  1. actually, you’re wrong, an active church will not deter crime and sin – only God can do that. All the Church can do is point out that this is not how things are supposed to be.
    We do not have the power to change the nature of a person. Thus, the laws against drugs are all we have. The problem is, we prosecute people for cannabis, but let them drink alcohol. And that is hypocrisy at its highest. ALL non medicinal drugs (and yes, alcohol is a drug) should be banned. Simple.
    “But that will will drive it underground” – yeah, it will. And thereby preventing about 80% of the people who would normally access it, accessing it.
    “But, I dont do drugs and I only drink casually…” – well, booze is a drug. And second, you have a responsibility to the community you live in you selfish sod.

    So, while you’re out there having a nice drink to celebrate christmas, just remember that you are tacitly condoning the use of alcohol, and along with that all the evil that will be committed due to it this christmas.

    Merry Christmas 😛

    1. But Geoff, I believe that the Church is the Body of Christ, and that God is working through the Church – if we have Him as the center. We are sent out, we carry forth. We preach the Gospel which changes the nature of the person.

    (oh, and hell can not freeze over, its “worm never dies” :P)

    Ah yes, but that’s not what you said 😛
    You said, and I quote:

    First, it is not the laws of men which will deter crime and sin and the such, but an active church

    I’m not saying you’re wrong about the Church’s function, just that it is going to “deter crime and sin”.
