Alcohol vs Christians

This is my reflection on the matter. Please have your Bible and open up these verses for a better understanding.

For years, Christians have debated the subject of Christians drinking alcohol, bad or good?.

To be honest and to be very clear, there isn’t a single verse in the Bible that says a Christian cannot have a drink.

Although the Bible clearly warns about the destructive and addictive nature of alcohol (Proverbs 20:1; 21:17; 23:29-35; Ephesians 5:18) and is very clear that drunkenness is always wrong (Romans 13:13; Galatians 5:19-21; 1 Peter 4:3; Habakkuk 2:15; 1 Corinthians 5:11).

The Bible is also clear that mature Christians should avoid causing others to stumble by drinking (Romans 14:21), and that leaders ought to avoid drinking alcohol (Proverbs 31:4-7) and cannot be given to drunkenness (1 Timothy 3:3, 8Titus 1:7).

In my opinion, as Rusaka, based on these scriptures that God is warning us from drinking alcohol, I can come to a conclusion and that Christians should not drink alcohol.

With the Holy Spirit in us, we are called to be wise, but, drinking wine, we are led astray to not being wise. We are Christians, We want to go to HEAVEN, to the KINGDOM of God.

what is a kingdom? A kingdom is a state ruled by King, and our King is GOD and as through his words in Proverbs,” it is not for kings to drink wine, not for rulers to crave beer “the answer becomes simpler, if our ruler and our King cannot drink wine, are we his follower to do the opposite?

The answer is, we should follow God. Meaning drinking is not good for people in the Kingdom of heaven.
