Cnach:I understood His point and pointed out that it is wrong to follow these things blindly. It is essential to know what is sin from that which is not so one can walk boldly and firmly in these things.

emzynuel1:I understand his point however it is wrong to sit on the fences where these things are concerned. That is why Jesus Christ called put that we should learn and KNOW the Truth so the Truth can set us free from sin and all its chains. Walking around not really knowing what sin is and what is not sin is a life lived in bondage to sin, do you not agree?

Akuruoulo:Did you know that food also kills? Yes, if you unknowingly give peanuts to someone with food allergies, the person might die from it. But guess what? God did not make the giving of peanuts sin, so what gives?
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by samydo(m): 6:22pm On Apr 26|
My dear a word is enough for the wise, I hope u are not waiting for God to come and give descriptive description of what is food and what is not if yes I guess u should start going about eating every green leaf u see while you wait for his description
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Kobojunkiee: 6:41pm On Apr 26|
samydo: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.
The same Jesus Christ also tells you that you will drink poison and it will not harm you.

Mizessy:I used the example of a friend asking me for money to purchase marijuana so that we would not fall into the zone you have picked on there. But since you want to explore this, that's fine by me.
You may not know this but one of the commands given by Jesus Christ to all of His followers stipulates that if a neighbor asks you for anything you have, you are not to deny the request, but give.
I found a similar reference to the command in the book of Proverbs as well.
In response to your claim that showing love would be to reject the request, the Truth of God, Jesus Christ, declares instead that you are wrong. Even in the case, the request is for poison, you are commanded, by God Himself, to give it to the one asking.
Never assume that your opinion and your understanding amounts to God's law or understanding.

lekki1444:It is not a sin, even against your own body!
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Akuruoulo(m): 10:50pm On Apr 26|
Kobojunkiee:This ur post makes no sense bro. U said UNKNOWINGLY.
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Kobojunkiee: 11:01pm On Apr 26|
Akuruoulo:Well, unknowingly implying you did not give the peanuts intending to kill him, that is!
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Akuruoulo(m): 11:03pm On Apr 26|
Kobojunkiee:Ya bro. Thats why it can't be counted as sin
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Kobojunkiee: 11:20pm On Apr 26|
Where did Jesus Christ declare that if you "unknowingly" kill someone, it will not be counted as sin against you?
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Akuruoulo(m): 11:26pm On Apr 26|
Kobojunkiee:AND DID GOD CALL IT A SIN ?
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Kobojunkiee: 11:29pm On Apr 26|
Akuruoulo:You tell me since you are the one who declared that it is not a sin to unintentionally harm or kill someone.
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by chatinent(m): 11:51pm On Apr 26|
At least, I'm glad you want to know the right from the wrong.
It is wrong.
If you value life, and the creator of life, you wouldn't want to damage it.
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Maximus85(m): 1:56am On Apr 27|
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.
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by MaxInDHouse(m): 6:16am On Apr 27|
When JWs comes to their door to preach and teach them they call us all sort of names, but listen to someone living in a society where marijuana is banned now asking if it's a sin or not!
Please I need a spiritual/Biblical answer to this question, cos in a society like ours, most Christians tends to judge and condemn smokers.
Surely he is not interested in distinguishing right from wrong, what he wants is support from others to challenge the authorities.
Fela Anikulapo is dead, otherwise this OP would have being one of his loyal disciples!
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by almarthins(m): 7:12am On Apr 27|
U r just beating about, it is a pity.
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Kobojunkiee: 7:15am On Apr 27|
almarthins:Beating about what?
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Akuruoulo(m): 7:17am On Apr 27|
Kobojunkiee:Thats a simple logic
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Kobojunkiee: 7:21am On Apr 27|
Akuruoulo:God had warned man so many times never to learn on his own understanding .I.e. your logic. So tell me exactly what you mean by suggesting that your logic is God's logic here?
I don't care for your logic but for God's Word in this and everything else so please show evidence that God backs your logic or accept say your logic no even come close to making sense where God dey!
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by almarthins(m): 7:32am On Apr 27|
I see why many will be shocked on judgement day. The devil is really having a field day with ur kind. Keep up the work! One day sm will tell us that he saw Jesus smoking Indian hemp, and another person will back it up with scriptures. And some simps will be swallow it Hook line and sinker. Very soon some one will tell us taking Cocaine is allowed and God permits it by turning the scripture upside down to suit ur mind.
Let's go back to the garden of Eden, God created all the good tree fruits but there was one in the same garden. U know the story. Why is that particular fruit tree bad? You see if u interprete the Bible using psychology, philosophy and wisdom of men, you will just be compounding and embolden urself indirectly to fight God in blinding ignorance.
You had beta pray that God should open ur eyes.
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Akuruoulo(m): 7:34am On Apr 27|
Kobojunkiee:OGA IF SOMEONE GAVE U BISQUIT THAT IS HARMFULL TO UR HEALTH UNKNWNLY, ITS LEFT FOR YOU TO NO EAT IT. IF U EAT IT, THEN DNT BLAME ANYONE. EVEN GOD WILL NEVER PUNISH THE GIVER BECUS HE EXTENDED A GOOD GESTURE.
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Kobojunkiee: 7:37am On Apr 27|
almarthins:The problem with folks like you is even when the Truth of God is set before you, you simply ignore it so you can continue rambling about how you know better and how it has to be your way or hell for those who don't agree with you.
I made known to you, severally mind you, that Jesus Christ said instead that what defiles you cannot be ingested by you in any way of form yet you continue to harp about how someone who smokes or thinks smoking is not a sin has to cross paths with Hell. Na you be God now?
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Kobojunkiee: 7:38am On Apr 27|
Akuruoulo:Ok, I hear you!
So where God come tell you say He will never punish the giver because he extended a good gesture?
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by chatinent(m): 7:44am On Apr 27|
Well, I kept wondering what the obvious reasons were.
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Akuruoulo(m): 8:47am On Apr 27|
Kobojunkiee:SAY IT PLAIN. THE GIVER OF WHAT ?
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by emzynuel1: 9:59am On Apr 27|
Kobojunkiee:If the truth is easy to comprehend why are do people attend different churches in search of dat same truth which u tink it easy to find
Certain times we ourself can't even recognize wat is a sin sef
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by AllenSpencer: 1:26pm On Apr 27|
Quote where the Bible was turned upside down.
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by scarr: 2:46pm On Apr 27|
So because the effect outside is less than inside it means it isn't still dangerous?
PS: I don't know either the OP or any other poster talkless of being my friend
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Kobojunkiee: 6:07pm On Apr 27|
emzynuel1:But your very churches are themselves built on the doctrines and traditions of men, what Jesus Christ called lies, meant to deceive and blind those who attend them.
The truth is easy to comprehend, it is just that those who have darkness in them can't stand it.
There is nothing hidden about sin... God made it clear to us all what constitutes sin and what does not, and He calls for all to trust and obey His His commandments in this. However, the darkness rejects His truth at every corner.
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by Kobojunkiee: 6:13pm On Apr 27|
Akuruoulo:Let's recall where this all started here.
|Re: Is It A Sin For A Christian To Smoke? by emzynuel1: 7:20pm On Apr 27|
Kobojunkiee:If different churches do preach the same ruth
Y are dere different churches
