Is Your Temple Smoking?

One of the vices that Christians have recently joined the culture in protesting is that of smoking.  The scriptural passage that is invariably used to preach against smoking is the one that speaks about your body being the temple of the Holy Spirit—and that a Christian would not want to have that temple polluted with smoke.

The only problem is that the Christian is not consistent in the application of this verse, if this is the way that it should be taken, because all kinds of things that the Christian permits or does not preach as strongly against that he should.

Here’s something for you to chew on.  I believe that the church is so infected by the culture that it chooses its big sins based on what the culture thinks.

Let me illustrate:  A couple of generations ago, the big preaching name was Charles Spurgeon.  He was a great preacher, a man of God, and there are everything from devotion books to sermons based on the man’s work.

The man also smoked.
