Sinful Living Will Bring God's Wrath
Excessive drinking is wrong and abstinence is commendable. When we are living in a sinful and wicked society where men and women bow down and worship idols of all sorts, we need to be careful how we live. Some years ago I attended a wedding rehearsal in a park in upstate New York where I was to conduct a wedding for some relatives. On that same day, a group of high school seniors were having a party celebrating their graduation. Alcohol was everywhere and drunkeness and excessive drinking by these young people was very apparent. I was shocked to see this. I had seen college students do the same but not students as young as these that day. That was over thirty years ago. The same still happens today. In a nation where such activity takes place among its young people, surely there is a place for Christians to abstain from drinking. Drunkeness is wrong. Abstaining from drink is commendable. The Bible teaches both.
