The Sin of Drinking Alcohol

Those who wish to drink alcohol will go to almost any length to justify the use of it. Habakkuk says “WOE UNTO HIM THAT GIVETH HIS NEIGHBOUR DRINK…” A person drinks alcohol because of the effects it has on his body. Some in trying to justify “social drinking” argue that a little drinking is not wrong. But you cannot do wrong in moderation. One cannot lie or steal in moderation. One cannot commit adultery every now and then and still go to heaven. Drunkenness is wrong and is a matter of degree of intoxication. If 5 drinks will make on “sot drunk”; one drink certainly impairs one to a certain degree. One is simply more incapacitated than the other. Alcohol is a narcotic drug requiring more and more consumption to satisfy the craving it creates. Even a small amount is sufficient to start deadening the control centers in the brain. Isaiah 28:7 says ‘BUT THEY ALSO HAVE ERRED THROUGH WINE, AND THROUGH STRONG DRINK…”
Alcohol is the way of eternal damnation. A devil’s hell beckons from the first drink onward. Alcohol’s most devastating cost is the loss of souls in eternity.
