Articles on the Use of Tobacco

April 1856

In 1856 there were a number of Sabbathkeeping Adventists still plagued with the use of tobacco in one form or another.

On February 7 the Review carried an article that included a compilation of statements by physicians on the use of tobacco. One in April written by J. N. Andrews, entitled "The Use of Tobacco a Sin Against God," drove the matter home. In a short editorial, James White, in an indirect way, indicted a good many of his fellow church members. He inquired of those who claimed to be too poor to pay for the church paper, "Do you use tea, coffee, and tobacco?"
