God has worries beyond marijuana and hashish. God is love and he trusts you to do the right thing. For some people marijuana/hashish can be very harmfull; for other people it adds no problems to their lives. God gave you a 'free will'. The choice is yours. Choose wisely.

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.

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

I have never smoked Marijuana but I'll tell you how I feel about it. Most of my friends smoke it. I'd rather be around someone who smokes pot than someone that drinks and I do drink occasionally.

My opinion is smoking Marijuana is not a sin in itself because it is natural. But having said that I would say you are responsible for your actions and 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. They use your money to arm themselves and kill others over turf. You fund them and you will be held accountable for that sin.

Now if you grow your own then thats another story. You are not funding murderers if you grow your own.

BTW, King Solomon, the wisest man ever who ever lived, condoned self medication with alcohol for depression. I don't think that he would disagree with a less deadly/harmful substance.

His wisdom was his gift from God, so, thinking like a Christian, I would have to say Solomon would fully condone marijuana.

According to some, it is actually a plant of wisdom found on Solomon's grave.

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!!
 Quoting: xxterrencexx 2481038

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Here is my take: Smoking marijuana is a sin only because it is illegal. Breaking the law IS a sin, unless it conflicts with God's law. Which abstaining from drugs does NOT.

If it were legal, I don't believe it would be a sin. As long as it were used responsibly, and in moderation. Just like alcohol.

But the fact remains that for now, it is against the law.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2536981


Um... eating the corn or healing on the sabbath was also against the laws of men was it not?

Anything that impairs your health is a concern, so you could ask if fast food, alcohol, cigarettes/cigars, etc. Moderation is most likely the key to any vice in keeping your soul-of-man "TEMPLE" healthy. Sin, is a separation from the spirit. So, do what it takes to stay connected.

Here we go again - sin being defined by man's laws. So, if you fall short of the glory of a man-made law, you have sinned and shall burn in hell forever. It's worth repeating this because I said it before - Man's laws do not define the limits of God or sin. If man's laws define sin, then it was not a sin for the Germans to gas Jews because the bible says that only murder is a sin - not killing - and murder is defined as the unlawful killing of another human being - and if the German government approved the killing of Jews, then it wasn't murder. You need to not bootstrap mans laws to God. Go forth and smoke in peace. God made the plant, not man. If he didn't want you to smoke it, he would have made it make you sick.

Personally I think that many times, while trying to lead a christian life. We come upon questions like this that we have a hard time getting answered. The way I try to deal with them; If you have to question whether it is a sin or not. It probably is, and its better not to do it. This is my personal opinion. I also grew up in a christian family and smoked, partied, drank. And at the age of 19 turned my life around. Stay strong!

smoking weed is not a sin.
the real sin is not using "weed" for more than a buzz,its a renewable resource. longest fibers grown (replace trees for paper),rope,can be refined into cloth as nice as silk!

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Marijuana is a drug and is mentioned in the old testament as "hemp" used for rope. That's what it is meant to be used for, not making people intoxicated. It is a poisonous weed. The practice of using drugs, prescription and marijuana included is mentioned several times in the bible, but I specifically want to point out Galatians 5:19. The word "sorcery" is translated in English as "drug" or more specifically, "pharmaceutical." The passage clearly defines it as a "lust of the flesh." It is inconsistent with the life of Christ and the progression of Christian growth. It is a setback and hindrance to living in the fullness of God, not to mention the strain that it puts on the body. It forces the body to fight for normalcy just like other drugs do, raising the metabolism and therefore, shortening the life span. It is also defined as debauchery which is also condemned is the New Testament. Do a study on the word "sorcery in the Old Testament and you will see that it is inconsistent with the laws and relationship with God. It is a practice of unbelievers and those who do not trust in God. While it seems to users to enhance their relationship with God, it is actually a deviation from pure worship of God. It is akin to mixing of different religious practices which ruins one's testimony because any glory that a user could gives to God really belongs to something else (marijuana), or God plus marijuana, but not solely to God. We must give credit where credit is due. If the Lord is God, serve him only. If something else is your God, serve it. You can't have both. The using of drugs has become a God in itself. Many marijuana users will attest that it is their religious practice. Jesus said that in end times, many would come in his name and say they are Him. I perceive that marijuana is just one of those "false Christ," because it takes the place of God in so many peoples lives. I hope people will take this message to heart and stop practicing sorcery, ruining their testimonies, and causing others to stumble, and start practicing the faith that they claim. If you truly do believe in Jesus, you can live happily without drugs.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Nowhere does the Bible forbid the usage of marijuana. If people will use arguments that the Bible forbids an altered state of mind, then one could argue than any pill is forbidden, or for instance not getting enough sleep (subsequently alters your state of mind by lack of care; use this reasoning to answer a fool according to their folly)

The main concept appears to be if the usage of the drug can be done in good conscience and can benefit the person using it. I would not recommend a young person smoke marijuana, it seems ideal for a person who is already developed both physically and mentally. If the drug does not benefit you, than I would not recommend it.

