    Google is a wonderful tool for questions like this.

    *** yb77 p. 56 India ***Some would be smoking a hookah (a water-cooled pipe with a stem two to three feet long). But these individuals would be turning from scripture to scripture as God’s truth was explained to them. They were all nominal Christians associated with various sects of Christendom except Roman Catholic, as very few Catholic groups were in this area.

    Blondie, I agree that google is a wonderful tool for questions like mine, I still want to ask the folks here anyway, it is very educating for us to learn something new.

    You can get DF'd or reproved for IMPROPER use of tobacco, which would imply that there is a proper use...

    what would be the proper use of tobacco?

  • asilentone

    just do not smoke it or chew or dip, right?

    Ingesting tobacco to kill off intestinal worms/parasites is okay by WTS standards...... but since we live in America, I would suggest a prescription instead!

    There are other medicinal uses too but again with modern is kinda pointless.

    Tobacco has properties that were being studied as a possible Parkinson's inhibitor....

    XPeterX It was O.K for the patriarch in Genesis to do a Hooker though. The WT's squirming explanation of this is really funny.

    The Bible is against becoming a slave to bad habits. In this sense, using tobacco but not becoming addicted would be okay.

    The Bible says that it's not what we put inside that defiles a man. In this sense, using tobacco would be okay.

    The Bible says that it's bad to defile one's temple, their body. That would make tobacco bad, but how?

    The dots do not connect with that last one.

    Love hookah! (not hooker)

    A proper use would be a 1992 Padron with a glass of 21 year old Aberfeldy.
