they floated a Holocaust film called ‘The Pawnbroker,’ which starred Rod Steiger. The whole point of this is to use the Holocaust as a front, as a way of smuggling in what they’re really interested in, which is bare breasts. So there’s a black prostitute who bares her breasts in the middle of this film. That breaks the code. … They broke whatever restraints were on them. …
The Pawnbroker … was initially rejected because of two scenes in which the actresses Linda Geiser and Thelma Oliver fully expose their breasts; and a sex scene between Oliver and Jaime Sánchez, which it described as “unacceptably sex suggestive and lustful.” (source)
Many struggle to overcome lustful desire/porn/masturbation/adultery/fornication/homosexuality/lustful fantasies…..This is all because when you allow a LITTLE of it into you and do a LITTLE, look a LITTLE, fantasies a LITTLE, then you FEED your problem a little at a time and HELP IT GET STRONGER. So of corse you go downhill all the time with it. You never surface and find a foothold to get out of it…..Are you on a DOWNHILL slide with nothing to hold onto to pull yourself up and up and out?
This is because you are FEEDING your sin and it is getting BIGGER, and STRONGER in your life….In time, this sin will reap death for you….
But when you reach out and repent and FORCEFULLY TURN from it and walk with Christ in his light, then in freedom you will begin the walk of enduring these temptations and the power of Christ will be with you, and since you are no longer feeding the sin, it’s power greatly diminishes in your life (strength of temptation and desire and hold in your life) until there is nothing left of it leaving you free to easily put it down and keep under control in self-control….
But KEEP SHARP for people will fall when they least expect it if they do not stay alert and watchful and victory will quickly be wiped out. So stay alert and watchful so nothing will take your crown. Endure and remain faithful, for in freedom you will find the way light and easy to bear…..
If we allow a LITTLE, we allow the lust demons to come in and drive lust, so it becomes an addiction seemingly impossible to break. If we FORCEFULLY TURN from it, not giving the demons a place, we can be free.
The false Grace gospel that is being preached in churches has led to a situation where Christians believe that it is acceptable to sin. Many of them say that they are all sinners. They think that it is acceptable to keep on stumbling, to keep on going back to the same sin. Jesus made it very clear that it is not acceptable for any of His followers to stumble.
We read in Matthew 5:27 Jesus said: “You have heard that it was said, you shall not commit adultery, but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you, for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off, and throw it from you, for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell.” If you keep on stumbling, you will end up in hell.
Jesus does not call us to stumble He calls us to repent and stop sinning, and live in holiness or else we will end up in hell. The writer of Hebrews writes in Hebrews 10:26 “For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a terrifying expectation of judgment, and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries. Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses, dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much severer punishment do you think He will deserve who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the Covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of Grace. For we know Him who said:”Vengeance is mine, I will repay,” and again, the Lord will judge His people. It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the Living God.” He is talking here about believers. It is not acceptable to go back to sin. If you go back to sin there is no more grace. It is not acceptable to go back to sin. The wrath of God will come on you and if you do not repent, you will perish.
Many believe that God will only punish them, but they will still be saved. That is a lie. If you bear bad fruit you will get cut off and burned. If you bear no fruit for the kingdom of God you will get cut off and burned. If you sin, you will burn. The Apostle John wrote in 1st John chapter 5 verse 18:”We know that anyone born of God does not keep on sinning.” If a person keeps on sinning he is not a child of God. He was not born again or if he was born again, like the hog he has gone back to roll in the mire, like the dog he has gone back to his own vomit.
We read in 1st John chapter 3 verse 4 “Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. You know that He (Jesus), appeared in order to take away sins and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides in Him sins. No one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. Little children, make sure that no one deceives you. The one who practices righteousness is righteous just as He is righteous. The one who practices sin is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. No one who is born of God practices sin, because his seed abides in him and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious, anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother”
There are so many Christian believers that study the Bible and that quote you Bible verses about the grace of God, but they don’t know Jesus. They are not born again, they do not abide in Jesus. As the Apostle said:”no one who abides in Him sins. No one who sins has seen Him or knows Him.” If you sin you are of the devil, you’re not a child of God, you’re only deceiving yourself. It is not acceptable even to stumble. Do not tolerate any sin in your life if you are serious about following Jesus. We have to be holy and sin no more. “Without holiness no man shall see God.” Believers that keep on stumbling are on their way to hell. They must repent and stop stumbling, and they must start following Jesus every step of the way, and then they will sin no more, and they will not stumble, because He will guide them He will keep them.
