FYI: I ask these questions to somehow show bloggers the people in the Bible were more than just characters in a book. They were very much living, breathing PEOPLE LIKE US & we are extensions of them. If we can connect with that, then things we don't think are possible to understand might be shown, by the Lord, to us.

We're living, "2013 Bible" characters with all the good & bad characteristics of people in the Bible (Gen.-Rev.). Bible genealogies show character traits are passed from generation-to-generation. Should we be surprised we also have like tendencies?

Scripture always shows proof of human weakness and imperfection, to give reasons that the best of men cannot stand upright, unless they depend upon Divine grace,
---Mark_V. on 2/20/13


I suspect Noah was just trying to unwind & really didn't intend to get drunk. He had been a very busy fella with the extensive ark building project & the logistics of animal loading (large ones on first), & unloading (small ones off first). He probably got a lot of ridicule from friends, neighbors & family prior to "the never before seen" rain storm began.

Yeah, he was under a lot of pressure for a very long time. I don't envy his task. Afterwards, HE NEEDED A HOLIDAY!!! The vino hit him like a bomb & it was probably the first good night sleep he'd had in a very, very long time! :)

I suppose Noah got drunk because he knew way in advance someone in 2013 was going to ask why he got drunk and get alot of opinions, but never really get the whole truth. And guess what? It happened.

"If you were stuck in a boat with a lot of defecating animals, you would probably want to get drunk also."
---e.lee7537 on 2/18


E.lee: 1. Noah was off the Ark when he got drunk. 2. I thought about his 40/40 problem too. a. He would've needed lots of food for the animals. But eating wasn't the real issue! b. The Ark would be tossed about by the storm for 40 days & nights. The real issue was pandemonium of terrified animals? Many might've died as a result. 3. I didn't get it, so I asked the Lord, "why"? Then, I saw Him make Adam sleep, take a rib & make Eve. Then, I saw the animals on the ark peacefully "SLEEPING" (hibernating) the whole voyage. They didn't eat, so no feces! :)

HA-HA-HA! Very funnny! Not much is said of Mrs. Noah other than she was one of the eight survivors of the flood. I'm amused there's not one single word uttered by here in the Bible. I "suppose" she had plenty to say. Did she just go with the flow or, as you insinuated Bike, did she constantly give Noah an ear full? :) What do you guys think? Remember, this blog is "Why do you 'suppose' Noah got drunk?".
---Leon on 2/18/13


Usually people get drunk to escape from reality, i.e., situations & circumstances they're not comfortable with, & would rather try to avoid all together. Being in an altered state of consciousness (drunk) temporarily calms/numbs one's fears...

"We are living, "2013 Bible" characters with all the good & bad characteristics of people in the Bible (Gen.-Rev.)." Leon

So what? The hearts of man is filled with nothing but wickedness and evil until God Almighty changes the man. Mind you, that's not from me but from Scriptures.

"They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable, there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat is an open sepulchre, with their tongues they have used deceit, the poison of asps is under their lips: Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness." Romans 3:12-14

Leon, you now say, you have nothing to say to me, "now you are pulling a Kathr on me" The very answer she gave you. Don't you realize, it is a blessing to answer you, because I know if I answer you, you will answer back anyway. This last post I mention "Obama" and your letters got so big, I could hear you all the way to San Jose. Forget about Obama, he won already, too bad for all of us, ask some good godly questions, and receive the answers with a kind heart. No one is stoning you, that is all in your mind. But a fig tree, people before Adam and Eve, and you knew who was the groom at the wedding feast was, come on.
---Mark_V. on 2/7/13


RitaH, what you are witnessing is normal. Paul declared, "For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel", that is, not everyone here is Christian, though they think they are. You decide.

Then there are those who think they are eating meat but in truth, they are feeding others with nothing but poison that they themselves are eating. Hence Jesus said, "Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch."

Among the many sites around, I must give credit to ChristiaNet for being "open and objective". If you're not happy here, I'm sure there are those who will welcome you with open arms, if you want some peace and quiet.

Thanks for your open-mindedness my sister in the Lord. Many here are content to only drink milk. Like little babies, if you don't place the milk container in their mouths, they won't be fed. They're very resistant to chewing on, digesting, gaining nourishment & subsequent strength from the meat of the word (the Bible) the Lord has placed before them. They whine & complain, shake their little heads back & forth, purse pouty mouths & push Scripture solid food away. :)

May the Lord Jesus Christ continue to richly bless you & yours!

