Colorado Bible Study Goes to Pot: ‘Stoner Jesus’ Group Combines Weed with the Word

By Heather Clark | christiannews.net

Study-compressedCENTENNIAL, Colo. — A Bible study group in Colorado has literally gone to pot, inviting its members to smoke marijuana together while discussing the Scriptures.

The group is called the “Stoner Jesus Bible Study” and was formed after Colorado legalized the use of recreational marijuana. It was formed by Deb Button, who first posted her invite on Craigslist. Only one person attended at first, who told reporters last month that Button was “so baked out of her head she forgot that she’d invited me over.”

“Many people have a thirst for spiritual connection that is lacking in the traditional church setting and we aim to learn from the wisdom of His word and teachings,” the group writes on its website. “And yes, cannabis is welcome as it can bring clarity of thought and a sense of connectedness that we often only find in a small group of fellow stoners.”

The stoner study has now grown to several people, including a Mormon, a Catholic and an atheist, according to New York Magazine.

“Jesus didn’t hang out with the Pharisees,” attendee Cynthia Joye told the outlet. “If somebody passed Him a pipe, He wouldn’t say no.”

JeTaun Brown told CBS Denver this past week she reading the Bible while stoned “enables people to relax and focus.”

“I think you have a deeper thought process, which makes you better understand,” she claimed.

Button told the outlet that she didn’t see a problem with mixing weed and the word as some congregations have small group studies with wine and cheese.

However, many Christians nationwide remain opposed to the smoking of the plant out of their belief that the substance interferes with the Biblical command to be “sober-minded.”

“Sorcery/witchcraft is from the Greek word ‘pharmakia’ the same word we get pharmacy from. It means the general illicit use of drugs (same application as today) and the use of drugs to cast spells,” writes Steve Rudd in “Drugs and the Bible: E, Shrooms, Cocaine, Crack, Marijuana.” “Psychologically, drugs can cause us to lose all sense of control. We switch our entire dependence and reason for living to the chemical.”

“The Bible teaches in I Corinthians 6:19-20 that God has given us our bodies; our bodies belong to Him,” he continues. “We are also told in Romans 12:1 that we are to present our bodies a living sacrifice to God. Can we do this and be drug dependent?”

    Some of this stupidity doesn’t even merit a responds. There is only going to be remnant that will be saved out of millions upon millions. I am working out my salvation with fear and trembling daily the scripture says that even “the just will scarcely make it in”. Many are on the the broad road,that is the way that seems right to them but the end will be destruction and the few travel the narrow way that leads to life some times it’s a hard way and lonely at times but we are never left alone or without strength. Be encouraged to all of the adamant believers around the world. SHALOM! GOD IS HOLY!

    The bible also says that God gave man every plant That beareth seed is good and for our food. Listen there is nothing in the bible that says smoking weed is bad. In fact I don’t believe u r out of your regular mind when u smoke. Blocks out the rediculousNess of this world and allows u to connect with like minded people

    In the last days, sin will abound. This should not surprise us it should just encourage us to stay on the path that leads to life and remember that broad is the way that leads to destruction.
