How many of you have never really known the truth about what the Bible says about alcohol? Growing up, I never was informed of what the Bible actually meant when it referenced different types of alcohol. For years I was under the impression that alcohol was only wrong if you made it take over your life. Seeing people, members of the church, out drinking a beer or two didn’t seem to register that they were doing something that was clearly against what Christ teaches us in the Bible.
I know that this is a post that many will simply disagree with and maybe someone will comment that I am wrong on my thoughts. I was there once and believed the same thing. As a matter of fact, I was the person who didn’t mind having a drink with a meal or even more. When you learn what the Bible really means when it mentions things in the Bible, it can be life changing.
I am not going to openly defend my comments on social media but I want to encourage everyone to take a moment and watch a sermon preached by a good friend of mine. The sermon will be at 9 AM on the Southern Hills church of Christ Facebook page. Links to stream the sermon are below.
Matt Lyndoe has spent a long time studying this topic in depth from the original languages of the Bible. His knowledge of the subject is impeccable. Everything that he mentions comes directly from God’s word.
