“Your body is the Lord’s temple and you are the steward of that temple.”

“Your body is the Lord’s temple and you are the steward of that temple.”

“Keep your body mind heart and soul healthy and holy . . . that God may dwell there.”

DON’T USE TOBACCO (It is slow suicide and makes those who do slaves of nicotine.)

DON’T DRINK ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES (The temporal pleasure it brings is not without a price.)

DON’T BECOME SEPARATED FROM THOSE WHO LOVE YOU (There is safety with those of like faith.)


You don’t have to taste poison to know it will harm you. (You don’t have to handle a viper to know it would kill you.)

If you know someone is smoking drinking or abusing drugs legally or illegally . . . or if you know of someone being influenced by those who do . . . tell someone, tell the parents and tell the deacons, tell the elders. Warn them of the danger. Do not remain silent Lives are at stake . . .
-------------------------------------------------
Smoking makes those who do old before their time and it is addictive. It makes those who sell the tobacco wealthy and those who use it and their family’s poor. It causes influenza, lung cancer, mouth and throat cancer, shortness of breath, heart disease and it damages the circulatory system of the body. My grandfather smoked and the smell of a cigarette burning reminds me of him. It causes me to remember him and it was the reason he spent the last decade of his life gasping for breath and tied to an oxygen bottle.
If you are smoking, you are forsaking the assemble of the saints to do so. Christians don’t let Christians smoke. “DON’T SMOKE AND YOU WILL NEVER BECOME A SMOKER.”
-------------------------------------------------
Drinking makes you drunk and after it has had its way with you, the poison of alcohol, leaves you with a “hangover” and feeling worse (much worse) than when you started to drink. As the Bible says, it is foolish to drink strong drink (alcoholic beverages). Fools drink, . . . don’t be a fool. (Drinking alcohol harms your mind, body and soul. Damaging directly and indirectly the brain, liver and kidneys, affecting judgement, reputations and morality. With habitual use a person becomes addicted. Those who encourage its use should be ashamed of themselves and will answer one day for the damage they have done.
If you drink, you are forsaking the assembly of the saints to do so and you will likely be away from the safety of those who love you and want what is best for you. If you are drinking, you are likely fellow shipping with those who would drug you and leave you torn and confused. “DON’T DRINK AND YOU WILL NEVER BECOME AN ALCOHOLIC.”
-------------------------------------------------
Abusing drugs legal or illegal . . . “DON’T PUT DRUGS INTO YOUR BODY AND YOU WILL NEVER BE A SLAVE TO THEM.”
Talk to your parents and let it be known that drugs and the destruction their use causes will not be allowed in our community. For the sake of your own, your friend’s, your family’s and your children’s do not abuse or allow others to abuse drugs. (Hospitals, prisons and the graves are full of people who never intended to become addicts.)
-------------------------------------------------
Tobacco, alcohol and other drugs make slaves of those who choose to put themselves into the chains of addiction. DO NOT PUT THOSE CHAINS ON YOU OR ANYONE.

Do not violate or destroy the temple of the Lord that is your body . . . be a good steward and take care of yourself. Your Heavenly Father stitched you together in your mother’s womb, you are a wonderfully and delicately made unique individual; more valuable then any bird of the field (God knows when one of them falls from the sky) The Creator supplies their needs. God loved you, you are much more precious than the birds of the field. God has given you what you need and He sent His son for you, because he loves you that much. Do not destroy yourself or defile the temple of the Lord.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
