The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
In addition, I do want to point out that this is another example of a so called scholars not knowing the language and translating, with their emotion or translating, without doing the necessary legwork, needed for a proper translation.
Now, let's look at an actual word of word translation of the same passage.
Now, works of the flesh present itself in sexual immorality, impurity and indecency, involvement with the worship of false gods, the use or the administering of drugs and herbs to induce an altered state, contention, excitement of mind, fervor of spirit, fierce anger; in selfish ambition, partisanship, division, following their own doctrine; drunkenness, orgies and things like these. I warn you now as I have warned you before: those who do such things will have no share in the Kingdom of God!
A simple historical investigation, of the word Pharmekeia, reveals that witches used chemicals or drugs to induce an altered state of consciousness, to invoke the spirits. Inducing an altered state of consciousness actually opens a doorway into the spiritual world and provides evil and unclean spirits a clear path to enter the individual and our reality. This clearly shows that drug abuse is the main object of Paul's warning, in Galations 5:19-21. This also show how Biblical scholars injected witchcraft in the place of drug dealers.
Does thid let the present day field of Pharma of the hook?
Absolutely not! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that Pharma is continuing to supply their "witch's brew" of various chemicals to hook the human race, into states of euphoria, in an effort to relieve our pain and reality woes. Each time we use these foreign chemicals, our bodies natural response is a want for more and more. We become numb to our reality. We become numb to our spiritual connection to God.
We must ask ourselves, "why?" Why is the Pharmaceutical Industry driven to provide us the newest strains of conscious bending drugs? Money? No Doubt. However, could it be another diabolical way, used by Satan, to disconnect humanity from God?
