What does the Bible say about smoking?
Here's the answer:
The Bible never mentions smoking, but the Bible does tell us we should not be mastered by anything (1 Corinthians 6:12).
Smoking is never spoken of in the Bible. Even though nothing is said about smoking, we are told that we should not become a slave to anything. Smoking cigarettes, cigars, or vapes can be highly addictive. If a person smokes multiple times, they may become addicted to cigarettes.
Doctors tell us smoking is bad because it hurts our hearts and lungs, potentially causing cancer. God does not want us to hurt our bodies by smoking. God created our bodies and we must take care of them.
Everything we do should be to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31) and smoking does not bring God glory. Rather than smoking, we need to take care of our bodies and keep them strong. Do things that help your body be healthy like drinking water, eating healthy foods, and playing outside.
"Some of you say, 'I have the right to do anything.' But not everything is helpful. Again some of you say, 'I have the right to do anything.' But I will not be controlled by anything" (1 Corinthians 6:12).
"Christ has paid the price for you. So use your bodies in a way that honors God" (1 Corinthians 6:20).
"Brothers and sisters, God has shown you his mercy. So I am asking you to offer up your bodies to him while you are still alive. Your bodies are a holy sacrifice that is pleasing to God. When you offer your bodies to God, you are worshiping him in the right way" (Romans 12:1).
