(Let me try this "all CAPS" thing and see if people can hear me better...lol)WHAT DOES GOD HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THOSE WHO DRINK ALCOHOL?
There are countless verses that show us God's displeasure in those who choose to use alcoholic substances and the negative effect alcohol will have in your life. Here are just a few verses:
1 Corinthians 6:10 lists drunkards among those who will not inherit the kingdom of God. "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, NOR DRUNKARDS, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God."
Galatians 5:21 "Envyings, murders, DRUNKENNESS, revelings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have told you in time past, that THEY WHICH DO SUCH THINGS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD."
Proverbs 23:19-21, "Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way. Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: for the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty."
And even though society tells you that drinking is fun, that people who drink are social and attractive, and that a little wine is good for your health, the Bible tells us something very different:
Proverbs 20:1 "Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise."
Isaiah 5:11, 22 "Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink. "
GOD DID NOT SAY DRINKING ALCOHOL IS A SIN, IN FACT, JESUS, WHO IS GOD IN THE FLESH, DRANK ALCOHOL AND MADE A BUNCH OF IT FOR WEDDING GUESTS AND SERVED IT TO HIS DISCIPLES.
HE SAID "DRUNKEDNESS" AND WHAT YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE DRUNK AND NOT IN CONTROL OF YOUR ACTIONS IS A SIN.
There, I feel better.
