Cool

In light of Proverbs 23:31, is the Christian allowed to drink alcoholic beverage? Please use scripture and not doctor's reports.

God's Word is the sole authority the true christian should rely on.

Proverbs 23:31 Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, [when] it moveth itself aright.

Choices were too broad. People are using their own presuppositions to give answers.

Yes, as long as a Christian does so in moderation and does not get drunk, he/she can drink beverages that include alcohol. He/she can also gargle with Listerine.

They didn't make Molsen's 2000 years ago!!! This topic is getting wearisome, and fruitless.

Cheers,

Jim

Yes, In talking about tithing, if the crops were abudent, why would the Lord want them to sell the crops, and go to the place of worship and buy wine, if it won't allowed in the first place?

Deu 14:22 Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year.

Deu 14:23 And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always.

Deu 14:24 And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which the LORD thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the LORD thy God hath blessed thee:

Deu 14:25 Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose:

Deu 14:26 And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household,

Deu 14:27 And the Levite that is within thy gates; thou shalt not forsake him; for he hath no part nor inheritance with thee.

I'm still looking for the verse that says a person loses the ability to reason after becoming a Christian.....

Now if we could only have a thread on the combined effects of card playing, long-haired men, dancing, reading CS Lewis, reading the NIV, going to the motion picture show.....

Yes, absolutely. Scriptuer clearly permits, and in some verses, praises the consumption of alcohol. But scripture clearly and abundantly forbids drunkenness and abuse of alcohol.
