OUR BODY TEMPLE

#13. The Christian will recognize his body as the temple of the Holy Spirit. Therefore he will honor God by caring for his body, abstaining from such things as caffeinated and alcoholic beverages, illicit and social drugs, tobacco in all its forms, the blood and fat of flesh foods, and all unclean meats. Christians will be striving to comply with God's instruction concerning the original diet of Gen 1:29 and 3:18. (1 Cor. 3:16,17; 6:19,20; 9:25; 10:1-11,31; 2 Cor. 7:1; Gal. 5:17-21; 6:7,8; 1 Peter 2:9-12; Lev. 11:1-8; Acts 11:8; Acts 15:29)
