If God = perfect love, why do substances exist that are consistent with God's will for mankind?

For example, why would God permit a substance such as ecstasy to exist that is known to increase compassion and loving feelings towards others?

How about alcohol, which lowers judgement and decreases social inhibitions that would allow us to treat one another more lovingly?

This wouldn't be applicable for *all* drugs, but it seems that some substances only increase attributes that are consistent with God's will if God is a perfectly loving being.

My question is, if there exists drugs that are consistent with attributes of God, why shouldn't human beings seek to partake in these drugs?

That is a false premise and can be shown to be false with stories of the Flood, Job and the commanding of Moses to commit genocide.

Simple, sane people understand MDMA releases a surge of serotonin, which causes confusion, depression, sleep problems, drug craving, and anxiety.

How about alcohol, which lowers judgement and decreases social inhibitions that would allow us to treat one another more lovingly?

Again, sane people understand alcohol can result in permanent brain damage, serious mental health problems and alcohol dependence.

God isn't a perfectly loving being, far from it.

My question is, if there exists drugs that are consistent with attributes of God, why shouldn't human beings seek to partake in these drugs?

Sane people understand drugs can be dangerous and have long lasting negative effects.

Why do you all believe these "Christian" lies. "God" is not an "all-loving" Alahym. HE doesn't love everyone. Israel are HIS chosen people. Alahym is a man of war. Exodus 15:3 - The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
