The Seq ... That just challenges whether every word or phrase of the Bible should be taken literally.

If we did, it would mean that you and I are both guilty of murder, theft, child abuse, rape, adultery as well as many more htings.

Don't you think that James may have been saying that God does not grade sin?

---TheSeg's answer seems to be correct.

As a Jew, it is inconceivable that Jesus never participated in a Passover Seder, which involves drinking several (4) glasses of wine while reciting many things, including the story of the Passover. "Wine is also a very integral part of Jewish laws and traditions. The Kiddush, a blessing prior to eating on the Sabbath and other holidays, is required to be said over wine. On Pesach (Passover) during the Seder it is also required to drink four cups of wine. (Wikipedia)

Mat26:29
This doesnt say I did.But kind-of implies I have.

But if you dont commit a particular sin,does it mean you are not guilty of it?
Cause James said
For whosoever shall keep the whole law,and yet offend in one point,he is guilty of all.

Now I ask that you forgive me!
But, it seems to me.If you try to keep any of the law,you are saying!I am keeping the law.Its like making your own righteousness.

Now,I am not saying go out and sin all you want!
But saying,just know no matter what you do,you are guilty before God.
And trust in the righteousness,that is given to you by God through Jesus Christ!
Not setting up your own righteousness,and killing your brother!

God Bless You

Eloy:

Very right. Many people commit crimes or sins while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and then claim they weren't responsible. Their root sin isn't the accident they cause, but knowingly taking the drink in the first place, knowing that it would impair their judgment later.

There was one episode of Law and Order where a woman died because she was given wrong medicine by a drunk doctor. They eventually argued that the real crime did not occur in the ER, but in the bar an hour earlier.

The Bible sometimes recommends wine for an upset stomach (or strong drink as pain killer for terminal patients), but always condemns drunkeness.

A wedding was a religious ceremony, and so wine was used. Not to drink it at a wedding (or a Seder, etc.) would have been an insult to the marriage. Although Romans 14:1-15:7 and 1Corinthians 8:3-13 predominately concerns meat sacrificed to Idols, and religious customs, we are to consider our weaker brother. In the 19th century, some U.S. Christians overreacted to the high level of wantonness and inebriation in society by starting the Holiness movement. The results were phariseeism, works righteousness, and a superior attitude (Romans 12:3, 6, James 4:6). They soon developed a set of beliefs with which they interpreted the Bible, like a Talmudist. Matthew 6:7, 15:17-18, Acts 15:5, 24, Galatians 2:4, Colossians 2:8, 16, 20-23.

sonofturbo, Thank you for the blessing, for God's Word says, "Blessed be you all when which malign you, and will persecute and say all evil word against you, lying falsely, on account of me. Rejoice and raise high, that the bonus plenteous your's in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets, them before you. For in the last days there will be mockers, desecrating speakers, slanderers, and not lovers of good."

"millions have had only one half of a drink and then went driving and lost their life and also those of others." wow nice "fact" i would like to see a weblink to the study that shows this, oh wait there is no such study because it would be impossible and you are repeating some garbage your pastor told you at church. Nice. Oh no here comes a verse from the bible watch out.
1 corinthians 10,23 : titled "the BELIEVERS FREEDO" : "Everything is permissible"-but not everyting is beneficial."Everything is permissible"-but not everything is constructive. verse 25: eat everything sold in the meatmarket without rasing questions of conscience.
---sonofturbo on 10/5/09


The Seg, You said it is faith that immunes a person from the judgment of drinking or it is not sin if done in faith and moderation, but that just is not correct. For many it is still a sin in moderation. Whenever a person chooses to drink alcohol they are accountable to be responsible for that choice, if it harms their health or another's then it is sin. I am not condemning all drinking of alcohol, but rather I am not a promoter of it because the casualities resulting from imbibing it outway the benefits. As God commands, I always judge righteous judgment. Alcohol is a drug, and in the consuming of it it should never be taken lightly, millions have had only one half of a drink and then went driving and lost their life and also those of others.
---Eloy on 10/5/09




By now, Im sure you know, anything you do in excess, is not good for you.
Even water! Are you saying your father believed he could drink all he wanted, with no consequent? Youre trying to call this faith?
Is this what you see in what I wrote?

Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith.

I know this. You will see him again!

For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.

God Bless You
---TheSeg on 10/4/09


The Seg, Sin means wrong. Scripture tells us that sin is: "To one that knows to do good, and does not, to that one it is sin." James 4:17. For some drinking a drink is excellent, to some drinking a drink is sin, it is not dependent upon faith but upon what is right and wrong to the individual. My earthly father drank, and to him it was sin, but still he continued to drink with full faith in his drinking, and so the end of his sin was cirrhosis (cancer) of his liver and premature death. I do not recommend drinking alcohol to anyone, because the negative consequences of it- addiction, impaired judgment, fighting, car crashes, deaths- outway the positive effects.
---Eloy on 10/4/09


No one can tell you drinking, is not a sin!
Anything you believe to be sin. To you, it is!
Because you dont believe, have faith in it.
You dont trust it. Ill stop here!

