I have heard pastors, church leaders, and school officials use Numbers 6:3 to aide their defense of teetolism and total absence from alcohol and wine. No doubt some of you do the same in your sermons and Sunday schools. However if you had read the whole chapter in context you would have come across verse 20 which gives the Nazarite permission to drink wine later on. I have read this in both ESV and NIV 84 so not sure what the other translations say. I say all this because when I was at BJU I heard Numbers 6 mentioned in chapels and class as a defense to the teetotalist argument which I can't find in the scripture, because the scripture does not forbid the drinking of wine.
