[They say we do drugs to alleviate our pain and become addicted to feel normal again. Over and over again the theme is that drugs only provide an illusion and that they are the tool of the Devil to deceive. Consequently, those who do drugs to find God or to unveil secret knowledge are following in the footsteps of Faust – taking shortcuts, doing forbidden and evil things, and falling into the traps of Satan. We don’t know – tentanda via – the way must be tried – say we, but be aware and don’t be naive. The search for truth isn’t for fools, and the price can be worse than death.]

Proverbs 31New International Version (NIV)
Sayings of King Lemuel

31 The sayings of King Lemuel—an inspired utterance his mother taught him.

Listen, my son! Listen, son of my womb!
Listen, my son, the answer to my prayers!

Do not spend your strength on women,
your vigor on those who ruin kings.

It is not for kings, Lemuel—it is not for kings to drink wine, not for rulers to crave beer,
lest they drink and forget what has been decreed, and deprive all the oppressed of their rights.

Let beer be for those who are perishing,
wine for those who are in anguish!
Let them drink and forget their poverty
and remember their misery no more.
