Have anyone purchased cigarettes lately?

I got in line to pay for my gasoline. Two people in front of me, one purchase five single packs of cigarettes totaling $52 dollars and the second person brought one totaling eight dollars. I thought, I could fill my gas tank with those 6 packs of cigarettes.

I would hope that nobody here is a smoker. But, that's not always the case. I haven't smoked for nearly 23 years. I had my last cigarette on March 22, 2000. I only smoked on occasion at that time, but, for several years before that I smoked at least 2 packs a day. Salem Lights, Kool Filter Kings, and Benson & Hedges. When I first started smoking at the age of 12, cigarettes only cost 29 cents a pack. That was 48 years ago. When I quit, they were nearly $2 a pack. My father was a heavy smoker. He smoked nearly 4 packs a day for over 35 years, and one to two packs a day from the time he was 8. He died from cancer at the age of 59, dying just two weeks before his 60th birthday in June of 2000.

Haven't smoked in over 40 years. Funny you should ask. My DIL asked me that very question last night, right after asking what I thought about drinking wine. From the tone of the conversation, I suspected she wanted something to pounce on  So, I told Her I WOULD Not answer the question. She tried to tempt me to answer like 2 or 3 more times but I still refused  So she came from another angle and asked had I ever smoked or drank beer. To that I answered "yes". I then turned to my son and asked, have you ever seen your daddy drink or smoke? He answered, "no". Over 40 years on drinking too. I wasn't going to lie about my past, but both she and my son know where I stand on drinking. She only wanted something to argue about. But she said no more about it. Let me say, in conclusion: neither smoking, nor drinking is going to send a Christian to Hell *if he's already truly saved*. But they'll damage your testimony, invoke the chastening from the Lord, and likely send you to Heaven early.

Smoke houses are now opening up everywhere, here in Florida, medical marijuana.  I noticed more homeless people are hanging around these places too. Sad 😞 I wonder when recreational marijuana is legal here, are we going to look like California. 

There's nothing wrong with medical marijuana. People who use it by prescription aren't like those who are using it recreationally. And not everyone who uses marijuana smokes it. Many consume it by eating it in their food.

You’re the first Baptist preacher that supports it. For medical then comes recreational.

That's not a fact. I'm NOT the first Baptist preacher that supports it. There are many Baptist pastors in this country who support it for medical use. It's statements like the one you just made make me call you into question on things. Again, prove your allegation that I'm the first Baptist preacher to support it, or withdraw the statement. These kind of statements from you truly need to stop.

Brother Tony, we need to be firm where we stand, if we support it for medical use, marijuana. We all know what comes after. Now if there’s a brother in Christ, that is using marijuana for medical uses, he or she should not be telling anybody openly. This can become a stumbling block for someone that is using it for recreation uses, an open door. Will those Christians, lose their salvation?  I believe they would not, lose their salvation for using marijuana. I believe it is not approved like other legal drugs, alcohol, and smoking. We Christians, should not be using these for our body pleasures, because the Holy Spirit lives in us.

I may well be..."on this forum." But, then again, you really don't know since you've not polled everybody...correct? This makes your assertion a false accusation until otherwise proven. I, for one, am going to continue to call you out when you make blanket, unfounded statements.

Some things don’t need to have a poll here. Example

1 How many here supports gay marriages?

2. How many here supports abortions?

3. How many here supports the legal uses of marijuana?

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
