Sin or not a sin? That is the question.

  1. Do you think smoke marijuana is a sin? I am very active in church but at times I hear that smoking is a sin. I know that anything that you do too much is a sin. What do you think????
  2. Depends on your personal flavor of biblical interpretation.

    Some say anything which intoxicates is a sin and clouds your judgment and distract your from god.

    Others say there is evidence of Jesus using it, and that it should be promoted as a sacrament.

    I say there is no such thing as sin and you shouldn't live your life according to archaic superstition.

    To each their own, I suppose.
  3. There is a quote from the Bible where God says that he gives all the seed-bearing plants for man to use.... too lazy to look it up. Of course, I guess that could mean using it as hemp. As Sam_Spade pointed out, intoxication is also considered a sin.

    But if you're a Christian, then you accept that Jesus died for your sins, correct? We all sin, so the important part is having faith in Jesus. Correct me if I'm wrong.
