“Do not gaze at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly!” Proverbs 23:31 NIV http://bible.com/111/pro.23.31.niv Does this passage forbid the drinking of red wine? I personally do not touch wine, however out of personal preference. But Red wine may be forbidden to drink period. What say you? Not interested in a debate on whether drinking alcohol is forbidden or okay. More interested in if the drinking of red wine is forbidden from scripture.
