Okay, so here is the bottom line. Christians still sin even after they become Christians. Biblically speaking, we are all called by the Big Boss Upstairs to take care of our bodies. It is the only one we are going to get. Smoking, as I have found, is one of those things that doesn't help in taking care of our physical bodies (no kidding, huh).

Yes, I am going to get a little preachy. Look at the name of the group for goodness sake. Rest assured that we are not damned to hell for smoking and God can restore your health (Isaiah 38:16 (NIV)). And remember, Christ didn't come to heal the healthy (Mark 2:17 (NIV)).

I have been a Christian for 5 years and a smoker for 12 (total not counting the duration of the last time I quit). Here are some biblical verses to ponder about the body for those who think the Bible doesn't say anything about smoking (as I once did):

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NIV)
2 Corinthians 7:1 (NIV)
1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 (NIV)

If you have any others, which I am sure there are, please respond to this post.

God bless,
