  • If it hinders one from providing for their families, then yes. Also, are we talking "sin" like in the bible or "sin" as in is it wrong.

  • Doesn't really matter if it's a sin, it's illegal. God can't save you from jail,lol..

  • Its a sin b/c since its illegal its not obeying the law by smoking it. I can only see it not being a sin if its used for madisimbal (yeah 'cause spell that word, but you know what I mean) purposes and prescribed by a doctor.

  • I didn't ask if people thought it was stupid or if it was illegal or not. I asked if it was a sin. And I mean,is it seen as a sin toward God.

  • STOLEN, but I liked it;
    1 Corinthians 6:19
    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?

    You body is a temple and should not be defiled.
    Same reason for not getting tattoos.

    Yes marijuana grows naturally and God gave it for our use but not for something that will harm your body. There are a lot of other uses other than smoking it.

    edit: Funny. I used to smoke it too so i understand your point but God wants you to rely on Him, and be happy with Him not drugs that alter your mind. Basically if u need pot to get happy rather than just knowing God then its not cool

  • Also, the Bible states that one should not drink for drunkeness. I believe that pot falls in this category as well.
