Thinking Cap # 3 - The Question: Alcohol and the call to "Moderation".
I've been wondering about this alcohol thing and the call to "moderation" on
the part of the Christian. Are we "Baptists" being a little narrow minded when
it comes to the use of wine and beer. Didn't Jesus turn water into wine and give it to
others to drink. Wasn't Timothy advised to drink wine? I'd really rather have something
more solid to go on than the canned, the wine that Jesus created was "grape
juice" answer and the "don't be a stumbling block" response. Is moderation
and balance the right stance for the Christian of 1995? As a Biblicist, seeking to
establish a thinking-man's world view, what say ye? Responses are due by midnight, Friday,
I heard from Jeremy Fisher (a homeschooled high school student), George Levesque, Ed
Komoszewski (three pages), Richard Degler, Pat Winters, Ron Tottingham, Martin Olson (an
extensive and good analysis), Ben Eynon and got several responses indicating that they
planned to get to that topic as soon as they had "time".
Here, for what it is worth is how I would approach this topic.
