THE BIBLE AND ALCOHOL

THE BIBLE AND ALCOHOL

Proverbs 20:1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.
IT MAKES YOU THINK YOU’RE 10’ TALL AND BULLETPROOF.

Proverbs 23:19 Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way. 20 Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.
IT MAKES YOU POOR

Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old. 23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding. 24 The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him. Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice.
IT MAKES YOU FOOLISH

My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways. 27 For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit. 28 She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.
IT LEADS TO IMMORALITY

Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.
IT CAUSES PROBLEMS—DOESN’T SOLVE THEM!

Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. 32 At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder. DEADLY 33 Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things. FOUL LANQUAGE 34 Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast. DO DANGEROUS THINGS 35 They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again. ADDICTIVE

NOW—Contrast the effects of the filling of the Holy SPIRIT Ephesians 5:18 as way of conclusion.