… I remember my grandfather used to have a stack of Playboy’s in the barn. …
What’s different now is the rapid, ready availability of a seemingly infinite array of pornographic options. …
Some time ago, I quit cold turkey. Here’s what I noticed.
I have more time to do the things I enjoy. Whether it’s reading a book, doing a puzzle, or just sleeping, the time I used to spend browsing porn sites, once reclaimed, is significant. …
I have a lot more creative energy. Irrespective of the time reclaimed, I have more energy to do these things with the time I have available. In the time since I quit porn, I’ve managed to write another novel. I’ve also lost about ten pounds.
My imagination has returned, as has my appreciation for natural beauty. …
And I can add myself to the growing multitudes of men who, once they quit, have found that a horde of sexual dysfunctions … seem to resolve themselves.
Jesus will help you to overcome sin and temptation, He will deliver you from bondage and addiction but you have to do your part. Jesus will help you to overcome and get into heaven but the you must follow and obey Him. You have to repent, stop sinning, be baptized in water for the washing off of your sin and you must live holy.
You must avoid temptation, avoid sin. You must remove the stumbling blocks. Change your ways. You have to fight temptation, resist the devil and he will flee from you. We read in Hebrews 12:4 “You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin;”
We have to change our ways to stay out of temptation to be able to overcome. We read in Hebrews 12:12,13 “Therefore, strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble, and make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather be healed.”
You will be tempted and you will be tried, but you have to overcome to be able to enter the kingdom of heaven.
The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 10:13 “No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.”
You have to stop sinning and be holy. You have to work and earn a living. You have to take care of your responsibilities. Jesus will help you in everything, but you have to do your part.
You have to break with sin, bad friends and bad habits. You have to stop sinning, stop cursing, lying, cheating lusting, fornicating, adulterating, cheating, getting yourself into debt, stop being worldly and running after the pleasures of sin. Jesus will help you to overcome but if you do not put in every effort, Jesus will not help you, because you are not serious about following Him. You will end up in hell because of your own laziness and unwillingness. You have to work hard on your salvation.
We read in Luke 13:23“Lord,” someone asked Jesus, “will only a few people be saved?” Jesus answered, 24“Make every effort to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able.”
Jesus will help you, but you must do your part.
May Jesus bless you.

Transcript: Many Christian believers are living in sin and unholiness. They are religious, they go to church, they know the Bible, and they think they are saved, but they have no communion with Jesus Christ, because they are living in sin. We have to keep ourselves pure and holy in order to be in communion with Jesus. Jesus has no communion with sinning believers. Our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit for Him to dwell in and if we defile our bodies, if we allow ourselves to be soiled and dirty, filled with sin immorality, then the Holy Spirit will leave us, we will not have any relationship with Jesus.
We have to live pure and holy and then Jesus will come and dwell in us, but if we do not obey Jesus, and we do not live according to His Commandments, in holiness and righteousness, in obedience to him then He will not dwell in us we will not have any communion with Him we will not have the hope of salvation.
We read the words of Jesus in John chapter 14 verse 21, He said:“He who has my Commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me, and he who loves me will be loved by My Father, and I will love Him, and I will disclose myself to Him.”Jesus is saying that if we obey His commandments then He will love, us and He will come and dwell with us and He will disclose Himself to us. He will speak to us. His Spirit will dwell in us. In verse 23 we read Jesus said:“If anyone loves Me he will keep my word, and My Father will love him and We will come to him and make our abode with him.”
Jesus will come and live with you and me, if we love him and we obey Him, and we keep His words, but we must keep ourselves pure and holy, because our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit for Him to dwell in and He does not dwell with impurity and with sin. If we allow ourselves to be soiled the Holy Spirit will leave us.
