Christian Cannabis Church of America - Our church is based on "What would Jesus do?
We are starting a new kind of Church. One that excepts the use of cannabis and people that use it for spiritual healing or any other reason. At our meetings we let everyone learn and share everyone can minister to each other. We have some worship music and time of meditation. Then we talk about the life of christ and how to be more like him. We are in the formation stage of our church and afterwards have discussions about how to build the church and the direction members think we should move in and how we can help each other.
The belief of the church is that God created the earth, and the followers of God and Jesus would want man to be the guardian of nature and what God created. It is our core belief that nature was created for a reason, and it was a plan of God for man to use it wisely for about anything man may need. The earth was designed to provide food, medicine and most all things that man needs. Jesus was born to lead people back to God and reason. Jesus wasn’t born in a country under Military occupation. His ideas and vision was quiet different for the people than the rulers of the world. However he was non-violent and did not believe that force and wanted people to have free choice to follow what he was trying to say. He was focused on helping the sick, feeding the poor and many other things. What would Jesus do today and what would he think of the the world of today?
We focus on community building and helping each other.
Our core standards are: End to discrimination - Be a guardian of nature - Healing the sick - Feeding the poor.

Jesus used Marijuana
As doubtful as the following hypothesis might first seem to the reader, I might as well boldly state my case right from the start: either Jesus used marijuana or he was not the Christ. The very word “Christ”, by the implication of its linguistic origins and true meaning, gives us the most profound evidence that Jesus did in fact use the same herb as his ancient semitic ancestors, and which is still used by people around the world for its enlightening and healing properties.
The Greek title “Christ” is the translation of the Hebrew word Messiah, which in English becomes “The Anointed”
The Messiah was recognized as such by his being anointed with the holy anointing oil, the use of which was restricted to the instillation of Hebrew priests and kings If Jesus was not initiated in this fashion then he was not the Christ, and had no official claim to the title.
The title “Messiah” is much older than Christianity, as all the ancient kings of Israel are referred to as the “Messiah”. “Christos – Anointed One, a title of many Middle-Eastern sacrificial gods: Attis, Adonis, Tammuz, Osiris. . .”
The ancient recipe for this anointing oil, recorded in the Old Testament book of Exodus (30: 22-23) included over nine pounds of flowering cannabis tops, Hebrew “kaneh-bosm” extracted into a hind (about 6.5 litres) of olive oil, along with a variety of other herbs and spices. The ancient chosen ones were literally drenched in this potent cannabis holy oil.
God said, "Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth....to you it will be for meat.... And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. (Genesis 1:29-31)
The Lord said ..Afore harvest, when the bud is perfect and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks and take away and cut down the branches. (Isaiah 18:4-5)
HOW WAS THE MARIJUANA PLANT USED DURING BIBLICAL TIMES?
Cannabis was used 12 ways: as clothing, paper, cord, sails, fishnet, oil, sealant, incense, food, and in ceremony, relaxation and medicine.
"Cana" got its name from the same root word as "cannabis," indicating that hemp was grown there.
The Three Wise Men who came to witness the birth of Christ are believed to be Zoroastrians, who regarded hemp as a special gift of God.
The “m” is a pronounced plural, and the singular kaneh-bos sounds remarkably similar to the modern cannabis.
Although often mistranslated as “calamus”, the word has been translated as “fragrant-cane” in most modern bibles, and specifically designates the fragrant flowering tops of cannabis.
From the time of Moses until that of the later prophet Samuel, the holy anointing oil was used by the shamanic Levite priesthood to receive the “revelations of the Lord”. At the dawn of the age of Kings, Samuel extended the use of the anointing oil to the Hebraic monarchs by anointing Saul (and later David) as “Messiah-king”. These kings lead their people with the benefit of insights achieved through using the holy anointing oil to become “possessed with the spirit of the Lord.”
“Anointing was common among kings of Israel. It was the sign and symbol of royalty. The word ‘Messiah’ signifies the ‘Anointed One’, and none of the kings of Israel were styled the Messiah unless anointed.” The title was clearly only given to those “having the crown of God’s unction upon them” (Leviticus 21:12).
After the fall of the Jewish kingdoms, and the bloody purges following the forged discovery of the Book of theLaw (1 Kings 23), the cannabis holy oil was prohibited as associated with pagan worship. Yet it seems that certain sects retained the topical entheogen, and continued to practice the older religion, silently awaiting the return of a Messiah-king in the line of David.
The ministry of Jesus marked the return of the Jewish Messiah-kings, and thus the re-emergence of the holy oil. Jesus was called the Christ because he violated the Old Testament taboo on the cannabis oil and distributed it freely for initiation rites and to heal the sick and wounded.
Although there is some evidence of Jesus’ use of this Judaic cannabis oil in the traditional New Testament, we get a clearer picture of its importance when we also look at surviving Gnostic documents. The term Gnostic, meaning “knowledge”, refers to a variety of early Christian sects which had extremely different beliefs about both Jesus and his teachings than those which have come down to us through modern Christianity.
