Is alcohol (Please save the lists of everything else that could be placed here. This thread is about ALCOHOL) beneficial to the life of the Christian and to society as a whole? Scripture says 23 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive. 24 No one should seek their own good, but the good of others. 1 Cor. 10:23-24 According to the Betty Ford Center, it is estimated that 10 -15% of adolescents who drink will become alcoholics. All of us influence people. Who will the Christian who drinks in moderation influence to drink in moderation and in turn that person becomes an alcoholic?
