Weed Makes It Easier to Worship?!
Craig Gross started a strange ‘church’ in California, called the “XXX Church,” because he wanted to rehabilitate those affected by the porn industry.
However, while attending a music festival, he smoked a bunch of marijuana (‘weed’) then watched his favourite musician perform. During this psychoactive experience, Craig started raising and waving his hands, which led him to try the same thing at church. He now claims that smoking “weed makes it easier to worship,” and he refers to marijuana as “Christian Cannabis,” which he is now trying to make legal.
Now, if we define ‘worship’ as ‘waving your hands and swaying to emotional music,’ then perhaps Craig has a point. However, Jesus told us what true worship really is.
John 4:23-24, But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Worship has nothing to do with swaying to emotional music; therefore, Weed cannot make it easier to worship because THAT’s not worship! But, in reality, “the WORD makes it easier to worship”! The Word of God instructs us on what God the Father is looking for when we worship Him.
So, our friend Craig ‘almost’ had it right, and what he should have said was that the WORD makes it easier to worship God!
