The tips of some of my fingers are split open because of Winter dryness... so shall I keep this post short. In my life time there were many preachers and teachers who have twisted the scriptures for their own purposes and agendas, and the subject of wine always comes up. I don't much care what the real answer is-- but please just give me the TRUTH!! The truth is that many people on earth abuse certain things and have no self control, so they feel they have to make pigs and gluttons of themselves-- and there by harm others. But that factor doesn't give license to some pastors who take it upon themselves to change the true meaning of the Bible! I found some very good reasoning in the article about wine-- concerning so-called 'forbidden fruit' that makes the desire all the worse. I tried to be balanced with my own 3 kids, though falling on my face a number of times, but my intentions were good.
What EVER man creates, makes, discovers, some evil person [ perhaps with the aid of demons] always manage to corrupt that good thing... like dynamite which saves intensive labor of miners and workers, but instead being used to make bombs to kill many other people. Some say that God made life very hard to survive for Adam and Eve after they were kicked out of the Garden of Eden, so they couldn't cook up more mischief and evil-- the flood in Noah's time too. 'You will eat your bread by the sweat of your brow.' BTW, even Americans will soon feel the same way with so many woes visiting the earth in these 'Last Days.' I laugh at those goofs who continue to 'sit on the fence,' those scoffers of God's Word...Ha!
Pray for our Christian brothers in Japan.
