If they are drunk how will they know which elevator to take???
---Carla on 5/29/11

It is often difficult to know how a person defines a word. Consider the question posed here: what does the questioner mean by drunkard? One who is regularly highly intoxicated, or one who drinks moderately? What do you mean Mima?
---Warwick on 5/27/11

10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor DRUNKARDS, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God".

I suppose Paul TODAY would be acused of being heartless and uncompassionate by saying this. It tells us just how far we are from teh truth.

Paul even goes as far as telling christians not to keep company with christians who are drunkards.

Heartless and mean..right. YET he says not an unsaved person. Why because an unsaved person who comes to Christ is and has the Power of Christ within not ot drink. Christians who are drunkerds display one Christ within..therefore, they blaspheme the very WORD, WORK and Change that is evident one is saved.
---kathr4453 on 5/21/11

For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.

But the righteousness which is of faith!
Speaketh on this wise.
Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven?
(that is, to bring Christ down from above:)

Or, Who shall descend into the deep?
(that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)

But what saith it?
The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart:
That is, the word of faith, which we preach!

But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

Sounds very clear to me, but who know, right?
---TheSeg on 5/3/11

This statement is correct.
"Mima, no sin is acceptable to God."

In fact that is the reason God sent his son to take our place on the cross and pay for our sins. So if he did (pay)remove our sins(and he did) have we then not been made" acceptable in the beloved".
---mima on 5/3/11

Mima, no sin is acceptable to God. And no, as to the order that you put you question.

"Can he go to heaven, be saved and be born again"

The order you put down is not correct either. He has to be born again, be saved in order to enter the kingdom of heaven.
All who are brought to life in Christ come with a lot of baggage and through his life, God, as the Holy Spirit removes most of the baggage we have through sanctification, but not all. At the resurrection we will receive a body prepared for eternity which will be without sin.
---Marl_V. on 5/3/11

PROVERBS 31:4 It is not for KINGS, O Lemuel It is not for KINGS to drink wine, Nor for princes intoxicating drink:

REVELATION 5:10 And have made us KINGS and priest to our GOD:And we shall reign on the earth. ( Believers are called KIngs )

TITUS 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lust, we should live soberly, righteously, and GODLY in this present age,
---RICHARDC on 5/1/11

1Corinthians- "9 Or know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with men,
10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor DRUNKARDS, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God".

It is not for me to condemn, but to sin is quite different than living in sin as a drunkard does. Also there is a vast difference from having a couple of drinks on occasion, (though some call this sin) than being a drunkard who is controlled by sin.
---willa5568 on 4/29/11

I had a similar problem, though on a smaller scale.

Neurological problems run in my family - epilepsy, bipolar disorder, etc.

I used to have bad twitches in my arms, under the skin. I found that drinking a beer took the twitching away.

Once I discovered that, I vowed that I would never drink when those twitches occurred. I didn't want it to develop into a crutch by thinking I needed to drink.

I believe God honored that vow, because the twitching stopped almost altogether. It's very rare now.
---James_L on 4/29/11

No, no sin is acceptable to God. People who misuse love to excuse sin are greatly deluded. That would be like saying I am married to my wife or my husband, and my spouse accepts and loves me eventhough I also yoke with a mistress or a beau. Nope, you cannot have sin and Jesus, ever since the beginning the choice is, Choose this day whom you will serve: God or self, right or wrong, Jesus or sin: choose wisely, for one way leads to heaven, and the other path leads to hell.
---Eloy on 4/29/11

mima, are you acceptable to God despite your sins?

Answer this, and you've answered your own question.

Christ is risen!
---Cluny on 4/28/11

This is a tough one. I struggle with it. I have a raging case of OCD (intrusive thoughts... not the hand washing kind). I have tried multitudes of medications and am on 4 right now just to keep me functional. Sometimes, the only thing which will shut off my mind is when I add a good portion of alcohol to the mix. I know it is not good for me... don't get me started. But, when my head is raging out of control it is often the only thing which will stop it and let me sleep at night. I am on prescription sleeping pills, anti-anxiety drugs, OCD meds (SSRIs) and a few others. I don't even like drinking. But, it works. This is a newer thing with me. After my last flair up this is my current state. I don't know what to do.
---Dave on 4/28/11

Mima ... why resurrectnold discussions? This have been done so many times before here, and recently. It will only make people cross again. If you keep bringing up the same old things, people will not contribute yet again.
---alan8869_of_UK on 3/6/08

You are asking us to state the fate of a drunkard and I can't do that because I dated one before I was saved and he's still an alcoholic to this day, but it's not the alcohol that's sending him to hell, it's his other sins such as murder (making his wife have an abortion), his awful pride, his cussing God, his mockery of the Holy Spirit, all this is sending him to hell and he doesn't care. He's been given the gospel and he said it repulses him and he doesn't believe it.

