Default Proverbs chapter 20 verse 1

Wine is a mocker,strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise!

From my King James Bible!

Just something to consider!

Drinking is never prohibited in scripture only drunkenness. However Paul warns us not to do anything that may cause one to stumble. So a faithful Christian would not choose to drink, less he cause one to stumble. It is that everything is lawful but not everything is right thing. Grace is not a ticket to push the line.

Well, I would disagree with that because wasn't it Jesus who turned water into wine? And not just any old wine, but really good wine according to the wedding guests.

Paul very clearly tells us to be sensitive to the conscience of others, however, he was talking specifically about what was perceived as idolatry since the controversy was over meat sacrificed to idols. A very different situation from simply drinking alcohol. What if you are with a group of Christians who have no problem with drinking alcohol in moderation? I don't believe it would be a sin to drink at all. If there is no one there who is "weak" in their faith (Paul's word, not mine), then there is no harm in having a drink.

Now, don't get me wrong, I am not a big alcohol drinker at all (I could probably count on one hand the number of beers I've had in the last 6 months); but I was raised in a fiercely non-alcoholic, Baptist family and many of the arguments against it have always seemed a little weak to me.

"Eat, Drink and be Merry."

I don't know who said it, but it works for me.

Quote:
So I commended enjoyment, because a man has nothing better under the sun than to eat, drink, and be merry; for this will remain with him in his labor all the days of his life which God gives him under the sun.

And this was after they drank all the wine they had.

Jesus did say that we (the church) would do greater things than He did in his name. I've been working on changing a pot of water into Jack Daniels for years. I'm not there yet .. but one day ....
