Drugs

 

Leap of Faith MinistriesClarksville, TN – No one denies that there are pleasures connected with drugs. Even the Bible admits that the world offers pleasure but it speaks of them as the “passing pleasures of sin”. (Hebrew 11:25) They are pleasures, but they don’t last. And the price men have to pay for indulging in them is too high.
