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.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
I used to say no way OP. I really did. Nothing mind altering.

Is it more or less sinful to let a doctor perscribe you some heavy med when a little of what grew in the ground will help and not cause any of the side effects of a scrip? Or is there any difference at all?
Drugs are drugs are drugs. The stuff most religious people will say are OK, are in most instances more harmful than what God grew in the ground. If you feel like you could stand in front of God and be cool with it, then you are fine. God will convict you if it's wrong, but you are the only one who can decide that.
 Quoting: Junie


Thats exactly what im sayin, and i dont feel convicted i just feel people are not as educated as they should be about cannabis and they just jump to conclusions
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2481038


Also, through all the research i've been doing these past years aren't companies like Monsanto producing these GMOs that are literally destroying your body and giving all these diseases to people.

Or how about aspartame? How many followers of Christ induldge in the over 4,000 products that contain this synthetic sugar that is proven to be 4x more addictive than cocaine and in some cases have been directly related to cancer.
[link to digitaljournal.com]
[link to www.digitaljournal.com]
(Those might not be the original articles but just help yourself to google)

What about vaccines? How many followers of Christ buy into this nonsense that vaccines are saving the world from disease and sickness!!! Vaccines that are directly related to autism.
( [link to www.naturalnews.com]
One of the MANY studies of vaccines as I'm sure this forum is aware of.

Or how about followers of Christ who watch television. And all the talk about are pop stars and rock stars and tim tebow and how good beyonce looks. I listen to a christian FM station once in awhile for the worship music... then at commercial they're advertising Hollywood Garbage!

Listen.... we're at a point where basically just breathing while walking outside in this fallen creation can result in barium, aluminum, (supposed nanobots), and thousands of other chemicals that are destroying our body.

Case in point if I vaporize cannabis so the throbbing pain in my neck and my back will go away... I'm going to do it. I'm not ripping bongs with my buddies and partaking in the hippy culture or whatever new mainstream is happening. There are no side effects other than hungry and short loss of memory (ONLY WHILE ON IT); then memory retains. If you have problems with your memory and you constantly have scatter brain... it's not the cannabis. Read your Bible, Repent, Spread the Word.

God Bless.

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!!

For medicinal purposes only? Probably not as bad as other mind altering pharmaceuticals. As for recreational mind numbing, the Levitical law prohibited sorcery. The Greek for sorcery is pharmakeia which you should recognize as the same root as pharmaceuticals. When you alter your mind with drugs you open doors to the spiritual world which is prohibited at this time. Doing drugs is as sinful as practicing sorcery.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
People will tell you it is a sin cuse it alters your mind or is harmful to your body and you should not harm the temple of Christ that is your body, but the same people that say this will consume regular over the counter pills such as Advil or ibuprofen or any common drug that is not tabooed as bad or evil and all these drugs have side effects that can harm your body, so if weed is a sin so are any common drugs
In my oppion weed is not something of sin it just that society and time have deemed it that way
And if it is a sin it's no worrys because god is forgive full and you can always ask for forgiveness and their no problem cuse their no defenat way of knowing if it is truly a sin

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
I have read many of the responses to your blog entry, and have formulated my own opinion. First, your body is a temple, and while this is biblical many Christian pot smokers argue the ground of marijuana not being harmful to your health, in fact, some say that smoking weed is to your benefit. In your case, we are discussing the RECREATIONAL use of marijuana as opposed to the medicinal use.

The book of Romans talks about God judging us from the 'law written on our hearts." This brings the understanding that ultimately your heart is whats judged. Now, if you know no better, or have yet to formulate a reason as to feel "bad" about smoking weed, then smoke it.

However, I hope I can give you some understanding as to why I myself quit abusing marijuana. As a follower of Christ, I have moved away from marjuana, because what was I trying to fulfill by using it? I was getting satisfaction out of a substance instead of the Lord giving me that satisfaction. This is not to say that we should have absolutely zero "fun" things to do, but rather that when you are feeling something from the enemy your answer should be to turn to God and know what He says about you. For example: when I am tempted to go 'roll one up' it is usually because I am feeling lonely, scared, or bored. Sometimes these feeling can even come through my subconscience mind. However, instead of feeding into my feelings of lonlines with weed, I fill them with the holy spirit, and knowing that God is always with me.

I also do not believe as Christians we should or shouldn't do things because they are "sins." The law (yes even in the old testament) is NOT inherintly bad. However, we live under the new law of Christ, walking in freedom of our addictions. I chose not to smoke marijuana because instead of filling myself with that I am filling myself with the Lord. Obviously I am human, but because of the death and resurrection of Christ my sins DO NOT define me. Therefore, I live the life I do because I want to glorify God. When you smoke weed do you feel like you're glorifying God?

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
well if you are into that whole Christian thing it shouldn't really be a question, you have to give your life up to Christ right? I mean smoking a bit of pot should be the last thing on your checklist. Have you given up most of your possessions? Have you really dedicated your life to the Lord? Have you removed every distraction from your life that might steer you away from total devotion to God? How often do you go to church? What kind of work do you do for the poor and the sick? How do you help out your church? How often do you go to the library to study? How much time do you waste watching tv, internet, playing games, going to parties, hanging around with friends?

You believe the Bible right?

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak. (1 Corinthians 8:9 KJV)

My take on this verse in the Bible is why I don't drink or smoke anymore. I used too be a pot head, and I had a drink on occasion. Anyways, say someone finds out you smoke because of some reason, failing a drug test, or something else. They may not be as strong as you, and since Marajauna is a gate way drug, someone may go on too something harder. Generally, it seems to go Marajauna, prescription drugs, and so on and so forth. To get too sum up what I was hoping to relay is that if someone thinks it ok to smoke because they see you smoke, and they end up going on too other drugs, or loose their faith, you were the "Stumblingblock". Sorry for my grammatical errors, I wrote all of that on my iPhone.
