If you don’t know, this is a post that helps you the reader to become more acquainted with where I – the author of this site – stand on various topics and theological points. Keep reading to see where I stand on today’s topic.
I have no qualms with it so long as you follow Scriptures warning to not be mastered by it (1 Cor. 6:12). If you are concerned that you cannot control yourself than you need to stay away from it.
I almost always stay away as my stomach tends to get sensitive to acidic stuff and that includes alcohols–in other words, health reasons. With that said, that does not mean I would flat out refuse to drink a glass of wine with a meal ever. It comes down to a judgment call for me in which I actively consider the state of my health–same as I would with any other consumable.
There is more I want to say on this topic but as I am currently researching it, I won’t say at this time. Come back later to see what I have to say then. I will say that the additional items will include views on prohibition (teetotalism) as well as use of real wine in communion.
Note: I do these posts not because I think I’m somehow superior in my views or anything absurd like that but out of a desire to be up-front and honest with my readers as to where I stand. Otherwise, you’d be left to figure things out by reading between the lines and/or guessing.
