7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: 11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. 12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? 13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. 14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. 15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable. 16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? 17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? 18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: 20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man. - Matthew 15:7-20

24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. - Matthew 24:11-13

The Church Institute has brought up the non-violent Parish Militia, to establish & organize for security within each Parish. We ourselves, forwith each Parish we join or establish, will model its local membership as a Militia. Recruit every owner of firearms, whether handguns or long arms. Start a training regimen, for members and the youth. Organize to Company level strength to establish a Court. Process most offenders as “Article 15” justice, on the spot. Spiritual Street Justice.
In “taking spiritual refinement from across a broad range of religions”, here is Surah 36, Yaseen, the Heart of the Quran.
the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. - Romans 8:26
My three Vows to God:
Here we have some Street Wisdom.
There are numerous passages supporting the concept of not condemning each other in drinking, smoking, or taking drugs. Romans 15:1 stands large.
15:1 We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.
- Romans 15:1
Other pertinent passages include:
11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
- Matthew 15:11
26For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
- James 2:26
31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

22 Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.
- Romans 14:22
These verse describes a very liberal approach, with the freewill of man allowed to express itself. It really is between you and God. So drink, smoke & take drugs, for the glory of God, if you allow.
We allow smoking Marijuana, in the scope of constitutionally protected religious freedoms within the Church of the Sacrifice. Marijuana is a spiritual, healing medication, a gift to us from God and an integral part of our church.
Especially regarding marijuana, we can look to Jeremiah 30:13…
There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines. – Jeremiah 30:13
healing medicines” spoken of by Jeremiah is Marijuana, a healing, botanical, spiritual medicine.
However, this consumption should not be uncontrolled or unrestrained as it is unhealthy for the body. Along with the idea that what comes out of a man’s mouth is what defiles him, we see 2 Timothy 2:16.
But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
- 2 Timothy 2:16
This is of greater consequence than what is consumed. Here is the decisive and divisive point: if those who consume unhealthily also spend their time in ungodly talk, then they re lost and need gentle instruction.
In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
26And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
- 2 Timothy 2:25-26
16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
- 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Many, many good Godly folk, given to good, godly talk and conversation visit establishments seen by churches as ungodly. This sermon is a REPROOF to the churches who condemn members of the body of Christ, unjustly.
We are taking our cross back, in Sacrifice we goeth forth.
7 Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.
- Proverbs 31:7
And equally applies to one smoking marijuana, or even doing harder drugs. Oh! So much misery! Dread! And the addiction compounds matters.
Then your “religious family” kicks you out for being an addict, evidently you are against God. Not sure how that adds up, you are miserable and addicted! Kicked out and banished, so much MORE misery! And they say they do this in Christ’s name? Dread! Deathly Hypocrites! Thanks, ‘family’…meh.
Need a new family…Rainbow Family!