So try not to hold what you see as sin against me.
Ill try not to hold, what I see as sin against you.(believe me, I see very well)
I know! I am guilty before God!
I dont need you too, help me sin!
I can do that all by myself, amen!

Oh yes, what is sin?
Anything that is not of faith is sin!

You can say:
If I have faith, I can do it, I can
Are you asking me or telling me?

God Bless You All
amen

Several here have demonstrated that Jesus drank wine, so yes, Jesus drank wine.

Paul told Timothy to drink a little wine for his stomach.

So, how do we view wine consumption today?

Proverbs 20:1, "Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, and whoever is intoxicated by it is not wise.
Proverbs 23:31, "Do not look on wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly..."

Both these passages in Proverbs in context is admonishing people not to drink to excess. Don't get drunk/intoxicated.

what is wrong with someone drinking a beer or a glass of wine in the comfort of their home? that would not be wrong. what's wrong is when they drink in public and give the wrong idea to others. if you think its sin, then don't drink.
---Bobby1 on 10/3/09


After they ran out of wine Jesus said, "Fill the waterpots with water, draw some out and take to the master of the feast." When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine he said, "Every man at the beginning does set forward good wine, and after men have well drunk, then that which is green: but you have kept the good wine until now." This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee. John 2:7-11. "For John the Baptist came neither eating leavened loaf nor drinking wine, and you all say, He has a demon. The Son of man is come eating and drinking, and you all say, Here a gluttonous man and a wino, a friend of worldly ones and sinners!" Luke 7:33,34.

"We all know what would happen if we drank arsenic: death (it would kill our bodies). The same applies to alcohol. Shall we kill/destroy the temple of the Holy Ghost?" (James)

No, but you should research all the scientific studies that actually prove that drinking alcohol in moderation is benficial for the health. Ever heard of the "french paradox"? Tons of Scientists/doctors recommend drinking wine in moderation. You know why?

Alcohol doesn't kill the body if taken in moderation. Drinking a glass of wine or a bottle of beer is not a sin nor is it against Holy Scriptures. If you believe otherwise, give Scriptures. I doubt you can (Lawrence and others could not).

If alcohol kills and destroys like arsenic, I wonder why Jesus made it and drank it?
---alan8566_of_uk on 9/30/09

Because as all the naysayers claim, it was only "grape juice".

---alan8566_of_uk on 9/30/09


If you take this verse out of context and apply it to the tangible, it would mean that arsenic among other things would not "defile." We all know what would happen if we drank arsenic: death (it would kill our bodies). The same applies to alcohol. Shall we kill/destroy the temple of the Holy Ghost?
---James on 9/30/09
You don't honestly mean to tell me that wine will "kill and destroy" when the Bible says it is good for the stomach, and most modern medical scientists say it is also good for the heart. It is not arsenic.

If you want to be that way, you have to rule out french fries and boston creme pies as well since they will "kill and destroy" if eaten in excess.

My lord clearly said there is nothing from without a man that, entering into him can defile him.

But, you say, drinking wine is a sin.
And to you it is, for you made it a sin!

But you, yourself are not guilty of this, are you!
Yes, you are all clean without!

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

You can not judge, you will kill yourselves!

Mt 11:16-19 ....The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.
---------------------------------------
If this verse and accusation are true, how can it be said that it was NOT alcoholic wine? I certainly don't think he got drunk, but the Pharisees had no grounds to even accuse if it was simply "juice".

Then too, I would ask you to point me to the two disticntly different root words for wine in both "be not drunk", and turned "water into wine".
---obewan on 9/8/09


Jesus made wine, John 2:3-11, "and his disciples believed on him." In the New Testament, except when it used allegorically in Revelations, G3631 oinos means fermented wine. In verse 10, G3184 methuo - drunk means to be mildly intoxicated as there are many verses that prohibit drunkenness. A Christian may not break fellowship with his brother over the issue, Romans 14:1-12 (This says "doubtful disputations", or allows the one to drink, or not), Galatians 2:11-14, 4:9-10, Ephesians 4:1-3, Colossians 2:16-23. Also, to say that it wasn't alcohol because you are offended, does not change it to trux - unfermented wine. Teaching to the contrary comes out of the 19th century Holiness movement, not scripture.

Maybe the New Interpreter's Study Bible (NRSV) accurately translates John 2:10

"Everyone serves the good wine first, and then the inferior after the guests have become drunk, but you have kept the good wine until now."

