Me and my friend asked a christian preaching man on the street if it was ok to smoke weed and he said there was nothing in the bible to suggest it was wrong.
Was he a Jehovah Witness?? if there was someone on the street preaching and he said that then he shouldn't be on the street preaching lol.
Obviously i'm not taking sides on this matter cause i love weed and i also love God.
One time someone even asked me about that since it is legal in some places then why is it wrong to smoke it. The reason why it would be wrong is kind've hard to explain because there is no verse in the bible that says you can't smoke it. There are parts that say drinking is bad like "only give beer to those who are perishing" and how prophets were punished for drinking with drunkards and all that. But for smoking there really isn't anything.
However there is a few verses in the bible that says that Christ is the head and we are all made up of one body. Then imagine if your hand becomes numb, lazy, and even getting sick, then it effects the rest of the body. Smoking can do some type on internal damage like to the lungs, and makes you slower in some exercises like running you'll run out of breath faster then taking care of the body becomes difficult and the body in the bible is known as the temple, when we keep Passover Jesus Christ remains inside of us and us in him, then imagine a temple with God inside and it's filled with smoke, and God said anyone who desecrated his temple will be punished.
Even I heard in Korea that it's like super strict like they can't even smoke cigs over there or anything, i heard its really clean like the ticket for litering is ten times higher, and they do actually show how advanced they are in everything to.
Once again, i'm not taking sides, just showing the reason why smoking would be considered bad or sinful in the bible.
As for Jesus Christ being annointed, which verse in the bible says that he was annointed with the holy oil or anything like that??
Cause in Luke3:21(continue reading) and Luke4:16(continue reading) it says that when Jesus Christ was 30 years old he was baptized with water not oil, and when he was baptized the Holy Spirit came on him and it says he was "annointed" but it didn't say anything about oil going on him or anything like that he just got baptized with water.
And for the early Christian "sects" he referred to, which sects?? because Apostle Paul was known as the ringleader of the Nazarene Sect, Sect is like cult, because not everyone believed in Jesus Christ yet so the Pharisees would call the Christians a cult, the one's that followed Jesus Christ in the Church of God he established.
