LTRP Note: Recently, Lighthouse Trails published a booklet by Linda Nathan titled The Cross and the Marijuana Leaf. Nathan wrote this booklet to show the truth about marijuana. As the use of marijuana continues to skyrocket in the U.S. (as the MSN article below says), the downfall of the American society will continue as well. Even many proclaiming Christians (especially younger ones) have justified using the substance. Instead of these proclaiming Christians pointing the world to the Light of the world (Jesus Christ), they are telling the world it’s OK to light up and smoke pot. As Nathan’s booklet points out, marijuana is a hallucinogenic drug that can take a user down a dangerous spiritual path.

Imposing steep personal income, property, and sales taxes has never been popular. But states must raise money to fund government operations somehow. Click here to continue reading.
