Far too many Christians like to defend social drinking. The question is which is the better lifestyle for Christians and non-believers alike? Two choices 1. Total abstinence. 2.Social drinking.

The downside to social drinking.

1. Had Noah not been a social drinker he would have not gotten drunk. (Genesis 9:20-26)

2. If Lot had not been a social drinker he would not have gotten drunk and committed incest. (Genesis 20:30-38)

3. If men were not social drinkers they would not become poor due to their drunkenness. (Proverbs 23:21)

4. Social drinking precedes drunken men staggering in their own vomit.(Isaiah 19:14)

5. Non-social drinkers are not lead astray by intoxicating drinks. (Proverbs 20:1)

6.  Teetotalers will never be prevented from entering the kingdom of God because of their unrepentant drunkenness.(Galatians 5:21...drunkenness....those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.)

The upside of abstinence.

1. Teetotaler will never suffer from alcohol poisoning.

2. Teetotalers will not have to endure liver disease induced by alcohol consumption.

3. Teetotalers will not experience dementia that is caused by alcohol abuse.

4. Teetotalers will not be affected my the adversity of cognitive function brought on by mild to moderate drinking.

5. Teetotalers will not commit crimes while under the influence of alcohol.

6. Teetotalers will not abuse their families due the influence of alcohol.

7. Teetotaler will not be unemployable due alcohol abuse.

Statistics from the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc.
Alcohol use was a factor in: 37% of rapes, 15% of robberies, 27% of aggravated assaults, and 25% of simple assaults.

There has never been a single person killed by a teetotaler in drunk-driver accident caused by alcohol consumption.