Do prescription drug addicts go to heaven?
Do smokers go to heaven?
Do gamblers go to heaven?
Do gluttons go to heaven?
Do thiefs go to heaven?
Do liars go to heaven?
Do pedophiles go to heaven?
Do murderers go to heaven?

What are the degrees of sin that keep you from heaven?
---Char on 1/4/07

If an alcoholic can go to heaven, then so can a heroin addict or crack addict or any addict. The problem is, it isn't the drugs or alcohol that is keeping the person from heaven, it's the stuff the person has to do to get enough of the drugs and alcohol that makes them sin.

Interesting question; in light of the Scripture, in 2PETER 7-8, "And delivered JUST Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:"

"(For that RIGHTEOUS man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his RIGHTEOUS SOUL from day to day with their unlawful deeds"---Please consider the following facts about Lot,he was definitely a drunkard, he committed incest with his daughters, he was very greedy and wanted the best land. This was JUST Lot.
---Mima on 1/4/07

Jesus Christ IS the ONLY WAY to God & Heaven. If that person has accepted Jesus Christ into their heart as Lord & Savior, then they can go to Heaven.

---frank_cos on 7/27/06

EMG: Sorry, I didn't look further back to see that she was not a drinker before she was saved. (That kind of invaladates my last comment) All I do know is that alcohol serves as an anesthetic for emotional pain.. lots of helpful programs out there.. But SHE must want to do it for herself. If she goes for any other reason, the program will not work and will only represent "failure" to her. I say PRAY. (and perhaps, with a counselor, a loving family intervention might work)

When we are born again we become new creatures, the old passes away and all things become new according to II Cor 5:17. Although you hear testimonies from those who were instantly cured of addictions at the time they were saved, it often is a gradual, sometimes slow, process. We should likewise be slow to judge. The Lord knows us as individuals and deals with us as such.Only God can know the heart of a man.
---Donna on 3/10/06

Thanks Rebecca. I have heard how bad withdrawal is, even giving up smoking, however, I misunderstood and thought you were referring to something different when you called in deliverance. Thanks anyway.
---emgq on 1/26/06

Like when someone is doing alot of drugs and they are addicted to it, and when they quit they go through withdrawls, they kick, scream, get mad. They are going through deliverance they are trying to be delivered from whatever has ahold on them. And during this process it is ugly because you want to help them, and they are fighting you, hating you, etc. After about 3-4 days of not having drugs, they calm down a bit, but still it takes time to be delivered from something such as drugs or alochol.
---Rebecca_D on 1/26/06

Rebecca, what did you mean when you said " Going through deliverence is an ugly thing?" Sorry to keep coming back on this but I don't understand much of it and I do need to know.

part 2 for molly, 1cor 6 has quite a few key words, such WERE some of you, but YOU ARE sanctified, YOU ARE JUSTIFIED." JUSTIFIED PAST PRESENT and FUTURE. now, I DO NOT advocate deliberate sin as I thought my comments have made clear, a person who is living in a perpetual state of continued unrepentant drunkeness or any other sin for that matter has a serious problem. rom.8:34 Who is he that comdemns; it is Christ that died..." we still live in the flesh and we are not perfect
---douglas on 1/24/06

part 1 for molly. Is says that our iniquities have separated between you and your God(broken fellowship) and your sins have hid His face from you that He will not hear you. even David said that if I regard iniquity within my heart surely the Lord will not hear my prayer. with confession and repentance comes forgivness. Paul told the cor. to remove a person that is living in fornication from the church "deliver such a one unto satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved"
---douglas on 1/24/06

A prayer cloth using ordinary oil will become rancid and stink something aweful in a couple of days. Oil with the spices, like of Ex.30 are therapeutic and will have a beautiful fragrance for years. God knew what He was talking about when He gave those ingredients to Moses for all the Priests and Levites and articles of the temple to be anointed with.
---john on 1/24/06

That scripture is plain as well. It says that the gift of salvation- the forgiveness of sins upon the confession of our faith in the Lord Jesus and the repentance of sin- is free. It cannot be bought with works. BUT, it is VERY evident in the scriptures (over and over and over) that if salvation has really taken place, THERE IS A CHANGE. If there is no change, there has been no salvation. And, you did NOT directly answer my comments below. How do you explain those scriptures?

