When Jesus turned water into wine, does that encourage drinking?
This has always been refernced by chritians who tend to love drinking.
The wine in the days of Christ had a very low alcohol content and you would have to sit and drink it all night to get drunk from it. It is not an excuse to partake of a drink that is deliberately spiked with a high alcohol content. The two are not the same.
Whether or not to drink is between the individual and his or her Creator. I personally think a lot of accidents would be prevented by not drinking, and that alcoholics wouldn't be in the fix they're in if they never took that first taste of the stuff.

Jesus did drink wine. But the thing that the bible warns us about is drunkenness and "indulging in strong drink." I personally love popping cap on a bottle of Blue Moon or New Castle when I get home from work. Once I think I've had enough, I stop. It's the abuse of alcohol that is the bad thing. If someone is using the fact that Jesus drank wine as an excuse to get drunk, I'm sorry but, their living in hypocrisy.
Grace to you!

After reading and contributing to so many posts about Christianity on here I'd love for someone to answer this question. Which form (if any)of Christianity is the real deal? It's one thing to get into heated debates over who believes in what religion, but it seems strange to me that there are so...