Most Christian arguments against it are anti-intellectual and inconsistent with their other beliefs when examined closely and applying their reasoning consistently.

Yes it's a sin. It's of this world, which means it's of the flesh. Will He burn you for eternity for smoking it? No. But if you put it above Christ for your source of inner peace, and it becomes a habit, that's something to be concerned about. I'd say it's all right as long as you do it sparingly. Just know that there is a better high than any drug can ever give you. And it's fo' free.

I think if you are a daily smoker, marijuana will give you a sense of awesomeness and nobody can mess with you. And after every high you will be a little bit weaker in faith, but when you stop you can get back at your normal state. Hopefully it didn´t took more than 4 years to stop or take a long break, because it can have an effect.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
I can give you a bunch of Scriptures that will tend to make it sinful.

I can give you a bunch of Scriptures that will tend to make it not sinful.

For example, one scripture verse says that those who believe what they are doing is sin--to that person it IS sin if they persist and do something that in their heart is wrong. In the same group of verses, it calls a person WEAK if they ABSTAIN from something. The key is also in the same group of verses--we cannot judge one or the other.

Speaking practically, I can say that if what you are doing is in MODERATION ("do all things in moderation"), then an EFFORT has to be made to achieve that end. In this case, the object and aim of that person is the key to whether this is detrimental or beneficial.

Also speaking practically, most use of pot involves the unhealthy and unnatural act of SMOKING which is DEFINITELY a detriment to the body. Even more than cigarettes, the black, tarry substance that clings to your lung tissue contains a variety of carcinogens that are unhealthy. In addition, strong explosive coughing resulting from smoking can cause a variety of problems which don't show up for a long time, but when it does--its usually lifetime. Hernias are a common problem not identified with chronic smoking of pot--but they ARE connected. Holding your breath for as long as possible and then expelling what is in your lungs deprives you of the oxygen that you NEED to function normally. You CAN function, but that ability will decrease over the years and the result is a lower quality of life.

Again speaking practically, you AUTOMATICALLY bring yourself into less than desirable "dealers" and "pushers" whose sole aim is to deprive you of your money and will lie to you and call their product the best when it is not and seek, in many instances, to get you to experiment with other VERY addictive substances like Cocaine, Opiates, speed, etc. While true that "society" forces people into these situations because of the law, even without outside pressure, there will be those who will still PUSH something that you will come back for many times--regardless of whether it is detrimental or not.

Speaking spiritually, FEELING should never be the criteria for your relationship with God. God says: "come, let us reason together". You have to admit that being high is not the best condition for your reasoning powers. Short-term memory loss virtually negates your reasoning process. This is not to mean that you LOSE your reason, you can just lose your train of thought and go off in different directions and often digress. If we really BELIEVE that the Word of God is ACTUALLY God speaking to us, not only is it difficult to read without losing your train of thought, you can miss the point altogether and NOT see a vital thing that the Lord is trying to teach us TO SAVE OUR LIFE. This results in lost opportunities, and even in GRIEVING THE HOLY SPIRIT which is the ONLY unpardonable sin.

Another vital area of problem is the STUMBLINGBLOCK that we put before others--whether caused by you or by them. You can be FAULTLESS and still place a stumblingblock before others and give cause for their wrongly seeing, and losing THEIR opportunities. We ARE our brother's keepers, especially if we claim to be Christians. Their blood is on our hands if we give cause to apostasy or unbelief.

Not least, is the cost. With some, they could purchase a home or a car or the clothes on our backs with the money spent on drugs. Even a moderate smoker can take the food out of their own children's mouths. A chronic smoker usually ends up with nothing. The quality of life suffers for everybody around them--simply by depriving them of all the things they COULD HAVE with the money spent on a high that only benefits the user. In a very real sense, you are breaking the Golden Rule, one of the two commandments that cover all the other commandments--Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. In another sense, the other great commandment "love God with all your heart", takes second place to selfish indulgence of God's treasury. Again, depending on your point of view, you could be sinning in every point of every law of life, health and love. Kinda depends on your point of view. BUT, you must remember one vital truth--you cannot trust yourself--a dog will return to its own vomit.
The TRUTH is stranger than FICTION.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
smoking weed, cigaretts, cigars,or any such thing does not has a thing to so with your salvation. It's not an transgression, and if anyone says that its not righteous, the laws of righteousness is in duet.ch.5 and ch.6. if you read both of those chapters it will clearly state the rules of righteousness.(period) It is unhealthy for you so for health sake you shouldnt use it.if it compromise your better judgement you shouldnt use it. I know plenty of really zealous people who love our creator and smoke cigaretts. that doesnt mean that they are sinners or i personally dont look at them different. Let him without sin cast the first stone and i bet the one castn the stone is afflicted to. I hope that help bro,peace
