IS IT WRONG TO TAKE ALCOHOLIC DRINK?

Q&A SESSION WITH PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.

QUESTION: Hi Pastor, firstly I just want to thank God for you; I have been healed through the Healing School. I was HIV positive but I went for the winter School in July and I thank God for my life today. I have a question regarding wine, when I tell people that drinking alcohol is wrong, they tell me “Why did Jesus make wine at the wedding in Cana if drinking alcohol is wrong”. Please clarify this issue for me; some people are refusing to listen to what I have to say about Christ because of this issue. Mbali from South Africa

ANSWER
Well, That means they are trying to pick issues with Jesus. Anyway, you know the bible didn’t say that drinking alcohol is a sin, he didn’t say that, he didn’t say that, what the bible says is for us not to drink in excess, and remember, he wasn’t making alcohol an issue at any time because he doesn’t want us to do anything in excess anyway, see, I mean he doesn’t want you to eat in excess or drink water in excess or anything you do in excess. So, what the Lord really tells us is not to drink in excess. I will read that to you in a moment and that is very important. But you know the more you grow in spiritual things, the more you live things that are unnecessary behind. growth is not just living bad things for good things, it means living good things for the best things. Let me read something to you from the book of Ephesians 5:18 “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; tells us not to be drunk with wine but be filled with the spirit.

The Amplified version says, “And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but ever be filled and stimulated with the (Holy) Spirit”. So, that’s what God wants us, he didn’t say don’t drink! No! He said don’t be filled with wine, don’t be drunk with wine. He says, be rather drunk with the Spirit, be filled with the Spirit, don’t be drunk with wine. So, don’t make wine an issue of your preaching when you talk to people about Jesus Christ because naturally, as they grow in the things of God, they will leave the wine behind, if they don’t find any serious benefits in it. So, it’s not an issue, don’t make it an issue. God didn’t make it an issue neither should you. click here to summit your questions

    Alcohol is a sin as stated multiple times within the Bible. We are not meant to bear clothes that show our wealth. Women should cover their hair, and not flaunt their sexuality or bodies. Alcohol should not be consumed. These are all sins we ignore, but the most important! Read the bible, feel, and answer for yourself. Its in plain text !
