Does The Bible Forbids Taking Of Alcoholic Drinks Or Strong Wine?

Since the bible teaches about moderation, can a christain also moderate his/her drinking level or is the bible totally against alcohol drinks ??

not much of a drinker myself and someone a very good critic at that esp when it comes to matters of the church and Bible.

over time i have come tot bout the issues and here is my conclusion

the Bible is a Lil controversial about the matter of alcohol at one point its condemning it

then another its approving of it so i pull me self from the bible and view it from two angle

1. obedience

2. moral

1. Obedience

my dad has never asked me not to drink though has asked me if i v ever seen him drinking

so i say to u ll whose dad has said to u do not drink thats drinking is a SIN.not the drink in itself

but the act cause by drinking you have disobeyed Ur dad or guardian.and we all agree disobedience

is a SIN

2. Moral

simple Wat's the societies idea if u re were its accepted its okay drink on and if its illegal or looked down upon

then friends what are we saying, kiss your beer goodbye

and try not to bad month men of God they view the word from an angle we dont really like to c from.

Well that is Dr Olukoya's opinion, as is evident, Jesus christ whom i serve and believe in used to drink wine while he was here with us on earth. So who is Dr Olukoya to condem drinking. What the bible says is bad is excessive drinking, my submission is that Dr Olukoya is quoting the word of God outside it's context.

There is nothing wrong with drinking alcohol if it is done in moderation.It is when you now drink yourself to a stupor that you dont know your left from your right, this is where there is a problem.

Anyway in saying that , we should all remember that too much of anything is not good, be it alcolhol, food etc.

I'm afraid.I read it in a weekly publication of the mountain of fire and miracles ministries."FIRE IN THE WORD" that drinking is bad.Do you want to tell me that Dr. D.K Olukoya doesn't no what is saying?Rem,those are the kind of powerful men of God am talking about.Up to you.

So how do you determine who is a powerful man of God? Some people would tell you Rev King is a powerful man of God others would say he is a demon. The problem is that human beings focus too much on "Men of God" than the Word of God, in effect a lot of people are left confused becos these Men of God ar just men like you and i and they are presenting their opinions to you has the word of God. i once challenged a pastor who told me that drinking is a sin to show me it is written in the bible and the flimsy answer he gave me is that when you become a christian the holy spirit would minister it to you. How hypocritical?? when Jesus christ himself used to consume wine.

we CAN ignore and overlook words of 'powerful men of God' for the simple reason that they are MEN and their interpretation is subject to their own bias because they were neither authors of the bible nor can we effectively prove that God specifically told them to tell us anything.

Actually am confused!

Since it cannot be proved that do not drink can be find in the bible!

That means you can never be convinced on that platform.So,my advice is that be yourself.But we can't ignore or overlook to words of powerful men of God.You no!

The topic is "does the bible forbid taking of alcoholic drinks or strong wine?" so if you can't point out to us were the bible forbids it, i suggest you keep your opinion to yourself. There is nothing controversial about the topic, it is only hypocrites that want to present their words and opinions as God's word that are causing this whole wahala. Even Jesus Christ used to drink wine and was accused of being a drunk. Luke 7 :33-34 That is not to say he ever got drunk, but the emphasis is that hypocrites have been around since the time of Jesus condenmimng the drinking of wine.

Hmmm!This is a verry controversial issue.It's been argued over years.Even,strong men of God preached against it but the same remains the case.People don't want to hear the truth.The worst part is that people read the bible and give it their own interpretation.Don't you know that the devil is indirectly ministering to you?You are so adamant that your decision is impenetratable.The fact is that THE ALCOHOL IS NOT SWEET.So,how do you people manage to enjoy it.Just for the sake of feeling among!Too bad.Repent

The bible tells us that we should not allow alcohol to control us.

A lot of Christians do not believe in drinking, like me.

Very well written, i never even knew our lord Jesus Christ ws critisized for taking alcohol just like some hypocrites critisize those of us that indulge in alcohol today. I would post the passage you referenced for all to see even though i know it won't stop our over zealous hypocrites from giving their opinions as scripture

Luke 7:34:

34The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, Behold, a Man Who is a glutton and a wine drinker, a friend of tax collectors and notorious sinners.

The above statement was made by Jesus Christ himself concerning himself.

Deuteronomy 14 :26 When you arrive, you may use the money to buy any kind of food you want—cattle, sheep, goats, wine, or other alcoholic drink.

1 Timothy 5:23:

23 Don’t drink only water. You ought to drink a little wine for the sake of your stomach because you are sick so often.

I beleive the above two passages answer the question, even though some people would still want to state their contrary hallucinations. There are also several other passages that says christian can drink alcohol, i won't even bother to be labour the fact that Jesus turned water into wine or served his disciples wine at the last supper.

Well, I'm not sure if the bible forbids such but I do remember the bible saying that strong wine and alcoholic beverages are not suitable for "Kings" I imagine in this day and age that "King"means leader/or someone who leads.
