The human body has Cannabinoid receptors hard wired right into it.

In other words folks, your body is hard wired to receive what this plant gives.

read it;

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

It is a cure for certain types of cancer and many, many other things.

read it:

[link to www.icmag.com]


If used as a medicine, I think it is certainly beneficial. But, like almost anything, I believe it can be abused, and as such, such abuses should be avoided.

People with brain injuries can be free from symptoms, like chronic pain. insomnia, severe mood swings etc. The plant causes neurogenesis of the hippocampus. (heals the brain)

read it: [link to www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

If you have ever lived with, or live with someone who lives with chronic pain daily, you can see how this plant is truly a blessing and not a curse. But be warned not to abuse it.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
First off before anyone reads this! I am a christian and Jesus is my Savior! I am sorry if you don't share my beliefs and i don't mean to offend anybody! Just looking for an answer and if you are not a christian you can still read this and answer! Thank you everyone!

Is smoking marijuana a sin? First off let me tell you a little about myself! I am 22 years old and I love Jesus with all my heart, hes the reason i live and have the urge to continue to live! I am patiently waiting for his return to gather us up to be with him! Over the last 2 years of my life I made a complete U turn, basically I was clubbing 3-4 times a week, having pre-marital sex, getting smashed 3-4 times a week (goes along with the clubbing) you know basically the life that we are all told is the fun and cool life to live! I was born into the church and attended my whole life but never took it seriously at all, Just basically thought o well if this Jesus guy is real then ill just go to church once a week and be ok! I thought i was safe but was really living no better than anybody else and not being an example to others. I started smoking week at 19 years old and would say i smoke about 1-2 joints a day (usually at night cuz it relaxes me and i like to munch out lol) So basically to cut this story short, took a step back at my life and changed it! I started reading the bible for the first time in my life at 20 years old and it changed my life! I felt the spirit of god and it was the greatest feeling ever! I got baptized about 6 months ago and it was great, I always put it off because i was embarrassed of going to the front and getting baptized in front of a church attendance of around 500 people! So basically through this whole experience and even though i have been raised in the church my whole life and knew almost every story in the bible I found my newly found faith and Found Jesus my savior!

I live my life to the best of my ability and have cut off basically everything in my life that was sinful! including the hardest thing Sex! Keep in mind i am in a 4 year relationship with my girlfriend and I wasn't living as a christian for about 3 of those years! so it was very hard to cut the sex out until marriage! It was hard but it felt wrong and i knew i was sinning intentionally!

So to the question! I still smoke weed, i enjoy having a joint before bed and i dont feel like i am sinning when i am doing this at all! God created all things good and i see nothing wrong with marijuana!

pretend the media never existed, and you never heard of marijuana before! If you were to see somebody roll up this plant and smoke it would you look at them and be like o my you sinner! how could you smoke that plant! I see nothing wrong with it as long as you use it properly, the bible states nothing is wrong with it and it doesn't affect my life negative at all!

Nobody can give me a concrete answer and I am always left wondering and praying for god to let me know if this is a sin! please help! any fellow Christians out there with any thoughts on this? thank you!!

John 4:46
Once more he visited Cana in Galilee, where he had turned the water into wine. And there was a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum.

1 Timothy 5:23
Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses.

So, wine, though a intoxicating, is not dangerous in it self. However, over-indulgence is to be avoided. Moderation is of utmost importance.



Judges 13:24
What sorrow for those who are heroes at drinking wine and boast about all the alcohol they can hold.

KEY THING! MODERATION!

Hebrews 13:17
Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you



On the issue of Marijuana, trusting I have the guidance of the LORD, it is a conditional thing.

Is it illegal where you are currently living to engage in it?

If so, do not engage, if you do, do not be mad at the Most High if you end up in jail or fined when caught. There are many other states, cities, and countries in which the usage and growth of marijuana is not considered illegal. Play by the rules.

Do you gain peace and serenity when you engage?

Some do. Some do not. The Holy Spirit will let you know for a number of reasons whether you should partake or not. One may need to abstain for the mental clarity one may need for a job, school, parenting, etc. Pay attention.


It is a nice wonderful thing our CREATOR and THE WORD OF GOD have made for us to experience. Responsibility is mandatory for some, if not all, of these things. Moderation is key.

The true evil are the oppresive powers of those that would lie about marijuana, and it's use for over 5000 years so that they could try to hold back it's healing nature... just so that super-rich corporations can make more profit.
I dont mean everything I say to be literal. I just like to throw around ideas, and play devil's advocate.

I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
I think that you really know the answer to this question, but I will give you the short and long version.

