Should A Christian Drink Alcohol In Public??
Reader, this is an interesting question, what are your thoughts? Is there any indication that Jesus drank alcohol? The Bible says that "wine is a mocker, intoxicating drink arouses brawling" (Proverbs 20:1).
"For years, well-meaning, sincere Christians have debated the subject of drinking. Let me be clear by saying there isn’t a single verse in the Bible that says a Christian cannot have a drink; although the Bible clearly warns about the destructive and addictive nature of alcohol (Proverbs 20:1; 21:17; 23:29-35; Ephesians 5:18) and is very clear that drunkenness is always wrong (Romans 13:13; Galatians 5:19-21; 1 Peter 4:3; Habakkuk 2:15; 1 Corinthians 5:11)." Yet the Bible does not say that drinking a glass of wine, beer or champagne is a sin. Drunkenness is a sin, forbidden by the Bible, but having one drink may not be wrong.
