Is social drinking acceptable for Christians? Judgement and motor performance are negatively affected when involved in moderate drinking of alcohol. Impairment starts with the the first drink of alcohol. People drink because of the intoxicating effects. Remove the alcohol and social drinking would be reduced to coffee, tea, lemonade, sodas, and milk shakes. No one drinks alcohol because it tastes good.

Drunkenness is always preceded by social drinking.

Proverbs 20:1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, And whoever is intoxicated by it is not wise.

Does social drinking lead to wisdom?

Proverbs 21:17 He who loves pleasure will become a poor man; He who loves wine and oil will not become rich.

Is wine drinking the gateway to prosperity?

Proverbs 23:20 Do not be with heavy drinkers of wine, or with gluttonous eaters of meat;

Does social drinking lend itself to a poor choice of friends?

Proverbs 23:31-35 Do not look on the wine when it is red, When it sparkles in the cup, When it goes down smoothly; 32 At the last it bites like a serpent And stings like a viper. 33 Your eyes will see strange things And you mind will utter perverse things.......

Is social drinking harmless? No Christian honestly believes that social drinking is harmless.

Romans 14:21 It is good not to eat meat or to drink wine, or to do anything by which your brother stumbles.

Who does not know of a Christian who has stumbled because of drinking alcohol? Wine drinking is not a good example to be setting for fellow Christians.

1 Corinthians 6:10 not thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

Show me a social drinker who says they never get drunk  occasionally and I will show you someone who has a problem with telling the truth.

A thief who seals infrequently is still a thief.
A murderer who kills infrequently is till a murderer.
A drunkard who get drunk only on special occasions is still a drunkard.


The Christians who like to feel good about their social drinking like to use the wedding feast at Cana as their proof-text to justify their alcohol consummation. (John 2:1-12)
If Jesus was turning water into intoxicating wine for those who where drunk or trying to get drunk, then, Jesus would have been guilty of sin. JESUS WAS NOT A SINNER.

Christians who drink socially need to reevaluate there motives for their alcohol consumption.

If social drinking is acceptable to God, then beer and wine should be served at all church functions where coffee and soft drinks are served.------ I THINK NOT.
