The Bible Condemnation of Drugs
WRITTEN BY CHRISTOPHER GUSSA
Have you ever noticed the huge surge of desire and longing in people to get back to the natural for our healing and medicine? The FDA combined with the drug industry and the media have almost totally erased this knowledge from our minds, and worse yet from our spirits. The FDA may, someday, take the herbs out of the health food stores but even the FDA will never get rid of the weeds. Yes, believe it our not, the weeds are a gift from God and when God gives us something, no one can take it away.
The Bible condemns the use of poisons for medicine and labels it as sorcery, and very plainly tells us that true medicine is leaves. The common name used for medical leaves is herbs. Ps.104:14 says that He has given us “herbs for the service of man.”
Almost prophetically, Thomas Jefferson gave us this warning: “If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” Remember, this statement was made about 100 years before there ever even was an FDA!
Do you believe for a minute that the government’s healthcare plan (under any administration) is designed to help us live longer healthier lives? Do you know how easy it is for medical universities (funded by pharmaceutical companies) to convince new doctors that “drugs save lives”? Have you ever wondered what The Bible says about all this?
Strong’s exhaustive concordance of the Bible, which lists every word in the Bible, lists the word “sorcery” as word #5332 and tells us that it is translated from the original Greek word “pharmakon.” It gives the definition as: a drug i.e. a spell-giving potion, a druggist or pharmacist, a poisoner.
A pharmacist today has the same Greek title that he had at the time the New Testament was written 2000 years ago, and he is still doing the same thing: dealing in poisonous drugs!
The Bible says that “sorcery”, or the use of poisonous drugs, has deceived all nations. “For by thy sorceries (pharmacea) were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth”. (Rev. 18:23,24)
All nations practice sorcery through the use of drugs, but they are deceived into thinking that it’s right. God condemns the merchandising and use of poisonous drugs along with murder and idolatry. Read it in your own Bible. Study it for yourself. If you don’t own a concordance, borrow one from your library and see it with your own eyes.
Look in Webster’s 2nd Collegiate Dictionary published in 1980 under the word “pharmaceutical.” The definition reads: “pharmaceutical” the practice of witchcraft or the use of poison.
The very first place the word “medicine” is used in the Bible is in Proverbs 17:22 and it says, “A merry heart doeth good, like a medicine.” If medicine and drugs are the same thing, this would, at first glance, seem to reveal a contradiction in the Bible. This question is answered in the very next text listed in the concordance under medicine: EZ. 47:12, “The fruit thereof shall be for meat and the leaf thereof for medicine.” The Bible is telling us that medicine is good and it tells us where to obtain it: from the leaves or what we commonly call “herbs“.
