Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Nothing is a sin.. You pray to your invisible god to forgive you and voila your forgiven.. Who do u think it is forgiving u?? It's you! Clearing your conscience. Then U can go sin again and forgive yourself again..
Marajuana is a plant provided by mother nature.
No different to any other herb and has amazing medical benefits. What would u rather do to help u sleep? Take a chemical cancer causing pharmaceutical or something natural that grows in the ground. Natives used it for centuries and no one stopped them because they understood that everything we need us is provided for a reason.
I know for a fact that it is one of the most beneficial herbs u can use and they can stick they're laws and Christian beliefs right where the sun don't shine. No one on this planet has the right to tell me I can't use something I grow.. Pathetic ridiculous law.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Something that came to mind the other day when I had this conversation is that if smoking marijuana was a sin (aside from legal reasons) is that marijuana was a drug meant to have control over us and keep us from God, it would be addictive. There's plenty of prayer circles and Jesus freaks lighting up at Marley Fest. Smoking weed doesn't harm your body, at least not to the extent that everything else would. Too much of ANYTHING is bad for you, and as long as weed is used in some kind of moderation and you can still establish right from wrong, it's not a sin. Jesus says all we have to do is have faith and believe in Him; smoking weed doesn't make you suddenly not believe in Him.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Judgement is for Christ, not me.

From my own Christian perspective, I'm not going to get on the pot or encourage anyone else to do so.

It's a distraction from God, like everything else.

I already have enough distractions.

Someone said "Christians think everything is a sin..."

Everything that distracts from God is a sin.

We are all sinners.

That is why we are Christian.

People can't seem to grasp that.

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.

God loves you. He designed you to be the wonderful, unique person you are. He wants you to get to know Him. I don't blame you for being skeptical of modern-day Christianity. Much of it is BS. But take the time to learn the authentic teachings of Jesus - at least then you can make an educated decision about whether or not to follow Him.

Awesome! I've been looking for something like that. Point me towards it please (and to the authentication too) cos all I've been able to find is that bible thingumyjig.

The Bible talks about obeying the law, unless it goes against God. The law states Marijuana is illegal. The bible was created for just Christians but for all man in creation. Christianity is just a label. When it comes to Alcohol the bible says that you should not drink to get drunk. And it also says that if you drink your not wise. The bible is a guide not a rule book. If you knew Jesus you would understand.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Bro it's not a sin as long as you dont abuse it and hurt those around you and yourself. I'm in the same boat as you, i smoke week at night to just relax after a days work. I also do it to munch out n play games =P. So keep doing it, just dont start putting weed infront of your responsibilities and letting it basically become an addiction. I also am a christian but not really that into it idk how to describe it, i guess i believe in jesus' teaching and i look up to him cuz he's a great person but im not into the whole church n organized religion thing.

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
Well I learned alot from reading the first 3 pages and if you look at the forum the only people who claim it as a sin are doing so using the basis that marijuana is a drug and any verse used to back up their belief is based on that assumption. Who deemed marijuana a drug? Man did. Just like man deemed prescription opiates "medicine". The only person who backed their claim with verses was Buford. Marijuana is obviously deemed a "plant" and a "meat" and "good" by God. So if you are claiming it a drug then you are listening to Man not god. Show me a verse that claims marijuana a drug and you might have some backup. But the bible will not prove your point. Only man will. Dependency or idolizing anything is a sin but thats about it!

Re: Is Smoking Marijuana A Sin? Christian Perspective!
"Of the historical material indicating the Hebraic use of cannabis, the strongest and most profound piece of evidence was established in 1936 by Sula Benet (a.k.a. Sara Benetowa), a Polish etymologist from the Institute of Anthropological Sciences in Warsaw. Benet later stated that: "In the original Hebrew text of the Old Testament there are references to hemp, both as incense, which was an integral part of religious celebration, and as an intoxicant"(Benet 1975). Through comparative etymological study, Bennett documented that in the Old Testament and in its Aramaic translation, the Targum Onculos, hemp is referred to as kaneh bosm, which is also rendered in traditional Hebrew as kannabos or kannabus. The root "kan" in this construction means "reed" or "hemp", while "bosm" means "aromatic". This word appeared in Exodus 30:23, Song of Songs 4:14., Isaiah 43:24, Jeremiah 6:20, Ezekiel 27:19.

In 1980 the Hebrew University in Israel confirmed Benet's identification of Kaneh-Bosm as hemp, and the respected anthropologist Weston La Barre(1980) referred to the Biblical references in an essay on cannabis."

The obedience to man's laws and the principle related to your body being a temple are two separate issues. And both are valid. Yes, if you knowingly disrespected the laws of Singapore, then that was, well...disrespectful and sin.

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.

Not true. God gave man the seed bearing herb to do with as we please. Smoking pot isnt worshiping pot, and it isnt an idol either. Jeeeez people. Its not what a man puts into his mouth that defiles him but rather whats coming out of it. People drink alcohol and that isnt a sin either. Its being given over to drunkeness that is the sin.
