The perception of people differ a lot on smoking cigarettes.
I attended a christain forum recently where smoking was condemned so much that I felt it was too much. In as much as I accept that it has very negative effects on health, can we really say it is a sin?
If so, will the taking of sugar by a diabetic person or taking of salt by a person with high blood pressure (hypertensive) which equally have deadly consequencies qualify as a sin in the same manner as cigarettes?
Can our bible scholars please help me by showing where the bible specifically condemns this as sin?
