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


1) Smoking Pot since it is illegal, is a sin. As a Christian you are to obey the civil authorities. They are God's representatives, controlling lawlessness.

2) Drugs fall under the category of pharmacopeia, which is part of the Term for Witchcraft in the Bible. Strictly forbidden.

3) As stated in another post, It defiles the Body, as the Temple of the Holy Spirit that is forbidden.

As Marijuana contains the same cancer-causing chemicals as tobacco, it also causes various lung diseases, thus defiling the body. As well as new findings showing possible links to mental illness caused by continual usage.

So it is a Sin on many levels.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5536007



1) since its leagal in CO but not federally is it sorta a sin?

2) only processed/man made drugs fall into the pharma catagory.

3) Marijuanna kills cancer it does not cause it.
Jesus said something like its not what goes into the mouth that defiles man, its what comes out of it.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
How do you define "sin"?

If nobody told you what a sin was or what things would make you a sinner then how can it really apply. Without any conception of this word or the meaning behind it, it means NOTHING.

Dont be told what you can and cannot do. Words only hold the meaning you put behind it; dont let the fear mongers control you.

 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.

if it is a crutch that you can't live without, then you need help.

if you use to escape lifes problems it is a problem for you

if you use to relax a bit and have no conscience of it as sin, then it not sin for you, but you still might suffer because it is against the law of the land

personaaly, i don't care for it once i got saved.

for me when i was an unsave teenager, pot opened me up to unsavory freinds as well as pornographic perversions.....soit was bad for me

Jesus Loves Marijuana!
It may be sort of sinfull to burn it up. It is more natural and healthfull to consume it Orally.

But Jesus also said (if I may paraphraze)

obey these freaking unjust imoral laws or you might get busted. I guess if you can handle the getting busted part, or are sure you dont have to worry about that, then use your own judgement I guess.

And/or/but 'pot' can be abused and shouldnt be. It can be somewhat habit forming. Its relatively safe if it unadulterated and consumed orally. Smoking it does almost encourage habituation. And eating it does not guarontee you wont. Its not for everybody and dangerous for some. People are different and respond differently to different medicins/diet. It most certainly should be legal and up to the individual to choose his/her own diet.

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!
No but Christianity id zeus worship, the fallen son.
The devil......

The old books GOD said put no one or thing before me, the cat zeus, said he was the only way to the father.
One of them is a liar, you figure it out.
Then there's the bit on who sits on the right hand of the throne, and he continually denied being god, but let his followers answer for him. He said he was the son of man, and said man was "sin". Not to mention everything he said in the bible is contradicted in what was left out (gnostics), and gives you a better picture of who/what he really is/was.


Perhaps a better read of the book, and more thoughts on diety, before you start picking apart creation. The original GOD said, he created all green things and they were good, Christianity uses all green things to corrupt and enslave man. "Man" has no idea who the sons of men or the sons of g-ds are.

I believe at this point many can see the "evil" of petrochemicals. Why would a good GOD give us a simple plant that cures cancer and you can literally make anything from, then enslave us to a system that literally destroys his creation.


I dont believe if there is a GOD he/she/it would be a dumb ass like that. I do believe however we were warned countless times about these nazis through history, and not just recently. Its by controlling creation, they gain power, that is why they seek to do away with g-ds, as they become them.

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.

Wasn't necessarily the drugs.

I have seen three behaviors lead to mental disorders.


Alcohol abuse, drug use (including marijuana), and sexual recklessness.

I've known personally two suicides. One alcohol abuse. The other whoring. One I didn't know personally, adultery.


It's damn near impossible to maintain the sexual standards I do if you use drugs. The behavior puts you in contact with people who don't have sexual morals. That affiliation will drag you down. You will become who your friends are. And drugs will carry you further down that path.

Behavior regulation is a prerequisite of being saved. You cannot regulate your behavior on drugs, and that is one of the major reasons ANY substance abuse is a sin.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Bro, Your story resonates with me. I have suffered from long term chronic depression, ADD, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, and weed is the only thing that helps me. I used to drink 30 drinks (liquor) per week. I used to habitually use porn and masturbation as an antidepressant. I never believed in the goodness of God or want to read my bible. I was a very difficult person to be around. Had a very hard time reaching out to people. I started using marijuana (vaporizing it) and all of that changed. I started to see how porn and masturbation are really stupid, I totally lost the desire to drink, I lost 30 pounds, had more energy, more focus, did not feel depressed, was nicer to be around, and my wife would admit that, but she still disapproved (strongly) solely because pot is illegal. So, just think about the fruit of the spirit. If what you are doing produces righteousness, that may be your answer. I would encourage you. I think that you and I have had some similar circumstances and experiences. It's difficult because of our society and all of the preconceptions regarding marijuana, but if you believe that taking an antidepressant is legitimate to treat depression, then taking marijuana is no different. If you run across Christians that say that taking an antidepressant is a sin, then you might as well not bother arguing with them because you aren't really speaking the same language. They are going off on legalism and the pharmakeia arguments. Bro, keep praying that God reveals the truth to you and He who is faithful and just will forgive your sins (and mine) and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. And if using marijuana is a sin, He will reveal that to you. Until then, observe the fruit of the spirit. A house divided against itself cannot stand, Jesus did not cast out the spirits by the power of Beelezebub (sp?).

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
First off smoking pot is a sin
Think of this analogy,think of sin as poop and if ur only sinning 1 time a week it's like only eating a little poop so go a head and smoke but it is just like eating a little poop and we all no poop doesn't taste very good

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
OP


Thanks for your testimony.....and praise God for your new life in Christ.


Although getting drunk is specifically stated as sin in the Bible......to my knowledge smoking a joint is not. As long as you do not fall in love with the stuff....and it becomes an idol.


As far as your girlfriend......if you study the Scriptures.....those in Christ are not only referred to as children of God.......but also as priests.....judges......and co-heirs with Christ.

This is amazing.....but clearly stated in Scripture.


As such.......you and your girlfriend can take a vow before God and it will be valid........if you have decided that you want to stay together forever. You are a priest.....and can perform the marriage/vows before God at home. It is not required that you hire a pastor......or go to a court house.


Remember however that "God hates divorce." Divorce is a sin. So make sure that she is the right one for you......and be willing to make compromises and work hard at making the marriage work.
