Response to Is Alcoholism a Sin?
Is Drunkenness or Alcoholism a Sin?
I think getting drunk and alcoholism are two different things.
We know from scriptures Noah got drunk, Lot got drunk and Jesus was called a winebibber.
The bottom line being;
All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
ALL things are lawful for you to consume, Caffeine, Cocaine, Hemp, Poppy, alcohol, ect.. But you should not be brought under the power of any and addicted to them and allow them to run your life.
Its obvious getting drunk or stoned or wired and posting non scents doesn't edify the person posting. (but all things edify not)
But being addicted to any of these things God created for our pleasure, means a shortened life of bondage to those things God created. (I will not be brought under the power of any)
God did not create things to bring us into bondage, but for His pleasure and our pleasure they were created.
What things are pure and not pure to consume?.. The Jews made up all kinds of fables, don't eat the pigs, don't eat shell fish, bla bla bla...
14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
Is consuming things a sin? No.
Is being addicted to things a sin? Perhaps against ones self.
