Don't encourage people to do drugs. That is irresponsible. Jesus was not a mushroom. I've seen people stab themselves on mushrooms. Is that what you call a savior?

The MOST irresponsible thing a person can do is to tell people that drugs are any sort of path to enlightenment or God.
I often wonder how many barriers I would've avoided setting up for myself had I never touched any psychedelics.
Some of the most profound experiences, the most informative experiences, come from long hours of quiet contemplation, study, and quite a bit of pure accident...both good and bad accident.
I know this one guy who basically looks down upon anyone who informs him that he's completely lost his mind because he claims he's done so much acid that he's broken through so many barriers of consciousness that no one could possibly come close to knowing what he knows.
Problem is that he's also hopelessly addicted to opiates. Sad thing is he has a little kid who is probably suffering greatly because of his father's reckless use of drugs to answer his problems.
If anything, drugs are the path towards ultimate deception and delusion... AKA The Devil.
Also, no we do not have past lives. That is spiritsm, and dead wrong. The only Karmic affects you will see happening come from God, not debts and such from past lives. This contradicts everything you should know as a Christian.

Reread with these thoughts. Genesis, 'sons of God', daughters of men, marriage. Now skip to Noah, perfect in his generations (dna), Ark, family and select animals, flood, destruction of mankind on earth. Entertain the idea of fallen angels mixed with human dna creating monsters that were destroying mankind. Read the book of Enoch and fill in some more blanks. After the flood the fallen angels did the same thing again but God would destroy them (men, women, children, animals) in certain villages because they were monsters and a threat to humans. Stretch yourself even further and think UFOs and women who say they were impregnated, taken again and the baby removed. We could be looking at a future Genesis because Jesus said the last days would be as in the days of Noah. They could be among us again. The bible is real and true. You just have to think about it. It all makes sense when you add back the spirit world that we don't see, Satan and pure evil. Its an awesome book but you have to really want to understand it. Goliath, six fingers, six toes, gigantic? Monsters. God was then and is now only worried about the threat against his creation. He wants to protect what he made but Satan wants to destroy it. You got the good guys and the bad guys backwards. The bible is the first Startrek. There are places in the new testament where Jesus was crossing to the other side of a sea and it just said they were suddenly on shore? Oh yeah, better than Startrek!!!!

Satan’s true intent is to appear as Yahweh to all of creation.
THIS is why the OP and others are totally deceived.
“I will ascend above the highest clouds, I will make myself like the Most High.” Isaiah 14:14
This is ALSO why Satan is the one behind all of these false religions.

Funny thing is most of them don't even know what Satanism is...
This is 2013 people... not everything is the work of a mythical demon with a pitchfork...
Makes my head hurt
Free will was meant to be used and is not being taken back. It is quite possible that you are confusing the true idea here with the indoctrination from a religious upbringing. I have experienced this confusion many times myself and still continue to do so from time to time.
If god gave us free will as a gift then why does he tell us we shouldn't use it? Why give a gift if you plan on taking it back if they use it? That's not a gift, it's a bribe.
Since there is no such thing as hell then this point becomes moot.
If someone makes a few bad mistakes in their short lifespan here on Earth, how does that equal to eternity in hell?
Doesn't matter what year it is, Satan is the deceiver. Why do you think the world is mucked up as it is?? Everything bad is Satanism. He is the problem to our problems. Not God or anyone else.
And in this way I believe that you have created hell in your mind and I would like to change your mind, if I can, and remove hell from your existence forever. I mean, what is this thing you call "your reality" if not a figment of your perception? You believe that Earth is hell and so it becomes true for you. If you were to believe that Earth was heaven would this not equally become true as well?
I don't believe in hell, unless you believe Earth is hell (which I do).
The “Biblical hell” is one that the Catholic church created sometime after the biblical texts were written. This is an idea put into your mind to create fear for the purpose of control. The emotion Fear has been corrupted in this manner to be used as a tool to manipulate and control your mind.
In my opinion the biblical hell is only allegory for a place like Earth where death, destruction, murder, war, pollution, lies, deception, etc. etc. etc. happens every second of every day. The evil rule the world and the catholic church and all other churches in general have all aided in turning Eden into hell on earth.
