1 Peter 4:11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
The scriptures tell us that if any man is going to speak he should be speaking according to the oracles, meaning the word of God and not out of his own mind what he thinks God likes or considers petty.
The word of God tells us that we should not defile our temple (our bodies) and when we do things such as smoke weed or cigarettes, we are defiling our bodies.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 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?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
The topic of Smoking Marijuana was discussed in an earlier blog article and we encourage you to read it here, http://blog.thebocc.com/?p=394.
Someone who is considered to be a pastor should be preaching and teaching the knowledge of the bible.
Malachi 2:7 For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts.
The knowledge of the bible teaches us that the marijuana plant like any other herb was created to be used for the medicine of man and not to be administered through inhalation of our lungs.
People should study the bible for themselves so that they can know when someone is telling them a lie, as we are all responsible for our own salvation and continuing to smoke weed or cigarettes and not repenting will bring nothing but damnation.
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
