Smoking and the Bible

While the Bible doesn't address the issue of smoking directly, you will find a number of biblical principles which apply to your smoking habit.

Considering what is known about the effects of smoking on your body, do you think smoking is in conflict with how you should treat your body? "Don't you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body." 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

The Bible addresses the danger of false teachers who had given themselves to indulging fleshly appetites and were leading others into worldly behavior. "They promise freedom, but they themselves are slaves of sin and corruption. For you are a slave to whatever controls you." 2 Peter 2:19 How does this verse describe someone who is controlled by something? The nicotine found in cigarettes has been proven to be addictive. Therefore, based on this verse, how would you describe a habitual smoker's relationship to cigarettes?

If you believe that smoking is something that God wants you to stop doing, then it is a sin for you to smoke because you are doing something contrary to God's will. "Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires." Romans 6:12

What are some Bible promises that will help you overcome the desire to smoke? "The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure." 1 Corinthians 10:13
"So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." James 4:7
"For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13 

Jesus acknowledged that people sometimes have difficulty doing what they know is the right thing to do. "Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!" Read Matthew 26:41

The scripture mentions something else that will give you strength. What is it? "I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you." Psalm 119:11

What If I Fail? "But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness." 1 John 1:9

When You Smoke. Each puff you take assaults your lungs with about 4,000 chemicals, more than 40 of them known to cause cancer. You are 10 times more likely to get cancer than a nonsmoker. You are two times more likely to have a heart attack than a nonsmoker. You are more likely than a nonsmoker to suffer from emphysema, chronic bronchitis, a stroke, male impotence or one of numerous other ailments to which smoking has been linked. You chance joining the 320,000 people who die unnecessarily each year -- because of smoking.5
