Of course--but I think you are feeling attacked. I don't want that. I did not attack you.Is rock climbing a sin? Driving a car, flying in an aircraft, being a police officer, joining the military, etc, etc, etc. All can cause premature death but might not. And the statement that smoking defiles the temple of God is opinion and not supported with any biblical fact.
I smoked for decades . I have had several mental illness over the years, hospitalized a couple of times. I could not just quit. I got a plan from God, and we worked from smoking to vaping to when I got to 0%, I quit. I still have COPD. I exercise to be able to build my lung capacity up--I am still at 98 percent oxygen, praise God. I wouldn't be if i continued
No one is accusing you of sinning, but your examples aren't the same as smoking . rock climbing ? No.
I speak the truth too.Yes our of the heart man speaks. And I speak to the truth of things.
That is not what He is talking about--doing stuff to harm the body, and then getting it fixed, and doing it again. It is "if that happens to them, then..." You think the snake handlers churches aren't tempting God?Mark 16:17-18 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
