Re: Be not be drunk with wine... wine thread.
Your "scholarship" doesn't impress me. I never claimed to be a "scholar". It doesn't take "scholarship" to see that the word "wine" in the Bible doesn't always mean "fermented/alcoholic". Context will define which kind of wine is meant. That is the way I have attempted to show Biblical abstinence, but you and others come against everything I've posted. So carry on with your "scholarship" and I will continue to ignore you.

1 Corinthians 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
Why abstain if you believe that drinking is not a sin?
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. (Revelation 22:17)
