IMG_6981BIBLICAL CONSIDERATIONS RE: DRINKING:

21st-century alcoholic content: beer (5%), wine (12%), whiskey (40%) | 1st-century alcoholic content: fresh squeezed wine (0%), fermented wine (1%), strong wine (2.5%)

is it the “excellent” way? [Phil. 1:9-11]

what is my choice modeling for other believers? [1 Cor. 8:13; 11:1]

world’s view: drinking-intoxication-addiction-disease-recovery | biblical view: drinking-intoxication-compromised conscience-release of sinful flesh-redemption/healing thru the Holy Spirit

could following/being filled with the Spirit be more intoxicating than intoxication?“Do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ…”  [Apostle Paul, Ephesians 5:18-20]
