Sorry Dan, I believe you are wrong. Jesus is a Holy Lord and King.<quoted text>
It's in black and white, LTM.
He did it.
....and there's nothing in scripture to tell us it's anything other than real wine-the alcoholic kind. Nothing. Zippo.
The Bible's been translated 16 bazillion times, and they ALL say "wine".
Only people who think Christ made a mistake (like you) twist and turn to tell us it isn't real wine so you can rationalize your fear of booze. Don't make your problem everyone else's problem.
the Bible calls strong drink that makes a person drunk unclean.
Jesus would not drink something that is unclean. or give it to someone else.
You have seen what ferment wine does to people, among priest and other clergymen, among family and friends.
Dysfunctional families, strong drink is a curse, God freed us from curses, not give us them.
If you want an excuse to drink don't use Jesus as your example,
ferment wine is the devils brew.
I don't drink Dan, but I have seen the evil because of the result of it. I hate it with a passion, it sucks the life right out of people.
Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit, ferment wine destroys the liver, brain cells etc.
Jesus won't give us fermented wine, or would ok us drinking something that would harm our bodies.
Do you smoke Dan .
