- Basic Beliefs
- Probably in a simulation
I'm under the impression that in religions such as Christianity drugs such as psychedelics are not allowed. Is this not the case for some religions? Apparently some "spiritual" people use drugs to have spiritual experiences.
Mormons are even stricter on drugs because they outlaw caffeinated drinks."Sorcery," intriguingly, is pharmakeia in Greek, from which we derive our words "pharmacy" and "pharmaceutical." Diviners, enchanters, witches, and sorcerers employed drugs and other potions to put them or their clients "in the spirit" so their "magic" would work. The drugs, then, came to stand for sorcery of all kinds.