---Leon on 2/6/13


Moderator - why don't you put an end to this nasty arguing? Is it because antagonism makes this site more interesting to non-believers who might then take notice of the paid-for advertising which keeps this website afloat ?????

This is all very unChristlike and achieves nothing worth achieving.

---Leon on 2/6/13


Brother MarkV, it's important we must be able to discern who our "enemies" are, basically, those who opposes the Truth in the Bible. Don't be concern about their respond to you calling them your "enemies" if need be. That's because if they're "enemies" of the Truth, ie Jesus Christ, they are our enemies.

The word "peace" in Christianity is badly misplaced these days when being used by those outside of Christ. For He admonished His followers, "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword."

That is, other than the Gospel of Jesus Christ which brings peace between God and the sinner, all other peace offerings are profane before God.

"Let's say Noah was drinking, maybe just feeling "blue", little depressed or maybe they [didn't] have drinking water. So, you have to make due with what you have. Maybe he was a "closet" drinker."
---ELENA on 2/6/13


True Elena. It's very likely he was depressed. I suspect he may have made provisions for an abundant supply of drinking water before the flood. But, that supply only lasted the 40 days & nights & a short time (days, weeks) thereafter. So, like you said, they may not have had "much" potable drinking water left. That certainly could explain why he planted a vineyard.

Careful Elena! Open-minded speculations can get you into lots of trouble on these blogs. :D

"Shed light (Bible truths) on given subject"? And what's the given subject? Cursing and swearing? You're nothing but a hypocrite! Not to mention there's not a single shred of light in any of your blogs with all your questions of assumption not even base on Scriptural truth. And you dare talk about truth.

Esther_Aminat, do not fall into the trap of making excuses for the sins you commit before the Lord.

As for Noah's issue, you have dwelt into an area set up by one particular worker of iniquity to trap you. Notice, Scripture does not tell you why Noah got drunk but that he was drunk. This we all should and must know is because of the fallen nature caused by Adam. All have sinned and will continue to till the end of time.

For you to logic and reason to why Noah got drunk even when it's not written, is terribly wrong. That's considered as adding on to the Word.

Thx aka for your explanation. I don't consider my comments as attacks. Rather my goal is to shed light (Bible truths) on given subjects. But, there's an element of blogger who like walking in religious darkness & light offends them very much. Their attitude is "don't bore us with Bible "implied" revelations (understanding) ~ YOU CAN'T KNOW THAT!" I strongly resist their faithless foolishness, not because I don't love them, but because I do! Tough love usually isn't well received! :) Again, thx friend!

Mark: No one but your ego forces you to reply to my blogs! :) Obviously, you're still seething over my "blind spot" comments. You should be ashamed of yourself because of the ceaseless false allegations you make towards me & others. Your lies are from the pits of hell & smell like smoke!

I'm always happy when others go to the Bible & seek answers for themselves. Don't settle for & TAKE NO ONE'S WORD OVER WHAT GOD SAYS in His Bible (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth). That's what all Christians & others who are seeking the Lord must do.

Please grow up & be blessed Mark. I'm not your enemy! :)

---Esther_Aminat on 2/5/13


Thx Esther for your fresh perspective. Yes, Noah was lonely. When I look at him, I see a man who suddenly found himself being the oldest man alive on earth. His peers had all died in the flood. He had no men of his age to relate to. Talk about post tramatic stress!

I believe Mrs. Noah & daughters inlaw were together supporting one another like women do. As you know, men & women process problems very differently. :)
---Leon on 2/5/13


Aka, I told Leon the same thing. He puts this blogs that have no answers, and then ask you to answer, and when you do he tells others they have blind spots. I believe he must have some kind of books that have trick questions from Scripture. He has put a few of them lately.
One good thing it does to those who do not study much and like to answer, they begin to study the stories to find out for themselves. But then when you answer him, be prepared to get a very bad response.

We can be drunk with pride. This is worse.

"Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another, love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous, not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing." (1 Peter 3:8-9)

Yes, there are people who are a temptation not to do this, but Paul says to relate "with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love," (Ephesians 4:2)

He was a sinner. Thats why he was drunk.

