It is said by some Jesus Christ drank fermented âalcoholicâ wine . The word God clearly states kings and priests are to abstain period. Lev.10:9; Pro. 31:4-5. It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: 5 Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.
I want to be very clear what my position is. Iâm not here for strife or confusion. Pro. 3:30; 2Tim. 2:14. Therein lies the problem. The word of God must be compared scripture with scripture, line upon line. Isa. 28:10, 13; 2 Tim. 2:15. Scripture must be interpreted with scripture. Using a verse here and there is a pretext for a proof text.
There is no such verse in scripture that teaches a âwise moderate use of alcoholâ. If anyone knows show my two or three verses rightly divided now is your chance. Proverbs 20:1 it âwineâmocks you to drink more. You are deceived that you can handle it. Strong drink causes you to rage to clamour, uproar, be troubledâ. If Christian believes alcohol in any amount is good, prove it with the word of God.
Mr. Lincoln, I hope you don't mind me asking, are you a liberal? If so, have you ever supported Barack Obama and the liberal worldview. By the way THE BIBLE teaches Christians to love our enemies and pray for those in authority. 1 Pet. 2:13-14; 1 Tim. 2:1-2. This also goes for ALL of us who are saved. Remember a lot of these people arenât souls.
Dr. Tim, the problem with the argument you used is that:
1. You assume that there is only 1 King James Version, when in point of fact, it has been changed. Furthermore you fail to recognize that the Oxford and Cambridge edition of the KJV differ from each other, which leads to the question, "Which KJV is the perfect word of God?"
2. Your argument is an appeal to tradition, thus it can be likened to a Roman Catholic argument.
3. The KJV was mostly based on Tyndale's version, thus it could rightly be called a revision of Tyndale's Bible.
4. People such as the late R.C. Sproul, did not use the KJV in their preaching and ministry, however the ministry has flourished over America and other places, therefore shall we say that the NASB, ESV, etc. are starting to have a greater influence?
5. It also assumes that a version that is used by God in a great and mighty way must then be the perfect word of God, there's no logical connection between the two.
But I do have to ask you, when the KJV does not agree with the TR, do you hold to the position that the KJV corrects the TR?
Where is your evidence for assumptions? These questions have been answered over and over again for years. This question is for all the commente