1. Short version. Yes, smoking marijuana is a sin. The definition of "sin" is "missing the mark". Using any mild-altering substance (alcohol, pot, any other non-prescribed medication) is altering your brain chemistry and by definition "a sin".


2. Long version. Why is altering my brain chemistry missing the mark? Doing anything that harms your body is missing the mark. Your body is the temple of Christ.

When did my body become the temple of Christ?
Under the old testament, animals were sacrificed for mankind's "missing the mark or sin". People brought animals to the temple and the priest went into the "holy of holies" and sacrificed these animals to God so that mankind could be forgiven. (OLD TESTAMENT WAY)

Under the new testament, Christ did away with the sacrifice process and BECAME our eternal sacrifice, for our past sins, our present sins and our future sins. So we went from having animal sacrifice to Christ being our eternal sacrifice. (that is why he had to die on the cross).

Now, since we don't sacrifice animals anymore, Christ also did away with the idea that we had to go to the holy of holies temples and pray through a priest. With Christ, our body now BECOMES the temple and Christ lives IN us. So because Christ is now residing IN us -- we have to keep the temple as clean as possible. Christ also did away with the idea that we have to pray through priests -- now we have a direct line from our prayer directly to God through Christ -- not through priests.

So -- the reason you cannot smoke pot, smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol, or anything else detrimental to your health is because your body, once you accept Christ as your savior, now becomes a holy temple and should not be defiled.

Having said all that -- I think you already knew this answer but you wanted to see it in print.

Here is your sign.

In love.
 Quoting: aviatrix


Very close to what I was thinking.

I am a Christian who smokes marijuana. I believe that it is a sin because smoking marijuana harms your body. You are supposed to keep your body as healthy as possible. God gave it to you, you are supposed to respect it.

Now, I actually think of marijuana as a herb rather than a drug and I believe that alcohol is worse than marijuana but the Bible mentions that even Jesus drank wine (but of course, Jesus wasn't a drunk).

I believe that marijuana does have health benefits and is a wonder-plant given to us by God to use for things like hemp clothing, eating the seeds (the seeds are very nutritious) etc, and I believe that the plant could solve many of the worlds problems but being someone who smokes it, I know that smoking it does damage your lungs. You should hear me coughing in the mornings. Damaging my body like that isn't good.

Also, and this is going to sound very New-Agey but I am a born-again Christian with a new-age and wiccan background but what I am about to say is true. Marijuana, as well as alcohol and other drugs lower your psychic defenses and attract negative entities (demons?) You need to be aware of that next time you get stoned.

It damages your body because you are an ignorant user. Besides that point, you know what also damages your body? Breathing. Because oxygen ages your body, which is damaging. You want to stop breathing as well? What a retarded argument if ever..."it's bad for me", well so is smog, cellphone radiation, wireless internet radiation, television, movies(far, far worse since these are usually devices of indoctrination)...besides that, marijuana is GOOD for your lungs if you smoke it pure, once or twice a week. It CLEANS your lungs(amongst other beneficial effects).


The part about the new age stuff, lowering psychic defenses...what are you on about? If you believe in Christ you needn't worry about something as non existent as "psychic defenses", and other nonsense new age beliefs:

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
I have had some good conversations about God and Christianity while high. In these situations, dope lubricated the conversation and made people much more willing to talk about spiritual issues. I believe that the Holy Spirit was present in those conversations. So God used the weed in that time and place to soften some hearts to more responsive to the Gospel.

The same can be said for conversations I have had over a couple pints at a pub, and a good cigar. All vices according to some, but wonderful social lubricants.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
my view is, that we should never do anything that compromises our minds. Doing it every night before bed seems a bit excessive. Anyway, when something effects your MIND, you are no longer in control of your senses, and when YOU are not in control, Satan moves in. That is why many sins are committed under the influence of alcohol or drugs (including pot.)

Besides, remember that after you've smoked a joint, you are useless to yourself and others. You will not be able to react as fast physically, nor think as fast, and you are much more likely to suffer a tragedy because of this. It might be something as small as the last phone call you missed from a friend who is dead the next day, or it may be as big as not smelling smoke and your house burning down. Maybe you let your cat out and forget to let it in, and it gets hits in the road. These things happen every day all because someone drank, smoked pot or took some pills. And it's all so needless.

Personally I feel it's wrong simply because of it's intoxicating nature. If it's okay to smoke weed then it's okay to consume alcohol, even huff glue/paint thinner, or whatever. "Oh, just as long as you do it in moderation, like rape, but only rape in moderation." (please pardon my black & white example, if one thing is wrong it's just as wrong as something else).

