Okay so this is pretty much my growing opinion and attitude toward smoking as I grow older and weaker. I used to be married to a smoker so my tolerance has dwindled, to say the least, to a minimal level.
Although I do believe your body is a temple to be used for God's glory, I can understand the addiction and weakness for it. BUT, when it interferes with my air and stressful breathing then we have a problem.
I am thankful for non-smoking restaurants now but I would also prefer not to have to go thru the cloud of smoke by the front door to get in or out either. I saw a photo of smoking vents used in Japan where the excess smoke went up and away, instead of permeating the nearby air of everyone. Where is the 'made in America' idea on this concept? I don't know exactly how they work but I do like the idea of smokeless electronic cigarettes too. As Woody the Owl says, 'Give a Hoot, don't pollute.'
May we all think about how all of our everyday actions may affect and compromise others in all shapes and forms.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
''Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.''
