Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Im sorry brother that you have to endure vile replys to your thoughtful and obviously sincere question about the possible prospect of marijuana use being a sin. First off MJ is an herb, engineered, created and provided by our Father.I can only speak from expirience but I must say that I have in one way or another used MJ in my life for 35+- years. I am a Christian and I too asked that question with all sincerity over the course of many years to all that I felt could receive it and answer with honest insight.The responce(s) that I got in return were as varied as the individuals themselves.After many years of contemplation on this and many other aspects of our Christian walk, Ive come to this truth for myself. Everything created by and provided by God can and will be perverted and if possible used as a stumbling block by our enemy.The herb itself is not the issue.The question of Smoking the herb being sin? This once again in my own revelation could become a perversion of Gods planned use of this herb.God created all things and they were good. Our world and our lives are filled with sin.We are called to identify,repent and ask for help from the Holy Spirit (that JESUS sent) in removing sin from our lives.I have no dought that the vast majority of the people using MJ and the effects they receive from this use are in some way involved in sin.Your walk with Jesus is YOUR walk with Jesus.If it is revield to you by the Holy Spirit that it is a stumbling block then you know what to do.I personally give thanks to my Father for this blessing and ask that it be used in my life for good.Is the current explosion of cannabis culture being the answer to everything,3' bongs,smoking yourself to the point of uselessness part of Gods plan or another perversion of Gods plan? You decide.God bless you in your walk with him.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
but i just dont know why it would be something we would have to stay away from

Because it's against the law.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2536981


Americas law that is...and America is a very influential country apparently since democracy has been adapted and some what forced on other countries to look at the world through our eyes; see how happy we are "American dream" type stuff. I love the many opportunities America has compared to other countries, its the lack of knowledge and a deep influential backgroud that may not be the way people actually think just the way they were taught "it's appropriate" to think. If we are the "land of the free" and "the home of the brave" why do so many minds not speak out. We dont think for ourselves, we are told what to think and whats appropriate and we live life as "civilized" people with a closed mouth to avoid attention.

Honestly no other place in the world looks appeasing though.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Lemme start by saying I am not a christian or religious in any way BUT I do attend a christian (Lutheran) school so I am pretty well educated in the beliefs of christians. It is my view (lemme repeat MY VIEW) that smoking weed is not a sin. Majiuana and alcohol kinda go hand in hand together with the whole "altering your state of conciousness" deal. Jesus and his disciples drank wine (alcohol), they distributed it to other people and didnt condenm its use in moderation. The bible does say some things about drunkeness but I think as long as youre not getting conpletely stoned off your ass smoking pot is not a sin.
To those who say "your body is Christs temple" here is my argument to that. They tell you to respect the temple and doing drugs is terrible because it destroys the temple. Well so does the abundance of junk food that we consume. People take that verse far too seriously in my opinion. You should respect the temple if thats how you feel about it. However taking drugs like perscription and otc stuff is helping your temple. If smoking helps you relax and your temple feels good then I dont see how it could be a sin. The bible doesnt directly condemn it so I think youre in the clear.

Second Lutherans teach that faith alone saves. So if you wanna believe that then it doesnt really matter what you do. Youre saved.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
I don't think smoking Marijuana is a sin. Sin is something that troubles us, in mind, heart and body. If it troubles YOU its sin, because God resides in all his creation and we are his creation. If the means of purchasing the plant is wrong, or if you abuse the creation. You my friend are sinning. But if yopu're thankful to the almighty, and you're not letting it get in your way of living a happy life; smoking weed is not a sin. In that case consumption of any narcotic is not a sin (except man made)

Jesus said "Your body is a temple". You must take care of it, so that you can best physically and mentally serve and honor God. Marijuana effects your judgment, and robs you of your ambition. It would keep you from having a sound mind, and from being able to make righteous decisions. It would ultimately affect your relationship with Jesus, and so yes, I would say it is wrong.

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!!

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
I am a GOd fearing believer in Jesus also. I am 27 and was a meth addict for a few years and have done anything u can think of. My husband and I both led this life style for quite some time. We have discussed the weed issue several times. We don't believe the drug iitself is bad it actually has a lot of good uses. The BIble says what satan intends for ev[googlevid]il GOd cN use for good. But it also says we have to obey the law[liveleak]s of the land. Which if u obey God then u will follow the rules. But here in colorado it is pretty legal so now it comes down to ur own personal conviction. What is God telling u? That's what matters. And if u do decide its fine make sure it doesn't become a stumbling block for some one who's faith is weak. Or don't use it around those who disagree as to not offend them. Hope this helped.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Jesus was the biggest stoner of all time, so YES it's OK.

His "annointing oil" contained 6 kg of cannabis.

Ever wonder why so many hippies "look like Jesus"? On top of that, cannabis has never harmed anyone physically and religions for millenia have been doing drugs.

So as long as you treat others as you would like to be treated and are a good, loving person, smoke as many bonghits as you desire!

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.

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

You are wrong at point number 1 so I quit reading. Jesus drank alcohol yet never sinned, He was blameless.
It's your actions during the substance that constitutes sin.
If Marijuana causes you to sin, then it's not good for you.
I smoke a joint and I pray and worship the Lord afterwards, He gave us that plant to use wisely, It is a healing plant.
Now if it caused me to go to the strip club and act a fool and sin against God, i would walk away from it.
