Wine is a mocker,
Strong drink is a brawler,
And whoever is led astray by it is not wise.
–Proverbs 20:1 (NKJV)
There is a lot of pressure to drink booze. Recently, some churches give their approval, or even push drinking. This is the formula for causing believers to stumble.
Aside from Paul telling one of his struggling pastors a little wine is good for the stomach, the Bible is very negative about drinking. Find out for yourself by looking up words like wine, drinks, and drunk in your concordance.
If you don’t drink, you’re saving money and potential embarrassment for doing something you’ll regret later. If you’re a Christian and you do drink, remember your actions may cause others to stumble.
If you truly want to know what God thinks about drinking alcohol, ask God. You’ll find out what He has to say about it from His Word.
Be an encouragement to the lost and dying world around us… not a part of it.
