What is the Biblical position on alcohol? Not the position of the church today or the church 300 years ago, but the biblical position. How can something made at a wedding by Christ, offered in the temple and tabernacle be evil? No profane thing could be brought across the temple's threshold, yet it was part of the daily sacrifices. Let's not try to help God by giving bad exegesis on certain texts, and look at the biblical position instead.
Great Sermon! It‚Äôs amazing that a preacher would promote something that has destroyed so many lives. All things are lawful but not all things are profitable. Pastors especially have the ability to be either a strengthening pattern or a stumbling block before the children of God. Not to mention the younger generation who looks to the adults for direction and instruction. Pride in liberty leads to pain in jeopardy.

Interesting and Provocative Sermon Difficult topic and a decent presentation of a view many will disagree with.
God commends wine but condemns drunkenness. Many assume it requires moderation, as does brother Urroz. It appears to make sense with the way we are programmed to think these days.

Great Sermon! Excellent Sermon - It is unfortunate how misguided our brothers and sisters are, how weak their arguments, and how scripture is mishandled when it comes to speaking against God's good gift of drinking. Thank you for this sermon, an excellent exegesis of Scripture.
Worth a Listen! Very interesting sermon. I believe you are quite correct and this needs to be said. I also believe many generally Bible believing brothers and sisters will unfortunately not accept your exegesis of Scripture although it's sound.
