One comment: Human nature - give it one inch and it will take a mile! Am I right? Have you seen yourself with food? Or spending money?

Secondly: alcohol, in all of it's forms, not only smells nasty, tastes nasty and is a result of ROTTEN food products, it has no redeeming value whatsoever. It never has and never will.
The only people who are squawking about the alcohol issue are those who used to be drunks and are looking for a "biblical excuse" to get back something in there lives to help them 'deal with life'. This rational is a bunch of 'church growth' dung with the intention of getting people 'in' and not offending anyone so we won't lose them. All about the numbers. The same 'personal responsibility' mantra is used with R rated movies - just as many Christians plunk down there $$$ to see Hollywood’s filth and perversion as non believers, 50% divorce rate in the church (or worse), porn on the net, a little drugs won't hurt you, a little cussing is okay - it's all a weak, watered down message to try and make the Church to fit the culture, not the culture fit Christ. But, we've got to "love" everybody, right? Yeah, shoot straight with them and let the chips fall where they may. That's love,to tell them the truth. When the Dr. told me I had cancer and we have to remove it or you die, he did not say one day maybe or if you have time or blah, blah, blah -he said it is going to kill you - it has to come out now. So, Christian and those who would like to follow Christ - you had better be more concerned about getting sin 'out' of your life and less concerned with how can you sneak it back in, in little pieces, so you can enjoy it at your leisure. Sell out. Draw the line. Tell the truth. Are you scared?

Besides not getting drunk the other limit on our freedom in Christ is not causing others to stumble. That is why I have no problem having a drink in public here in DC but would never do that in BR, especially since I was on staff at HPC.
