Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
I say its okay. Im a christian. My daughter uses it as its the only thing that helps her migraines. I don't smoke it but if I wanted to or thought it would help me I would. whats that scripture, healing is in the leaves of the tree...or something like that. when im not sure if something displeases God or not I just confess that when Im doing it and we need to plead the blood of Jesus over our sins at regular intervals anyways cuz were always gonna sin. Then, God sees us filtered through the blood and we appear to be perfect to God as Jesus is.

Whatever is not of faith is a sin. Put God first in everything and conciser the rest dung.
If you are having trouble giving up weed than put it down and walk away. I had the same thing happen to me. I loved smoking weed and it was the hardest thing to give up. Do a study on witchcraft. It is forbidden in the bible (Galatians 5:19-21).

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are [these]; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told [you] in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

If you look up the original word translated witchcraft in the concordance, it will give you the Greek word pharmakeia, where we get the word pharmacy.
Here is the definition
1) the use or the administering of drugs

2) poisoning

3) sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry and fostered by it

4) metaph. the deceptions and seductions of idolatry

Now that you know this, do you want to continue in witchcraft?

Im not saying that all drugs are bad, I take medicine if needed. But mind altering drugs do open up your spirit and soul to forces beyond your control or power to repel outside the power of God. People use drugs for recreation not knowing that they are opening up themselves to the Devil to come in and take residence. Most times it does not happen but some times you get a feeling that something is not right and feel the presence of evil, call on the name of Jesus and he will answer.

!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.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2505940


I don't think you're talking about marijuana. I mean, perhaps in some locations what you say is true but all the reefer in my neck of the woods is grown and sold by good hard-working country folks. They grow lots of crops and marijuana is just one of them. You might be thinking of hard drugs like coke, meth and heroin.

When was pot made illegal? In the 70‘s ? Well, whatever...
You're telling me that for millennia it was legal and all of a sudden it's a sin because of ulture and dogma and propaganda.

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".
 Quoting: aviatrix


This person is brainwashed like mad, "Any other non-prescribed medication"

You do realize that prescribed medications are more dangerous then cannabis don't you? This is just stupidity at its finest.

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!
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!!

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

Spot on.
 Quoting: Chop's


"detrimental to your health"

Living is detrimental to your health, whats more important is whats detrimental to your Spirit. If I'm not mistaken I believe Jesus drank wine, don't confuse what Mankind has prescribed as better healthy living. Mankind prescribes better health as they see fit to acquire more productive work hours out of you and less cost to them.

The body is the temple where the spirit resides.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Gotta tell you up front I'm not saved/born again/ name not written in the book of life, but I do have Christian beliefs. I am also against drugs, I have seen the negative effects of drug use.

Do I think it's a sin? Yes. Everyone who smokes it loves to point out that it comes from a plant and continuously says it's harmless.

Well cocaine and heroin comes from plants too and they are definitely not harmless! It affects your brain and not in a good way. And yes it can become addictive, and there's no way you can tell me that it's truly harmless. You take a drag off a joint and what do you do? Hold all that smoke in your lungs,,,, yea that's not harmless at all. Spiritually I think the people who posted that you are opening yourself up to bad spirits are spot on. It's just like when you watch a demonic/satanic movie, you are opening yourself up. Not a good thing.

Everyone likes to point out and quote the scripture about the plants/seeds etc. But my thinking is Satan at this time has and has had full reign over earth, whose to say he didn't put these plants here on earth?? He knows the Bible front to back. (remember his objective is to take as many souls to hell with him, he's not above using tricks and Bible quotes to get what he wants most)

This may sound crazy, but I even think tptb made marijuana illegal to make people want it even more! Think about it, you tell a person they can't have it that makes them want it even more. Satan wants us humans in bondage to drugs, look at all the kids that are on some kind of behavior drug being told they are add/adhd/depressed and God only knows what other terms they use to get these kids drugged up.

But seriously it sounds like you are conflicted, to that I say you should lay off the weed (maybe do a little fasting) and get on your knees and truly start praying about it. This issue is really between you and God, you won't get your answers on a conspiracy forum. (or any forum for that matter)
