Why are you making irrational comparison and judgements?you shouldn't serve the same sentence on an hardcore criminal/murderer that you'll serve to someone who broke the taillight of a car.Comparing icecream and cellphones to cigarettes? I'm sure you're one of those who 'smoke responsibly'.

your body is the temple of God anything that harms it is a sin , anything that causes you to sin or others to sin is against gods word.

Cigarettes are bad for you, Cocaine causes you to lose control ,

But i've seen men with the holy spirit drink caffeine which is a stimulant and over time causes addiction and neurological effects,they also take fast foods and other unhealthy foods,drink sugary stuffs lyk soft drinks,hell they even serve it to members during celebrations.all these are knwn to cause health complications over time,just like cigarretes.infact not everyone who smokes dies of cancer,the stats is lyk 1 in 4,

The Lord Jesus makes us to realise that when The Holy Ghost comes,He'll guide God's children into all truth.I'm yet to see or hear of a possessor of the HOLY Spirit that smokes or approves of smoking or hard drugs.The practise is more associated with irresponsible people and criminals.Children of God do not copy criminals.1Corinthians6v19 What?! Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you,which ye have of God,and YE ARE NOT YOUR OWN? A true child of God/christian belongs to God as he/she has GIVEN his life to Christ.All you do now should be to the glory of God and not just for your personal pleasure.It means crucifixion

ur conscience has a whole lot to do with it. I dont believe God punishes anyone for a sin of whose knowledge they don't have.

u know tobacco is extremely harmful to ur health,

u also know it leads to several diseases, cos it contains lots of unsubstantiated substances. why then should anyone smoke?

if one would only quit smoking because it is a sin, then one is simply religious? if u smoke, quit because of ur health.

Hi Poster,

You need not expect to see things that God expect you to make use of your common sence to infer judgement in the bible.

THE PRODUCERS OF CIGERATES DO WRITE ON THEIR PACKETS THAT TOBACCO SMOKING IS DANGEROUS TO HEALTH.  Do you think that they are joking about that?

Moreso, If one is of God, such one need to know that not all things are expedient, though may be lawful.

If eating meat will cause your brother to stumble, abstain from eating meat. Hope you've come across words of this nature in your bible.  Romans, Corinthians.

Cleave to God.

Bless you.

In cases like this,bible stories tend to make sense.Of course it's sinful against oneself for one to be dangerously harming himself with things like cocaine,alcohol and cigarette,weed is understandable because is natural.

Just common sense and discipline
