Bible verses about "marijuana" | Wesley

1 Timothy 4:1-6

1 But the spirit saith expresly, that in the later times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, 2 By the hypocrisy of them that speak lies, having their own consciences seared as with an hot iron: 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving by them that believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be rejected, being received with thanksgiving. 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and by prayer. 6 If thou remind the brethren of these things, thou wilt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourishing them with the words of faith, and of the good doctrine whereto thou hast attained.

Matthew 15:11

11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth the man, but what cometh out of the mouth, this defileth the man.

Luke 21:34-36

34 But take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overloaded with gluttony, and drunkenness, and the cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch ye therefore and pray always, that ye may be counted worthy to escape all these things which will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Romans 14:1-23

1 Him that is weak in the faith, receive; but not to doubtful disputations. 2 For one believeth, that he may eat all things; another who is weak, eateth herbs. 3 Let not him that eateth, despise him that eateth not: and let not him that eateth not, judge him that eateth; for God hath received him. 4 Who art thou that judgest another's servant? To his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be upheld; for God is able to establish him. 5 One man esteemeth one day above another; another esteemeth every day alike; let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. 6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it to the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord; for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks. 7 For none of us liveth to himself, and none dieth to himself. But if we live, we live unto the Lord; and if we die, we die unto the Lord. 8 Whether therefore we live or die, we are the Lord's. 9 For to this end Christ both died and lived again, that he might be the Lord both of the dead and of the living. 10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou despise thy brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment-seat of Christ. 11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12 So then every one of us shall give an account of himself to God. 13 Let us therefore no longer judge one another; but judge this rather, not to lay a stumbling block, or a scandal before a brother. 14 I know and am assured by the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean of itself: but to him that accounteth any thing to be unclean, it is unclean. 15 But if thy brother is grieved by thy meat, thou no longer walkest charitably. Destroy not him by thy meat, for whom Christ died. 16 Therefore let not your good be evil spoken of. 17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. 18 And he that in these serveth Christ, is acceptable to God, and approved by men. 19 Let us therefore pursue the things that tend to peace, and to mutual edification. 20 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure: but it is evil to that man who eateth with offence. 21 It is good, not to eat flesh, neither to drink wine, nor to do any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or made weak. 22 Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. 23 But he that doubteth is condemned if he eat, because it is not of faith; for whatsoever is not of faith, is sin.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9 Know ye not, that the unjust shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate, 10 nor sodomites, Nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor revilers, nor the rapacious shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

1 Thessalonians 5:4-8

4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all children of the light and children of the day: we are not children of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep as the others, but let us awake and keep awake. 7 For they that sleep, sleep in the night, and they that are drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us who are of the day keep awake, having put on the breast-plate of faith and love, and for an helmet the hope of salvation.

1 Peter 5:7

7 Watch: be vigilant:

2 Timothy 4:5

5 But watch thou in all things, endure affliction, do the work of an evangelist, fulfil thy ministry.

1 Peter 1:13-16

13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be watchful and hope perfectly for the grace that is brought you by the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, not conforming yourselves to your former desires, in your ignorance; 15 But as he who hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation: 16 For it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

Titus 1:5-9

5 For this cause I left thee in Crete, that thou mightest set in order the things which remain, and ordain elders in every city, as I appointed thee: 6 If a man is blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children, not accused of luxury or unruly. 7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not self-willed, not passionate, not given to wine, no striker, not desirous of filthy gain: 8 But a lover of strangers, a lover of good men, prudent, just, holy, temperate, Holding fast the faithful word, 9 as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

1 John 3:4-10

4 Whosoever committeth sin, transgresseth also the law; for sin is the transgression of the law. 5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins, and in him is no sin. 6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not; whosoever sinneth, seeth him not, neither knoweth him. 7 Beloved children, let no one deceive you. He that practiseth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning: to this end the son of God was manifested, to destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed abideth in him, and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 Hereby the children of God are manifest and the children of the devil: whosoever practiseth not righteousness is not of God; neither he that loveth not his brother.

Romans 13:13-14

13 Let us walk decently, as in the day; not in banqueting and drunken entertainments, not in uncleannesses and wantonness, not in strife and envy. 14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the desires thereof.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

19 Know ye not, that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, which is in you, which ye have from God? 20 And ye are not your own: For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God with your body and your spirit, which are God's.

Ephesians 5:18

18 And be not drunken with wine, 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these, adultery, fornication, 20 uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, enmities, contentions, 21 emulations, wraths, strifes, divisions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of which I tell you before (as I have also told you in time past) that they who practise such things, shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, fidelity, 23 Meekness, temperance; against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ's, have crucified the flesh with its affections and desires. 25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.

1 Peter 4:1-6

1 Seeing then Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind: 2 (for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin) That ye may no longer live the rest of your time in the flesh, to the desire of men, but to the will of God. 3 For the time past of your life sufficeth to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when ye walked in lasciviousness, evil desires, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries. 4 Wherein they think it strange, that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, 5 speaking evil of you, Who shall give account to him that is ready judge the living and the dead. 6 For to this end was the gospel preached to them that are dead also, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the Spirit.

Titus 2:1-8

1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine, That the aged men be vigilant, 2 serious, prudent, sound in faith, love, patience: 3 That the aged women in like manner, be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things: 4 That they instruct the young women to be wise, to love their husbands, 5 to love their chidren, Discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. 6 The young men likewise exhort to be discreet, In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works, 7 in doctrine, uncorruptness, seriousness, Sound speech that cannot be reproved; 8 that he who is on the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of us.

1 Peter 5:8

8 for your adversary the devil, walketh about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour:
