Hosea 4:11 reads (NKJV, emphasis added):

“Harlotry, wine, and new wine enslave the heart.

What’s the difference between "wine" and "new wine"? Is it that "wine" is alcoholic while "new wine" is not, or is there a different distinction?

    Do not be deceived by such false teaching. It is saying, like the Corinthians, “look at me and my special spiritual gifts!” ppl who have the gift to drink but NOT get drunk John Mushenhouse Terry Wiles