But seriously. If you're really concerned about it and are genuinely sincere towards God - then you should set out a fleece before Him. What this means (if you or anyone else is not familiar) is to pray to God/Jesus and ask him to show you if Smoking Weed is okay or is it dangerous (spiritually). And don't lean on the idea of it being okay in moderation. It's either wrong or it's not. You should form your question in a very specific way, and ask to be shown a confirmation to your question also in a very specific way so that when you receive it you'll KNOW that that is the answer. And remember to be humble and thankful to God.

I hope you receive the answer you're looking for. Don't look to man for the answers when it comes to the things that could depend on the destiny of your soul. Seek God!

Poorly thought out? You are completely nuts. That is THE main belief by the majority of God fearing Americans. AND, it doesn't matter if you have a "friend" who grows, yeah, everybody's got a "friend" - they are all selling to people, and show me ONE who is only selling pot. Yes, the majority of these "little guys" are all part of the chain that destroys tens of thousands of young lives across the country. We left that whole "the dealer" is not the problem mentality back in the 80's.

Also, OP, I'd like to point out that the idea of "rendering unto Caesar that which is Caesar's, and unto God that which is God's" is only one supporting scripture for the basic Christian belief that a person should obey the laws in the land he is in. If you are doing something that you could get ARRESTED for, that is not a Christian thing to do.

The only problem we have now in America, is we have an evil ruler who is making evil laws. In some cases then, there may be MORAL justification for breaking those laws - say for instance standing holding a sign in protest where you are not supposed to stand, or perhaps a much bigger issue. There is no MORAL justification to break the laws of the land in your situation however.

Now what Jesus basically had to say about this is that it is not what goes into you that's bad...It's what comes out of you...In other words...Your offenses...How you offend others...Be careful what you say.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Colosians 2:20

Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, 21(Touch not; taste not; handle not; 22Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men? 23Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.

!Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
 Quoting: xxterrencexx 2481038

...if you buy Marijuana from a dealer then you are sinning. The reason is because you are responsible for putting money into the hands of murdering swine.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2505940


That's pretty poorly thought out reasoning and part of the problem. I have known 'dealers' that grow and mind their own and just want to hook up a few friends and maked some cash. The reason 'buying from a dealer' would be considered a 'sin' is because you would be braking a law, not because the person you buy from is part of a murderous criminal network.
 Quoting: morvis


Poorly thought out? You are completely nuts. That is THE main belief by the majority of God fearing Americans. AND, it doesn't matter if you have a "friend" who grows, yeah, everybody's got a "friend" - they are all selling to people, and show me ONE who is only selling pot. Yes, the majority of these "little guys" are all part of the chain that destroys tens of thousands of young lives across the country. We left that whole "the dealer" is not the problem mentality back in the 80's.

Also, OP, I'd like to point out that the idea of "rendering unto Caesar that which is Caesar's, and unto God that which is God's" is only one supporting scripture for the basic Christian belief that a person should obey the laws in the land he is in. If you are doing something that you could get ARRESTED for, that is not a Christian thing to do.

The only problem we have now in America, is we have an evil ruler who is making evil laws. In some cases then, there may be MORAL justification for breaking those laws - say for instance standing holding a sign in protest where you are not supposed to stand, or perhaps a much bigger issue. There is no MORAL justification to break the laws of the land in your situation however.

Where I live, most dealers only sell pot, and it is all grown locally. This is not destroying anyone's life. Prohibition destroys lives, pot doesn't.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Its not about what youre doing exactly...whether its the gonj or alcohol. The problem is when whatever youre doing takes your focus away from God. If u can smoke & maintain a strong christian relationship then its probably fine. The only contradicting issue is that its illegal & the bible tells us to obey our laws...even tho theyre mans laws...I smoke enough to where people dont even know Im high a lot of times & it doesnt affect other areas of my life. Hope this helps

Please sit and listen to this deeply. The answers to all things are in yourself. Only you can answer the right way for yourself. Cast out doubt on yourself. True religious freedom comes from within.

Does it produce seeds? Yes
Are these seeds a food source? Yes(in fact perfectly balanced for our needs.)
King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

But the law is against it
I Timothy 4:1-3
“1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.”
It is a plant so eating it or its seeds are not a sin even if you get high.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Smoking/using Marijuana or using Hemp is most definitely NOT a SIN.

Any Christian that tells you it is a sin is in point of fact SATAN, SATANIC and EVIL.

RUN from them as fast and as far as you can.
They are pure EVIL.

resist
