Drugs have a Proven Connection with Sorcery and Witchcraft

Revelation 21:8 “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

According to W.E. Vine’s expository dictionary of New Testament Words (page 1074), the word SORCERY comes from a Greek word, PHARMAKIA - used as a noun, it “signifies a sorcerer,” one who uses drugs, potions, spells, enchantments, as in Rev. 21:8.

The english word for drugs, pharmacy, comes from this same root. Drugs and potions have traditionally been used in witchcraft and satanic rituals to induce deeper subconscious states which enable persons to have fellowship and communication with demons. Realizing the satanic relationship with drug use helps us to understand why abusers of drugs experience such bondage and depravation. No where in the Bible or in history have drugs been used to bring people closer to God - they have always been used in relation to bringing people closer to evil powers and demonic influences.

WHY DO We call them WITCH Doctors?

This makes me want to snort and/or smoke something.

I certainly hope you don't drink coffee, or any other caffeinated beverage. Caffeine is a drug. Similarly, no chocolate. And as for medicine, well, you'd better steer clear of your pharmacist.

Oh, go take your Thorazine/Thioridizine; you'll feel muuuuch better, I promise.

Either this is a seriously insane argument against health care in general or a very good poe. I am going to go with the first option.

Because you think that science is magic.

Is there anything other than bible verses that RR people will speak kindly of?

Plants. Most of this shit is just plants.

Plants are your friends.

Methinks someone is looking for an excuse not to take their meds.

What a bunch of insane twaddle. Even if true, the Greek word "pharmakia" was a translation of the original word used, so why would it be significant?

"Sinister" means left-handed, and has its present connotation due to the original significance of the hand shake. We should kill all left handed people! /sarcasm

Sooooo does this mean you're communicating with demons when you have your morning coffee caffeine fix?

4/7/2010 7:28:22 AM


Drugs and potions have traditionally been used by cunning women (and men) to cure diseases and ailments. The church did not look kindly on others procuring cures, and had the cunning folks demonized, hanged and burned.

Alcohol is a drug. It was used in the Bible to bring Lot closer to his daughters...

"No where in the Bible or in history have drugs been used to bring people closer to God."

A number of cultures around the world which use hallucinogens to connect with the gods in religious rituals would ike a word with you.

Stop getting your psychiatric advice from Tom Cruise.

Some day you will be begging for drugs, asshole.

Drugs work; Witchcraft doesn't.
Any questions?

I can just imagine all the chldren eating chocolate and the adults drinking coffee singing "Ooh, ee, ooh ah ah, Ting Tang, Walla Walla Bing Bang" randomly....

Someone send this guy to the psych ward ASAP.

Indeed. When a couple pills succeed where months of prayer have failed, it kinda blows holes in the "all you need is prayer, and God will answer."

That's some fucking damn impresive mental gymnastics there buddy.

4/7/2010 7:46:09 AM


...Is that lout talking about stuff like cocaine or does he include medicine in the lot?

4/7/2010 7:56:49 AM


What about Apollo's oracle at Delphi? Last I checked, she used some hallucinogens to 'communicate' with Apollo.

4/7/2010 8:12:16 AM


I would say "WTF have you been smoking?" but ....

4/7/2010 8:23:44 AM


Now that is a fundie that has made a direct personal attack on me. I need drugs (doctor prescribed) to exist. Unlike a fundie, I don't live in a delusion thinking that I go to happy land after I die.

Arctic Knight

Let me get this straight, using the etymology of an English word to try and link pharmaceuticals with sorcery is fine, but when someone explains the pagan origins of such holidays as Christmas and Easter, you fundies will get your panties in a bundle?

The double standard is so obvious it's blinding.

c.1300, from O.Fr. sorcerie, from sorcier "sorcerer," from V.L. *sortiarius, lit. "one who influences, fate, fortune," from L. sors (gen. sortis) "lot, fate, fortune" (see sort). Sorceress (late 14c.) is attested much earlier than sorcerer (1520s).

Fundieism has a Proven Connection With Retardation and Stupidness.

I wish I had the ability to conduct a study to determine a definite connection between fundy christianity/islam and insanity.

The results, I fear, could horrify the rest of the populace. The normal ones, anyway.