Rom 4:2 For if Abraham was justified by works, he would have had something to boast about-though not before God.
Rom 4:3 For what does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness."
Rom 4:4 Now to someone who works, wages are not considered a gift but an obligation.
Rom 4:5 However, to someone who does not work, but simply believes in the one who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness.
---jonathon on 1/23/06

molly, "by grace are ye savad through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, NOT OF WORKS LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST." that is only one scripture Jesus Himself said that it is the Fathers will that He should lose nothing and whoever comes to Him He will NOT cast out. Salvation is secured, It CANNOT be lost. When we are backsliden and living with unconfessed sin He will not hear our prayers but our salvation remains secure or else Jesus is not omnipotent and able to save us.
---douglas on 1/23/06

Thanks very much Rebecca.
---emg on 1/23/06

Oil, any kind will do. I use olive oil. Take a plan shirt, maybe cut it up into squares. Many people use oil to anoint the sick, purifying the body, healing wounds, etc. The scriptue I used is Acts 19:12. God used Paul to heal people using handkerchiefs. Any cloth will do, any oil will do. It is the faith that works on the cloth and through the oil to touch people. Hoped I helped.

We are told to pray for afflicted and the sick. James 5:13-16 1John 5:14,15
James 5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

Acts 19:14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. 15 And the evil spirit and answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?
---Ulrika on 1/22/06

Acts 19:11, And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: 12 So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkershiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them. 13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. continued
---Ulrika on 1/22/06

I think Rebecca is referring to the Scripture in Acts 19:12 where pieces of handkerchief or aprons where sent to the sick from Paul's body and they were healed and evil spirits were driven out by them. I can't see the harm in praying over these and anointing them with oil. If you used the anointing oil of Ex.30 you would have an aroma that lasted for weeks.

emg ... One more thing to say, is that Giving up alcohol must be horrendous, to have to withdraw from something you have become so dependent on.. The support and love of family and friends is essential...I understand that AA have separate meetings for the spouses or families of alcoholics, and many people find this very helpful, and find out how they can support and encourage the alcoholic.
---alan8869_of_UK on 1/22/06

Rebecca, Where in scripture does it say to annoint a prayer cloth?
John 14:13 And whatsoever you shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you shall ask any thing in my name. I will do it. 15:16...that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. 16:23-27And in that day you shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
---Ulrika on 1/22/06

Rebecca, what do I annoint a prayer cloth with? When you say 'prayer cloth' do you mean anything in particular or just some cloth that I will pray over, or could it be something else (perhaps something the other person owns)? As you can tell I'm pretty new to this. I seem to remember a thread on here some time ago, when I was fairly new to C.N, about annointing oil but I cannot find it now. This is never mentioned in my church so it does sound rather strange but I really want to learn.

Douglas: "Rms.8:37-39 NOTHING SHALL SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD WHICH IS IN CHRIST JESUS." This scripture is very plain. Nothing will ever cause God not to love us- he loves even those who are in hell tonight, of their own choice. Being seperated from his love is totally different than being seperated from HIM.

EMG; if you will read Mark 5:1-13. I'm not saying your granddaughter is full of evil spirits, but she has a drinking spirit. There are many evil spirits out here roaming, seeking whom they may devour. Your granddaughter was just a babe in Christ, she may not have realized how this happened. Anniont a prayer cloth and pray over it, for your granddaughter to be delievered from this. Put it somewhere that is close to her but she doesn't know it is there. It's amazing what a prayer can do.
---Rebecca_D on 1/21/06

She must first realize that she has a problem and get back to God. But in order for her to realize that she has a problem she has to hit rock bottom. Althrough the book of Ps, David talks about being delivered from different things. Being delivered means to be set free from. She is in bondage. Acts 7:35-36 talks about how Moses and the people were in bondage, they needed to be delievered. But the people compained, they wasn't looking for delievance, because they wasn't expecting to be delievered.

When we repent and believe in Jesus as Saviour, we do not automatically become perfect. Many are able to quit sinful habits right away, and others struggle with sinful habits. There is spiritual warfare with every person. Satan tries to keep the unsaved from believing and accepting Christ as Saviour, and the saved from obeying and serving Christ. It is not for me to say who is acceptable to God. We should uphold eathother in prayer, and read scripture, this is our defense from temptation.

No. Your work towards salvation must be done down here in order to get to heaven. The drunkard needs to find God now. If he lays his life at an altar and cry out to the Lord for forgiveness and deliverance, the Lord will meet him and save him. But now is the is the day of salvation..while the Spirit of God is still moving in this Earth today..He can wash away sins even though they be red as scarlett.

I hope my answer in regards to the question was not misunderstood. Wording is very important. I am also recovered and set free from addiction, but the question implied a perpetual state of continued drunkeness.

Of course he can. If he repents and be comes red hot for Christ he will surely go to heaven. Did Christ not eat with the sinners? Does a healthy person goto the doctors?
