The bible does not say alcohol is a sin.a place in the bible even advised a man to take alcohol for stomach pains. but the bible also make it clear that too much of it is bad. so the problem is that many people take alcohol in excess which is bad. but alcohol in itself is never said to be bad in the bible.

luv,

When folks who can't control themselves with some "stuff" get in "positions" to make "law", they tend to gravitate towards their own desires, "if I can't enjoy it, no one should" mentality!

Soda and the like will kill someone way before beer if two people were to consume them at the same quantity through a certain period. Soda and most of the so called "juices" are worse than beer in case you still don't know.

A little drink every now and then is good for you, if you can't CONTROL your drinking then by no means should you even try a sip.

Matthew 15:11 (King James Version)

11Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

Listen Man, if you keep 2million dollar on the floor and put a sign Danger on it, tell me the truth how many people will jst walk pass it, due to love of money. It takes a wise man to walk pass it. The same thing with 2 barrels of wine. Your ability to say no/enough when due is what make you a wise man. That is why the bible said wine is Mocker whosoever is being deceived of it is not wise. Wise men knows when to say enough or no. I have met a lot people like that. No matter how many drinks you present before when they say enough they meant enough. When they wanna drink, they dont no matter how many drinks you present b4 them. though we live in a world where men are without principles, but despite we still got people with principles.

I guess you dont eat frog man, will it be a sin to prepared a frog to a Chinese visitor who visited your house? The answer is no. Where by you have no brewery in you house i wonder how a visitor can come to your house and get himself drunk. Meanwhile you can only offer what you have. If your do not drink alcohol i don't expect you to have one at home. Whereby u have non you offer what u have(juice/water/soda/ and if you any at home i see nothing wrong in serving your visitor with one even if you don't take it.

it does not mean that you take profit from scriptures and abuse them for your alcohol desires

Iwish thank all for your wonderful contributions. I can now confirm that Scripture did no condemn Alcohol drinking but with moderation. But where you cannot control yourself better abstain.

But as one who do not take alcohol, can you give your visitor/Friend alcohol or is it a sin to give someone what you do not eat?

I believe God deal with us individually and not collectively. That some people drink and get drunk, start misbehaving does not mean it should be generalised as sin. The manifestation of it is what matters. Some people get drunk, which might lead them into sin and i drink to relax at home before going to sleep. It is 2 different issues here. That is why the book of Proverbs 20:1 says

Underline whoever is deceived thereby is not wise. It did not say whoever taketh it. So for some people to let wine or strong drink deceive them does make it general sin. I do not advice people to drink anyways becoz is very difficult to maintain the limitation that is why i mostly drink at home.

That is also why some wise governments places high tax on Alcohols to limit its citizen from the intake.

Also, not all religions condemn drinking some are silent about it. Sometimes its the views of the teachers of the religion we advocate when we say do not drink, not the views of the religion itself.

the bible is not the refernce if you want to sin    Drinking or not drinking is firstly human desire  even you said that bible  does not condamn this action but depends on you to choose what is Good for you. specially this question often comes from no christians side  or christians but bound  to this world desires .  even the church says   drink  but in Good manner   no one will accept to just drink only one glass and say that is all   you can see why other  religions  say that drinking is sin

This has been one of the controversial topic in the bible, which i have tried to search for the real truth.

The only place i found in the bible that directly warn against wine and strong drink was in the book of Judges 13:4

and Judges 13:14 and this warning was directly by and to a single person, a pregnant woman, the mother of Sampson I guess.

Another Important place bible gave a warning about wine is in

Like some some people have already said, Drink wine is not a sin but the excess of it or getting drunk of wine. We can see the evil outcome of being drunk of wine in the new testament. Noah cursed a whole generation of his son out of drunkenness, Lot sleep with his 2 daughters out of drunkenness. I understand why some churches make as a doctrine, but not a sin, becoz many cannot determine the quantity intake where by they can get drunk, which might lead them into sin. So is better to stay away from it, just as Jesus said if you left hand will lead you into sin(hell fire) you better cut it off. So if you cant drink you better don't drink at all so that it will not lead you into sin.

Drinking wine is not sin but getting drunk is.

Even our Lord Jesus drank wine ,in fact his first miracle was the turning of water into wine.

The key word is moderation

Alcohol is no sin but too much of it is. . . .

Just like having money is no sin but the love of it is sinful. . . . .
