    When YOU take the Lord's Supper does your church use alcoholic wine or grape juice?

    And ... why?

    Missionary told me they use orange juice in micronesia cuz grape juice is hard to get hold of.

    I've never been in a church that used wine.

    Grape juice here, because of the strong desire to abstain from alcohol. When I lived in Australia, the baptist church I went to used watered-down wine.

    Ditto here!!! Except when a member of the Prep committee gets a wild hair to save money on the juice----and he buys the "Sam's Best" instead of Welch's!!

    We use "kosher" concord, undiluted, having 12 parts alcohol--no third party verification required.

    We would submit that the alcohol in the wine suggests purity rather than sin and that grape juice or any other juice suggests impurity.

    The Lord's Supper has been adulterated with the doctrines of universalism and real presence. The real intent of "this do in remembrance of me" has been lost in legalism and pagan idolatry.

    Wine or grape juice is not a test of fellowship with us--open/closed communion, however, will schism the body--always has.

    Selah,

    Bro. James

    Manischewitz wine and unleavened bread made and bottled under the strict Rabbinical supervision.

    Grape juice. I believe the Lord would not have served nor would produce an alcoholic beverage.

    Can you provide a reasonable and biblical defense for this statement?

    The bread&wine 'funding' in my church is pretty generous. So (within reason) I get to buy good breads and fine wines.

    Your church actually has a Prep committee?
    I guess I'm my church's one woman Prep committee. ;)

    No, Jesus was a Jew, so He used only Manischewitz wine!

    :D

    Leaven is leaven.

    Salt is salt.

    Alcohol is alcohol.

    When did alcohol become leaven?
    Some consider salt to be leaven.

    I don't think so.

Luke 7:33-34 "For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say 'He has a demon.' The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, 'Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!'"

Read the chapter and you'll see that our Lord did NOT drink wine - neither was he a glutton. Since gluttony is without argument a sin, and Jesus did NOT sin.

    Origionally quoted by Soulman: I believe the Lord would not have served nor would produce an alcoholic beverage.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Innocent until proven guilty. Why don't YOU provide a reasonable and biblical explaination proving He did produce alcohol.

    I believe the very nature of God the Son would prohibit Him from producing and consuming a substance that would be so detremental to mankind.
