Alcohol not prohibited?

Why is it that when a Muslim says he doesn’t drink alcohol, no one pressures him about it, but when I as a Christian say I dont drink alcohol, people try to get me to take a sip?

Someone told me that a Christian’s faith isn’t taken as seriously as a Muslim’s.  That’s sad.  There are those who say to me, well you haven’t tried the right alcohol in the right environment, and oh!  You must have had a bad experience and need to give it another try.  Please.  If I could curse, I would.  Just because Jesus’ first miracle recorded was turning water into wine, we dont see him actually drinking it, do we?  Nor was he drunk with wine ever.  On top of that, the ‘wine’ they had in the past, I surmise to be much different from the wine they make today.  Ask any wine connoisseur.

Just because its not nationally known as other religions, that true, orthodox Christians DO NOT TOUCH WINE, doesn’t mean we are less serious in our faith about it.  It is not fit for those in the Kingdom of God to pollute the body with such substances, especially just to enjoy life.  Besides, it also ruins your liver.  I like to also have comeplete control over my motor skills and be sober enough to fight the demons in the world, which enter through the gates of alcohol. 

Proverbs 20:1
Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.
Proverbs 21:17
He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.
Proverbs 23:20
Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:

Proverbs 23:30-32 

30They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.

 31Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. 32At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.

 Proverbs 31:4
It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink:
Proverbs 31:6
Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.

My God

My God

Is the only God who has risen from the dead
Is the only God the has claimed to be the only Son of God
Is the only God who said He is the only way the the Father
Is the only God who said we can do greater works than Him in His Name
Is the only God who said He is the Alef & the Tav; the first and the last

Others that are worshipped were people who were made into gods by men or given a false immortality.

 

 

 


Sinner’s Prayer:

Dear Lord & Father, You are the Creator of all things and I know you created me. But I recognize I am a sinner through Adam's Fall and you sent your only Son, Jesus Christ to live, die and be raised from the dead for me. I repent of my sins and renounce all evil works and serving of other, lower, and lesser gods before thee. Come into me life and cleanse me by your Blood. Make me whole and well by your Holy Spirit. I now desire to live for you. Let your Holy Spirit guide me in all things. In the Name of Jesus Christ, AMEN!

Scripture of the Month-March

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

Things to consider:

Jesus never charged for His Sermons, Preaching, Healing, etc...why should we put His Anointing on books, tapes, and cds, and charge people for it? I recall How angry Jesus was when the leaders of the Church of His time altered the purpose of the temple and made it a business. Shouldn't we too, be afraid to do the same? UPDATE: a minister pointed out, He didn't have to because His own people were financing Him. They were wealthy...
