Okay-I don't have a problem with people drinking alcohol but this is where I get worried. There's that "Type A" gene we have to remember. That's the gene that determines, and it's inherited, whether or not you will have difficulties such as addiction and alcoholism which that in itself leads to SO MANY other problems and heartbreak. I say if you drink, and there seems to be problems, stop right away before it takes control of your brain. Usually, though, those who have problems with consuming alcohol don't see it or they deny it. I lost a lovely beautiful daughter in law to alcoholism at age 36 last year. She tried EVERYTHING to stop. Yes it was a severe case but all I'm saying if there's a problem such as getting extremely angry, belligerent, and can't stop during a setting, it just may not be for you. For some people, the relaxing effect is not worth the outcomes later. Also, cases of alcohol poisoning among college and even high school students is appalling. Give me a nice breath of fresh air drink once in a while and I truly enjoy the time it took to invent and concoct it.
You can't believe in alcohol. But some people simply think it's bad or don't agree with drinking it because they don't think they could handle theirs. It's very healthy for a grown man to drink alcohol about once a week. Not too much; about a can of beer will do. This is because it sobers down the body and the brain and men have a lot of testosterone, which will place lots of stress on the body.
If you mean they don't believe in drinking alcohol, that is like asking why people do not eat certain foods they are not allergic to. Maybe the person does not like it. Maybe the person feels it clouds their judgement. Maybe the person had a problem with it in the past and feels that abstinence is best. There are any number of reasons. You would have to ask the individual to get an accurate answer....if they feel ok with giving one.
They (wrongly) believe the consumption of alcohol is a sin. Biblical scripture simply says: do not be a drunkard. *** Consider: until the developments of pasteurization, refrigeration, & carbonation, there were no "soft drinks". In biblical times, fruit juices turned into wine. Quickly. The only other option was water.
Consumption of small quantities of alcohol is a matter of Christian freedom. Drunkenness and addiction are sin. However, due to the biblical concerns regarding alcohol and its effects, due to the easy temptation to consume alcohol in excess, and due to the possibility of causing offense and/or stumbling of others, it is often best for a Christian to abstain from drinking alcohol.
You can't believe in something that's real and physical, but some people are against it because it can be dangerous, drunk people are a lot more open which can be bad, some people are a little afraid of it because of it's maturity, wtc
I don't drink myself. I'm a recovering addict, yes alcohol is a drug! God healed me. Don't even crave or want it. I really like having a clear head and knowing I don't have to wake up sick ever again because of what I had the night before. That being said, everything in moderation is fine. Christ made wine at a wedding! The problem with addictions is THEY become your god! Some people commit every sin there is to get their fix. Alcohol and other drugs can do that. I'm not against it in anyway. But right now is not the time to be getting drunk! It's time to be aware, keep an eye on the times and be ready.
