Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
your body is the temple after you have truly been saved, and also, if you have questions be sure to ask a preacher that does not base his and others religion on "i think", " i believe" and such foolishness. those who oppose the gospel have a log in their eye and dont realize that sin destroys. so do not listen to them. be sure that your preacher backs everything with a bible verse. have fun and know that there is three steps to salvation. 1 is hide sin, which is where those heathens are. step 2 is to confess with your mouth out of utmost sincerity that you have sinned and deserve hell for what you have so foolishly done and asking as him into your heart and to change your heart. step 3 is to conquer the sins by asking jesus to help take care of them. be sure not to trade a "big sin" for a "small sin" by saying stuff like " oh well, atleast -- is better than -- because step three is way better. i am 16 and i have had trouble with masterbation since 3rd grade. i tried the "trade" idea by saying "oh well, atleast its better than sex." and i soon realized that if you lust over somone, then it equates to sexual immorality which equates to adultry. some may check their dictionary and think i am disproven but the dictionary and the bible have different deffinitions for some words. and i have came accross alcohol and weed. i have been drunk and have "blacked out" and did not like the experience. i thought i was in hell while i was "blacked out". i hated the hangover and it was 4th grade. i have tried weed and got stoned 3 times. from 6th - 8th. and i hated the experience. in 6th i commited adultry with another girl who although was not married, i felt heavy condemption. i think when in 5th, i admited my sinfull condition, but afterword continued t o sin. but now in 9th, i truly got saved merely 3 to 4 months ago. and the reason being was sin. i was having a biblical discussion with my friend and he told me that we must love while i disagreed. so i beted him that i would read the bible and prove him wrong. i was caught up in self righteousness and started reading and listening to the preacher on the radio, so i confessed withsincerely, and thus jesus is in me, i can sense wickedness likee a briar bush. and it turns out my friend wasnt saved and we are drifting appart. but many people say that god dont answer their prayers, well, first off you have to reach past step 2, and then, praying to fullfill a want is not a prayer. "please fix my xbox lord" wrong type of prayer

you must pray for needs. god supports the needs of HIS CHILDREN! god is the alfa and the omega! he knows all secrets and all there is to know. i do not misuse his name by saying god d** and oh my f***in' god! he is notto blame for any sin. it is against his nature to sin. satan is the one to blame and the one who created evil. yes, god created satan but he knew what would happen before it happened. consiter that it is in human nature to sin and that is the reason god dont see us in visible person. we are fire and the lord our god is water. when you combine the two, the water puts the fire out. god wanta to give us a chance and many people abuse that chance. and god will take care of HIS CHILDREN'S needs. he dont care for those who plunge into darkness! he cares for men, and not little boys so to speak. and you must forgive to be forgivn." and what about dinosaurs from millions of years ago?" some may ask. but the bible gives details of the behemoth and the leviathan and the descriptions given were verry descriptive. and yes, some bibles have quotes to the side saying hipo, or crock. but check out the description for yourself. scientists carbondate, but they werent there to see the dinosaurs. and evolution is fone, god created us! the gospell shows you how to live, science at most suggests. those sinners, if you are saying "no one is perfect" then read what jesus said." we are to be perfect even as perfect as the heavenly father himself". and those of you christians, check your foundations and make sure yours is atop a rock so it does not fall when floods fill. christianity without morallity is an illusion. zcompare sin to dark and gods way (the only righteousness) to light!

written with love,

I have not read all the pages, yet...but...

I believe it is only a sin if you put weed before God..family, etc..when it starts controlling your life and you feel you MUST have it, then it is a problem...remember, moderation...drinking wine was mentioned in the Bible..unless it was excessive(alcoholics)..

in other words, if weed becomes your God, then yes, you might have a problem..see what I am saying.?? ;)

that is an "i believe" you must be carefull with such things. you must not do it if it is illeagle, remember, if you are in the united states, that is a dederal law and it would not be wise to risk it for weed. and if i need rest, i will not drink or smoke or shoot or swallow anything, i will remain complely sober and take a nap or kick back and watch tube or read the holy bible . and that event you speek of was authorized by jesus, you had better ask for his authority to do so. and, it was wine and not hard liquer or weed. if you dont read the bible much, its like falling asleep while running a chainsaw, verry foolish and might hinder your chance to live. i am not going to kill my brain cells over a temptation, we are to strive to be perfect in the sight of god, if you are in disbelief, then perhaps you should read or atleast try to lead more, my friend.

Yep.

In christian context, consuming cannabis is not a sin. Jesus and his disciples used large amount of cannabis on a daily basis.

quote
Jesus w as almost certainly a cannabis user and an early proponent of the medicinal properties of the drug, according to a study of scriptural texts published this month. The study suggests that Jesus and his disciples used the drug to carry out miraculous healings.
The anointing oil used by Jesus and his disciples contained an ingredient called kaneh-bosem which has since been identified as cannabis extract, according to an article by Chris Bennett in the drugs magazine, High Times, entitled Was Jesus a Stoner? The incense used by Jesus in ceremonies also contained a cannabis extract, suggests Mr Bennett, who quotes scholars to back his claims.

