Quote where the Bible was turned upside down.

Person wey dey cry dey see road, na person wey no get eyes go fall enter gutter.

You re really hard to prove a point, even d devil used part of the scripture to tempt Jesus. No doubt you have read the scripture but the cunning interpretation would lead many to the abode of the dead.

Don't try to be smart with me, prove it scripturally where it is permissible to smoke as Christian's and point to one saint in the Bible that smoked weeds or tobacco.

Again.... I am afraid you are late on this one. Jesus Christ already told you from about 2000 years ago that it is not what you eat that makes you unclean/sinful in the sight of God, but it is instead the wickedness you have stored up in your heart that does. In translation, you are free to eat/ingest anything you find for food. grin

The same Jesus Christ also tells you that you will drink poison and it will not harm you. undecided

I can tell that u r not even a Christian. You re jus merely intelligent. so u have no part in this matter.

someone said, "If you say you love Him, Jesus Christ, but you do not keep His, Jesus Christ's, commandments, you are a liar and the Truth(Jesus Christ) does not live inside of you". undecided

So,far all you have done is present a wholly emotional argument on an issue that concerns sin, of which only God,even Jesus Christ, His Word, is arbiter of. Are you sure I am the one who does not know God here? undecided

You are not paying attention at all. I don't attend your churches because it is meaningless to claim I believe in the Truth of God yet it's to listen to the lies men tell in the name of God. undecided

Try to read my comments again so you understand what I am saying. undecided

Eating too much is not a sin in the bible. Jesus Christ was accused of being a glutton and a drunk, just so you know. undecided

I don't know who you have been listening to but next time, pay attention so you are not deceived by the lies of men. undecided
He was accused wrongly, Jesus said he ate and drink but was accused of being a glutton and a drunk....Jesus was never a glutton or a drunk.... Oga go read your bible again.

Where exactly did Jesus Christ tell you that He did not eat as much as to be called a glutton, nor did He drink much to be considered a drunk though? undecided

Need I remind you that one Man's glutton is another man's healthy eater? undecided

Not because I think but because I know that the doctrines and traditions of men have nothing to do with the Truth of God, Jesus Christ, and this because Jesus Christ said so. undecided

Oh, God Himself has been my one and only Teacher, just as Jesus Christ declared it should be in His teachings and through the prophets. Jeremiah 31 vs 33 and then in Matthew 23 vs 8 -13. undecided

What matters more to you is that, though Jesus Christ never commanded any of your gatherings, His disciples did it? undecided

Poske95:
The contention is this......
Is smoking A Sin ?
Or
Is SMOKING sin?

Sin must be discerned spiritually.
Sin got into Lucifer...the rest is history

Anything not of God is unto sin.
Smoking is unholy.....

I did and it simply made me selfish, unholy.
.....then why become addicted?
It's because, addiction is sifted from the selfish plant.

May the truth set us free
Sin is not "spiritually" discerned. It is instead of laws made known to you by God through Jesus Christ. undecided

And since Jesus Christ never taught that smoking is unholy, it is dangerous to conclude thence that smoking is a sin. In fact by making such false claims , you might as well have spat straight into God's mouth. And there are curses that await all those who teach/spread their delusions and lies in the name of God. undecided

Brainwashed fellows who always take the word of pastors to be true.

Nothing enter through your mouth that defiles you, only that which come out from you that does, even a Cocaine sniffing is not a sin until your heart defiles you

The inspired scripture says in 2cor 7:1. That "we should cleanse ourselves of every defilement of flesh and spirit, being holy in Gods fear". If the
advise found in the above scripture is anything to go by, it means anything thing or substance that can affect our literal flesh should be rejected. If health professionals had warned against its damaging impact on our health , then it would be suicidal to still continue smoking. It constitutes a sin because we ignored Gods warning found in the above scripture. Moreso, if we die untimely due to smoking, its tantamount to suicide which God hates
Before all that Jesus Christ told that it is not what you eat or ingest that defiled you. undecided

So, you too smoke?

The kind of things you go about justifying atimes just baffles me. I wonder at this your own Christianity.

Who told you that I smoke? undecided

I have asthma...can't stand the stench of that marijuana bullsheet either...but one thing you will never see me do is try to add or remove from God's commandments even as far as sin is concerned. That level of sin comes complete with curses on those who do such and their worship of God. undecided


My "Christianity" is based on the exact teachings of Jesus Christ Himself, so it is not the strange one here. undecided

Open your Bible to read it for yourself so you can truly learn the Truth of the one you call God. He already told you all you need to know of sin.. and it is by knowing that Teuth that one can be set free of free and clutches of sin, even lying as far as sin is concerned. undecided

LOL, God as well never mentioned that you must have your bath and wash your mouth daily. I guess he also have to record in the Bible the process of making babes.

I guess it should have been part of the 10 commandments that it's bad to inhale generator fume.
are all these sins? Am talking about what is sin it seems you don't get the point of this talk.

You have to read that book with your eyes and years engaged so you are not easily fooled into believing lies instead. Jesus Christ said, "IF two or three are gathered in His name...", not "Two or Three must gather in His name...". undecided

Enough of the excuses. You would have done well not to include the highlighted in your concluding statements because what I presented was the Bible’s view on the matter. I’m in no way responsible for whether you respect the Bible or follow the counsel found in it so please next time know how to construct your sentences.

I’m still looking for either the OP or any other person to disprove the points I clearly laid earlier, so far it’s only “You’re wrong, You’re wrong” and making up excuses yet absolutely no one could put up a strong logical argument from the Bible that’s why I’ve been ignoring most of the petty comments.

“cleanse ourselves from all filthiness[or defilement] of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” —2Corinthians 7:1
And so that implies that we should not contaminate our bodies with harmful substances such as the above which you mentioned since they are lead cause of dreadful disease


I understand what you said and i was replying to your question... i said its not a bad thing if someone smokes but when it is too much more like an hobbie then it is filth just like the bible says... anything we consume into our body has its positives but when it gets too much or its becoming an addiction then it becomes filth... even drugs has amount you should take but when taken too much it becomes drug abuse which is filth to our body.
that my point
