Dan Calabrese, the editor-in-chief of Herman Cain’s website, combines Reefer Madness with his own brand of bizarre religious fundamentalism and claims that smoking marijuana “invites demonic infestation” and “puts a person at serious risk of demonic attack.”
But let me show you why smoking pot presents an even bigger problem for you, which is: It invites demonic infestation into your spirit. Take a look at 1 Corinthians 10:14-21:
14 Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. 15 I speak as to wise men; judge for yourselves what I say. 16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? 17 For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread. 18 Observe Israel after the flesh: Are not those who eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar?19 What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything?20 Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons. 22 Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He?
The use of mind-altering substance for “recreational” purposes puts a person at serious risk of demonic attack because what you’re doing is rejecting the natural chemicals God already put in your body as insufficient to satisfy you physically and emotionally.
Hey, you know what the verse he cites doesn’t say? Anything at all about marijuana. Not a single word. As for this demon nonsense….oh, forget it. Why bother even pointing out how stupid that is?
