Q: To drink in moderation or not to drink?
A: Neither & Both. Just don’t get drunk if you do.
Be filled with the Spirit, don’t judge or despise fellow believers otherwise, and walk in love towards those who may stumble.

I don’t judge those who don’t drink,they are the weaker brethren. We have to take care they are not offended.

The question is why would you even want to drink
Shawn Herles [09/14/2015 10:40 AM]
I don’t drink myself, for health reasons, but Jesus did and there is no biblical prohibition against drinking, just against drunkenness,
Brian Crisp [09/14/2015 10:50 AM]
Actually no Jesus never did drink any alchohol at all. The Jews especially at that time would refer to wine as alchohol, grape juice, grapes, or even jam. So when the bible says wine you have to study the whole context as to what it is referring to.
Alan N Carla Smith [09/14/2015 10:57 AM]
Brian go ahead and post the whole context here, if you don’t mind, so we can prevent the banter. Thank you
Brian Crisp [09/14/2015 10:59 AM]
LOL. That would be too time comnsuming to do that.
Alan N Carla Smith [09/14/2015 11:00 AM]
and Christopher might want to post his exegeis, concerning drinking, as well. Thank you

Brian Crisp your hypothesis deserves consuming time. So if you dont mind pls post the study for discussion. It will be helpful to many

The whole premise of the Cana wedding story is that you give the attendees good wine first, then bring on the not-so-good wine after they are a bit “buzzed” and can’t really tell. But Jesus made the water into alcoholic wine and it was the best yet. Jesus, being God, could have made Pepsi but he gave them wine. You really should read your Bible more…esp regarding new wine and wine. The instant the skin is cracked on a grape in that climate, it starts to ferment. They had no temperature or chemical controls to prevent that. And even if they separated alcoholic from non-alcoholic, we have absolutely nothing to say Jesus never drank alcoholic wine. “Nothing in unclean of itself…” As always, it is the human factor that makes things unclean.

Make no mistake, I do not advocate drinking alcohol. Do take issue with demonizing inanimate objects and substances. During the course of a deviated septum procedure, cocaine was used in order is help with the bleeding issue. Cocaine isn’t bad … it is how we use it. Always.

Evangelist Day, some people have what is called an addictive personality. The people we deal with can’t drink at all…..GOD bless you Brother.
