Story of Jeremy I first took LSD when I was 15 years old., Jeremy admits. A friend of mine gave it to me. I really did not know what I as taking and probably if I had known what it was, I would have passed. I kind of thought it was going to be like ecstasy, which I had taken once before. Ecstasy mellowed me and made me fell warm, but it didnt make me see things. I wasnt prepared at all for what happened to me. Thank goodness I was with my friends who knew what as going on. Jeremy remembers feeling dizzy, then beginning to see familiar objects change shape before him. My buddys backpack started morphing into a monkey that was riding on him. I thought it was hilarious, colors changed and became more vivid and fluid things looked like they were melting. At first, I thought it was really cool, but after awhile, everyones speaking voice got distorted and I got scared, more and more scared as the night went on. I was shaking little and started sweating a lot. I didnt know what was happening. My friends took me to a quiet room in the house and sat with me. After two hours, I guess, the hallucinations started tapering off and I was okay. I know some people think LSD is a really cool trip. But I dont think I will ever do it again. I didnt like feeling out of control of my mind and perceptions.

The Christian worldview
Gods Perspective God says we should take care of our bodies so we shouldnt eat or take any drug including LSD because our bodies belong to God. God gave us our minds to use, not twist or alter. When someone is high on drugs, everything is being altered. It may seem nice, but it is not real. God, on the other hand, is the ultimate reality and drugs are not the way to Him. Having a humble heart is.
What does the Bible say about the care of our bodies? 1 Corinthians 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? In this verse, it states that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. With this in mind, we should know that taking drugs and destroying your body is destroying the temple of the Holy Spirit. As Christians, we are in a constant battle against Satan, and we shouldnt be unprepared. LSD has effects mentally, emotionally, and physically. These can cause bad traits of a godly warrior. Satan is always around, ready to devour us, in this case, we must be very self-controlled and alert. We must realize that anything that weakens us is evil.
