Big Sigh of Relief #72

No, pot was not an ingredient used in the incense burned in the Tabernacle. I trust Prof. Ed Cook to know what he's talking about.

Don't laugh. The "pot theory" has been bandied about quite a bit - generally to justify sacramental cannabis use. In an earlier time, I probably would have been among its champions (but I hasten to point out that it is only possible to advocate this theory if you are ignorant of how to correctly exegete Scripture). This is the best write-up I have seen on why the theory is false.
