Drunkards and Winebibbers

My husband preached an awesome sermon yesterday morning. If you get a chance, you should definitely watch it!

  1. I agree with him in that as a sober person, having to be around someone who is drunk is irritating and embarrassing. I used to have an associate who would regularly get completely drunk every Friday or Saturday night and make a complete fool of himself every single time.

    I also hate how our society has pretty much completely glorified getting drunk, especially in the media.

  2. I really appreciated this sermon. As a young woman that abstains from drugs and alcohol, I am pressured regularly from other people my age to drink. It's really pathetic. Alcohol is literally poison.

  3. With all due respect, and while I find this video to be based on truth and absolutely educational - I loathe drunk people... - I was laughing so hard that I had to run out to the bathroom twice. That is exactly what I think of drunk people. I remember I had to get wasted to be able to tolerate that intonation, those mimics, those gestures, and that immense and infinite stupidity time loop that they got hooked in. It was like the string theory of shamefulness coming to life. The microcosm in the world of inebriated and malfunctioning neurons. Quantum physics of brain cells that were turned into manure.
    That sermon is so epic that I have downloaded it and I'll be listening to it every time I feel down. Your husbands needs to be on national TV.

  4. Praise GOD! True blessing to have this opportunity to write you sir. I am so thankful to find a true man of God that honestly is real, obeys, walks with the LORD. I have not been long as a true believer, for a fact in my heart only the Lord could do is show me the Truth. He opened my eyes which saved my life. I go to church, problem is , the church's here just are not of true believing , to much world, materialism, and not fully teaching/preaching the Truth, all. I study, read and with the help of the YHVH, GOD. I have learned more of the Truth than going to these church's. Problem is I keep on searching for a true church of true believing leaders. More could be said, I know I truly do not deserve all HE has given me, so deeply thankful that by His grace/mercy their is a way, HIS Way. It is written, ""the truth will set you free.'' John 8. Thank you so very much, Blessings , in His love, Rosita Thank you for your time. (I did not understand of how to give my email, ...profile? (?)

  5. Actually up until the last century, most people drank nothing but alcohol because water was deadly....Jesus did not turn water to high quality grape juice as his first miracle..it was wine...

  6. New wine is juice. Wine itself in the bible is just that wine. In biblical times they did not have preservation techniques to keep juice "fresh" like we do today. Water was not always safe to drink so they would drink fermented beverages and most likely ferment their foods (think sauerkraut, kimchi, etc ancient ways of preserving). The passover supper at the last supper before the most amazing and beautiful day in history, Jesus is drinking wine. This would have been in March or April that he would have been drinking this. There is no way unfermented grape juice could sustain that long without fermentation. It would have molded as grapes come into season around July- September. The reason that guests were so impressed with Jesus' first miracle is because the ancient customs of that day, people would serve the "good wine" first and wait til the guests were drunk and water down the wine at the end. Jesus' miracle did not do that. If wine was simply juice why would Jesus say [33] For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil.
    [34] The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!" Luke 7:33-34. Jesus is saying here that he drinks wine. He did not abuse it which is what the bible considers a sin. There are many other points that I can say to prove that the idea that the biblical mention of wine, but I will not waste your time. However, I have one more point to make. I am a regenerated heart saved and held by the one true God. I used to be a drunkard. Before the amazing Grace of God saved me. However, I am not now nor have I ever been addicted to alcohol. I do drink wine occasionally. Not daily not even weekly. I enjoy it. I have had God literally stop me from putting a second glass to my lips so as not to become intoxicated. I know that the God of the universe is wise. Not everyone should drink alcohol. However, it is not a sin. In Psalm 104:15 David says that God gave us wine to make the hearts of men glad. So I think we can look at wine as a blessing from God for some. Some it is a curse. But to call something that God has made a sin or devastation to all? I think that is a bit over reaching. God Bless
