    Re: Is it wrong to drink coffee?

    I'm enjoying a cup of coffee right now.

    Galatians 6:14 - But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

    But coffee isnīt an ordinary drink. Caffeine is a stimulant, a drug. Bible says drunkenness is wrong and sin. I think it is similar with coffee since you get that coffee "high".
    What do you think? Is it sin? Or is only being addicted to caffeine a sin.
    I Corinthians 10:23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.


    Jude
    Exodus 20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

    Coffee is extremely edifying when it helps keeps people awake at church.....
    Those who seek God with all their heart will find Him and be given sight. Those who seek their own agenda will remain blind.

    The coffee pot is in the classroom where I do Bible Studies at our church. Guaranteed, the pastor's wife will sneak in from her class usually about 30 minutes after class started. She's always with the youth and their class. But soon as she starts sneaking in... I always say, "Hey Pastora, time for coffee?" We all laugh every time.
    Slug1--out

    ~At the end of the day, the Cross we bear... is small!~

    ~Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,~


    ~"It is one thing to speak God's name in a message but another to speak of God's standards in a message. The name of God is not removed from many a message today but the standards of God... ARE removed."~

    ~"Psalm 106:23 Therefore He said that He would destroy them, Had not Moses His chosen one stood before Him in the breach, To turn away His wrath, lest He destroy them."...
    So don't say that God never meant to destroy the Hebrews, to do so, makes God a liar.~

    I don't drink coffee, never have. Not a drop.
    I don't drink alcohol, never have. Not a drop.
    I don't drink tea, never have. Not a drop.
    Caffeine? Nope. Sugar? Nah.

    Do I win nirvana?

    (Of course it's not a sin.)

    Not sure about nirvana, but I think you would be most welcome in many Southern Baptist Churches.

    Looks like it. As long as you don't drink Kool-Aid handed out by the Left-Liberals, you should be OK.

    The Mormon church would roll out the red carpet for him and might even try to make him their leader.

    I'm not an SBC expert. Never been a part of one, but wouldn't alcohol be the only thing they might frown upon?
