Joseph D. Absher I’m against false doctrine and legalism. I grew up not drinking. I am not a ‘social drinker.’ I’ll drink cough medicine if I need it, and wine in communion if they use ‘real wine’ (which some Pentecostal churches do, btw, in Indonesia and South Korea). I’m not trying to get people to drink.
But it is wrong for Pentecostals to look down their noses at believers who drink in moderation. And it is very wrong to condemn them to Hell for it.
