What is this book about? And who is it for?
Whether you’re a practicing witch, Christian, recovering from religion, just curious, agnostic, spiritual but not religious, or none of the above, there’s something here for you. This is for fun. I did not set out to solve the problem of drug use, altered mind states, theology, and the like. I noticed that there were shamans in my city who were experiencing “transcendental states” of mind interacting with the divine. Sometimes it was the Creator, Jesus, good and bad spirits, or just experiences with themselves. I did my research, limited as it was, and found little or no Christian voices speaking into this experience. Would it be bad if a Christian pastor, theologian, believer got “high” and thought about theology, God, prayer, the concepts and constructs therein? Would it be good? Would it even make sense?
I found out it would be fun. I don’t recommend it, endorse it, condone it, or otherwise place any value on it. Don’t do it. Lots of things are fun. Strip clubs, pornography, weed, candy, beer and pizza, all kinds of things are “fun” in the short- and sometimes long-term. If you are a Christian who values your standing with God and your community, you would be best advised to avoid drugs of any kind. I include caffeine, alcohol, sugar, cannabis, and so on. You ever pray after three cups of coffee? Or after fasting for two days? Your mind, body, and spirit all will be different. “Bad” different or just different, I defer to scripture for that answer. Jesus drank wine at a wedding party, but refused wine on the cross. Discipline seems to be the way we are supposed to live, and we are not to avoid the pain of obedience.
What are you going to read? It’ll be a trip, a tumbling, stumbling run of ideas. When someone gets high, one’s mind may come up with creative, beautiful new concepts and ideals. I’ve always wanted to get my pastor high and see what his prayers sound like. I’ve always wanted to take someone like Donald Trump or Sean Hannity and get them high. There’s no way they would still talk the same, I believe it would change them, even if only temporarily. I’ve always wanted to get a theologian high and see if their systemic way of understanding God gave way to a cloudy wave of interconnectedness and gracious beauty. Or nonsense. Maybe both.
You are going to read a long-time full-time minister, a Theology major, a non-profit director, licensed counselor, and eventual pastor’s thoughts. It’ll sometimes sound like a shotgun blast of ideas, half-baked for lack of a better term, and some “fun.” Socialism, power, witchcraft, dreams and visions, solution-focused brief therapy, and a whole variety of thoughts that bounce around while high.

“I get the honor of introducing the world to Abram MK. It’s a very different experience hearing the cannabis influenced thoughts of someone with a couple of careers and college degrees. I have had the chance to listen to Abram talk about his God, the visions he has, the ideas for our people… I told him to start writing all this down. A year later, we get High Theology, and I am could not be more excited. He flows from social justice, to the supernatural and metaphysical realm, to the political system. It’s a wild ride, and you’ll love every second of it. Read it slowly, take your time and enjoy it. Thanks for the look inside your mind and heart, Abram.”