I agree with the comment and putting halos on biblical patriarchs. Very wrong thing to do. These men were never righteous by how well they lived. They were righteous because they were servants of God. They lived by faith.

The worst of all likely being David. "A man after God's own heart". Yet he fell just like the rest of us. Impregnated another mans wife and then sent him away to the front lines of battle to be killed. Two of the most grievous sins mentioned in the scriptures. Yet he was one of Gods greatest tools.

There are none righteous. No not one.

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

So Leon, you're calling Noah a drunkard because he got drunk one time? Wow.

- and now, "Why do you "suppose" Noah or Lot got drunk?

If God wanted us to know, He would have told us, wouldn't He? All your foolish questions leads to nowhere but more questions with no Godly answers. At least Cluny has it right when he said, "Because he was a sinner, Leon, same as you, me, and everyone else who posts to these blogs."

Shira,

you're thinking of Lot and his daughters who seduced him.

Noah was drunk, and by some estimations was sodomized by his ham who saw his nakedness.

According to this theory, that is why Noah woke up and saw what his son had done to him.

Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard. When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent. It says he was "a man of the soil". I do not think he was habitually drunk or a drunkard. No drunkard goes to heaven. (1 Cor 6:10) His motives were not of Habakkuk 2:15 Woe to him who gives drink to his neighbors, pouring it from the wineskin till they are drunk, so that he can gaze on their naked bodies." Noah was a righteous man. "Cursed be Canaan!" came out of it. Noah is one of the three most righteous men in the O.T. Ezekiel 14:14,20 Even if these three men Noah, Daniel and Job were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign Lord.

"The Bible does not say...getting drunk is a sin. The Bible says "do not be given to drunkennness" or "do not be a drunkard"... Drunkenness is a lifestyle, often a very destructive lifestyle. What the Bible is talking about here is a lifestyle of being a drunkard. Not a one time or occasional occurance. A man can drink on occasion, even to the point of intoxication, without being a drunkard." ---Jed on 2/2/13

Really, says who Jed?! If you're occasional (habitually) drunk, you're a drunkard! Do you really think the Lord wants anyone to be intoxicated (drunk, in an altered state of consciousness, not in their right mind)? See 1 Peter 5:8. Everything that's against God's will is sin!

the bible said his daughters got him drunk. no way to know why he was weak and couldn't resist. actually it shows how dumb we are when we consume alcohol.

The Bible does not say that getting drunk is a sin. The Bible says "do not be given to drunkennness" or "do not be a drunkard". There's a difference. Drunkenness is a lifestyle, often a very destructive lifestyle. What the Bible is talking about here is a lifestyle of being a drunkard. Not a one time or occasional occurance. A man can drink on occasion, even to the point of intoxication, without being a drunkard.

This is the first written record in scripture of man making an alcoholic beverage. He may have made it not realizing what he had done.

it is the first written account, so it must be the first time anyone got drunk?

why do grown men and women insist on putting halos on biblical characters? and then why do we try to explain away sin and lack of faith and wisdom?

Abraham lied. As wise as Solomon started, he went out twice as foolish.

we want to hold fast to the childhood lessons and not understand the bible for all its worth. the condition of mankind (conviction) and God's redemption (Jesus the Christ). Jesus (the Logos) is our defense and not our wordy logic.

The bible does not say that drinking alcohol is a sin, it says that drunkenness IS.

There is no point in using scripture to accuse people long dead - let us all use scripture to get our own lives on track and to help US, alive now, to not sin.

Deuteronomy 21:20 says And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice, he is a glutton and a drunkard.

Similar verses are found in Proverbs 23:21, Proverbs 26:9, Isaiah 24:20, 1 Corinthians 5:11.

The excess is the sin and all excesses can lead to sin, even the excess of pointing fingers at each other.

After the flood there was less oxygen in the air, therefore he became intoxicated by drinking much less wine than before the flood. Also, it is likely that because he was in a different location than before the flood, a different bacteria fermented the wine, possibly at a much higher alcohol content than the wine he drank before. It was very possible that he got "drunk" by accident.

Jed, Good point!!! This is the first written record in scripture of man making an alcoholic beverage. He may have made it not realizing what he had done.
