Times When a Christian MUST Drink Alcohol (1)
I've also sought to argue that the statement, "I don't think it's a sin to drink a beer," may be profoundly unhelpful in the context of current American society.
Tomorrow, I will seek to demonstrate somewhat the other side of this discussion. In particular, I will argue that there are at least three instances in which a Christian may find him-/herself in which he or she MUST drink alcohol, not merely as an option, but as a positive moral necessity. These instances will be examined in order of most easily discerned, yet least important to least easily discerned, yet most important. A Christian MUST drink alcohol when: 1. medical wisdom dictates alcohol should be ingested to prevent/cure certain ailments; 2. wine is used in communion; 3. an abstinence-only position regarding alcohol threatens to displace the gospel truth of justification by faith alone.
