  1. Brother and Sisters In Christ

    2 John 1:9 (KJV) 9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 2 John 1:10 (KJV) 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into [your] house, neither bid him God speed: 2 John 1:11 (KJV) 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

  3. Treasure in Heaven

    I have a couple hundred dollars in silver coins, silver rounds, and a silver bar. They were given to me by a millionaire friend who fears the dollar will fail completely in the near future and silver will be most valued. I could spend the dimes, buffalo nickels and silver dollars, (only worth about $18 in a supermarket, but valued at $78 online) if need arise.  The rounds and bar would have to be sold to a collector. But, I hold on to them, not to be miserly, but because they were a gift.
  4. Does God allow alcohol?

    Acts 2:1314 does not say new wine is alcoholic. in fact, it proves just the opposite. The statement in verse 13 proves that they knew the only type of wine the Disciples drank was new wine.  They were not accused of drinking aged wine, but new wine.  New wine is freshly squeezed juice, and non alcoholic. Keep your bartender Jesus.  I will serve the one who has nothing to do with alcohol.
  5. Does God allow alcohol?

    Jesus was not drinking alcohol.  He was accused of drinking alcohol.     The scoffers were falsely accusing Him,... Just as you do when you claim as they did that he drank alcohol.

  7. Does God allow alcohol?

    The "who" in verse 29 are the "they in verse 30... Not the "thou" in verse 31.  The " who" are already partaking of the alcohol.  The "thou" is not.  Instead, the "thou" is told to not even look upon it. There is absolutely no connection between the drunkards in the former and the one instructed to abstain. in the latter.  Nor is there any indication that the person being addressed as "thou" in verse 31 is allowed to partake of the alcoholic beverage that the drunkards of verses 29-30 are drinking. The instruction is to abstain from the alcoholic beverage altogether.. It is quite evident that the ones that  "blatantly misuse the Scriptures" are the ones advocating drinking of the fermented beverages.   And yes, if you are following a christ that made alcoholic beverages, who allows the drinking of alcoholic beverages, then, yes,... you are most certainly following a sinful christ, a deceiver.  
  8. Does God allow alcohol?

    I accept what Scripture says.   it says Look not upon the wine. The wine my Jesus made was not alcoholic.  If your Jesus made alcohol, he is not the sinless sacrifice needed for the redemption of mankind.     Bartenders are robbers of home, health and life.  Apparently the god of this world has so many blinded to that reality.  With subtilty, he tells his servants, "Did not God's Word say, Look thou not,...?  God doesn't want abstinence."   And thousands believed the lie.

    Highly doubtful that you would be arrested for drinking grape juice.  No alcohol content in it.  Breathylizer would show no alcohol.m
  10. Does God allow alcohol?

    Yet, your bartender Jesus whipped up a batch of intoxicating wine..  What a sinful Jesus you promote.    
  11. Does God allow alcohol?

    3184  μεθύω [MEQU/W] {methýō} \meth-oo'-o\from another form of 3178; to drink to intoxication, i.e. get drunk:--drink well, make (be) drunk(-en). See Greek 3178. The Greek for "well drunk" does not only have the meaning "to drink to intoxication," it also can mean "to drink well."  The wine Jesus made was not alcoholic.  It allowed one to drink well, yet did not have the power to intoxicate.  Jesus is not a distributor of that deadly poison known as alcoholic wine.
  12. Does God allow alcohol?

    Sorry CF, but the context proves you to be wrong.   Look at the prownouns in Proverbs 23:29-30.  Who has woe?  "they" Now look at the pronoun in verse 31, Look not "thou".   English lesson for you.  "They" in 30 and "thou" in 31 are not speaking of the same person.  "They" are said to be drinking.  "Thou" is told not to even look at the alcoholic beverage.Context clearly teaches total abstinence. why is "Thou" instructed not to look upon the beverage?  Because "thine" eye shall behold strange women; "thine" heart shall utter perverse things, etc.. 31 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. 33 "Thine" eyes shall behold strange women, and "thine" heart shall utter perverse things. 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. 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.      
  13. Does God allow alcohol?

    The only "glaring errors" are that of your defense of a drink that has caused thousands upon thousands to die and enter a Christ-less eternity.  A drink that is responsible for battered wives and battered children.  A beverage that God's Holy Word says not even to look upon.   That, and your promoting a christ that is a manufacturer of that drink.  A christ that others who are just as deceptive as the drink he manufactures.  A christ that has your heart on him instead of on the Christ that came to save mankind from their sin.

  15. Does God allow alcohol?

    No, I am not contorting Scripture.  Rather, I am allowing Scripture to interpret Scripture. Proverbs 23:31 is not saying to "take care when drinking wine."  In the four verses that precede the instruction, we see problems associated with those who drink great amounts of alcohol. Then, Solomon warns his son, Proverbs 23:31 (KJV) 31 Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, [when] it moveth itself aright. Why would he warn his son not to look upon the fermented drink? Because, it is deceptive.  One may think he is in control, when in reality the drink is controlling him. Every drunkard begins that life of sin by ignoring the instruction not to look upon fermented beverages.  Proverbs 23:31 does not say stop drinking after you have had one or two,... it says not to look upon the wine in its alcoholic state.   Nothing in the John 2 text says that the wine Jesus made was alcoholic.  Your version has a alcohol distributor delivering alcohol to a party where the guests had already well drunk.     That may be your Jesus, but it certainly isn't mine.     There is no command to boil wine in the Bible.  Yet first century writers, such as Cato and Columella record that the Jews were in the habit of boiling their wines.  Common sense tells me that since God's Word said not to look upon the wine when it is fermented, those who would want to please God would do anything possible to avoid that deceptive beverage that causes one to lust for women, utter perverse things, become a brawler, reel and pass out As I said, your Jesus may permit you to partake of that drink that bites like a serpent and stings like an adder.   Mine does not.
