Drunkenness
Posted On 08/03/2008 05:12:03 by PastorZomok

There are about 38 warnings in the Bible against over drinking.  Proverbs 20:1 tells us that wine and beer cause much trouble for whoever is led astray by them. We all are aware that alcohol abuse has caused accidents and the loss of life but it also damages the heart, liver and brain! If you are a Christian you know your body is to be the temple of God and you must set examples to others on how to live.  You want your life to be a witness to others. It is best to abstain from the use of wine and other alcoholic beverages if you are weak and lack self-discipline.

With the above stated I think an argument for moderation in the drinking of wine could be reasonably held.  Research does, in fact, show that drinking in moderation may actually be healthy and beneficial.  Nearly every day we can read reports about "Phyto-chemicals" found in Wine.  These are very good for people and help ward off diseases. 1 Timothy 5:23 even seems to suggest that small amounts of wine fight illness, so even the Bible seems to support moderation in the use of wine.

Well I need to put more ice in my glass so I think I will cut it off at this point.

I remember reading a dissertation once on how God's gifts like wine were perverted by man leading to more drunkenness.  If I can find it, I'll post it.  But it sums up stating God gave us wine to celebrate and is good for us.  Man made distillation to make alcoholic drinks harder and therefore perverted the gift of God.

Same in the vein of sex outside of a marriage.  Man perverts this notion thinking he's getting more out of life.  When it reality, he is missing out on a great deal.


At rate, good post..
