Words are Tomorrow in Today by Tom Brown
One of the greatest fears of mankind is the fear of the future. There is no reason to fear the future, because Jeremiah 31:17 says, "There is hope for your future." Combine this verse with Jeremiah 29:11 and you have assurance for a great future: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Some people have the attitude that some are born to have a good destiny while others are born to have a bad destiny. They think God is up in heaven saying to one person, "I like you. I'm going to make you into a great person." Then they think God turns to another and says, "I don't like you. I'm going to give you a bad destiny." Some people think that some are meant to have a great future but others are meant to have a bad future. But this is simply not true.
Is it wrong to smoke pot? I smoke pot maybe 3 times a day. I don't feel as if I'm addicted to it, but I don't want to offend God.
Smoking pot is wrong first of all because it is against the law in the United States. Even where some states have legalized it, the federal government does not recognize those state laws.
Thanks for this article on "Did Jesus Die On Good Friday?" It brings the point across very clear. I was struggling with the concept of a Good Friday after reading an article from another ministry and it seemed to try to say that anyone worshiping on Good Friday was not a true Christian. So your points have set my mind at rest. I know that it is not important to know which days he died, just that he did die and was resurrected for our sins. I shall try to get to listen to you when you visit England. God bless.
