Proclaiming the Gospel and Encouraging Biblical Discernment
PSYCHEDELIC SEDUCTION: Drugging the World and the Church
Booklet by Richard and Linda Nathan
For the first time in U.S. history, Christians in America are facing the challenge of a majority approval of marijuana. A recent Gallup Poll revealed that 58% of Americans now favor its legalization and 67% of ages 18 to 29 back legalization. Yet when Gallup first asked the question in 1969, only 12% favored legalization.2
By September 2017, there was some form of marijuana legalization in 29 states and the District of Columbia.3
This massive change has occurred in less than fifty years, and it is a major sign of the seismic shift occurring in our culture—a shift that should concern Christians deeply.
But some Christians are uncertain how to view this shift, for the Bible doesn’t mention marijuana directly—or does it?

The products on our site provide excellent research documentation, and they speak the truth about issues confronting the Church today. They also encourage believers in Jesus Christ to uphold the Word of God and remain steadfast in the truth of the Gospel. Our good friend and colleague Ray Yungen—now in Heaven—would've done about anything to get the truth of the Gospel into your hands. May you enjoy his books and the other resources we have.
"Ray was a man who loved life, loved people, and loved God. His tenderhearted manner touched all who came to know him. In addition to his researching and writing, he enjoyed spending time over a good cup of coffee with friends, listening to music, and being in nature. Ray had a zeal for truth and was passionate in his desire to help others find and know truth as well. He loved God’s Word and used it as a measuring rod in all he did and believed. Ray’s research and writing ministry impacted tens of thousands of people throughout the world, and he will be sorely missed by many. He has left an indelible imprint on the Christian church that will be remembered for years to come. Ray’s writings and lectures will continue to be distributed through his publisher, Lighthouse Trails Publishing"
