Smoking is a Sin

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply Wisdom.com

Smoking is a sin and if you smoke you are a faker Christian. Period. Don’t roll your eyes. How gross it is to be walking through the doors of your church right before it starts and all the smokers are getting their last hit of nicotine before they go inside. You can’t smoke a cigarette, which we all know kills you, and claim to be honoring the Holy Spirit within your body. Jesus tells us that the second most important commandment is to love our neighbor. (Mark 12:31) The second is this, ‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Second hand smoke is proven to be worse than first hand smoke because it doesn’t have a filter. How can you love your neighbor if you don’t care about his lungs? What about parents who smoke in front of their kids and subject them to second hand smoke all day long?

To the faker Christian who smokes and pretends to follow the bible, please stop making Christians look bad. Please honor your body, a gift from Yahweh God, by not polluting it. Find something better to take your attention away from the worries of the day. Matthew 6:33-34 reminds us to Keep on, then, seeking first the kingdom and his righteousness, and all these [other] things will be added to ​YOU. So, never be anxious about the next day, for the next day will have its own anxieties. Sufficient for each day is its own badness.
