No, not true. Some Christians do smoke. I understand that as Christians, the body is the temple of the holy spirit. So, they shouldn't use anything, like smoking or drinking, which will cause harm to the body. However, there is no right or wrong. Even if a Christian chooses to smoke, it is not a sin, or that he is doing something wrong.

Im really not sure she just told me she used to smoke and she couldnt have quit without handing it over to god. I believe it was before she became a pastor though.

It might be true if it were also true that Christians never lied! There is no particular scripture condemning smokers. They may even make it seem a matter of "honoring the temple of God" or even self control. But these same people will not condemn over eating will they? It is not the wisest choice, but it is not sin.

so far, i can believe that most christian never lie, but never smoke is quite hard to believe, maybe MOST of the christian never smoke but not all

Actually, if you hang around long enough you'll find out that many christians do indeed lie. It is very sad, but they do. I know of several Christians who do smoke, I even know a few who have an occasional drink. I do not think it is a sin, however, I believe there are wiser choices and I believe that it should be in moderation.

They do not cuss, drink, or ever have dirty houses either. No I am afraid the statement above and your friend are wrong. Christians have the same bad habbits as everone else.

No, that isn't true. Mormons don't smoke or drink as a rule. There may be some other Christian groups that also frown upon it but I'm not sure which. But overall smoking and modern religion don't have much impact on each other.

Saying that Christians does not smoke is like saying all christians are perfect and that simply is not true. I am a christian and I smoke. We fall into the same bad habits that the rest of the world does.

I have to say that I don't know where your friend got his or her information, but that is in no way, shape or form true. My grandfather was a devote Christian and he smoked, and had the occational drink. I know that Mormins (sorry about the spelling) do not drink or smoke as it is against their religion, perhaps your friend has gotten the religions mixed up. It happens to the best of us.

This has got to be the most blatant untruth I have ever come across. Of course, many Christians smoke. It's not as if smoking is part of the Christian doctrine. Cheers!!!
