Tuesday’s Time

Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise (Proverbs 20:1).

The consumption of intoxicants did not have its origin in the 21st century. The defense of the consumption of intoxicants did not have its origin in the 21st century. The consumption of intoxicants by those who claim to follow God did not have its origin in the 21st century.

God’s condemnation of the consumption of intoxicants did not have its origin in the 21st century. God has always condemned the consumption of intoxicants, God continues to condemn the consumption of intoxicants and God will always condemn the consumption of intoxicants.

There are young people who champion the defense of the consumption of intoxicants, but God still condemns it. There are parents who champion the consumption of intoxicants, but God still condemns it. There are members of the Lord’s church who champion the consumption of intoxicants, but God still condemns it. There are preachers who champion the consumption of intoxicants, but God still condemns it. There are elders who champion the consumption of intoxicants, but God still condemns it.

It is reported that at present, in America:

1 out of 8 is an alcoholic

88,000 alcohol related deaths annually

30% of driving fatalities are alcohol related

$199 billion is the annual expense for alcohol related traffic fatalities

4,700 alcohol related teen deaths (more than all illegal drugs combined)

Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.