In any case, such events as weddings, anniversaries and other celebrations, are all too often an occasion for participants to get drunk.

Frankly, such always causes unwelcome problems.

\\ Don't worry bro. people are always for a way to SIN.JESUS did not drink fermented wine.........\\

The grape harvest was in mid-August to early September.

The Passover was late March to April.

How did they keep the grape juice from fermenting without refrigeration, pasteurization, or preservatives?

In fact, what do you get when you crush grapes?

If you say, "grape juice", you're wrong.

You get wine. Fermentation starts immediately.

If you closely examine this Scripture, you will be surprised- Jesus EXPLICITLY SAID He drinks wine: Luke 7:33,34. The purpose of these two statements was to tell the Pharisees they were lying (exaggerating)about what Jesus did in moderation. In other words Jesus says: John did not drink wine and you call him possessed, I drink wine and you call me a drunk! Very clear. Also, Jesus would not have turned water into the best wine in the world, if wine itself was the sin. It is always excess of anything that is sinful.

And yet sugar has far more harmful results than a glass of wine. john

I know some in the health food industry say this but as far as I know this is not true. I do not eat pork or unclean food.

I wonder if Jesus taught not to drink coffee or eat candies? john

These and some other points depend on the conviction of the HOLY SPIRIT.

Your question I will answer this way. No Jesus wouldn't promote harmful products, he would teach us how to use them properly so they wouldn't harm us. john

The problem that if a product is harmful should we use it at all? Both Cigarettes and Heroin are harmful. So you think JESUS would recommend their use.

Samuel. "would Jesus promote a harmfull drug?" Did you know that sugar is a common ingredient in bread? And yet sugar has far more harmful results than a glass of wine. How about pork? We are allowed to eat that as long as we give thanks. But it's no good for us. I wonder if Jesus taught not to drink coffee or eat candies? Your question I will answer this way. No Jesus wouldn't promote harmful products, he would teach us how to use them properly so they wouldn't harm us. Go read Deut 14 and you will see there is a place for wine and strong drink.

Nonetheless I believe it's wrong to blame alcohol, or any 'thing' for creating a problem.

Some people are workaholics, others are addicted to prescription pain-killers, or anti-depressants.

Most of my family and friends drink alcohol in moderation, enjoying it, finding it relaxing.

The problem is abuse, not use, of medication, alcohol, drugs, motor vehicles, sex, etc.

I respect those who choose not to drink alcohol, but my respect is stretched thin when people condemn that which God does not.

I had an Alcoholic father. I had friends killed by drunk drivers.

Alcohol is a drug.

October, 1994, Health After 50 Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions in Baltimore The article makes several good points:


Those who took more than one drink per day had a higher risk of heart attack and stroke, along with cancer, liver damage, and other problems.
Antioxidants, the beneficial ingredient in alcohol, can be gotten without the risks of alcohol by eating deeply-colored fruits and vegetables.
Alcohol elevates estrogen levels in men and women, which lowers the risk of heart attacks, but elevates the risk of breast cancer in women and can result in a loss of potency in men.

Would JESUS promte a harmful drug?

Luk 7:33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and ye say, He hath a devil.
Luk 7:34 "The Son of man is come eating and drinking," and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!
---john on 6/12/09


Don't you think our esteemed Bible scholars and translators would have differientiated between "wine" and "juice" if there was a difference? I mean, even the King James uses the word wine for everything.

We have one verse saying "be not drunk with wine", and another saying "wine maketh glad the heart of the King", and of course the famous water to "wine" miracle.

I really think we do a disservice when we distort or form scripture to suit our own often biased views. It looks foolish to the non-believers. We are lumped with those who say babies are found in the cabbage patch.

"In Bible times water could not be purified so wine was actually more healthy"
And
The yeast on grape juice could be killed by boiling, but then as soon as the juice cooled, it would attract the yeast spores in the air, and fermetation would still start.
So not possible to prevent fermentation except in tightly sealed containers.
Conclusion ... If it was grape juice, it would start fermenting (and that would mean wine) very quckly and could not be kept alcohol-free for long

Americans have added their own Halakalah and oral tradition to this because of pharasetical thought processes and to protect people from sin. It causes a backlash of rebellion.

The truth is the truth. Don't be irresponsible and stay away from anything that diminishes the power of God in your life!

Mat 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

Can you show me Scripture that says Jesus did not drink wine?

Why was He mocked as a winebibber?
Was it only due to the company that He was ministering to?
Do you understand the meaning of the first miracle of Jesus Christ?

What will you do?
Will you be calling, once again, for God to strike the Shepherd, and the sheep of the flock to be scattered? Matt 26:31
