Why I Never Drink Alcohol
Forty-six years ago, in 1971, the Lord graciously saved me from a life from sinful destruction, which included very serious drug abuse and some heavy drinking as well. From that day until today, I have never abused drugs again or had a sip of alcohol, other than taking Communion with a taste of wine when that was the only option.
Do I believe that the Scriptures require total abstinence for all believers? No, I do not.
Do I believe that Jesus literally turned water into wine in John 2, even if the wine was not as fermented as today? Yes, I do.
Do I believe that some Christians can drink some alcoholic beverages in moderation without sinning before God? I certainly do.