The Apostle Paul wrote in 1st Corinthians 6 verse 9:” Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God. Do not be deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you, but you were washed, you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God.” We were all sinners, but if we have a come to Jesus we are not sinners anymore, then we have turned away from sin and we keep ourselves holy for Jesus Christ, for His Holy Spirit to dwell in.
In verse 15 Paul says:”Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute?May it never be! Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her, for He says the two shall become one flesh, but the one who joins himself to the Lord is one Spirit with Him. Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside of the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, Whom you have from God and you are not your own, for you have been bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your body.” Many Christian believers live in adultery and fornication. Many are homosexual. They live in morality. Their minds are defiled through the media, video games, TV, movies, pornography and bad company, worldly friends. They have become conditioned to evil, watching soap opera, and participating and worldly entertainment. They are of the world. They are not pure, they are not holy and they cannot be in communion with Jesus, they have no hope of salvation. Merely believing in Jesus cannot save us. We must repent, stop sinning, be holy, turn to Jesus, be baptized in water for the washing off of sin, and then keep yourself clean, be a temple of the Holy Spirit, in which He can dwell. If you allow yourself to be defiled again, then the Holy Spirit will leave you.
If you once knew Jesus, if you once followed Jesus and you backslid, you went away from Jesus, then repent and cleanse yourself, get rid of your sin get, rid of your bad friends. Purify yourself of yourcleanliness, your immorality. Make yourself a pure vessel, clean and acceptable unto Jesus, or else you will never be in communion with Him.
Jesus gives His Holy Spirit in those who seek Him, who obey Him and who live holy. Most professing Christians have no relationship with Jesus. They have no communion with Jesus. Jesus said:”My sheep hear My voice, they listen to Me and they follow Me.” Very few Christians know the voice of Jesus. Very few follow Him. It is because they’re living in sin. It is because they are not holy and receptive vessels, they are not pure. They do not reserve themselves unto Jesus Christ and therefor they are not fit for the kingdom of heaven. We have to purify ourselves of all uncleanliness, all immorality, all sin, all worldliness, and put our focus on Jesus; be a suitable vessel for the Holy Spirit to dwell in, and then He will speak to us. He will guide us. He will teach us. We will be in communion with Him, but if we allow sin to come in, if we give the devil a foothold [a ‘place,’ the Greek word really says – editor], then the Holy Spirit of Christ will leave us. He will go silent on us, because we choose evil, and through our choice of wrong and of evil we reject Jesus Christ and we stray from Him, we stop following Him and go on the wrong path.
Many have never followed Jesus. They have never been in that close relationship with Him. They believe they are saved but they are on the broad road to destruction. There’s only one way to have eternal life and that is to follow and obey Jesus Christ, reserve yourself unto Him, seek Him always in prayer and He will reveal Himself to you. Stay with Jesus until the very end and you will be saved, but if you are not holy you will not see Him. Without holiness no man shall see God. Without holiness no man will enter the kingdom of God. Without holiness nobody will have any relationship with Jesus Christ.
Keep yourself clean and walk with Jesus.
May Jesus bless you.
“Watching pornography will lead to Hellfire. Don’t get caught in this trap of the Devil. Lust is the same as adultery of the heart. God calls it a sin and in order to get lust out of your life, you will need to take drastic measures, but it will be worth it in the end!”
Adulterers and adulteresses are those who commit adultery. Adultery is sexual perversion, it is unholiness, it is sex outside of the holiness of marriage. But we know from the words of Jesus that adultery is not limited to the physical outward act. Adultery starts with the heart, it starts with your thoughts inside of you. That is why Jesus said to men, if you lust after a woman you have already committed adultery in your heart.
If you are a young lady or woman I want to speak to you today about modesty. Modesty is VERY important if you are choosing to follow Jesus, because if you dress immodestly you are in danger of becoming an adulteress, and as we know adulteresses will NOT inherit the kingdom of God.
If you are not sure what it looks like to dress modestly ask a brother in the Lord, maybe ask your dad. If men are honest, they will tell you what it means to dress modestly, and if you are honest with yourself you will know what it means to dress modestly also.
If you are wanting to follow Jesus and be a sister in the Lord, make sure that you dress modestly, otherwise you are in danger of being an adulteress, and adulterers and adulteresses have absolutely no part in the kingdom of God.
