Welcome to Saints Alive in Jesus!

With Ed Decker

 

We are in the process of moving to our new website

 

during the month of Sept..

as soon as we can

 

When complete, you will already be there..

 

during this time, parts of this website will be sort of not online here.

We are an "Apologetics" group, evangelical in nature and
generate research and study material, comparing groups such as Mormonism and Freemasonry with orthodox Christianity.

While our major ministry areas deal with Mormonism and Freemasonry,  you will find numerous other world religions such as Islam, as well many cult groups

and issues within the Christian Church such is evolution are   covered.

Wine


To drink or not to drink. That is the curious question. What does the Bible say about this?


I was a Mormon for almost 20 years, forbidden to drink wine, coffee, tea or anything else I had enjoyed as a heathen Episcopalian

I became a born again Christian in a Church that taught wine drinking …and beer and other alcoholic beverages were sin. I want to talk about that one mentioned so often in scripture.

Not much of a problem since I had been abstaining for 20 years already.

One day, some years back, I was having a meal with a leader in another mainline church, when the server asked us if we would like a nice wine to go with the meal and he launched into a “That is such a sin!” tirade that I almost got up and left the restaurant.

When I suggested that Jesus drank wine, He claimed quite avidly that the beverage Jesus and the Disciples drank was an unfermented wine. In other words, grape juice.

Recently, the subject came up again and I did some Bible reading

Wine is mentioned 233 times in the Bible. At no time is wine called a sine any more than money is called sin.

The 233 references deal with the use of it or the abstinence from it for certain men and certain times.



197 Old Testament

36 in New Testament


To believe or declare that Jesus’ first miracle was to convert water to grape juice is to defy the Word of God, and deal with the word fully out of context, that means being a false teacher.

Read the following scriptures and substitute grape juice or unfermented wine?? Silly, isn’t it. What sense would there being serving the good grape juice at a wedding and then bringing out the cheap juice after the guests have had enough good grape juice to not notice the w switch later one. And then the reverse when Jesus filled the jars with the very best grape juice??


I know the scripture about being a stumbling block to others. I have lived with that principle throughout my church leadership and pastoral life.

However, to refrain from drinking a glass of wine at dinner because it is sin does not line up with God’s Word.

The scripture clearly explains that moderation is the key to the use of wine. Yet almost every church makes it part of the sin life from which we must repent and flee.

So, who is right and why?

What is your pastoral stance on this and your justification for it?


And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
John 2:9

When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
John 2:10

And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. John 4:46

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. Ephesians 5:18

And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;1 Timothy 3:3

Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
1 Timothy 3:8

Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;1 Timothy 5:23

Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities.
Titus 1:7

For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not self-willed, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
Titus 2:3

The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
