Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
“Spiritual Warfare” If alcohol kills one person every 10 seconds then why is it still legal to buy alcohol? Alcohol used to be illegal, way before America commercialized and glamorized it. Actually, alcohol was illegal in different places around the world. This period in US history was known as the prohibition era. Prohibition means an act of prohibiting; and prohibition existed from 1920-1933. It ended by the 21st amendment on December 5, 1933, making alcohol legal once again.
Why did prohibition end? In my opinion, for the same reason cigarettes have never been illegal to buy or smoke, even though; “tobacco is the single greatest cause of preventable death globally.” Smoking tobacco also leads most commonly to diseases affecting the heart, liver and lungs, and creates a major risk factor for heart attacks, strokes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. But America is not concerned about that! Here’s why; “they actually make money on the front end and the back end.” (It is estimated that both obesity and smoking add $100 billion dollars to the U.S. health costs annually). You have to look at the big picture here; you know the estimated $100 billion profit is not going into pockets of victims who develop diseases caused by tobacco agents, or worse, who die from smoking tobacco products. So who benefits, or prospers off tobacco smoking related health care costs? You don’t have to be a rocket-scientist to answer that question, but the list of who profits is long!
Spiritual Warfare; Satan waging war on our heath is all the rage today. And just look how creative he is, when he engages or tempts people to try one, drink one; knowing full well, most people can’t just do it one time….because his substances are all addictive.
You can spit it any way you want, but the simple explanation for why cigarettes and alcohol are legal to buy is man’s insatiable greed. Money making potential determines whether man cosigns on a specific product, regardless of known health risk factors. You tell me; “is God pleased about It?”
Man knows knows, once you let a money making genie out of a bottle, you can’t get it back in, no matter how hard you try. America will never own up to why they do what they do, when it involves victimizing and sucking millions out of non-suspecting people to satisfy carnal desires, while pocketing ill gotten proceeds. You will never in life hear any benefactor of tobacco or cigarette profits, come out and say; “tax revenues generated from cigarettes and alcohol, are too big to do away with, regardless of healthcare costs associated with consumption of either.”
