Is it stated in the bible that drinking is a sin? Now don’t get it twisted just like there are scriptures such as thou shall not kill, steal, fornicate, commit adultery and etc. is it in the bible thou shall not drink? I don’t want to hear your interpretations of scriptures and your opinion on whether you think it is or not, I want to know what the bible says.
Okay been talking about this for a little over a month now during our bible study. One deacon was to bring back some information to the next bible study and others were asked to research as well.
We discussed the issue of drinking during bible study on this past Wednesday night and we came to the conclusion that it is not stated in the bible thou shall not gamble. Now we all know that drinking can be a bad thing but so can eating among other things.
My point is that the church spend too much time trying to condemn folk saying it is biblical and they can not prove it by showing it in the bible. Condemning it per one belief and from experience is one thing but to say it is in the bible is another.
Why are churches always talking about drinking when there are things going on in the church that are clearly spelled out in the bible but you don’t want to touch that? Okay I know the church and Christians are not perfect but the goal is to work towards perfection. How can that be when you allow things to go on knowing it ain’t right and never address it because don’t want to hurt brother, sister, mother, deacon other titles and pastor feelings? Oh so you want them to die and go to hell living a sinful life when you know that you need to go to them and talk to them about what they are doing. Well many don’t want to go because they may have some baggage of their own. We all got something but when we hold each other accountable for our actions, we can move onward toward perfection.
Folk there is nothing to debate about is drinking a sin. It is no more than going out buying an expensive car, house, dinner and etc.
You ain’t winning souls by talking ignant about what is not in the bible.
Yes a Christian can encourage others to try to live right and that is a good thing but just don’t say the bible said.
