Alcohol criticism not very biblical
May 3, 2016
In response to Victoria Peargin’s letter, “Alcohol shame to Christian witness” (April 20), I write this as a lover of Christ Jesus.
In regards to the pastor who opened a business that serves beer, he should be loved and not ridiculed.
The writer quotes the Bible, but I have read the Bible several times and it is full of passages acknowledging the joy of wine, which Jesus himself created at a wedding.
Of course, people need to be responsible and know their limits within the law, particularly when it comes to drinking and driving. God gave us a mind and judgment to use.
