Does Jesus say drinking alcohol is to be avoided? There are many more scriptures on this matter. This article will look at just two of the more recent passages.
Is drinking alcohol a sin in the Bible?
Many Christians seem to think drinking alcohol is only a sin when it is done when one’s neighbor is ill. However, it is also a sin if one has a spiritual condition like addiction. For instance, Jesus says:
“But if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off; it is better for you to enter repentance, than having two hands to be cast into hell, into the fire, that portion of the lake that burns with fire and brimstone” (Matthew 6:18, 19).
When the disciples heard this Jesus replied, and said to them, “I am not coming to you to condemn you. I want you to go and sin no more. ” (Mark 7:24-26).
“Not everyone that says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21).
It is important to keep in mind that drinking alcohol is not just morally wrong, but in addition, it often times leads to physical or emotional problems. In one study by Dr. George M. G. Marshall Jr. who studied alcohol addiction in the 1950’s he stated, “Alcohol consumption produces many deleterious effects, such as emotional, psychologic, and even physical illness. These deleterious effects include withdrawal syndrome (ex- alcoholics who re-abstain from alcohol), increased susceptibility to infection by hepatitis and tuberculosis and increased incidence of heart disease and some forms of cancer.”
The Bible also speaks about this when Jesus said:
“The cup of blessing which you blessed is this; and the cup of bitterness which you poured out is that which is poured out for this unbelieving people” (Matthew 5:11).
Why don’t Christians like drinking alcohol?
Drink is a big sin, but it isn’t always a sin. Many people seem confused by this point, but what we are attempting to say is this:
Some people like drinking alcohol.
Because it is part of the social life of the day. It is the most convenient part of our daily routines. We drink to have a good time. It gives us just enough to feel like we are alive
