LDS Church clarifies vaping, lattes and recreational use of marijuana as against its Word of Wisdom
Among the provisions of the health code designated in the Word of Wisdom are no alcoholic drinks, no smoking or chewing of tobacco and no â€śhot drinksâ€ť â€” believed to refer specifically to tea and coffee.
So in addition to vaping or e-cigarettes, there are other modern and popular drinks that the church leadership says are enticing youth.
Mormonism Research Ministry wrote: .... but, my brethren, if you drink coffee or tea, or take tobacco, are you letting a cup of tea or a little tobacco stand in the road and bar you from the celestial kingdom of God, where you might otherwise have received a fulness of glory?â€ť (Doctrines of Salvation 2:16). Apostle Boyd K. Packer explained, â€śThe Word of Wisdom put restrictions on members of the Church. To this day those regulations apply to every member and to everyone who seeks to join the Church. They are so compelling that no one is to be baptized into the Church without first agreeing to live by them. No one will be called to teach or to lead unless they accept them. When you want to go to the temple, you will be asked if you keep the Word of Wisdom. If you do not, you cannot go to the house of the Lord until you are fully worthyâ€ť (â€śThe Word of Wisdom: The Principles and the Promise,â€ť Ensign (Conference Edition), May 1996, p. 17).
