The wine debate thread is about to close and I still have a couple of questions for the pro-alcohol crowd, so I am starting this one. Q1; Is it ok for a Pastor to drink alcoholic beverages? If not, because of what passage of scripture. Q2; Would this apply to unbelievers or only brothers in Christ? Rom 14:21[It is] good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor [any thing] whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak. Q3; It appears that you brothers and sisters that are here defending your drinking rights are offending us who believe it is wrong. So do you intend to stop drinking for the sake of those of us here who are offended by it? How about those in your own home congregation who are offended by alcohol drinking? Do you care? Do you love them enough to tell them you will not drink alcohol anymore? It would make my very happy if you all promised me that you will stop drinking alcohol and promise to never touch it again. Care to make me happy? Or don't you care if I am happy?
