This week I listened to Dr. Erwin Lutzer answer a question on his broadcast from a person interested in discussing alcohol consumption. The question had details about her church which has some problems with their statement of faith and constitution/new members agreement as far as new members agreeing to not use alcohol in any form at any time, or they cannot join the church (in good conscience at least). The pastor of this church believes alcohol use is permissable, as long as people aren't getting drunk, or as long as they aren't drunkards. Some in the church agree with him, while others do not, so they are having a rift. Dr. Lutzer illustrated his response by talking about his visits to Germany. While visiting there, Dr. Lutzer talked of German Christians as drinking beer, and often, never thinking about it as wrong, and, that these Christians were devoted to God, and are spirit-filled believers who live for God. Can their stance be true and right in your opinion? It seems they enjoyed beer daily. A good couple of beers daily at a sitting, or more, can certainly cause one to get 'buzzed' yet these drink it without conscience and I cannot believe they don't get quite 'merry' in so doing. Has culture in the US caused unfounded guilt upon Christians for consuming alcohol?
