“Toking the Holy Spirit”
Matt S August 29th 2017 Part 8 (False teachings/heresy series)
I don’t know about you, but this would have to be some of the weirdest stuff that has been given “legitimate” place in Christendom (or should I say illegitimate). For those of you that don’t know what “toking” is, it refers (no pun intended) to the smoking of a marijuana cigarette, or joint. So let’s just put that all together, toking the Holy Spirit would be……… Smoking the Holy Spirit in a manner that one would normally consume a marijuana cigarette is nothing short of blasphemous in my opinion.
What if you saw advertising for an evangelical missions outreach called the Drunken Glory Tour? Really!! What impression does this give vulnerable, naive, impressionable folk, maybe this looks just like the world they already live in, why would they bother with this? Does it give them the impression that drunkenness is okay when the Bible says it’s not? See Ephesians 5:18, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11. Ephesians 5:18 says be filled with the spirit instead (as opposed to drunkenness).
Why would one want to “act out”, “emulate” drug taking activity in a way that is supposed to bring one closer to God? This is what pagan cultures do in order to connect with their gods (demonic entities).
