Alcohol is Poison

Comments Off on Alcohol is Poison

I am stumped by the number of people that go to a church in general or claim to be a part of the Lord’s church specifically, that do not find it harmful to drink alcohol. Since there are exhaustive explanations out there against any possibility of social drinking being “OK”, I’m not going to add a lot of my own words. Why not just look at the warnings of the wisest man to have lived? Solomon says not to even look at it:

The lie of social drinking claims more Christians every day

The lie of social drinking claims more Christians every day

Who has trouble? Who has pain?
Who fights? Who complains?
Who has unnecessary bruises?
Who has bloodshot eyes?

It is people who drink too much wine,
who try out all different kinds of strong drinks.

Don’t stare at the wine when it is red,
when it sparkles in the cup,
when it goes down smoothly.

Later it bites like a snake
with poison in its fangs.

Your eyes will see strange sights,
and your mind will be confused.

You will feel dizzy as if you’re in a storm on the ocean,
as if you’re on top of a ship’s sails.

You will think, “They hit me, but I’m not hurt.
They beat me up, but I don’t remember it.
I wish I could wake up.
Then I would get another drink.” –Proverbs 23:29-35 NCV

Alcohol is poison – Don’t touch it. The “disease” of alcoholism was never caught by someone that never took a drink.
