I'm drinking a Mr. Pibb right now...

I am pretty sure that almost any non-Mormon Christian who has heard of Mormons know of the famous “You can’t drink caffeine” statement. The Word of Wisdom is written in the Doctrine and Covenants of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It is a prophecy made by Joseph Smith and it states:

 

Behold, verily, thus saith the Lord unto you: In consequence of evils and designs which do and will exist in the hearts of conspiring men in the last days, I have warned you, and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom by revelation – That inasmuch as any man drinketh wine or strong drink among you, behold it is not good, neither meet in the sight of your Father, only in assembling yourselves together to offer up  your sacraments before him.  And, behold, this should be wine, yea, pure wine of the grape of the vine, of your own make. And, again, strong drinks are not for the belly, but for the washing of your bodies. And, again, tobacco is not for the body, neither for the belly, and is not good for man, but is an herb for bruises and all sick cattle, to be used with judgment and skill. And again, verily I say unto you, all wholesome herbs God hath ordained for the constitution, nature, and use of man – Every herb in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season thereof; all these to be used with prudence and thanksgiving. Yea, flesh also of beasts and of the fowls of the air, I, the Lord, have ordained for the use of man with thanksgiving; nevertheless they are to be used sparingly; And it is pleasing unto me that they should not be used, only in times of winter, or of cold, or famine. All grain is ordained for the use of man and of beasts, to be the staff of life, not only for man but for the heaven, and all wild animals that run or creep on the earth; And these hath God made for the use of man only in times of famine and excess of hunger. All grain that is good for the food of man; as also the fruit of the vine; the ground or above the ground – Nevertheless, wheat for man, and corn for the ox, and oats for the horse, and rye for the fowls and for swine, and for all beasts for the field, and barley for all useful animals, and for mild drinks, as also other grain. And all saints who remember to keep and do these sayings, walking in obedience to the commandments, shall receive health in their navel and marrow to their bones; And shall find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures. And shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint. And I, the lord, give unto them a promise, that the destroying angel shall pass by them, as the children of Israel, and not slay them. Amen.

 

            This is the word of wisdom. Do you see the word “caffeine” written anywhere? The reason many “Mormons” abstain from drinking anything with caffeine in it is because caffeine is an addictive drug. If something is addictive, and one becomes addicted to it, the body becomes somewhat dependant on it. Those who are addicted will usually spend much money on the item in which he or she is addicted to, and the end result is a very unhealthy body, lack of funds, and the sin of gluttony. Now, we do not believe that it is a sin to drink soda’s or eat chocolate. We just try to abstain from becoming addicted to it. Heck, I am drinking a Mr. Pibb right now! The prophecy Joseph Smith made also states that …And, again, tobacco is not for the body, neither for the belly, and is not good for man… The Word of Wisdom revelation was given on February 27th, 1833. There were no known, documented evidence about the dangers of tobacco to the body and they were not known unto the mid 1900's.