"There can be little doubt about a role for cannabis in Judaic religion," Carl Ruck, professor of classical mythology at Boston University said.

Referring to the existence of cannabis in anointing oils used in ceremonies, he added: "Obviously the easy availability and long-established tradition of cannabis in early Judaism _ would inevitably have included it in the [Christian] mixtures."

Mr Bennett suggests those anointed with the oils used by Jesus were "literally drenched in this potent mixture _ Although most modern people choose to smoke or eat pot, when its active ingredients are transferred into an oil-based carrier, it can also be absorbed through the skin".

Quoting the New Testament, Mr Bennett argues that Jesus anointed his disciples with the oil and encouraged them to do the same with other followers. This could have been responsible for healing eye and skin diseases referred to in the Gospels.

"If cannabis was one of the main ingredients of the ancient anointing oil _ and receiving this oil is what made Jesus the Christ and his followers Christians, then persecuting those who use cannabis could be considered anti-Christ," Mr Bennett concludes.

So you so called christians, beware of the judement day, you do not want to be anti-christ.

Well said. You are correct. I do actually read and search the Word, often. I said, " I believe" so that no one misinterpreted it as gospel. Everyone must walk their own path towards the Lord.

I also know the Bible says
kjv-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.gen1:29

so, I believe, your heart holds the answer..the body is a temple and everything you do to it and everything you put in it can either defile or strengthen it...
depending on your reason and your relationship with God, the choice to smoke weed and the purpose for it is between an individual and the Lord.

Thus, those who depend on substances to get through the day or to escape reality are opening themselves up to the evil one.
Someone who smokes a bit to relieve the pain of cancer or migraines and who do it in moderation, have a justifiable reason to do so..BUT, a person must search their heart and communicate with God..seek and you shall find ;)

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.

Could you point me to the part of the Gospels where Jesus talks about "missing the mark?" Because I can point you to the part where HE says, "It is not what goes into a man's mouth that defiles him, but rather what comes out of his mouth." Mathew 15:11.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
I have been asking myself the same exact question lately, ever since putting off smoking chron.

Ask yourself this question; is smoking weed bringing you closer to Jesus or further away from him.

I literally just asked a christian friend ( whom happen to beep in while I was typing this very statement on my phone) this very same question. Suddenly the conversation turned ugly. He thought I was high and in the middle of smoking weed and was offended that I didn't invite him over to smoke weed with him. Then he told me I wasn't making any sense so he would have to let me go. Wow. Note: I haven't smoked in 3 weeks, and I am far from high.

This just makes me think the bad outweighs the good over such a substance.

It makes you paranoid in social situations, makes you lazy and, you eat up all the food in your cabinets.

What do you think?

Talk to the holy spirit and inquire from him what he should instruct you to do.

Faith in god comes from hearing the word he speaks to you and obeying what he instructs. Ask him.

My 'friend' said (shortly before the convo turned ugly and he hung up,) that he believes it is each persons choice and that they do so at their own discretion. He also said that if you were to ask church people about it, they would say it is a sin.

I prayed and asked for confirmation from scripture. I opened to a passage that eluded to not wasting your money of which God has supplied to you. I then rationalized this by thinking I could just grow my own. Good Luck trying that.

If smoking weed makes you a dead beat lazy flop who neglects to clean up your room, take regular showers, take your children to church and to the park, and alots for you to make excuses and put off everything till the next day or month (like my roommate who also claims to be christian); I would say smoking it is worthless.

Your blood will not be on my hands for you to rationalize your intended behavior. Look how far you have come. Don't let anything get in your way now.

First and foremost Jesus is My Savior, Thanks and Glory be to God. A Personal Relationship with Jesus is the only way to come to peace for Christians about this, and I seek and "in all thy ways acknowledge him" (Proverbs 3:6) about everything in my life good or evil. I don't know about your personal relationship with God Christians but I don't want to be left behind when the Son comes back for us. Our Lord does talk about herb and even bud being perfect for use in Isaiah 18:4-5 my favorite, but its all in the Old Testament we have a amazing New Testament and New Covenant now Thanks and Glory be to God. In Romans 12:1-3 Paul speaks about our responsibility of "thinking soberly" and "renewing of our mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." Please read these 3 verses because they speak volumes to Christians who are serious about seeking God's perfect love and will for their life. This subject can only be answered by our Father, so please keep seeking and acknowledging him "and he shall direct thy paths" (Proverbs 3:6), personally I have slowed down alot Thanks and Glory be to God.
