Breast Cancer Blowout

Almost everyone knows of Breast Cancer. Most probably aren’t experts on the subject, but many do know of this type of cancer and feel that it’s a serious problem for women and has affected the lives of many and their families. Breast Cancer is often represented and acknowledged in various ways: Commercials, stores, jewelry, it’s supported in some sports, the pink ribbon (which has become a symbol for Breast Cancer), pink clothing, and October has even become Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Personally, I feel that Breast Cancer is more represented that other cancer types and other illnesses and diseases in general. Yes, Breast Cancer is very important and should be taken seriously, but other diseases should be taken just as seriously.

Christians and Tobacco Use

The question being asked is if it is wrong for a Christian to use tobacco. In my opinion, it is not necessarily a sin to use tobacco.
