Being christian and doing shrooms
    #1400440 - 03/22/03 12:31 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Every one at my church doesn't like the idea of drugs..what they don't realize is that shrooms arnt drugs..they are completely natural..also in the bible there are many writings of mushrooms in symbolic form..such as manna..the church only does not like mushrooms because the damn government labeled them as a drug..and forbidded them for doing so..God said that all he created is good..and no doubt about that..how can one who believes in god deny his own creations?? So if your christian and feel bad or doubting shrooms..go right ahead because they are perfectly fin in every way :smirk:

what they don't realize is that shrooms arnt drugs

What they do realize is that shrooms contain two powerful mind-altering drugs; psilocin and psilocybin. You do not ingest them for their fiber, ash, water and carbohydrate content, but for the tryptamines. At least be honest here.

There are things that "God" created that will kill you if you eat them.

Doing shrooms has further entrenched my Christian convictions.

Uh, huh... what you experience on 5 grams of mushrooms is not the same as to what a Christian will experience on 5 grams of mushrooms. Religious people who trip don't come to the realization "We're all God! Man is God!", they come to realize that God is God, and that God is Love, and to know God, you have to transcend. As a Muslim I have tripped many times in the high doses and each experience is a reminder that what I have faith in is real.

The whole formulation, using the first person "I," is wrong. al-Hallaj was crucified (after hands and feet were amputated, for saying "I am the Truth.'' It came close to the saying attributed to Jesus ("I am the Way, and the Truth and the Life..."), which was as blasphemous to Jews, as Hallaj's statement was to Muslims. The classical Christian way of expressing the universall mystical perception of Union was expressed by St. Paul : "I live, yet not I; Christ liveth in me." This formulation posits the paradox of 'I' and 'not I,' plus, it differentiates linguistically the 'I' as ego and the Divine 'I AM,' which is substantially and ontologically 'other than' the human ego, but which can 'suffuse' the human ego (i.e., receiving the Holy Spirit [Consciousness] of God). The Sufis have their own version of this Divine process.

So, correct, 'we' are not God, and the proper formulation has an immediate effect both on ourselves and the hearers of such expressions. The Western mentality can not make the affirmation, "I am God," without ego inflation sneaking in. It is said with a certain bravado (especially at the Shroomery) and totally lacking in the humility which would render such an affirmation into an inaudible whisper, thereby bringing one's mind to the "Still, small voice within," that is closer to the Truth. A certain adolescent irreverence, combined with a misunderstanding of the essential difference between created being and Uncreated Being, and the confusion being further manifested linguistically, becomes an additional obstacle for further spiritual growth.

Doesn't the Koran explicitly forbid the use of mind-altering substances? Or is it just alcohol I'm thinking of?
