I smoke (only Marijuana) for obvious reason(s) known to me.

You are not sinning bro as long as your marijuaja is taken for a good purpose n the quantity you smoke does not destroy your organs

But the problem is that many people easily cross the line from smoking moderately to heavy smoking.

So barbeque is a sin because it takes hot charcoal to make it happen

Bible said, everything! Forget the mode of preparation

I'm addressing the food aspect. You are not eating the hot coal or are you?

Isn't what is being barbequed that you are eating?

Or is it the marijuana or cigarettes food you take? If so, let it stay in you after inhaling for say 20minutes before you exhale or blow it out then
I don't think the smokers eat the cigarette too...Just do ur own and leave others

Finally smoking might not be a sin because i have seen Roman bishops smoking during cold weather

No, it is not...only Nigerians see it as a crime against God. Even your prophets were getting high on weed and seeing God.

Fast food destroys ur body too

Exactly my point.

When a habit becomes too much, it can destroy you...

Self servicing is a healthy habit some prole indulge in for medical reasons especially when they are single and at risk of having health issues as a result of lack of sex...

However if you indulge in sservice too much it becomes a destructive habit to you mentally and psychologically...

Same with eating and several other sinless acts that could be taken too far.

Smoking is not a sin in anyway but when you start smoking harmful substances then you have crossed the line.

Some Habits May Hinder Our Spiritual
Progress.
The harmful Effects of Smoking Happen
Very, Very, Slowly which is why most
Smokers do not see it until it is too late.

"You bring woe upon yourselves—which propels you into embodiment again and again in the ignorance of the senses, the human appetites, and desires of the outer self.

These appetites in the feeling nature of mankind are in themselves but an accumulation of energy which the individual through his thought and feeling has given a quality of one kind or another.

This misqualified energy, gathers a momentum through human expression and becomes habit.

HABIT is but energy specifically qualified and held focused for a time upon one objective.

"The sense appetites of former lives become the driving forces and habits of the next— keeping you slaves, bound to the chariot wheels of discord, lack, and necessity— whirling you through a maze of human problems and experiences of your own creation—compelling you to learn and obey the—'Law of the One'—'Love.'

I am afraid you are wrong in your conclusion. It is worse to assume a thing a sin, and tell others that it is so, when it is not. That is akin to adding to the commandments of God and there is a curse attached for those who do such and tell others such lies. undecided

Rather than leaving it up in the air, it would be wiser to learn the Truth of God which clearly detail for your learning what sin is and what is not sin. It is by knowing this Truth that you can be set free from slavery to sin by the Truth, the very teachings and commandments of Jesus Christ Himself. undecided

You are not meant to be the one who determines what is ok for you. Devote yourself to the pursuit of an intimate relationship with God by His Spirit. Then come back and tell us what you have learned about His preferences. This is the way someone said masturbation is not a sin. This generation is eager to go astray, so they seek out controversy. As for me, I don't do alcohol. I don't smoke. I don't womanise. These are my choices.
By the way, the bible says our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Don't defile that temple.

Yes!. Your body is the temple of God. Dont defile it.

Genesis 1:29

And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.

Genesis 9:3
Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.

1 Timothy 4:4-6
For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer. If you put these things before the brothers, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, being trained in the words of the faith and of the good doctrine that you have followed.

First question is, is it legal?, If the government says it is illegal then God can ask you to smoke, God is not a author of confusion, he said obey constituted authority.

Smoking is a sin not because of the plant but because of what it does to your brain, even the one that is legal, the manufacturer said and boldly written on it "smokers are liable to die young", and the bible doesn't condone murder of any kind, even suicide!

Finally, the bible say be vigilant! You can't be vigilant under the influence of weed!

My brother, how can the reasons be obvious but only to you? I dont think there is any religious harm in smoking jare...the associated health problems are the real contenders.

Lol! You saw that too.
I think English has killed more people than smoking.
Therefore, English language should be a sin too.

Keep receiving yourself.


We all die. But it's foolishness to go searching for your own death. Take care of your body. Don't inhale toxic. That should be common sense.

Some people would be surprised if a pastor is on dreadlocks. Does that make it a sin?

Aswearugaaad

No, it doesn't. But if it is remotely possible that seeing you smoking or in dreadlocks will make that brother lose faith then you'd be irresponsible to continue that way.

Bible says flee from every appearance of evil. This means if it looks bad, even if it's not, then don't do it.

Aswearugaaad

Your logic is faulty.
If the govt says going to church is illegal, would I have sinned against my creator if I went to church to worship him?

I like your submission but I just had to correct that notion of blind obedience. Bible says "obey your father and mother in the Lord", but if your parents ask you to do wrong should you still obey them? I believe the knowledge of right and wrong trumps all that and should guide you.

Am not a smoker and can never be. This is one of the hahits no man can lure me to.

However, I don't condemn those that smoke. But if the makers of the cigarette warns that it kills, then I will advise anyone indulging in it to stay away.

Also, if God gave man every plants for food, then how u process and eat it I don't think is an issue.

Am not free from sin. But any food or edible substance that offset your thinking faculty, thereby making you do things without your own human mind, is as bad as commiting sin. Furthermore, any food you know is harmful to your own body and you continue taking, thereby suffering your own body and soul which is the temple of your creator in form of holy Spirit, is also considered as source of sin. Because is harmful to your body and you are adamantly forcing it on your body, therefore you are commiting sin against your own body.
NB: not everything the Bible has to teach you, the Bible is there to guide you on some. God has given you the knowledge to know between good and bad, use that knowledge.

Why do white people smoke? Their cold weather , if your don't smoke there to keep warm you will be a coffee or tea addict...or a whiskey and gin enthusiast. even priest (who are firstly humans ) do smoke/drink to keep the cold away.

So to me smoking was a necessity to those who live in cold regions .
But it is actually CAPITALISM that spread cigarettes all over the world,....they tell you it's dangerous but IT IS LEGAL TO PRODUCE AND CONSUME......which kind of people encourage people to poison yourself as far as it's profitable to them except Capitalists.

Someone still smokes and expect to remain sane.

Not different from people wearing suit in hot weather.
