LOL...Bond checking in. I was wondering where you were on this one. EVEN THOUGH you pretty much stated your case when this thread was first created back in '92. Talk about "bumping" a thread...lol

'92! lol, yeah that was a minute ago. There's another one around here somewhere.

See my thread dealing w/ weed outside the US. Would you tell a Christian from the Netherlands to light one up? It's not apples and oranges (maybe from an American centric view point). In a handful of countries weed and liquor are legal. I'd like to see your view articulated within those contexts.Mine remains the same everywhere. Avoid things that impair your judgement.

No, what I said was apples and oranges was you comparing CRACK to alcohol. That is the very definition of apples and oranges. Could I condemn someone in another country for smoking weed when it's legal? No. Could I have an open discussion with them about the motives of why they do it, or how far they'll go with it, or comparing the effects of being drunk to the effects of getting high? Sure. However, drinking does not equal getting drunk. So, therefore, comparing drinking to smoking weed is still not even an overly valid argument, although it's the closest thing you have to a point.

Tony, do you drink coffee? That will offend a portion of our European brothers and sisters who don't drink that, yet they drink a glass of wine with their meals.

I second and third that.

First when I saw it, I thought, "Naw...no one who's already posted on this thread will RESTATE anything. This thread will surely find it's way back to the HCR thread cemetary."

I tried not to contribute to it by posting but when I was Bond my fingers started itching and I had to say something. eh well.

Ignorant and broad blanket statement there.

I enjoy the taste of a good beer...NOT some cheap American light beer that doesn't hardly have a taste. Wine, well I only like a couple, but that's just b/c I don't particularly like wine.

Not ignorant!! its a broad statment but not ignorant. If you drink fine do you!! i dont and provided a nice site. Plus there are non-alcholic beers too if you want some!!

Take and read.

The fact is, brothers and sisters, there is no rigid instruction in this matter, because each situation for each Christian is unique and distinct from another’s. However, there are Biblical principles to guide us in the way we should go, as can be shown by the aforementioned passages. What we must avoid is trying to make commandments out of our personal convictions of things which are scripturally indifferent, lest we be hypocrites like the Pharisees.

Read the WHOLE thing before commenting on one part of a paragraph.

With your bible open. :)

To me the witness is more important than social drinking. There are countless times you hear People discrediting Christians for smoking weed, drinking and acting just like everyone else.

Some athletes are not even allowed to go to clubs, drink, ski, party etc because of their skills. We strive for a higher Calling in Christ, no alcohol is not really a bad thing :).

The same could be said about listening to rap music...... there's plenty of people (see the G. Craig crowd) that consider ALL rap music to be of the devil, only associated with rebellion and have nothing redeemable about it at all.

The same could be said about Christians wanting larger TVs in their home because they've been blessed with the money to do so....they're just following after everyone else.

Ultimately, you don't have linguistic grounds for your beliefs. While you may hold them for you, they are not universal nor can you impose them as such.....

Ultimately, I'm voicing a need for balance in the body not some leg wing extreme thoughts.

Actually, you said total abstinence from alcohol and made some pretty weird and broad statements (i.e.- people don't like beer for the taste on an earlier page). That's extremism, not balance in any way.

Thankfully, the Bible provides balance on the issue.

Simply - Psalm 104:14-15 aren't oblivious to the effects of alcohol on the human body. God made wine that way for a reason....to make the heart of men rejoice.

Col. 3:17 tells me that there is a way in which we can do even the mundane (every day) things that gives God glory. Romans 14:23 tells me that with some issues, there may be weaker brethren whom I should do my best to not make stumble because some of the things we are *free* to do may still hold pagan connotations for them and their consciences may be injured in doing so. That also applies to myself.

So if I can't do something in faith without it causing my brother to stumble, while around him, I won't do it.

So if you've got an ex-alcoholic past, I won't be pouring the Reisling around you. I don't want you to lose self-control and end up drunk again, thus heading directly into sin.

But if it's your personal conviction not to drink, you don't have a right to attempt to impose that conviction on me as a universal biblical truth. That's the extremism you need to avoid.

Note the difference between having an issue with stumbling around alcohol and simply having it as a personal conviction that alcohol should not be partaken of.

Thanks. Take care.

Thanks. Take care.

I'm going in another direction bro, I'm not making extreme cases here just voicing my opinion just like you. You can say the same argument about "convictions" concerning, smoking, drinking, eating, movies etc. View my last post and call it a day. thanks

No. I don't think I'll ever drink, not because I think it's wrong, but I just don't want to. *Shrug*

*bump*

Actually, it was 'Hadouken' but yea I use to say 'allyouken' (eat) forever until I saw the animated series. 'Hadou' was the name of the Hindu technique that Ryu and Ken practiced that gathered the spiritual energy around them to... wait a sec. What does this have to do with the thread?


No.

I don't drink beer. It is an abomination to me. If I can't have a long island ice tea on the rocks than I refuse to consume any watered down alcoholic beverage. I prefer strawberry lemonade these days as well as good old fashioned horchata for kicks. 'These' drinks alone are worthy of my hard earned cash.
