• No. They can drink both.
  • Aye-aye-aye, we are too required to obey the word of wisdom, are we not, and that says we are to avoid substance that are unhealthy or adictive. Well, caffeine is both those things. And to get a temple recommend you are asked if you are living the word or wisdom, right? So I guess you can drink caffeine if you don't want to ever go to the temple. Correction, we are not required to abstain from cafeine, I found out, but it's still a very good idea.
  • The Church has no official position on whether cola drinks are covered in the Word of Wisdom. The binding portions are to abstain from alcohol, tobacco, coffee, tea (need some clarification here since herbal teas are considered ok), and illicit drugs. The word of wisdom part (excellent advice, but not binding) are to eat plenty of grains, use meat sparingly, and otherwise take good care of your body. Anything beyond that is personal choice.
  • No, they are not supposed to drink either. The direct preaching of the mormon bible is to not drink caffeine, coffee,or tea. Though few, if any, follow any of the mormon rules.
  • this is from the Doctrine and Covenants 89 in the Book of Mormon. 5 That inasmuch as any man adrinketh bwine 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. 6 And, behold, this should be wine, yea, apure wine of the grape of the vine, of your own make. 7 And, again, astrong drinks are not for the belly, but for the washing of your bodies. 8 And again, tobacco is not for the abody, 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. 9 And again, hot drinks are not for the body or belly. these are th words straight from the book. read it and inturpret as you wish.
  • I feel it is a personal choice to drink any soda with caffeine. It is not a direct part of the word of wisdom. As with anything if we over use it it's probably not that good for us. We have freedom to choose.
  • Not at all. The LDS church takes the EXACT same stance as the Christians with regards to soda. The reason that soda is frowned upon in the church is because it contains caffeine, a known addictive substances. Since addictive substances are actively discouraged by most religions, Mormons hold to the najority there and discourage the drinking of soda. Does that mean that most follow that rule? Nowadays, not a chance, but neither do most people of any religion. This isn't something unique to Mormons at all.
  • The Word of Wisdom is located in D&C 89. Later an interpretation was sustained as a commandment. Namely, we are forbidden to partake of alcohol (except in the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper), tobacco, coffee, tea (though herbal tea is ok), and illicit drugs. We are strongly encouraged to avoid habit-forming and harmful substances.
  • They can drink either one, as long as they are caffiene free.
  • There is no Mormon doctrine which elevates one brand above another. Those who feel it is accaptable to drink Pepsi, have no moral issue with Coca-Cola. While those who avoid Coca-Cola because it contains the addictive drug caffeine also avoid Pepsi.
  • never heard of that
